Reality reversed

On Tuesday, I spent an hour listening to President Obama berate the Republicans again. I noticed a trend.

With every mention of Republican intransigence, if you merely switched “Democrat” for “Republican,” you would find that all the claims of the president about the Republicans applied to the Democrats.

The party holding America hostage is Obama's own. Republicans did not shut down the monuments — Democrats did. Republicans are not holding up veterans' payments — Democrats are.

They are using the age-old strategy of stressing cuts to those programs that the public values most. This causes the public to yield to the pols' moves.
