Blame Game

March 21, 2006 at 1:38pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in 625 Elm Street

It’s interesting to me that the Lincoln Journal Star seems to think that our country’s budget woes are the Republican Party’s fault. Have they forgotten all of the other groups who deserve blame? I’d say the political pachyderms are about 40% at fault. The Democrats carry about 30% of the blame. And the remaining 30%? I assign that to Americans generally. The editorial hints at assigning blame to the citizenry, but instead opts to let them slide due to ignorance (or something).

That’s not to take any heat off the GOP, though. We ought to be plenty ticked off at America’s so-called “conservative” party (ha!) and their fiscal management skills (double ha!). But the Dems aren’t exactly putting up a fight, and we Americans apparently don’t give a damn. Placing the blame entirely on the shoulders of the Republican Party smells more like petty partisanship than exercising principles.

If the Libertarian Party would start showing a willingness to form some coalitions and stop nominating nuts and jackasses for office, I’d point you toward them. Instead, the LP suffers from the problem of being too principled. On the local stage that problem isn’t quite as crippling, but on the national stage, it drops the LP’s political attractiveness to near zero.

How about Mr. Republicrat himself, ol’ Ben, and his “standing with the President”?  His ads are indistinguishable from any of the Reps running… If I hear the phrase “Nebraska values” one more time, I think I’m going to heave (guess I better get a big ol’ bucket because it’s just going to get worse)... it would be nice to have some real choice in our leaders, because most of them (Rep and Dem) in office right now just plain suck…
