In 2006, liberals and Democrats made a plea to the American public to stop the Iraq war if elected into the Congress despite the fact they had very little power to do so. Ultimately, they were unable to do so until Barack Obama assumed office in 2009. Liberals and Democrats also made a plea to the American public to pass meaningful healthcare reform but even with a 60-member filibuster-proof majority, they were unable to place any form of a healthcare bill on Obama's desk. In fact, the election of one person derailed their whole agenda.
Liberals and Democrats often find themselves accused by the right wing as being in control of the media. However, liberalism is not catching on and is viewed a negative word. You always hear, "too liberal" but never "too conservative." You will also notice that no President with the possible exception of Lyndon B. Johnson or John F. Kennedy have been elected on liberal principals. As of recent elections, the only way Democrats win the Presidency is when the Republican screws up. Liberal station Air America fell flat from day one but conservative talk radio and television abounds and thrives. If liberals are so powerful, why do they fail to achieve any major objectives?
It all begs the question: Are liberals and Democrats spineless, weak and useless?
