Aren't you happy that the Democratic Party is not like the Republican Party...?

...in that they simply get in lockstep and march behind their Party? Do you think we would be a better Party if we did that?

1. The Republicans fear their base

The Democrats loathe theirs.

5. I think this is a dangerous game they are playing, Sir...

People are not pawns to be moved and manipulated at will.

4. They look like Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee to me...most of the time.

Not on every issue; Just on the financial ones.

6. At the moment I hope they are like that

I want to see if the Republican house can pass their bill without the Democratic votes. I'd like to see every Dem in the house back the presidents position and say no to Boehner's plan B. If the Republicans want this bill they better be willing to get their whole majority to vote for it because the word on the street is they don't have enough of their own votes.
