  •  That's not leadership (0+ / 0-)

    Leadership would have gotten it passed.  We had 60 votes for 9 months.

    I'm tired of coward Democrats choosing popular views that will get them reelected versus doing the right thing.

    I'd rather see him go down as a fighter (even if it means Senator Angle) than be reelected as a coward.

      it was 58, plus Lie-ber-"man" and Sanders. But, the reality was, it wasn't even 58 with all the blue dogs like Nelson, Baccus, and Landrieu who routinely vote against their party. We certainly won't ever get a workable majority if you would rather see Democrats fight and die over silly bullshit instead of simply being the political weasels that they need to be in order to win. In fact, I wish they were much smarter weasels than they have been lately.

      Obama is NOT a Socialist, damn it! But, I'll go ahead and vote for him anyway.
