  •  How can you say the Republican won't fold... (1+ / 0-)

    when neither the President nor the Dem congress has yet to put any serious heat on them?  Use the damn bully pulpit!  Have Dem leaders holding press conferences daily blasting the Republicans for the damage they are doing to working families and our country.  Present clear charts and figures showing who is affected and how much by Republican intransigence.  Don't mealy mouth it, place the blame squarely where it belongs and shout it from the rooftops day after day.  Rake them over the damn coals!  Then we'll see if the Republicans will fold or not.

    But no, the Dems are too busy making nice with their congressional comity and esteemed colleagues. And the President just wants a big legacy boosting deal - it doesn't really matter if it's any good for the country or not.  We are a spineless party who won't really knuckle down and fight for anything and the hardcore Republicans know this.
