"Absent a stunning turn of events, we're not going to do tax cuts before the election," the aide told TPM.
The aide said it's already a winning message without a vote since Obama and Democrats have framed the debate as the Republicans being for the rich and Democrats wanting to help the middle class. Others have made similar arguments, but several lawmakers have said they think a vote is the only way to score a political victory. The senior aide doesn't think so.
"We have a winning message now, why muddy it up with a failed vote, because, of course, Republicans are going to block everything,"
What order of hyproponic enhanced reefer are these stupid muthafuckas smoking???!!!???
Its a winning message? Oh well that must be why Democrats are doing SOOOOOOO great in polling.
Got dammit man how hard is it just to take the damn vote. FUCK IF IT FAILS! Hell in reality maybe its BETTER if it fails because then you can actually say "We wanted to do X but those assholes over there blocked it". Now what exactly can you say? That you thought it was a great idea but you decide since you couldn't pass it you acted like a pussy and never brought it up for a vote?
Yeah, that's GREAT FUCKING MESSAGING THERE DEMS!
Days like this make it really really REALLY hard to be a Democrat.
