Is There No Fight


If you fight a battle that you “know” you will lose, well the worst that can happen, even while losing, is to extract a few concessions from the winner.

That is why this attitude disappoints me.  Again from BooMan:

The White House long ago conceded that the House of Representatives has the power to compel them to give up on stimulating the economy and focus on cutting down on the debt.

And there is nothing the Bully Pulpit can say that will wring any concessions from the right-wing-radicals?  Just by speaking in a confrontational tone, the Bully Pulpit will force at least some minor concessions.
