The bottom line is that every time a Democrat opens his/her mouth about the economic situation, they remain in full campaign mode even after the election was decided. Everything is the Republican’s fault and the Democrats had nothing to do with the mess, which is arrant nonsense. Every objection to the proposed solution is mere obstructionism in support of an alleged failed ideological philosophy that virtually no one actually advocates. The Democrats spent eight years demogoging every conceivable issue, and it continues apace. But what works when you are in opposition is not an admirable facet of leadership. If the Democrats actually want bipartisanship, maybe they can start with basic honesty and work from there. That they are merely paying lip service to the concept is evident from their own words.
