Why is it that Democrats have absolutely no balls? They remind me of the dorky kids in high school who are constantly bullied by the jocks but can never find the testicular fortitude to band together, use their resources and fight back. At the moment, Obama has the bully pulpit and in a lame duck session, Congress could still push through the bills they have been meaning to, but will they? No. Instead like an abused animal, they'll crawl behind the nearest place they can hide and piss on the floor.
Rather than take credit for the things they've done, they allow the opposition to mis-characterize it and then run from their own accomplishments. Sure, the health care and finance reform bills weren't perfect but at least take pride that something was done, even if it still needs some work. I was watching TV last night and Michael Moore was on doing an interview with MSNBC. He pretty much summed up what I felt when it comes to Republicans in politics. I don't like most of them but you have to admire their balls and complete brazenness when it comes political tactics. Already they have begun to back away from their promised spending cuts stating that it will take a long time, not a couple years. Democrats, if they had any savvy, would have already jumped on that, but will they? Not likely.
