One of the most disheartening moments I've ever had as a democrat was when Obama extended the Bush tax cuts for a couple more years. That's taking ownership.
I didn't care whether he thought it might not be a good idea at that moment in political time. He campaigned on that concept in 2008... and when they held ALL the cards... they (dems) couldn't even bring themselves to do NOTHING... and let those cuts expire (like the republicans originally designed them to because they had no choice in the way they rigged the Congress)... and they (dems) threw their political advantage in the trash.
All I want... and I would say all a LOT of folks want... is just a start.... back up this promise for a change. Make a threat to the right wing (stand your damn ground) and back it up. In this case all you have to do is NOTHING!
You'll be AMAZED how much the electorate will appreciate this.
