Democrats: The Party of Yes Men

I have no problem with progressives calling Republicans the Party of No. Frankly, I'm glad someone is willing to say no to runaway spending, wealth redistribution, bowing to foreign dignitaries, and proposing never-ending tax increases. I understand the Democratic effort to paint the minority party as a backwards bunch of obstructionists, although I think the polls show it's not working.

However, if we are going to play this game, then Democrats must be the Party of Yes Men. Clearly, they don't know how to say no to Obama. Ever. As if they're afraid they'll be labeled racists by their progressive friends in the mainstream media. And I don't have to tell you that a Party of Yes Men is a way more dangerous thing than a party that knows when to say no.

  1. YES, I agree with you. I really don't think that Obama is hardly even running the show. He's just a pawn, and he's definitely no leader. Of course we all know that. I'm not sure if it's so much the 'Yes' as it is 'the machine'. It's like an aerobics class. If you're outside the class, you can do whatever you want within limits, but once in you're in class, you have to do what the instructor says, if you don't, you may get thrown out, or looked at like you don't belong. The aerobics class is 'the machine'. Once you're in the 'Washington Machine', you're just stuck. we need to dismantle the machine.
    Salute!

  2. I stumbled upon this site by accident. It seems to be a rehash of the Sean Hannity, Rush Oxycotten Limbaugh talking points from the right. Hate on Obama and some people will cheer you on, well good for you, but these people are extremists who wish our country and our president harm. You should be more careful when you speak out or it could lead to violence by the radical wingnuts your side panders to. Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are doing enough damage, don't you think? Why must you add your voice to their slimey fear mongering?
