. . . progressive "outrage" about a spending "freeze" as confirmation that "teh libruls" only want to spend America into the ground?
I mean doesn't the "typical, hard working, American" feel we need to control the deficit?
So aren't we (once again) walking right into the right wing trap?
Does anybody consider the "optics" of anything we do anymore?
Or is the self righteous satisfaction of being "right" enough?
P.S. I'm not trying to debate the merits/pitfalls of a partial spending freeze, just wondering if we could do a better job at explaining to someone other than EACH OTHER wtf we stand for.
P.S.S. Note that I am using the pronoun "we" . . . so this is not an "us" against "them" diary folks . . . this is a "how can we make the American people understand what we are trying to do" diary.
