Now We Fight

The DNC doesn't have anything to say about the election results, but I do:

Now. We. Fight.

First, some perspective, which I've posted before:

The repugs picked up far than the 100 Democratic seats in the House and 14 in the Senate that they predicted they would, therefore the entire election is a MASSIVE FAILURE by republicans, a HUGE VICTORY for the Democratic Party, and an ENORMOUS MANDATE for President Obama to jam down Congress' throat every bit of his liberal agenda - repealing DADT and DOMA, passing ENDA, EFCA and a $3 trillion deficit-financed jobs/stimulus/infrastructure bill. And not just cancelling the Bush tax cuts for the rich, but increasing the rate to 75 percent for the duration of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

However many seats Democrats lost in the House and the Senate, most losing Democratic incumbents were Blue Dog/DINO/traitors whose departure is good riddance and a terrific boon for the Democratic Party. The more Blue Dog seats the Democratic Party loses, the STRONGER that makes the Democratic Party and President Obama, because the party has shed traitors who voted with repugs anyway. The fewer Blue Dogs, the more Democratic, cohesive, loyal and determined the Democratic Party is.

Many of those losing Blue Dogs are freshmen who beat repug incumbents by riding President Obama's 2008 coattails. President Obama is not on the ballot this year, which lowers turnout among the many new voters who turned out specifically for him in 2008 and will do so again in 2012.

No matter how many seats the Democratic Party loses in the House and the Senate, it is good news for President Obama in 2012.

What now?

Now. We. Fight.
