The AZ-7 Congressional voting district is over 50% Hispanic and overall, minorities comprise over 60%. In 2008, Grijalva won close to 63% of the vote. After late tabulations Thursday, in which many more Democrat votes were tallied, he claims victory with  around 49% of the vote. Apparently, this ass hat still thinks Americans want more Progressivism thrown at them. Now, Congressman/American hater AZ-7 says that most of the Blue Dogs are gone, so the Progressive Caucus is now the “party of no” when it comes to anything not progressive, but especially Republican.

As quoted from Mother Jones:

Republicans insist the results of Tuesday’s election give them a mandate to shove Washington to the right. But rather than make such concessions, Grijalva, co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus, believes the House Democrats left standing after this year’s epic wipeout must defend liberal ideals more fiercely than ever. In an interview on Wednesday, Grijalva vowed that House progressives would block any proposal that compromised their values—and he criticized President Obama for taking an accomodating approach to Republican lawmakers bent on obstructing his agenda…Instead, he continued, Obama “has to be an activist president”—one who “has to say no” to the Republican agenda…

Grijalva warned that members of his caucus would try to block any compromises with the Republicans that weren’t sufficiently progressive, even if it meant defying the White House…

“We’re going to be an obstacle to their agenda.” But Grijalva said that the public would not equate uncompromising progressives with obstructionist Republicans if and when they took such a stand…

Well, this guy lost voter support from 2008, but the message he got anyway was that Americans want more intense Progressivism. Keep that attitude and 2012 will be a nightmare for the Progressive agenda as freedom-loving Americans will throw these socialist/Marxist America-haters off the cliff.
