In Flyover Country: Why our job just got harder

Excerpted from this post at In Flyover Country

Our good buddy John Bresnahan writes at the Politico that Nancy Pelosi
is exerting her power, and made it clear to Rahm Emanuel that under no
circumstances was the Congress to be counted on as an "automatic" for
Obama's agenda. What a nice change. Too bad it's about 8 years too
late. We often hear how social conservatives are the root evil of the
party. If social conservatives would just fall in line and act like
good little boys and girls, they say, then our party could move
forward and get new voters. What they fail to recognize is, the social
conservatives have been working hard and been loyal foot soldiers, yet
they never get thanked. They always just get blamed. Take this last
election, for instance.
