Broder's Bipartisanship: Ignore Issues Where There is Disagreement
Today David Broder reveals the silliness of his bipartisanship fetish for all the world to see:
It was not nostalgia or a desire for companionship that brought four former Senate leaders together in a meeting room on Capitol Hill on Tuesday morning, but rather a sense of alarm at the breakdown in civility and at the fierce partisanship that has infected Congress and blocked action on national priorities. . . . Tom Daschle of South Dakota said, "Our goal is not to find common ground among the four of us on every single issue but to find those areas on which common ground can be found, and then see if we can become the catalyst for bringing that common ground to Congress."
Um, thanks Tom. You did a fine job of
rolling over finding common ground when you and Senate Dems voted for the Iraq Debacle in 2002. A little too much bipartisanship then don't you think?
