Is It Wrong To Give The Republicans The Benefit Of The Soft Bigotry Of Low Expectations?

Answer: yes, it is wrong to give the president and the Speaker of the House the benefit of the soft bigotry of low expectations for failing to enact the agenda they have promised lo these last seven years.  I urge them to stop blaming one another.  Personal responsibility is a virtue.  Without virtue where are we as a constitutional republic.  This is no time for spin.  This is the time to accept accountability.  Rather than whining that “who knew x, y, or z was so complicated,” why not take as a starting point, “my previous career as a con artist was supposed to be a transferable skill, but the rules sure are different down here in the swamp.  They actually like to read the fine print.  Every goddamn last one of them is a lawyer and a future lobbyist.  And they might be even more mendacious than me.”
