Democratic Policy Chaos

Let’s consider some of the ways in which Democrats are letting their base down:

1. Nancy Pelosi may be willing to extend the Bush tax cuts for upper-income Americans, though to be sure, it would be through gritted teeth.

2. 31 other House Democrats are even more enthusiastic about extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.

3. “Democratic candidates are spending three times more advertising against the health reform law than they are in support of it.”

Anyone really think that the Democratic base is going to be happy about these developments, and is therefore going to be as motivated to vote for Democratic candidates as Republicans are motivated to vote for Republican candidates?

Yeah, me neither.
