Runner Up Comment of the Day

The nation demands the impossible: quick, painless solutions to long-term, structural problems. While they’re running for office, politicians of both parties encourage this kind of magical thinking.

That’s a lie right there. Only the dems do this. They promise that they can cut taxes, increase spending, reduce the deficit and give you free healthcare.

Republicans generally don’t promise these things. I love how liberals will talk about the “hard choices” of “reforming an unsustainable system of entitlements” and blaming the dumb electorate on not wanting to do so – when it is the dems who promise to “protect” those entitlement programs from the big-bad republicans every election.

Where’s Eugene then? When does he side with republicans who consistently talk about reforming SS, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare and the like? He is supporting the dems who are promising easy answers to hard problems.

Talk about projection and intellectual dishonesty.
