The recall is lost and the Democrats still don't get it
The Dems must get over their contempt for their opponents. No, the opponents are not motivated by fear, stupidity and hate. They are motivated by their own financial interests which have been subordinated for years to the wants of public unions who are organized and who elect their legislator negotiators.
I am a Democrat despairing at the ugly, closed minded attitude of the Dem party and the liberals who think they are on the side of the angels. Doing the same policy over and over despite loss is insane - not recognizing the needs of your own base is insane. The public unions need to unite with the low income workers even if that means loss of some perks -- or they will lose everything to the anger of the oppressed.
While the Dems refuse to change their policies and stand with their base, the environment and women suffer from Repub policies. The Dems think the crumbs they offer women will bring them into the Dem fold despite their economic conflict of interest. But it is not working. The Dems have to change their policy about public workers and illegal immigration and voter ID. Their current positions are unacceptable to the non-public union working class.
