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?
