The strategy

Still not clear whether it will work, but...
The slimmed-down jobs bill that cleared the Senate on Wednesday is only the first of several the majority leader plans to bring up for votes between now and November. Reid’s thinking: He’ll either rack up a series of wins for the Democrats, or he’ll get ammunition to use against Republicans if they unite in opposition.

“One of two things is going to happen,” said Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. “Either we’re going to smoke them out on the merits, or they’re going to wear this mantle of obstructionism.”

(It's nice to know that the November elections are the focus, not, you know, the needs of the American people.)


  • Americans have been conditioned to fear a government that acts in the best interest of the people. They are conditioned to believe that "America" cannot do great things... to solve great problems... at that we shouldn't even try.

    We are already a weaker country because of this. Eventually the inertia of our lopsided wealth will run out and we, the lower 95%, will collapse under the weight of the upper 5%. But it won't matter, because democracy will be dead anyway.

    Just ranting. Not even sure I have a point...
