Angry moochery.

That's what they are wanting out of re-election.

Read their posts EVERY DAY since the election, and that's the summary.

"The rich better pay or else"

"Olive garden better pay or else"

"Crush them Republicans"
I was watching Bret Baiers show yesterday and during the panel Bret asked Kirsten Powers that it seems to him that democrats, and Obama in particular, are really less interested in compromise than scalps, as in making the republicans pay. Kirsten Powers said from who she's talked to in dem circles it's all about scalps. I already knew that of course, especially after listening to Geithners interview with CNBC and Obama's talk earlier, but it was interesting to hear it from a dem. With that knowledge it would cause me to completely change strategy from one of finding middle ground to one of painting dems in a corner. Seems to me Boehner is still stuck on trying to please Obama when it's completely uncalled for, to put it painfully mildly.
