Vitriol is out of season

Although we are heading into an election cycle, vitriol may be out of season as a The New York Times op-ed by Frank Rich appears to point out. With a March 4th deadline looming on the GOP’s current resolution, and a fiscal year 2012 budget to consider, the last thing the GOP wants is the vitriol and baseless rhetoric of 2010 being compared with the real world numbers of an Obama proposed budget or a GOP-led concurrent resolution.

Arguments around a budget require deference to fact. Discussion of programs and priority. The GOP will have to utter deeper words than “cut.”

    Just give the GOP a little time–they’ll go back to suffering from “hoof in mouth disease”. They still believe they have been successful by working people up with baseless illogical rhetoric. They’re hooked on it–they can’t help themselves. Sadly it has often worked.
