When the Republicans win the House of Representatives, it represents a total mandate to do whatever they want, without a thought to what anyone else thinks, but when the Democrats win the House, the Senate and the White House, it means absolutely nothing.
The Republicans are allowed to have a multibillion dollar foreign owned cable "news" channel devoted to 24 hour a day lying propaganda on their behalf, but if a liberal commentator gives a political contribution to a Democrat, he has to be banished from TV forever.
Republican leaders can, one after another, announce that they intend to pursue their goals ruthlessly without a concern for Democratic ideas and positions; in the face of which, the appropriate response from our "liberal" press is to write several hundred opinion pieces savaging the Democrats for not doing enough to be bipartisan.
If someone saves you from a depression, the right thing to do is to throw him out and replace him with leaders that have been bought lock stock and barrel by the people who almost caused the depression.
And finally, if you are president and are having a hard time, the appropriate response is to start a war of aggression against some third world country halfway around the world, which can't possibly strike back at us. This proves that we are manly, even when it results in nothing but disaster. Solving problems by addressing them directly and taking meaningful action is nothing but a sign of limp-wristed girly weakness, even if it works.
Well, there you go. That's what I've learned. How about you?
