I think the dems have over played there hand for to long and got real brazen, over confident and cocky, when they took the WH, House and Senate. This really could end up being a blessing, although it doesn't appear that way right now. I think the dems are done.
I can personally attest to the fact she was avoiding constituents like the plague. I finally got someone to answer locally and I protested government run health care. The young man who answered snidely asked Well do you want government out of Medicare and Medicaid as well? I answered, I don’t want government to run any of our programs because they can’t run anything effectively - including a failing postal services. You are right the Dems jumped the shark and, I agree, it was a blessing for all to see just who they really are and what they really believe. I don’t like the pain we are going through but I believe there will be a light in November 2010. And, hopefully in 2012 we can finally rid ourselves of Landrieu!
