A Short History of Failure

You know that the Democratic Congress has had a bad year when even the New York Times and the LA Times are calling the past year a failure.

Note the tone of astonishment in this NY Times piece:

. . .first and foremost, the war in Iraq. Time and again, even when a few of their number defected, they refused to provide the votes needed to challenge the president’s handling of the war.

That's right. It's called principle. The overwhelming majority of Republicans refused to cave in to pressure from the Democrats and the press to declare defeat in a war that -- as General Petraeus has demonstrated -- is winnable.
