Indeedeheh: The Punting Democrats Edition
When it comes to economic problems, there’s no doubt that the Republicans aren’t blameless, so don’t imagine that I won’t be willing to hold them accountable for their actions--often irresponsible and self-serving--on this issue. But then there’s Harry Reid.
Let’s just say that I agree with a good chunk of this short article from Tom Bemis on MarketWatch.com.
I do disagree with one thing, though: Bemis states that he thinks that proclaiming ignorance is a good political move for the Democrats. He might be right, but I can’t imagine that an elected official admitting that he’s clueless on an important issue is ever a good thing. If that casts any kind of a shadow on Obama at all--which, perhaps it doesn’t--then it doesn’t help his presidential bid, does it?
I personally think that Harry Reid just gave the Republicans a gift wrapped pro-McCain ad.
Picture it with somber music, an authoritative voiceover: “The economy is in trouble and our leaders need to take action. What is the Democrat’s plan?”
Harry Reid: “No one knows what to do...”
Voiceover: “Harry Reid and the Democrats aren’t ready to lead on one of the most important issues of our time, but John McCain has a plan to cut government spending, strengthen the economy, and make jobs.”
Seriously. Gift wrapped.
