"Scared to not be in the majority", "still think they need to do whatever the president acts", "fear they will be considered soft on terrorism". WTF?
What country are the democratic leaders living in? I know I have a left skewed perception living in New York City, and all, but how many Americans out there want our Federal government to be able to spy on us? Show of hands? One, two, mumble-mumble, Cheney put your hand down.... yup, looks like 14, maybe fifteen, but you only have your hand halfway up, sir.
New plan. Instead of this elect-a-democratic-majority-and-expect-them-to-do-what-we-want strategy, why not just start over. I'm thinking we can replace our entire democratic elected official cadre in little less than ten years. How's that sound?
