“We will be called everything from cut-and-run quitters to Defeatocrats... while I know all of this, I'm still disappointed.”— Sen. Barack Obama
responding to criticisms of the Democrats
grimmlok retorts: "um, you'll be called that, Mr. Obama, because your party is a bunch of spineless retards that refuses to stand for anything.
They also, over the last 5 years, have had every goddamned golden chunk of ammunition to use against Bush served to them on a silver platter. Did they use any of those opportunities? No.
You sat there. You kept your faces shut. You did nothing. You were too afraid of 'offending' people, or making people 'angry'. By doing that, you have no position on anything, you have NO message, you have NO unity and you have NO alternative.
Even more odiously, your party has ENABLED the Bush admin and the republicans to pass some of the most hideous legislation in the history of your country. There were a number of strategies you could have employed but in the end 3/4 of your people simply voted with Bush and the last 1/4 simply sat back and watched.
So you'll pardon me if I don't feel particularely sympathetic to your fucking *hurt* feelings Mr. Obama. Grow up. Grow a pair. Act like an opposition party.
.. and take a fucking stand for something you pack of craven idiots."
