The Democrats are talking tough again on Iraq funding, time-lines, and forcing the GOP to actually follow through on their filibuster bluster. Personally, I'm staying out of this one. I will be keeping my hopes and desires for a real confrontation with the president, and his mindless GOP minions, locked deep down inside. I've seen this play before, over, and over again. The Democrats can play the role of unfaithful spouse, promising that this time will be different, but I'm just not buying it. The Mukasey capitulation was my last straw and the last time I will cheer on a Congress that fights for their own survival before they will fight for the people.
My last straw came back in August when they passed the lamebrained stopgap FISA bill. I'm just sick and tired of the betrayal and lame excuses. I need to see some concrete results before I give my heart back to them.
