About a year ago, Bill Moyers appeared on Bill Maher's show. Discussing health care reform, the usually imperturbable Moyers, had this to say about the Democrats, "too many Democrats have had their spines surgically removed."
He continued, "The problem is the Democratic Party. This is a party that has told its progressives — who are the most outspoken champions of health care reform — to sit down and shut up."
He had observations for President Obama as well, and the Democratic party as a whole needs to pay attention as it wimps - I mean limps - toward the November Midterms.

to compromise on anything at any time,
and you would achieve nothing."
So, Dems . . . . . . . .
Friends don't let friends give speeches . . .
