Democratic candidates all but ignore their legislative successes By Janet Hook, Tribune Washington Bureau August 9, 2010 Washington â As Democrats fan out across the country to campaign for reelection this month, many are surprisingly quiet about their hard-won accomplishments â the major bills they have passed under President Obama. In an effort coordinated with the White House, congressional leaders are urging Democrats to focus less on bragging about what they have done â a landmark healthcare law, a sweeping overhaul of Wall Street regulation and other far-reaching policy changes http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-dems-august-20100809,0,6906697.story?track=rss =========== Gosh, I'm confused. According to Dems and the MSM those are some of the greatest legislative achievements in nearly two generations . . . perhaps in the history of the republic. Why in the world would they not tout them at every available opportunity?
