No talk by Democrats on how they missed the message, failed to communicate their side, failed to counter the untruths in cookie cutter campaign ads for Republicans from coast to coast, a failure to take politics to the need of the local grass roots that has always been the base of the Democratic party and a strong feeling that Democrats have been bullying legislation instead of compromise. No talk of how in pushing for long time Democratic goals, which do benefit the little guy, they stepped on some big toes and failed to fully get the American people to understand their agenda.
Neither seem to admit the realities of war, war deficit, our near depression avoided through emergency action presented as "evil" in Republican ads. Neither seem to have heard the voice of the American public for government to work, to work together and make things better for all of us.
Republican feathers being plumed up, Democrats sulking like dogs who failed to hear the voice of their masters.
And not much talk of or realization of the big dollar, blind box, bias and even untruthful advertising by special interests masquerading as service organizations and good natured citizens.
Americans must improve in our listening skills, in our ability to compromise, in our tolerance of each other and of true debate, not shouting and yelling and arguing and polarization.
