#1 EJ pretty reliably represents the conventional wisdom of the mainstream left.

The fact that what he says is basically drivel tells us the problems of the mainstream left are, in their own way, as severe as those of the GOP.

#2 [shakes head] I suppose reality has to be somewhere in between E.J. and the right-wing, whatever "reality" is...

#3 The Left has demonstrated time and again, the heart felt desire for a one party system whether its Dear Leader or a 'King'. I don't recall the Left was too cooperating when Nixon won a second term. A lot of these writers weren't born yet, so its all prehistoric for them, as history is only what they can recall in their life's experience.

#4 The 'invest in infrastructure' would be a well received message had the previous several trillion borrowed dollars gone to actual infrastructure projects.

The liberals increase spending when times are good, bad, near bankruptcy... There is never a time to cut spending; after all the real America is the GIVERnment.

#5 I have come to believe that Dionne knows he is full of crap but he knows if enough of his friends say the same thing it becomes conventional wisdom and may actually become the truth when McCain and company start to beleave it. That is what happened with a lot of the polling in the last election. lie, lie, lie with polls until eventually turnout starts to look the way you want (and any voter fraud numbers start to look like the predictions and thus don't stand out).

#6 The bit that is really beginning to bore me is the "shameful infrastructure" talking point. True in Baltimore or Detroit, but outside the blue cities, ours is still more than adequate. Especially when one considers the over-built, over-engineered projects one sees in Europe and Eastasia. Those are jobs programs, not infrastructure.

#7 Eliminate the biggest tax increase in history. Eliminate Obamacare.

Eliminate the slave trade. If you have to pay money to someone whether you buy or not buy, you are now a slave.

#8 "The 'invest in infrastructure' would be a well received message had the previous several trillion borrowed dollars gone to actual infrastructure projects."

The money wouldn't go to actual infrastructure projects this time either, airandee.

Generally speaking, construction jobs are done by men - can't spend that money on all those jobs for burley men, y'know. >:-(

#9 If Paul Ryan proposed a budget that reduced federal spending by $1.00, it wouldn't pass and he would be accused (again) of taking money out of the mouths of starving children. (The $650 million pissed away on a non-functioning website somehow doesn't come out of the mouths of starving children.)
