    Pelosi was promising reps they would sweep to victory in 2010 on Obamacare.
    Talk about whistling past the graveyard.

    Does anyone take anything Steny Hoyer says seriously?

    The dems see the writing on the wall, a GOP Congress and "no money to waste". They can go back to being lobbyists and lawyers. They don't want to be in DC when the economy crashes.

    (Congressman Frank's announcement of his impending retirement came on the same day as a New York Times web article remarking on what a brilliant idea it was for the Obama 2012 Campaign to jettison the Working Class Whites in favor of focusing on the LGBT intelligentsia, Hispanics and African Americans in their efforts to win re election for the Great Socialist. Just ironic that Barney took his leap out the fifth floor electoral window the same day it was made public the Democratic Party was throwing Joe Lunchpail under the bus.)

    "Obviously there is a lot of snark which could be thrown around, but this represents a bigger deal than Barney. As more and more senior Democrats retire, the realization is sinking in that there is no next generation of Democrats.

    The younger generation of Democrats in Congress was wiped out in 2010 (along with some senior Democrats as well). On the eve of the 2010 elections I wrote:

    The Democrats face a political decapitation tomorrow.

    Dozens of senior Democratic Party leaders in the House and Senate, and in Statehouses around the country, are likely to lose. Unlike Republicans in 2008, there is no next generation of Democratic leaders.

    Who are the Democratic Party equivalents of Marco Rubio, Mitch Daniels, John Thune, Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan or Eric Cantor?

    The Republican Party has numerous rising stars. I cannot think of a single Democratic Party rising star.

    Can you?

    The Democratic congressional problem remains the same. Democrats in Congress have lost both their past and their future. Barney Frank’s retirement is just another example."

    My thoughts exactly... there is a cataclysmic global economic calamity right around the corner brought on by nearly a century of progressive vote buying schemes that can no longer be supported.

    Fuck ammo, better stock up on non-perishables.
