Why are Democrats so ‘squishy’?

With the proven success of the right’s noise machine over the past forty years, one has to ask why the Democratic Party doesn’t use the same tactics to get desirable measures passed thru Congress.

Reading comments this morning at Ed’s Place, I came upon the following

The Democrats fail to go for the jugular when they clearly have the superior argument, as opposed to the GOP which nearly always does and will use what effective rhetorical fallacy is effective on matters when they don’t but still have a fierce desire to prevail. They appear fearful of offending independents and moderates – Michael Heath

Supporting, if not ‘proving’, the expressed sentiment would be the evident failures of leadership in passing health-care reform, on climate legislation and the elimination of the military’s Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell rules.
