What Would Bush Do?

What Would Bush Do?

Jon Queally

Why is it that when the GOP rules the roost they get to start illegal
foreign wars, ruin the economy, disregard the health of the planet, cut
taxes on the wealthiest of Americans, and torture people they "suspect"
of crimes, but when the Democrats have a sitting President and a
super-majority in Congress, they can't even get sensible healthcare
rammed through?

Why, when relegated to the opposition, are the Democrats so goddamn
polite?  And why, when elected to power on the winds of 'Change We Can
Believe In,' are they so happy to appear so weak? 

If I suggested it was because they were assholes, would that come back to haunt me?
