The Daily Kos is already spinning this against the left
Instead of admitting they were wrong. That not fighting for Universal Healthcare, that not fighting for closing Gitmo, that not fighting for spending money on the public instead of on the rich were all the wrong things to do and would drive voters away, the corporatist swine over at Daily Kos are instead trying to blame this debacle on – yeah, you saw this one coming – the left.
You see, according to their twisted spinmongers, it’s not that Americans refused to turn out to vote for Dems because the Dems turned their backs on Americans. It’s because we turned on the Dems.
Got that? We didn’t vote for Dems because we turned on them. Not that they turned on us. And we turned on them because…..?
Universal Healthcare was off the table.
The Public Option failed.
Gitmo stays open.
We’re still fighting in Iraq.
The same guys Bush had in his cabinet are in Obama’s cabinet.
The same guys who destroyed the economy are running the show.
I could go on and on, but the fact of the matter is this: Dems lost because the Dems turned on US, not the other way around. Of course, you can’t expect the spinmeisters at Daily Kos to admit this. Because they’re too busy turning on us as well.
