47. Holding accountable is not what dems do..

This is my BIGGEST gripe..

We have a habit of easing off at just the worst time..

Had we pressed hard on Iran Contra we would never have had a GHWB presidency or a GW presidency, but we always have had the notion that "moving forward" / "letting bygones be bygones" was the way to go.

Republicans are a lawless bunch and they NEVER let up..Over the last 51 years, they have "governed" 27 years.. and have, on the whole, forced THEIR agenda even when we had the white house.

Dems are usually looking for consensus even when we do have congressional control and the WH.. Republicans do not care if they don't have complete control.. They feel as if the default position is always theirs, and they do whatever they need to do to get their way.

What I wish for most, is for our leadership to STFU and just DO things.. We have a propensity to go on tv with "we're gonnas". Meet privately decide what you need to do..they DO IT.. Tell us about it AFTER you have done it.
Republicans never telegraph their intentions. we always do.
