I take back pretty much everything I said in my previous post
the Democratic leadership is still just as spineless, out of touch, and in the thrall of criminally incompetent political consultants.
Not only does the WH
get the money it wants, the GOP leadership gets to boast, again
, about how the Democrats tried to surrender, tried to "cut and run" but the brave, noble and true men of the Republican party refused to give up and ultimately emerged victorious.
And adding $20 billion onto a bill that the White House doesn't want, no matter what it's for, just plays into the GOP talking point about tax-and-spend Democrats.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
