It’s sort of odd that in an election where Democrats are doing badly because they failed to do more to revive the economy, they’re foundering for a message while facing opponents who are promising to do even less.
It is something more than sort of odd. It’s a demonstration of a truly massive failure to seize their opportunity, fix the economy, and make the Tea Party (or, even better, the Republican Party) electorally insignificant. And as a result, it’s likely that voters will end up voting in a party who only promises to make their lives and this economy worse. Yes, this is more than sort of odd.
