If the Democrats in Congress were all drinking water from the same faucet, there might be a clue to their chronic fear of the craven and cruel corporatist Republicans who dominate them. But they don’t, so we have to ask why their fear, defeatism, and cowering behavior continues in the face of the outrageous GOP actions as the November election approaches.
The Democrats should be landsliding the worst Republican Party in history. Instead, Democrats let Boehner and Cantor peddle their unrebutted torrents of falsehoods to the voters in their districts.
Democrats are tortured daily by Republican leaders. Who’s fooling whom? The coming days await a new and open jolting push by prominent outside Democrats who fervently want to wrench their party back from the abyss, from its own self-imposed sense of dread before a devastating, self-inflicted November defeat.
