Why Democrats Cannot Win

Four Things Everybody Should Have Figured Out by Now

  1.  Barack Obama is a well-intentioned and decent guy, but he is an ineffective and weak leader.
  2.  The president’s weaknesses wouldn’t be so bad if he had  strong back-up in Congress. But the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid has even less backbone.
  3.  President Obama is a centrist, not a liberal or a progressive. If there were such a thing left, he could be very comfortable as a moderate Republican.
  4. He is a terrible negotiator. He always gives Republicans the best of every deal.  Sometimes he is willing to give them more than they ask for. The best we can get out of the debt negotiations will have no tax revenues, but will certainly have massive cuts hurting the poor, elderly, disabled and working families.
