Are Democrats turning on each other?

Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Democrat Frank Caprio, in a radio interview this morning, reacted angrily to President Obama's decision not to endores him during a visit to R.I. today. He can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I'm concerned, Caprio said.

  • So, you’re President of the United States and the de facto leader of your party.  But your party wants nothing to do with you as it struggles to retain control of Congress.

  • Incumbent Democrats distance themselves from Washington


    Pennsylvania congressman Jason Altmire’s television ads assert “he’s not afraid to stand up to the President.”


    Indiana congressman Joe Donnelly’s commercials tout his vote “against Nancy Pelosi’s energy tax on Hoosier families.”


    Down in Texas, Chet Edwards trumpets his opposition to both Barack Obama and Ms. Pelosi, the House of Representatives Speaker, declaring he “voted no against their trillion-dollar health bill and no to cap-and-trade.”

  • LOL! I love it! I saw this on tv this morning. Maybe the real Dems are realizing their party has been hijacked.

  • Maybe they shouldn't be letting lobbyists write legislation that they won't read.

  • And don't forget, "Even if Democrats win, Pelosi faces opposition to remain as speaker"


    With House Democrats already bracing for steep losses in the midterm elections, at least five of Pelosi's colleagues have announced in the past two weeks that they would not support her remaining as speaker, should Democrats retain the majority. More than a dozen others have told local and national media that they would consider backing a different Democrat.

  • No. It's called survival of the fittest. And in order to win, democrats have to oppose all that Obama has done and voice it loud and clear for the next 7 days. too little too late I'm afraid, Joe Manchin is running on Republican ideologies in WV and Raese has done little to campaign, all Raese needs is the R behind his name. With Manchin admitting he never read the health care bill and asking for forgiveness, he will still lose.Campaigning on the statement " I'm a different kind of Democrat" is now spreading. The only thing a Rep. has to do to win this midterm is show the opponent voted for HC and the stimulus. It's really nice to see Democrats lose everything they have in just 2 short years, I would have thought they would have put up a better fight.
