It’s Time for Democrats to Attack, Pelosi Says
"If Washington normally blends the business of government with electoral politics, this week signifies a turn toward an unalloyed electoral brawl.
"Democratic Congressional leaders have sent members home without resolving their greatest outstanding disagreement with Republicans, over the Bush tax cuts due to expire at year's end. After months on the defensive as Republicans surged in the polls, Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls it time for Democrats to attack.
"You have to understand what fighters our members are, Ms. Pelosi told a group of columnists late last week. Indeed, she ascribed the Democrats' political travails to their refusal to play patty-cake with powerful economic interests as they pursued a health care overhaul, new regulations for the financial industry and energy legislation capping carbon emissions."
