Oh dear, just because of one comment, it's time to run away

Following Thursday’s descent into the Rosengate boomlet, Slate’s Dave Weigel reported that DNC spokesperson Brad Woodhouse was walking away from the line “war on women.”
They don't seem to get it, at first the talk tough then high tail it into the long grass once the GOP fires back.

What else should we expect they have been doing this for so long now they don't even have to think.

"This time we will stand firm!" they cry

"Boo" the Republicans say.

"Run away, run away" the DNC wail.

Then the wonder why the hell we get annoyed with them.

Prosecuting war criminals....Run Away

Bush tax cuts.....Run Away

Single payer....Run Away

Stimulate the economy...Run Away

Occupy Wall St....Run Away

Ending the war in Afghanistan...Run Away

War on Women's Rights....Run Away

The Overton window gently squeals on its wheels and veers ever further to the right, I'm trying to remember the last time the DNC actually stood firm. After all they have been passing ex-Republican legislation for so long now it's hard to know where they used to stand.

How long will it be before they start bipartisan talks on women's rights, I give them a week or two.

It is no wonder we lose to the frothing at the mouth brigade.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
