This week we saw the conversion to digital television delayed for good reasons and the job creation and economic stimulus bill delayed because Harry Reid is trying to reach out to Republicans at a time when all they want to do is whine about the "process" and strip the bill of any teeth it might have. The American people have suffered through eight years of their failed policies. It's time for them to sit down and let the grownups lead.
Why would the Republicans continue to push their failed policies? I don't know, but these are people who cower under the threat of Rush Limbaugh's disapproval and who call a Z-list celeb, Joe the Plumber, in to advise them on policy.
