Democrats, Who Spent Months Arguing for "Compromise," Now Insist Obama "Throw Down The Gauntlet"

Does anyone think that Hoffa's declaration of war, and the Congressional Black Caucuses' talk of lynchings, is entirely coincidental and organic?

While pundits like Jonathan Alter, who until recently was bemoaning the lack of a spirit of compromise in government, now insists that Obama embrace his inner demagogue?

It's the way he throws down his gauntlet," columnist Jonathan Alter said about President Obama's upcoming jobs plan on MSNBC. "Chris, he's got to say 'my party and I are for rebuilding America, if you don't agree you're against rebuilding America. You are against jobs.' He needs it to be jobs first. You're either for more jobs or you're not. Jobs immediately, you know."

Is this worth a post? I don't know. It's more of the same, isn't it? While they mau-mau Republicans to pray at the altar of compromise, they demand Obama fight, fight, fight.

Why, it's almost as if they are entirely lacking in principle or intellectual integrity and are just freelance political strategists in service of the DNC and Organizing for America, eh?

The point is so obvious (and so obviously true) it's a waste of time to even spend pixels on it.

But yes, the devotees of compromise are now promoting the slogan "If you're not with me, you're with the economic terrorists."
