84. Why should he have not expected EVERY Democrat to jump on board
This resolution was stating the pure fucking obvious. No way in hell was he wrong. Every single one of those shitheads knows what's at stake. Yet, one Democrat finally states the truth that should be shouted from the rooftops, and he stands alone. Just like everyone on DU the past 5 years. Just like everyone who voted for Democrats the past 5 years. We shout and we rant and we beg and we plead. Then our BRAVE leaders go kiss more Bush butt.

I can only take so much. I've reached the end of my ability to make excuses for Democrats. I feel like I am married to an abusive drunk who constantly beats me. At some point, I'm going to slam him across the head with a two by four.

How the hell am I supposed to keep faith with a leadership who only cares about saving their timid necks by offering up the rest of us as sacrifices? People are dying because of their cowardice. Every time they back away from the fight, they strengthen their enemies.

We will hear all about it, how our Democratic leadership has NO IDEAS to offer, nothing but the sight of their backsides retreating like frightened rabbits.

I am fed up. And mad at you too Will for dismissing my pain.
