Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
This is less a diary than me absolutely stumped over something I've been noticing for the last few days, but here goes.
For at least the last few days, I've noticed that Boehner has been doing daily (or at least, near daily) press conferences/briefings, carried live on all the cable news channels, during which he and the Republicans keep driving their narrative in the media. Where the hell are the Democrats? I don't see Pelosi or Reid or Obama or Carney, or anyone else, for that matter out there getting nearly as much air time. Somebody get the Democrats out there and PUSH BACK!
Someone get the Democratic leadership to go out there, and call the Republicans out on their utter lack of detail in their "plan." Call them out on being utterly out of touch with the American people, who back Obama's plan. Call them out on their idea of "negotiation" being "Obama does all the work". Call them out on not having any new ideas since the latter half of the previous century. Why are we letting them get all the free air time? Where the hell are the Democrats?
