Bearing the threat

September 2007
Hill;9/4/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 99, p17
The author comments on the move by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who seem incompetent and irresponsible as its grand old party (GOP) predecessors. According to the author, Democratic leaders seem are kept on denying even the possibility that things might improve because those on whom they rely for support want us to lose. Moreover, the only thing that keeps the Congress from forcing a surrender is the fact that the place is dysfunction.
