The liberal Democrats in Congress have no common sense. Absolutely none. They went out on a limb when it came to winning Iraq and let emotion drive them when a small modicum of common sense could have stopped them from betting the farm America would fail.
Right now they are in a similar predicament. They have put in place massive government spending to try and turn the economy around – which cannot stimulate the economy for months to come. That is because the government is slow, bumbling, bureaucracy clogged with processes and rules. It is not nimble like the free market. It moves like a glacier while the free market flows like a river. By putting their economic cures into the wrong basket, they have set themselves on a course where we have months of declining jobs, which will continue to drag down the economy as spending and revenues slow.
So the Dems have to find some kind of distraction to take the public’s mind off their mistake. Their current plan is a witch hunt against Bush administration people, as if the personal pain of economic strife can be replaced or numbed by some DC show trial. It is a really dumb idea, but it makes THEM feel better, so therefore they will continue to do dumb things.Â
Nearly 60% of the people don’t want a witch hunt, they don’t care about what has been done. What they do care about is their future. And the only thing that will change that is to have the Dems admit they screwed up and should have put more emphasis on tax breaks for small companies. And THAT is not going to ever happen.
