Oh, Democrats, Democrats, Democrats. Your party's symbol's an ass - a word that was on John Boehner's lips this week, and maybe some other people's too.
Here's how it went down: First House Republicans proposed $32 billion in cuts. The President offered $6.5 billion. The House passed a bill cutting $60billion. Then the Tea Party demanded $100 billion. Now we're told that everybody has agreed to a "compromise" number: $33 billion.
That's just one billion more than the Republicans in Congress originally demanded. Way to negotiate, Democrats!
That's why we need an independent movement that will fight for the public's best interests.
Put up your hands and fight like a gentleman, sir!
In the bloodbath that is modern American politics, the courtly Dems still want to fight by Marquis of Queensbury rules. In the budget battle, they've once again put up their dukes for a polite "bout of fisticuffs" while their opponents pummel them with knives, clubs, brass knuckles, numchucks, AK-47's, and tactical nuclear weapons.
The imagery's just a figure of speech, of course.
Help us spread the word about these important stories...
