In response to a New York Times editorial yesterday, in which Democrats were encouraged to “press their political advantage” in Congress, Erick Erickson of RedState writes for FoxNews.com:
Never mind that the Republicans kept the House of Representatives. Never mind that the Senate Democrats have several vulnerable Senators up for re-election in 2014 from states Barack Obama lost twice. The Democrats must act.
Americans should welcome the Times’ editors’ call for the Democrats to do something. According to the editors, the Democrats’ should go big on “taxes, guns, education spending, [and] financial regulation.”
Yes, please, act on all those items. …The House Republicans will never go along for the ride. The American people will see just how far afield the Democrats really are. Then in 2014, the American voters can remind the New York Timeseditors that most Americans use their paper as a litter box liner, not as a guide Washington should ever follow.
