Skip to comments.November doesn't need to be a nightmare for Democrats (delusional Democrat barf)

The Democratic Party got a resounding wake-up call from the voters of Massachusetts on Tuesday. But it's long been clear that 2010 would be a challenging election year for our party.
With few exceptions, the first off-year election in a new president's term has led to big gains for the minority party -- this was true for Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. After two election cycles in which Democrats won most of the close races and almost all of the big ones, Democrats have much more fragile turf to defend this year than usual. Add to that a historic economic crisis, stubborn unemployment and the pain that both have inflicted on millions of Americans, and you have a recipe for a white-knuckled ride for many of our candidates.
But not if Democrats do what the American people sent them to Washington to do.
In 2006 and 2008, voters sent an unmistakable message: We want decisive change. This was not just a change of political parties. Instead of a government that works for the entitled and special interests, a government that looks out for Wall Street, they wanted a government that works better for them, a government that plays the role it should to help foster the security of the middle class.
Many of last year's accomplishments are down payments on those principles.
We still have much to do before November, and time is running short. Every race has unique characteristics, but there are a few general things that Democrats can do to strengthen our hand.
-- Pass a meaningful health insurance reform package without delay. Americans' health and our nation's long-term fiscal health depend on it. I know that the short-term politics are bad. It's a good plan that's become a demonized caricature.

Surely Plouffe doesn’t believe this garbage he’s spewing..?
Obama can hire his old campaign guy it changes nothing.
Economy will not improve with their policies. People still hate that bill.
Worse for him, the unknown factor has worn off. The excitement over electing a young minority has retreated.
The Chicago paid thug gets a ra-ra cheerleading piece placed in the WaPo.
Hey David...it doesn’t have to be shill-age either...but it is.
Obama is making Plouffe the head of his politburo.
He gets paid by the word...his bank account is what he believes.
George W Bush had GAINS in his first mid term elections.
This time the dems are going to the woodshed. They will lose the house and the senate.
Reid will be gone. Boxer may be gone. Murtha possibly.
Specter the slug.
Whew. They so do not get it...they think shouting about Bush some more will make up for their horrendous misconduct in office.
So what Plouffe is telling Dims is: “Do what you’ve been doing, only more and harder.”
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
laughed real hard reading this scribe..by all means dem candidates..please please campaign on the “stimulus”..that will quickly send you on your way to being “ex-congressmen”..
The expectations game is starting early this year. I always expected Zero would be a 24/365 campaigner president.
“Surely Plouffe doesnt believe this garbage hes spewing..?”
Worse..America doesn’t believe it.
I predict the Kenyan’s numbers will continue to decline. America is starting to personally dislike him.
Plouffe is a Goebbels sandwiched into Pravda.
No one wants Marxist OKenyan or his a-hole cronies or Lib Dems who cry for Communism.
2010 will be a bloodbath.
Looks like that idiot hasn’t gotten the message that the people don’t want it
Yes, but don't do anything to disabuse the dims of this notion. They are digging their own political graves by insisting 'It's a good bill' and 'The people want it'.
More Schadenfreude for us come November. What brings more satisfaction than socking a bully and watching him cry?
Congratulations, David. You have just received your MBA (Mandatory Barf Alert) an honor usually reserved for the likes of Maureen Dowd.
This steaming pile of bovine manure needs to return to its place of origin without delay.
Hey Plouffe, the middle class has never suffered so much since Obozo was elected. What any person with a brain knows, the far left wants to destroy the middle class.
It is just now that people are figuring that out.
