    Another lesson for Democratic elected officials:

    GOP leaders don't need a mandate.  On the slimmest margins of victory, they seize control and cram their agenda down the throats of Dem legislators and the public in general.

    They don't care if anyone likes it or if anyone criticizes them. They take control and enact their agenda. Fast.  Hint: its usually already planned and written before they win the election.

    Instead of pre-compromising, squirming, equivocating and spinning, Democrats need to follow their example.  Win, take charge, enact agenda. Fast. Preferably in the first 3 months.

    Got it?

    •  Exactly. (3+ / 0-)

      I keep thinking Obama should have hit Congress with a public option a month after the inauguration.

      British Petroleum: I think that means it's foreign oil.

    •  Ms. Pinson and Howard Dean need to be put (0+ / 0-)

      in the top Democratic leadership positions ASAP! (speaking literally or figuratively?)
      Because we don't have any 'leaders' in the leadership slots now.

      Have a 'Plan' and execute, damnit, D's.
