I have to, in some perverse way, admire the audacity of the Democrats. It seems that in their minds there is no possible way that their hackneyed plans will not work.

I have to laugh that the last time we raised the minimum wage, we ended up with some of the worst job losses since the Great Depression, and yet the Democrats want to do it again.

Reid knows the labor unions are pissed about Keystone.  This is a big gimme to them since many labor contracts are tied to minimum wage, and increases in the minimum wage may well spell big new contracts for the union workers.
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

But he won't get it.

Democrats are desperate to fire up the base that never votes in mid-terms.  I don't see anything in their quiver that will bring these people to the polls.

Most low information voters vote for PEOPLE, not issues.  And most of them couldn't name their congressman if someone had a gun to their head.

Yeah, Reid wants to placate the unions and get some of their money.   But you're right.  I don't yet see anything other than the recently successful (2012) meme of Republican wars on blacks, gays, women and the poor.  And even Dems are now yawning over that one.  You can't go back to that well every time without something positive to offer.  And the Dems haven't anything at this point.
