Eugene Robinson - Where's the Democrats' fighting spirit?:
"'Why don't they fight back?'
That's the question I've been hearing from the Democratic Party's stunned and dispirited base. For the past month, I've been on a book tour that has taken me to Asheville, N.C., Terre Haute, Ind., Austin and elsewhere. Everywhere I go, supporters of President Obama and his agenda ask me why so many Democrats in Washington don't stand up for what they say they believe."
I doubt they could negotiate themselves out of a wet paper bag.
Paul Abrams: The White House Needs to Take "Negotiation 101":
"What makes the White House believe that, having achieved a bloodless victory, Republicans will settle for less than 100% of what they want when they actually have the majority?
Toughen up, bitches. No, I mean it. Sick of pussy Dems (I'm looking at you, voting Dems).
Obama Without Tears | The Nation:
"People who still have great hope for Obama can help revive his presidency, but only if they toughen up themselves. Stop holding his hand (he's an adult) and start building a people's agenda that compels the president to change his. Obama won't like this at first—his own supporters talking back—but he can learn to draw strength from their courage. If people fail to step up with their own message, the president will likely fail with his."
Shocking. See Negotiations 101.
