I've already written in one comment that I'm very disenchanted right now. Somehow, we're still in Iraq, don't have universal healthcare, don't have stem cell funding. We're seeing pushes for offshore drilling. And this week, our party assumed the position when it comes to FISA.
What was even more infuriating is to see candidates that many candidates heavily supported the grassroots and the Netroots (both in the more limited sense that includes the page DailyKos, Swing State Project, etc collaborate on. and the broader sense to include all of the liberal websites such as Democracy for America and MoveON). It's both heartbreaking and infuriating to see people like Patrick Murphy, Kirsten Gillibrand, Nancy Boyda, Jim Webb, and Jerry McNerney, people we thought would be the vanguard of the coming progressive era, vote they way they do, with the likes of Murphy and Gillibrand joining the Blue Dogs!
