One of the best and most informative political sites on the net is RCP -Real Clear Politics
It chooses many of the key op-eds.editorials and columns from across the US.
and occasionally overseas) on both sides of an issue.It also consolidates polling data that is available, and presents an average.During the campaign it is an invaluable site.There is no editorial bias present.
Today, I spent 40 minutes reading every liberal,anti-tea party article that they chose.On the one hand it was amusing,but on the other hand there was a sadness that these writers could not fathom that a group would come to Washington,refuse to make deals, and would stand for principle.
They were described as Southern bigots, terrorists and so on.
Moreover, while there was universal attacks on Obama for poor handling of the discussions,there was not a word about our economy,and the need to cut spending or prevent the demise of medicare .The overall tone was pessimistic for 2012,even though there was almost a false bravado that giving in to the tea party now was part of some grand strategy.
It reminded me when I was a kid in Brooklyn when we yelled confidently "wait till next year".
The tea party,and the millions who simply are sympathetic to the need to cut spending, bring an end to uncertainty in govt policies(as we discussed yesterday) will be looking forward to 2012, and its not to keep Harry Reid ,Nancy Pelosi or Obama as the caretakers of our future.
