Republicans are Wimps

I've said it before, but what the heck...the political climate is right to say it again:

For 8 years of President George W. Bush, the Democrats fought the administration tooth and nail. They tried to make everything that Bush did fail. Everything. And when Republicans were in the majority, they were pushovers for the Democrats. As the saying goes, it's not the size of the dog, but the size of the fight in the dog that counts. The minority Democrats, the smaller dog, had much larger fight than the majority Republicans.

Then the Democrats won congress. And then the presidency. And now if a prominent Republican, like Rush Limbaugh, comes out and just says that he wants Obama to fail - essentially saying that he wants the Republicans to stand up to Obama and counter his moves the way that the Democrats did for the 8 years of George W. Bush's presidency, the Democrats fight back and win again; in response to that statement the Democrats have run roughshod over the Republicans and are still doing it (with the media's help). The wimpy Republicans haven't even entered the fight and they're already being bullied by the Democrats.

Ever see Gran Torino? There's that scene where the neighbor chick is out with some guy walking the streets, and some street toughs start harassing the guy and the chick. The guy keeps calling them "bro", trying to make nice. That's essentially what the Republican party has been for at least the last eight years, and especially is as the party is run by Michael Steele. And the street toughs are essentially the Democratic party. I suppose that makes Rush Limbaugh essentially Clint Eastwood's character, telling Steele and those like him, "They don't want to be your 'bro', and I don't blame them." (--Clint Eastwood's character in Gran Torino.)

I don't blame them either. Why on Earth would the fighting Democrats want to befriend wet blankets like today's Republicans?
