I too was very disheartened by the Democrat's one weak moment. By withdrawing the time line language from the funding bill, they really blew it. However, I was unaware we, the Democrats, had given our leaders a one time get it right mandate
This is a very complex political time. The Democrats are in the position to take over the now one sided political landscape. The last thing I would want to do is turn my support into talking points of doom.
I recall, in doing complex math problems, you have to concentrate on the step by step intricate requirement to get the problem right. I was allowed to miss one question and still get an "A" on the test.
In a non perfect world, the more we allow ourselves to be human beings, complete with making "some" mistakes, the less stress it takes to do what we have been entrusted to do. The way I see it no one will even take the job on if they only have one chance to get it right.
We must also follow the criticism. I found myself arguing this very issue with a Republican who did not state that very fact up front.
My last point is this: We cannot miss the opportunity to pick are leaders up after they have crashed and burned in a political battle. As supporters, we must find out what our rolls should be and play them as well as we give criticism.
