  •  the media are the GOP's enablers (12+ / 0-)

    This government by crisis being an acceptable method only works because the independent, non-partisan arbiters of the national discourse do not call them on it, because that wouldn't be "fair" or "balanced". So the casual observer is not informed how truly aberrant this political behavior is, and how outrageous that the GOP is trying to do an end run around democracy and hold the nation's budget and economy hostage in order to extort the policy platform the voters rejected at the polls.
    And they aren't even trying to hide that is what they're doing. But you won't hear that from the traditional media.
    They'll just report what the Repugs say without providing comment or context, and then simply report the Democratic response and then smugly leave the impression that "both sides do it" or "both" are to blame.
