Are Democrats channeling Carter? Liberal apologists?

Desperate to explain away this nation's problems, liberal apologists haul out the old reliable from the Carter years: "America the Ungovernable." So declared Newsweek. "Is America Ungovernable?" coyly asked The New Republic. Guess the answer.
"Don't blame Mr. Obama," writes Paul Krugman of the president's failures. "Blame our political culture instead. ... And blame the filibuster, under which 41 senators can make the country ungovernable."

  • Of course, just yesterday the same Paul Krugman was warning about "extremists" trying "to eliminate the filibuster" when Democrats used it systematically to block one Bush (43) judicial nomination after another. Back then, Democrats touted it as an indispensable check on overweening majority power. Well, it still is. Indeed, the Senate with its ponderous procedures and decentralized structure is serving precisely the function the Founders intended: as a brake on the passions of the House and a caution about precipitous transformative change.

  • This is a clear example liberal media bias. Is anyone really surprised. Explains why this nations youth is growing up blaming and feeling they are owed a certain lifestyle. They read this shit and shit like it and feel they have a pass to blame others.

  • Oh boo hoo, the poor little baby lambs can't get anything done...not even with their supermajority...... So instead the liberal media attempts to put the blame on the American people. What a crock o'crap.
