Analysis found to be lacking

I read a recent Clarion article regarding the state of Washington, D.C., titled “Analysis” from the AP. Upon finishing, my first thought was, where is the analysis? The correct title should have been, “Redudant Recycled Liberal Hack Job.” The first half of the article got the mandatory asinine Democratic talking points plastered in it. The first “analysis” was how spiteful the “mean ol’ Republicans” were. The Republicans proposed withholding the Senate’s salary until they pass a budget. The “analysis” proclaimed this petty and mean spirited. However, I saw no mention of the simple fact the Senate has not passed a budget in almost four years. Four years!

Maybe, just maybe, a lack of a budget has contributed to the additional 6.5 trillion dollars of debt the USA has added in those four years.

Next, the article chastised those mean ol’ Republicans for voting down the 50 billion dollar Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill. How dare they? This affects children! Once again no mention of the fact, half of the money in the bill was not for hurricane relief. It was for pork projects. Analysis indeed.

I am certainly no fan of the establishment Republicans either, but enough is enough. Quit being in the tank for the Democratic Party.

There is great irony in this “analysis” though. Continue promoting and cheerleading these failed policies. See what happens. Jobs are being lost. Newsweek magazine is gone. Time magazine, AP, New York Times, and others will be gone in a couple of years. GE is trying to get rid of NBC. Who will be left? You are signing your own pink slip.
