Local Lefty Bashing Republicans – Again!

Russ Steele

Never finding a good thing to say about Republican our local lefty blogger has latched on to an Op-Ed by Thomas E. Mann and Norman J. Ornstein, in the Washington Post to promote their book new It’s Even Worse Than It Looks.  It is all Republicans Fault!

Karl at writing at Hot Air nails it!  Thomas E. Mann and Norman J. Ornstein are ignoring the biggest problem of all created by the Democrats –Run Away Spending

Today’s post is much shorter than yesterday’s, because if you reread Ornstein and Mann, you will find none of this real-world context in their op-ed. In order for them to condemn Republicans as “the problem,” they ignore the country’s biggest problems, save for a passing reference to our exploding public debt as, er, “fiscal pressures.” They ignore the Democrats’ gross irresponsibility and dereliction in meeting the basic duties of governance, similarly burying their heads in the sand. They ignore that the Democrats’ preferred approach to the debt — when forced to consider it — has tended to fail worldwide. They denounce the GOP as ideologically extreme, public opinion data to the contrary. No wonder they demand the media switch entirely to a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party. Their reality-based community is a Potemkin village.

Here in California we have a similar problem, uncontrolled spending. The Democrats created a fake budget and then express amazement when the tax revenues do not roll into fill their budget fantasy.  California’s economy is in the tank. Democrats are totally in charge, and California’s economic failure is the Republican fault?  Only in a Democratic Potemkin village.

    We already live in different universes cognitively, all that remains is to make the separation economic and political. This is a politically incorrect observation.

  2. i held my nose and went over there. Yikes that editor is such a extremist liberal! His posters seem to be frothing at the mouth as well. When I see the behavior they are expressing, you know we are effective. Those nuts are scared to death of the truth!
