BLAME? IT'S YEAR SIX OF A PRESIDENCY:

Democrats start to point fingers (Alexander Bolton, 10/06/14, The Hill)

Democrats are starting to play the blame game as they face the possibility of losing the Senate in November.

Tempers are running high a month out from Election Day, with polls showing Democratic candidates trailing in the crucial battleground states that will decide whether control of Congress flips to Republicans.

The behind-the-scenes tension broke into the open last week when former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) questioned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) decision not to endorse Democrat Rick Weiland in South Dakota's Senate race.  

Pro-immigrant advocacy groups, meanwhile, are saying Democrats should not blame them if Latino voters don't turn up to the polls on Election Day. They say President Obama made a tactical blunder by postponing an executive order easing deportations.
