From Daily Kos newsletter…

Democrats in Congress are not known for their shrewd negotiating ability. We saw this when their attempt to repeal the Bush tax cuts for millionaires resulted in… those tax cuts being extended. We saw it when the stimulus, the health insurance bill, and any number of pieces of legislation were much weaker than they should have been.

Stop thinking that they got anything but what they wanted. Stop assuming that they really want anything different than the Republicans.

Seriously, we spend so much effort creating excuses when the simplest answer is that they, including Obama, are not on our side.
