Reply to "Prez Obama: Democratic Voter Apathy Inexcusable, VP Biden tells Dems to Stop Whining"

And let me just add one more thing here ....

It's not that the Democrats - both the Party and the voters - are total and complete inactive participants in the political arena ... but they DON'T get the same kind of competitive media coverage and attention that the Repubs do .... simply because they aren't fire-breathing, hatemongers .... which feeds the media's quest for controversy, division, and sensationalized news!! 

Many individuals and groups (such as Speaker Pelosi, the Congressional Black Caucus, Harry Reid and other Democratic Leaders and activists) have a press conference just about every day!!  But, unless you go on the web to the House or Senate website, you're not likely to hear ANYTHING that they have to say!!

The news outlets may cover them, but they don't broadcast them what is being said ... unless they find some kind of mud-slinging, controversy-starting, political-dig slant to one sentence out of the whole statement ... and then they play it ad-nauseum hoping to generate some kind of negative response from the Republican side!! 

Now ... that's not to say the Dems can't do better or more to get their point across (some choice, cussing-out, rants against the shiggidy the Republicans are putting out could be quite advantageous in this event!) ... but, even their little (weak) opposition might have a little more impact .... if it was actually getting out in front of the public to see.

But that doesn't happen.  And that's not really the Democrats fault.  The (disgusting) media is wholly to blame for what is .. and is not .. considered "news".
