Calling It as It Is

September 26, 2013

Once again, we stand poised on the precipice of economic calamity because the Republican-led House is intent on creating crises to push their agenda.  Unfortunately, too many pundits add to Americans' cynicism by trying to find a way to blame both sides. This week, The Washington Post tried by saying that Democrats hope Republicans will fight to shut down the federal government in hopes of gaining advantage when people figure out the Republicans are to blame.  Playing to cynics also plays well in portraying this as a school yard fight, which, in the age of reality TV and voyeurism, is a sales pitch. It however does no one well if the experts and thought leaders do not play honest umpires to call the balls and strikes as they see them.
