Notes to Democrats
You do NOT have a mandate – You won by a far smaller margin in the popular vote than in 2008 (7% vs. 2%, at latest count). You barely cleared 50% of the popular vote. That is not a mandate; it’s a squeaker.
What will be your excuse now? – Every time you were questioned about where the “change” was, you blamed it on the obstructionist Congress. While they indeed share the blame, they’re still there. The composition of the Congress has not changed significantly. Please explain to me using nothing but logic and common sense how things will be different now. NOTE: If you tell me Obama couldn’t be bold in term one because it would have hurt his chance at re-election, then you’ve told me everything I need to know about the man and his priorities. Between now and when we reach the “fiscal cliff”, the President might want to read up on people like Bill Clinton and Lyndon Johnson…you know, people who actually knew how to get things done. He might also try to develop a backbone.
Notes to Republicans
Dump your leadership – McConnell, Boehner and Cantor have gotten you nowhere.
Ignore the fringe – Democrats don’t have to run to the fringe during their primary process. You continue to do so, leaving Democrats with an arsenal full of sound bites that keep getting you creamed in general elections. Those people are not going to vote for the Democrats in a general election, and simply make you look crazy.
Stop with the Bible-thumping – This is another aspect of your party that gets you nowhere, and many of us are sick and tired of it.
Amend your vocabulary – Don’t ever say the word “rape” again…ever.
Immigrants – They’re here…get over it. If you keep alienating them, you will keep losing.
Misogyny – Stop it. Just stop it. I’m a man, and I find it completely offensive.
Demographics – Start trying to learn something about it.
