Was it a good political strategy for the Democrats to embrace the loony left?

Posted on February 21st, 2011 by admin1 in political strategy

And to purge the centrists? Isn’t it ridiculous to reelect Nancy Pelosi as minority leader. Aren’t voters correct in seeing the Dems as absurd?

Embrace them? They ARE them. I know, most Democrat "voters" aren’t leftists. Ideologically they aren’t even Democrats but literally 100% of elected Democrats are smashed-up against the left-side wall. NO ONE is to the left of a perfectly ordinary Democrat and NO ONE ever has been.

    Yes I agree completely. However, just as absurd, is the Republicans winning on the promise to cut the deficit on spending cuts only. Are they sure they can cut spending on Democratic programs when the Democrats are still the overall majority? We are looking at two stupid parties doing battle to solve complex problems. I do not see a good outcome. I am hoping for gridlock until some party or person with brains can figure out a sensible solution. However, I do agree that keeping Pelosi as minority leader was very stupid for the Democrats. People will vote out house Democrats just to ensure Pelosi doesn’t see the speaker of the house position again.References :

    That’s not what happened. The Blue Dogs, i.e., conservative Democrats, lost to conservative Republicans. If the Democrats could have maintained majority status while getting rid of the conservatives that would have been a good thing. Nancy Pelosi has done a great job as Speaker of the House.

    The Republicans are destined to fail because they have no worthwhile ideas and they keep pushing the same failed policies and theories that crashed the economy. Having them in charge of the House will be of political benefit to President Obama and the Democrats. It won’t be good for the country but one has to think longer term.References :
