"These guys will roll over, they're afraid of being called the party of No. Believe me, I know them. They'll be easy."
That was Rahm Emanuel just before Republicans voted 100% NO on the PorkFat(tm) Bill.
You know, it's OK to be the Party Of No sometimes. Just depends on the question.
I think Rahm and Barry's biggest problem is that they lived too long in a political climate where they had no opposition and no one said "No" to them occasionally. I hope they find it a chastening experience.
