From Our How Wrong Can You Be? Department

THE REPUBLICANS’ RESPONSE TO EVERYTHING IS “NO.” How wrong can the Left be?

You mean: aside from every single question of public policy to come up since the term “Left Wing” was first printed on a t-shirt?

That’s what I mean, Dolly.

First: the GOP health bill.

Second: On so-called Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming. Do the research. You will find that, confronted with the Gore-Hansen juggernaut, the only sane response is to, in the words of Bill Buckley, “Stand athwart history shouting, ‘STOP!'”

Third: On national defense — the present administration was handed a viable plan that it turned right around and proceeded to break.

Fourth: On the economy — everything the Democrats have proposed is wrong. Destructive. Counter-factual AND counter-intuitive. When you see somebody setting fire to your house, is not “NO!” an appropriate response? But the Right (a larger set than just the Republican party) has had the proven-effective solutions: individual liberty, free markets, lower taxes, smaller government.

It actually seems to me that this canard is just like all the others: projection and transferrence. In truth, it delineates the Left’s responses to these issues. The sensible desiderata are met with ever-louder, ever-shriller “NO!” from tantrum-throwing Democrats.
