I have been a lifelong liberal democrat and it's hard to describe the tremendous disappointment I feel about the dems in congress. There has been plenty of disappointment for the last few years but this one is the worst, they have given in to Bush completely when they should be fighting him every step of the way. Nancy Pelosi praises the new "compromise" while saying at the same time that she will not vote for it. While I hate the Republicans and everything they have done to destroy this country at least they aren't timid. Did they hesitate to impeach Clinton when they had far less reason and far less support from the public than an impeachment of Bush would have? No, and they curbed Clinton's ability to do anything pretty effectively during that time. But the dems not only don't impeach a man who is clearly the most law breaking president in American history but they have rolled over and played dead over the Iraq war. They play politics while American soldiers continue to die because of Bush's lies. I love this picture of Reid raising his hands in surrender because that's exactly what he's done. He's a joke, how the hell did he get to be leader in the Senate?
At least Keith Olbermann didn't disappoint. He gave one of his Special Comments that really socked it to the dems, and to Bush who is the villian of the piece.

For the president, and the majority leaders and candidates and rank-and-file Congressmen and Senators of either party—there is only blame for this shameful, and bi-partisan, betrayal"
