Now, I have to ask…If Democrats control the House, the Senate, and 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Then how can there still be a “vast” right-wing conspiracy?
Emphasis on the vast. I won’t try and pretend like there isn’t a right-wing conspiracy against Democrats, but its probably about as vast as the left-wing conspiracies against Bush and the Republicans.
I think it is a tragic case of confusion when parties and leaders OF BOTH PARTIES blame partisan conflict for the unpopularity of their programs. I believe it is an example of elected officials assuming a mandate which doesn’t exist, and reacting negatively when public opinion is not what they think it “should” be.
In the end, it makes Clinton look a bit foolish and contradictory, because if the conspiracy is vast enough to derail Obama’s agenda…then doesn’t it stand to reason that the Democrats are in for a tough run in 2010?
