  •  When Dems Controlled The WH and Congress (11+ / 0-)

    from 2009-11, the public actually expected them to do some good. When Dems don't control, there's no pressure and they can blame the GOP for stopping progressive legislation.

    •  I swear, I sometimes think Dems (0+ / 0-)

      are happier being in the minority!
      And after 20134 they may well be.
      I have tried to figure out Obama's reasoning with those parts of the budget until my head is ready to explode.
      Fine, maybe he believes in it, but he's going to hurt other Dems in 2014, imo.
      Even if this buget goes nowhere, he made a grievous error,
      and seems like a terrible negotiator.
      The GOP wil run with this.
