  •  This is precisely wrong. (0+ / 0-)

    The Democratic leadership doesn't do this because they're scared.

    They do it because they're not scared enough.

    Like the Republicans, leading Democrats are militarist authoritarians whose bills are being payed by big corporations. Yes, they're not as bad as the GOP.  But that's pretty cold comfort.

    Telecommunications companies are splitting their money almost 50/50 these days.  46% of telcom money is going to Democrats this election cycle. And the telcoms are getting what they're paying for from both major parties.

    The only way to stop the Democrats from behaving like this is to scare them.  

    They don't need to grow a spine. They need their base to put the fear of God into them.

    Corporate Democrats behave best when they're running scared of the progressives on whose support they rely.

    This nicely summarizes what's wrong with American political life today. (Source)
