To the last, we will grapple with thee

Here’s a key quote that explains a lot of our current political situation (via)

Democratic leaders are loath to acknowledge they’ve backed off, but lawmakers from both sides of the aisle, as well as congressional aides, say Democrats are trying to find a way to provide continued troop funding while searching for some compromises that show they’re still intent on challenging the president on the war.

Let me condense that for clarity —

Democratic leaders … are trying … to show they’re still intent on challenging the president on the war

Not trying to, say, win the war, or govern well, or implement policies that would improve our nation. No. None of that. The goal, instead, is to “challenge the President”. It’s such an amazing blend of irresponsibility, bitterness, and spite to condense in to such a short sentence. But that’s the kind of people who run the Democratic Party these days.
