If stalling is a viable strategy, why be surprised that some Dems are even promoting LOSING as a winning prospect? Really. Last week Tony Coelho told Adam Nagourney that NOT gaining majorities in the House and Senate might be better for Democrats, since then they won’t be blamed for the mess the country is in.
“The most politically advantageous thing for the Democrats is to pick up 11, 12 seats in the House and three or four seats in the Senate but let the Republicans continue to be responsible for government,” Coelho, a former House Democratic whip, told the Times. “We are heading into this period of tremendous deficit, plus all the scandals, plus all the programs that have been cut. This way, they get blamed for everything.”
No wonder the punks always lose. They WANT to lose!
