They huff, and they puff, and they threaten to blow Obama’s house down.
Not the right-wingers, the left-wing “base” of the Democratic Party.
Dick Durbin is threatening that a bloc of Democrats may “walk out” on Obama by voting against his tax deal. Mary Landrieu calls the deal “almost morally corrupt.” The left-blogosphere is alive with the sound of boo-sic.
Not going to happen.
The Democrats — particularly the left-wing “base” — never will walk out on Obama.
Like the mime in the box, deep down they believe that they have no place to go.
