Dummocrats, part deux

A couple of days ago I wrote a post slamming the Democratic establishment. Today OHDave points us to a few more Ohio bloggers fed up with the nonsense.

Almost 2 years ago I linked to an article by Gary Hart in which he basically expressed the same sentiments. An excerpt:

History will deal with George W. Bush and the neoconservatives who misled a mighty nation into a flawed war... But what will history say about an opposition party that stands silent while all this goes on? My generation of Democrats jumped on the hot stove of Vietnam and now, with its members in positions of responsibility, it is afraid of jumping on any political stove.

The real defeatists today are not those protesting the war. The real defeatists are those in power and their silent supporters in the opposition party who are reduced to repeating "Stay the course" even when the course, whatever it now is, is light years away from the one originally undertaken.

Again, that was almost 2 years ago. Will we be saying the same thing about the same Party in another 2 years?
