I have done exactly what this person describes - however I have done so because this President and this Congress -with a solid majority for the Dems have failed to do anything. They were so hung up on having 60 votes in the Senate (but even then could do NOTHING) Lets remember that GW Bush did not have the majority that the Dems have and he did whatever the hell he wanted. The Dems risk more results like Massachusetts unless they start leading on the issues they promised those that voted for them.
From The daily dish...
I'm a 24 year old Massachusetts resident. I plugged my nose and I voted for Martha Coakley. But that's all I did. In the months leading up to Barack Obama's historic win, I made phone calls, I drove up to New Hampshire and I walked door to door in support of a candidate who I knew could finally bring up positive change in this country. But I, like many young voters checked out after that.
Even though I knew the work had only just begun, I got complacent. I didn't even vote in the Massachusetts' primary. I stopped making phone calls, I stopped e-mailing friends and family and I stopped making my opinion heard. For me, it was enough to simply post a link on Facebook to one of your blog entries.
The Scott Brown win was enough to wake me up and I hope it was enough to wake up the millions of young Obama supports across the nation who have gotten lazy in the last year. Give up now? Are you kidding me? Now is the time to get fired up. Now is the time to write letters, make phone calls, and send e-mail. If we can get a skinny black guy with a middle name of Hussein elected, we can overcome an upset in Massachusetts.
