Quote Of The Day

The QOTD for today actually comes to us from a NY Times editorial in 2005 which clearly states their understanding of the job of an opposition party:

Mr. Bush has reacted by railing against Democrats for obstruction — as if Democrats are duty-bound to breathe life into his agenda and, even sillier, as if opposing a plan that the people do not want is an illegitimate tactic for an opposition party.

Why I believe that is exactly the point the right is now arguing. As witnessed by the editorial, the Democrats, lefty blogs and much of the media thought it was fair play in 2005. Take heed, Republicans and don’t end up breathing life into a corpse. The Democrats didn’t apologize for killing Social Security reform. And it obviously didn’t hurt them electorally.

Question: did killing SS reform in 2005 make America “ungovernable?”

More importantly, did that mean the NY Times wanted the Bush agenda to “fail”?

Heh … Archives are a bitch, aren’t they?
