In a recent Washington Post article entitled "Democrats digging harder than ever for dirt on Republicans", Democrats are showing their change in tactics in order to keep their seats in Congress. Instead of standing on their records (or lack thereof), they have decided to play dirty politics.
In past elections, Democrats have stated that they are above dirty politics. Since their records are being carefully examined, they have nothing to offer their constituents. Look at health care reform. Over 60% of Americans want to repeal the law. They just don't want to reform or amend it. They want it repealed.
During the 2008 Presidential elections, Americans were told that there would be change. They promised transparency and no more of the business as usual. It didn't happen. We saw Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi making deals to get health care reform passed. We saw closed door sessions and very limited television debate.
So much for change.
