Nancy Pelosi is among the first Democrats in a leadership position to actually call the Republicans out on what their actual goal in deficit reduction is.
I think that a vital but previously unmentioned component of the partisan debate is that of bias in the politicians. The openly stated goals of the Republicans is to "shrink government until it can be drowned in a bathtub". It always has astounded me that the Republicans can simultaneously attempt to get elected and at the same time despise the "Washington crowd". What with the current recklessness of the GOP, the Democratic leaders have FINALLY caught on that the anti-government bias of the right wing might be a good thing to point out.
It only took 40 years for the Democrats to recognize the hypocracy in anti-government extremists attempting to get elected to the government, but better late than never.
DISCLAIMER: I do not attempt to be polite or partisan in my articles, merely truthful. If you are a partisan and believe that the letter after the name of a politician is more important then their policies, I suggest that you stop reading and leave this site immediately--there is nothing here for you.
Modern American politics are corrupt, hyper-partisan, and gridlocked, yet the mainstream media has failed to cover this as anything but politics as usual. This blog allows me to post my views, analysis and criticisms which are too confrontational for posting in mainstream outlets.
