Democrats are failures

Clearly, what Dean should do is hold policy roundtables twice a week with David Broder. He knows what is wrong with us. Broder tells it like it is.
    Because Republicans control the congressional agenda, the Democratic leaders cannot bring forward their own initiatives with any hope of success. The best they can do is block GOP efforts or criticize their policies. But that strategy simply strengthens Republican accusations of negativism. The tactic of not offering an alternative on a subject as vital as Social Security -- which makes sense in the legislative context -- does nothing to enhance the Democrats' reputation with the public.
To recap:
-Democrats can't bring forward their own ideas because they are in the minority but it doesn't matter because Broder knows that even if they were in the majority they would have no ideas.
-Blocking Social Security privatization, arguably the Democrats biggest political success in 5 1/2 years, actually does nothing to "enhance" the image of the party.

Everyone got that? We're losers...WE ARE LOSERS...L-O-S-E-R-S

Now, if only we can get all Democrats to understand that WE ARE ALL LOSERS then we can start winning elections.
