Democrats warn: Don't get cocky
By JONATHAN ALLEN | 2/21/12 4:27 AM EST
Democrats have plenty of reason to feel good right now: The economys improving, the presidents numbers are up, their prospects for holding the Senate have brightened, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is confidently predicting that shell have a shot to regain the speakers gavel next year.
Television screens and news pages are full of stories about new Democratic momentum.
But on the ground level, Democrats newfound optimism is heavily salted with caution. The confidence is tempered by the knowledge that the political environment can change in an instant, especially when the resurgence owes to a fragile economic recovery and the fact that three wave elections in a row havent sated the pitchfork politics of a nation that hates its capital.
Im not putting a lot of stock in snapshots, said Sen. Bob Casey, a first-term Democrat who is on the ballot this year in Pennsylvania. I think any incumbents going to have a challenge this year. Its still a challenging environment. I know some data shows that things have improved, but I know that a couple of months ago it was otherwise.

God help us if these people win. God help us now defeat tham I pray.
$5 a gallon gas should be a small reality check...
When in decades HAVEN'T they been ? That's what comes from the left having near-absolute control of the media.
Libs don't live in Realville.
We need to be on our toes when it comes to gas prices.
Remember, gas was 4 dollars a gallon at one time during President Bush's term and it eventually fell to 2 dollars. RATS accused him of colluding with Saudi Arabia to manipulate oil prices to help him get re-elected.
If there's one thing we should know about Libs by now is that they accuse Republicans of engaging in the very tactics and behavior that they practice themselves.
So, if it's possible to bring gas prices down in time for President Bush's re-election, it will certainly be possible to bring them down in time for Urkel's.
Be alert. The world needs more lerts.
“Fellow rats... do not believe our own bullshit... yes it sounds really good and demoralizes our enemies... but remember... we are all liars. That is all”.
....The economys improving,...”
The parallel universes on Fringe are easier to navigate that this democRAT Fantasyland.
Only in the world of Leftico is everything rosy. Everyone knows the labor stats are lies and bunk, no one thinks the economy is better. Obama's numbers are not getting better. Gas is at 5$ and all other economic indicators are bad.
Democrats warn dont get cocky, the sheeple may see through our lies.
God help them if they win and the idiots that vote for them.
The economys improving,....? I just bought my girlfriend’s daughter heating oil for $4.69 and the economy is improving? I just paid $3300 for a tuna fishing trip because my Captain has high diesel fuel bills, and the economy is improving? These barstards can’t even lie realistically.
Democrats have plenty of reason to feel good right now: The economys improving,
The BIG LIE.. The economy is improving.
The Obama view of an improving economy.
You were unemployed for 1.5 years but now you have a job.
Obama- The economy is improving!
Reality. Your original job was full time and paid $20 an hour and you had full benefits. Gas was 2.85 a gallon
Your new job is part time, pays $10 with no benefits and gas cost $3.95 a gallon.
Reality and Obama do not mix.................
A Jumbo Jack you got for a buck under Bush costs three bucks today. Who knows what gas will be later this month? But I wouldn’t want to throw any reality into Politico’s self congratulation masturbation.
Bagdad Bob school of PR.
Laughed so hard, you owe me a new keyboard.
Three years of misery driving people into government dependency, then 1 year of improvement to convince them to vote for the same administration - a Very Good Plan. Re-elect. Repeat.
Thank you and excellent posters!
By my count there are precisely two and only two sane members remaining in the Democrat Party. Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell. But don’t worry, since they work for Fox none of the other Dems are listening to them.
