Stupid Is As Stupid Does, Obama Style, Cont.

UPDATE: "After the pummeling in the midterm elections, has President Obama suffered a moral collapse?" Read The New York Times, Freezing Out Hope.

And "[w]hat is the Democratic Party's bottom line? Who knows?" Read the Washington Post, Democrats lost in the wilderness.

"At risk of overgeneralizing, the problem isn't that Dems aren't capable of winning an argument. It's that they don't think they're capable of winning a protracted political standoff, even on an issue where the public is on their side, once Republicans start going on the attack. They seem to set their goal early on at salvaging a compromise, rather than going for the win. As a result, they tend to telegraph weakness at the outset, sending a clear message that they'll essentially give Republicans what they want as long as they can figure out a way to call it a compromise. " Read the Washington Post, Dems too quick to internalize that losing feeling.
