  •  The Republicans will do whatever they can (2+ / 0-)

    to get their way.  Even when they know they cannot ultimately succeed, they will do what they can.  Democrats, on the other hand, would not do whatever they can if they thought they would be unsuccessful because they don't want to be seen as failing.  The joke on the Democrats is, of course, that Republicans are seen as standing on their principles while the Democrats are seen as not having principles or being too gutless to take a stand on them.  And people wonder why the Republicans are always seen as stronger and why they get respect from voters many of whom just want surety.

    •  The Dem's want to help people. (0+ / 0-)

      It's not that they care about being seen as failing.  Dem's figured getting most of what will be good for MC and the economy is worth compromising for.  That's making a stand for the MC and America.  If voters don't want to see that then it's their fault we have a poor nation.  Literally.
