Liberal Democrats versus the Blue Dogs

What’s up, everybody? My name is Josh Melendez, and it’s my very first blog! I hale from the Cleveland, OH, but have been in NYC for nearly two years now. You will find me writing from the libertarian conservative perspective. As always, I will keep things spicy.

While, Nancy Pelosi continues to be a main powerbroker in the Democratic Party, the more moderate Blue Dogs in the party are being “punished” for not supporting her as Minority Leader. According to the National Journal, Pelosi was one of the most liberal representatives in the House in 2010 in terms of voting record, and the American Conservative Union ratings concur.

With the 2012 Elections forthcoming, it’s amazing that the Democratic Party is continuing to “snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.” Since the party insists on embracing far-left leadership, we had better take back the White House. After all, as the Pew Forum has reported throughout the entire decade of the 2000s, our nation is right-of-center. We won’t have the excuse of an economy going downhill to use next year, as we had in 2008.

  • Hey Josh,
    Congratulations on your first post. Absolutely must retake Senate and White House in 2012. Think we’ll see a big recovery this year? I’m thinking that in 2012 unemployment might still be the #1 issue!
