Why Democrats lost in 1994

tedraice at Corrente Wire

One of the stupider myths among progressives (one embraced both by the MSM and Obama fans) is that it was the Clinton’s fault the Congress went Republican in 1994.

The reality was exactly the reverse: Congressional Dems decided that they didn’t need to support Bill on health care, and that he and not they would suffer the consequences from that failure to deliver. It was the Congressional Dems who betrayed the party, allowed the GOP to take over, and forced Clinton to move right simply in order to survive. (The treated Carter in similar fashion, and suffered almost the same result, proving that it isn’t only Goppers who don’t learn from their mistakes.)
