the heart of the Democratic Party’s problems

if there is one thing that succinctly sums up the problem faced at the very heart of the Democratic Party it is this one made here:

If the current five-man majority persists in thumbing its nose at popular values, the election of a Democratic president and Congress could provide a corrective.

this is from an article by Jean Edward Smith today in the NY Times titled "Stacking the Court"

it may be an opinion piece but is exactly how the Democrats operate…
they expect their judges to do the wishes of the popular value of the time for the electorate…
however, we don't elect politicians to do whatever we as the people believe is popular at the time, we can pretty much screw that up on our own any day of the week…
we elect politicians who will possibly appoint judges to interpret the laws as they are written…
we don't expect judges to rewrite laws from the bench, that is the job of Congress and Legislative Branch of the government..
however, the Democrats have been hell-bent the last decade or so on getting judges into position where they can re-write laws and thereby circumvent the position of the Executive Branch in the checks and balances system…
a clear and blatant attack of the very foundations of our Framers intentions with the U. S. Constitution…
why all of a sudden after 200+ years, do we not need three branches of government?
could it be because the Democrats believe they are better than President Bush and therefore, know more than he does…

it boils down to the simple fact that the Democrats can't determine how to lead…
they can't lead…they follow…
they get up each morning and look at the latest opinion poll to see what they should be doing that day…
they have no ounce of ability to make decisions on their own, because if they do, they will have to face the responsibility for those actions…
taking responsibility is never something the Democrats have done…
they want to blame you the electorate when something doesn't go right, because they can always fall back on the adage, "we did what the people wanted"….
