Unicorns, Rainbows and Scapegoats

Posted on | September 24, 2010 | 9 Comments

Christina Bellantoni’s headline sums it up:

Axelrod To TPM: It’s The GOP’s Fault
Dems Punted On Tax Cuts Vote

Let’s face it:  When it comes to externalizing blame for their own failures, even Susie Madrak can’t top Axelrod.

    Wow. She swallowed Axelrod’s line without gagging once. Susie ought to focus her anger on Christina; it would be more productive.

    Well, he’s right in a way. If the Republicans hadn’t had the backbone to insist on a vote on ALL the cuts being extended, the Democrats would have rushed through the Obama-approved soak-the-rich plan which would fail to reap most of the benefits of tax cuts: increased savings and investment.

    But they still control the Congress, and if they wanted an up-or-down vote on their plan, they could have scheduled it. It was their own candidates who balked.

    Don’t be so hard on them for failing to take responsibility. It’s a genetic trait of leftists – they can only blame others for their failings, and they have so many failings they are pretty much a constant, shrill stream of blame-throwing.

    It wasn’t the GOP’s fault, it’s that racist teabagging scrap of paper called the “Constitution”.

    If it didn’t have that right-wing nutjob requirement for periodic elections, then the landed nobility, umm, I mean the Democrat Senators and Representatives wouldn’t have to placate the peasants, I mean their constituents.
