Dems "Failing?"

-- by Dave Johnson

The Republicans have a strategy of using the filibuster to block everything the Democrats try to do, and then telling the public that the Democrats are letting them down. As a result of this strategy there have never in history been as many filibusters. Is this news? Apparently not.

So what IS the news from this? AP: Democrats failing to pass anti-war bill, ABCDemocrats failing to pass anti-war bill, Google News shows this echoed this morning at 1,422 outlets.

Some days it seems like the major media is complicit in Republican political strategies.
