Flag and Gavel

To the President on the Occasion of His Caving on Tax Cuts for the Rich

Dear Mr. President:

I am so disappointed at the lack of passion and commitment to what you campaigned for. Who would have thought that a black Chicago politician had the political skills of a doormat?

Mr. President, you are being a wuss.

Unfortunately your poor negotiating skills will hurt the country, grow our debt, and lead the right-wing to expect more craven behavior in the future.

IF the deal had been for a one-year extension of the tax rates in exchange for unemployment benefits, a vote on START and DADT, then you could claim compromise.  What you are settling for is the right to bow and scrape at Boehner's feet.

Congratulations.
