One of the Left’s favorite tricks is to completely sidestep arguments that are made by attacking motivations. It works like so,
Republican: There’s a hole in the side of the boat! We’ve got to fix it before we sink!
Democrat: Yes, I agree, but you’re just saying that because you’re racist!
Republican: Ok, so what we’ll do is….wait, what?
Republican: Ok, so you think I’m a racist. Can we fix the hole anyway? You agreed that we need to fix it!
Democrat: I think instead of doing that, we need to talk about your hatred of black people!
This continues on indefinitely, until the boat sinks.
It’s no different with the budget. On the one hand, Democrats will agree that the size of the deficit is unsustainable. But, when it’s time to do something, we hear nonsense like this from Frank Lautenberg instead:
… The Republicans in Congress claim they’re concerned about the budget balance, but it’s a disguise! It’s not true! It’s a lie! That’s not what they want. They want — they want other people not to be able to have their own opinions. They don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But we’ll give it to them anyway.
See? Balancing the budget isn’t REALLY about balancing the budget, it’s about (insert ridiculous motivation Democrats have made up here); so let’s insult them and talk about that instead of doing anything.
Just as a side note, you don’t “give” us the freedoms in the Constitution, Frank Lautenberg. They don’t belong to you, you don’t get to dole them out as you see fit, and if you’re confused about that, we will be happy to educate you on the topic.
