The Once and Future Cave-in

In a nutshell, here's how Democrats "won" the last three major budget show-downs with Republicans, and what promises another cave-in.

1990 1995         2011
The Trigger Bush-41 invokes his "Read My Lips-No New Taxes" campaign promise.  Refuses to sign Democrat budget w/ tax increase.  Led by Speaker Gingrich, congress presents budget that cuts taxes and spending.                New Teaparty  congress moves to undo Obama's radical legislation. 
Democrat Response AFSCME assures Democrats that the union will scream bloody murder if Bush shuts down government.

The culprit. George Bush who was forced by his own advisers to cave. 
AFSCME assures Clinton that the  union will keep silent if he calls Newt's bluff and shuts-down government.

 The culprit: Newt Gingrich. Only informed citizens hate Clinton's guts.
AFSCME assures Democrats  that the  union will keep silent if they call the GOP's bluff and shuts-down government.

The culprit: "right-wing teaparty fanatics who hold the House captive.
President's popularity What Gulf War? Who cares? Newt Gingrich is the anti-Christ Zero, at home and abroad, but who cares?

Result Republican cave-in Republican cave-in Republican cave-in
When disgraced ex-President Bill Clinton told   President Obama to "call the GOP's 'bluff' in the budget stalemate—well, if you didn't know before, you knew then what to expect.  I had been hopeful that the media presence of  Fox News reporting factually, and the internet would   trump the  Democrat Media Complex.  But, oh no.   Well, that's not entirely true.  What we've seen happen is  the DMC  continue to simply ignore reality,  and report what they like, creating a bodyguard of lies that appeal to the low-information voter in this bizarre new political universe.  Truth to them is what they perceive it to be.

As we speak, Speaker Boner is plotting another cave-in that will pass muster with the teaparty faction who control the House.  We will lose. Why?  Vichy Republicans will not come to grips with the reality that they are at with another evil empire requiring the use of nuclear weaponry if necessary.
