Sick of Obstructionist, Timid Centrists

Could our "liberal" political leaders finally STAND FOR SOMETHING?  With Democrats like these, who needs Republicans???  

When the country is desperate for change, isn't it time for leaders who will... er... LEAD US there?  From the War in Iraq to universal health care to SCHIP to immigrant rights --- why can't we have leaders who believe in something and help persuade the nation, rather than pandering.  

Check out this great cartoon about the spineless pessimists and pragmatists standing in the way of a better future.

Someone once told me, "We have to meet people where they're at --- but we don't have to leave them there." Same with the country.

Rome was not built in a day.  We just came to power to 11 months ago.  Kind of hard to build the next great great society in 11 months especially with obstructionists Republicans in the Senate.

If we shore up our majorities next year and take back the White House we will be in great shape.  Pelosi's legislation will start getting signed into law by a Democratic President.

I think if we can extend our majority even only slightly and win the White House we will see major changes on foreign policy and defense, on health care and the environment, and on tax policy.

I agree with this 110%.  We spent 12 years fighting to retake Congress, and once we finally get it, it takes less than a year for us to give up on the whole thing.  Lame.

I also think Republicans will love your arguement, and I think that as the election approaches we will see Republican trolls start to make similar pitches ... throw all the Democrat bums out, whats the difference between them and Republicans anyway .... we may as well sit home and let Republicans back in charge.
