I dread learning the details of this deal our leaders have come up with.
No matter how awful a job President Obama does, most Democrats continue to say: “But we gotta support him. You don’t want the Republicans to win, do you?”
Barack Obama is not Al Gore, and 2012 is not 2000. Unlike Obama, Gore did not actively protect and aide the Republicans. At some point, Democrats have got to stand up and put their feet down or they’ll look pretty ridiculous.
Of course, let’s not forget: the Republicans are worse and they should be shouted down and harassed at town meetings and in front of their offices. Their policies are cruel and unreasonable. Progressives and other Democrats need to be angrier, louder, and more insistent.
