Midterm Election Recap and Lessons Learned
November 4, 2010 · By Steve Cobble
As Republicans take back the House with little more than inchoate rage and promises of "smaller government," how do progressives respond?
Was it Obama that caused Democrats' major midterm losses? Racism? The economy? Why was the Democratic base demoralized--failure to take on Wall Street or immigration reform? And which constituencies did come out to vote? These are all questions worth answering the morning after the Republicans take back the House with little more than inchoate rage and promises of "smaller government."
IPS Senior Scholar Steve Cobble joined GritTV for their special live coverage with Free Speech TV , Democracy Now! and more, and provided this morning-after analysis--and a warning for 2012: Obama better keep his eyes on his left flank as well. Cobble appears at the 14 min mark.
