Can We Get Some Balls Here, Please?
We cats have refrained from commenting on the nonsense that's been going on in Washington lately, because we were thinking (hoping) that the President was playing rope-a-dope with Congressional Republicans and would eventually turn around and skewer them with a deft parry and thrust.
Looks like we were wrong. The White House is on the verge on cowering once again, this time on tax cuts for the wealthy. Now we know why we supported Senator Clinton in the primaries.
You know, we cats understand the complexities of governing. As we've said before, it's complicated and difficult. So we were never as impatient as our fellow liberals these last two years — even though the Republicans have obstructed, denied, and basically not given a rat's ass about helping the country since Obama became President.
But this tax-cut thing? If this happens, it'll be beyond hacking a hairball. It literally will make us ill. We cannot understand how the Obama team — an awe-inspiring steamroller in 2008 — has become such a bunch of Washington wimps today.
Guys, you need a little testosterone. Here's an unlikely source: "Dems May Keep Senate in Session Over Christmas for DADT Repeal." Way to go, Senator Reid. Now, that would be manning up.
