John Deeth Blog: Boswell on GOP "Dem Retirement Assault List"

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

National Journal: "GOP strategists are putting extra pressure on more
than a dozen Dem lawmakers, hoping to convince them to retire rather
than face difficult re-elections." ... Hey, Repubs: I'm with ya on
this one, but let the record show I was doing it before you were....
Why, Deeth, why? 1) the war vote in 2002 2) chronically underperforms
the district 3) doomed to lose a redistricting matchup with Tom Latham
but most of all 4) despite a little bit better voting record (thanks,
Ed, for the push) he continues to self-ID as a Blue Dog. Quit the Blue
Dogs, Leonard, then call me.
