Another article to make your head explode

First off, Evan Bayh is an idiot:

Senator Evan Bayh, Democrat of Indiana, said the atmosphere was a serious threat to Democrats. “I do think there’s a chance that Congressional elites mistook their mandate,” Mr. Bayh said. “I don’t think the American people last year voted for higher taxes, higher deficits and a more intrusive government. But there’s a perception that that is what they are getting.”

Yes, those congressional elites did mistake their mandate. You were not elected to be a wimp, sir. Yet far too often over the last year we’ve seen Democrats refuse to even fight for their promises, and then cave all too quickly to the first Republican, or conservative Democrat, who says boo. It’s not surprising that the American people, across the board, are not impressed.

Then there’s this:

Still, some Democrats are wondering if Mr. Obama would be in a better position now if he had embraced a less ambitious health care proposal, as some aides urged, permitting him to pivot more quickly on the economy. Depending on what happens Tuesday, that is a debate that might be reverberating in the White House for a long time to come.

Yeah, that’s it. You were all just too freaking bold with that health care reform juggernaut. Jesus, is our party ever going to learn? They honestly think that they’re in the pickle they’re in because they’ve been “too” bold.

Yeah, right. Your courage is just blinding.
