What a riot.
Dionne makes excuse after excuse after excuse as to why the Democrats have failed to get anything done this year.
Liberal Dionne is boo-hooing about how terribly unfair it is that Democrats cannot get anything accomplished.
Of course, every single one of these excuses, Republicans are to blame for the failure of the Democrats
Real Clear Politics-
In an ideal world, Democrats would pass a lot of legislation that Bush would either have to sign or veto. The president would have to take responsibility for his choices. The House has passed many bills, but the Republican minority has enormous power in the Senate to keep the legislation from ever getting to the president's desk. This creates the impression that action is being stalled through some vague and nefarious congressional "process."
Not only can a minority block action in the Senate, but the Democrats' nominal one-vote majority is frequently not a majority at all. A few maverick Democrats often defect, and the party runs short-handed when Sens. Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Chris Dodd and Barack Obama are off running for president.Perhaps some of these liberal editorialist are beginning to see what the rest of America has seen for months. It is a failure in leadership. Democrats have failed to prove they can lead America in a positive direction.
