    Schuler and Matheson are the reasons the Blue Dog Caucus is as small as it is after Tuesday’s election results, and it’s time for them to STFU before there are fewer still after November 2012. My Blue Dog ran away from the democrats in his district by moving farther to the right in an attempt to appeal to the far right voters in the district. It didn’t work. He caused many democrats in the district to become sick of him and skip his name on the ballot which allowed his republican opponent to win the district. I had warned him of this in a series of emails last year about how/why he voted on important legislation like the ACA and financial reform, and he blew me off. I informed him that he’d be coming back to GA, and he will, unless he takes a job in DC with some lobbying firm. Since he is a Blue Dog, I don’t find this a likely occurrence since it will be a type of repayment to him from Big Business for his votes against healthcare and financial reform.
