Why do we even bother when we have jokers like this representing us.
House Democrats have decided to quit emphasizing that they will not negotiate changes to Social Security until President Bush drops his idea for private accounts. The switch in strategy comes after Democrats learned from focus groups that people frown on the lawmakers for being obstinate.
“People feel like it doesn’t show a good-faith effort,” said a top House aide, who like several others spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the internal data. “It makes us seem like we’re `typical politicians.'”
The shift in tactics comes with Democrats and Republicans unsure what will happen after the end next month of a campaign-style, 60-day travel blitz by the president and administration officials who are promoting his plan.
If they were not so pathetic this would be funny. This is the jist of the entire problem with the Democratic leadership… the entire base is behind them and unified … but these asshole rather listen to a fucking focus group…(ie Al From, LIEberman, Clinton and Kerry) and throw in the towel when were were fucking winning… unfucking believable.
