The recent attacks by Republican leaders and their ideological fellow-travelers on the effort to reform the health-care system have been so misleading, so disingenuous, that they could only spring from a cynical effort to gain partisan political advantage. By poisoning the political well, they’ve given up any pretense of being the loyal opposition. They’ve become political terrorists, willing to say or do anything to prevent the country from reaching a consensus on one of its most serious domestic problems.
A commenter at Nick Marinelli’s blog wonders why Democrats think democrats think “all this dissent is manufactuered”.
Well, it’s not that I think the dissent is manufactured so much as the anger which is being drummed up by the malicious lies people are being fed about healthcare reform.
