  •  Americans don't do nuance very well (7+ / 0-)

    this political move seems like it will depend a lot on depending on nuance

    "Look - these items we can all agree on - can't we at least pass these"

    It still amounts to a broad government shutdown - and they are starting to look like they are trying to twist themselves out of being the target of the blame - and it requires these drawn out piecemeal approaches

    American's are notorious for short attention spans and lack of nuance with regard to politics - something that typically plays well in the Republican wheelhouse - unfortunately for them though - this gambit requires attention and nuance to get their message

    As has been pointed out - it is easily swatted down - AS LONG AS the Democrats don't get caught up in explaining why it is the wrong approach in a long winded nuanced explanation
