The Democrats Blinked


I know that it is easy for me to say 

sitting on the top of a high mountain in Colorado 
protected against all the whims and wiles of congress, 
but the Democrats blinked.  

They blinked on the Defense Spending Bill 
that contained the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.  

They blinked on the Tax Bill 
that would have removed 
all the major dollar tax breaks 
for people making over $250,000 a year.  

They are close to blinking 
on the Nuclear Arms Treaty Ratification 
in the Senate.  

They blinked.  

They have not learned 
a thing 
from being in power.  

They have not 
learned the most 
very basic premise 
of being powerful.  

Never, ever blink.  

Decide what you want to do 
and then do it.  

Do not compromise.  

Do not negotiate.  

The shift of power 
in the House of Representatives 
will not occur until January.  

I think that President Obama 
and others have missed the fact 
that the Democrats 
are still in power.  

Stand your ground.  

Damn the torpedoes.  

Full speed ahead.  

You are in charge 
so act like you are in charge.  

Follow the leadership example 
of the Republicans.  

They did not back down.  

They did not give in.  

They did not blink.
