41. Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.
This is the same kind of analysis and excuse making that has turned the public off. It's the tired old "conventional wisdom" that advisors have been feeding candidates for a generation.

People can accurately say, "What's the difference?" whenever anyone tries to recruit them to participate in the political process.

An election year is when candidates must stand by their principles MORE, not less. The perception of Democrats is not only that they're soft on terror and defense, but that they STAND FOR NOTHING!! When Democrats lie down and roll over for Bush (especially when he's at his worst), it reinforces what Republicans say about them. These enablers make it harder for all Democrats.

Prescription drug bill
Bankruptcy reform
Confirmation of Rice, Gonzales, Roberts, etc.

These are all TERRIBLE things that DEMOCRATS -- fucking DEMOCRATS! helped Bush accomplish.

Half of them aren't up for re-election anyway, for Pete's sake!!!

"Sometimes you have to suck it up and do things you don't want to do in order to survive."

I don't give a shit if Bush's lap dogs survive or not. I want the country to survive and the only way that can happen is if there is genuine OPPOSITION to Bush's agenda from our side of the aisle. The opposition needs to be strong and united.
