That was a statement from Politico. It is more a statement of how the Democratic Party somewhat abandoned their post during the House elections of 2010. It is even more important in the year 2012 that citizns feeling desperate enough to abandon their principles to vote for extremists or be lead to do so by wrongful media intent be given a better chance.
In Senate and House seats it is important Democrats take their residency seriously and campaign for their candidates this year. Get out the vote.
