I saw it in the Sun Current, in a story titled "Congressman Erik Paulsen talks taxes." It's about another photo op Paulsen's pals at various Chambers of Commerce set up at a local company. One topic was the subject of Bush The Lesser's tax cuts. Here's what He Whom Talks Like Ramstad But Votes Like Bachmann had to say:
“If I had to predict, unfortunately, given Congress’ track record of leadership, this is all going to be the week of Dec. 25,” Paulsen said. “Right? I mean it’s going to get pushed out. Because Congress acts on deadlines, unfortunately.Which is kind of funny. Here's why: Paulsen was selected to a Party Leadership Position in 2009.
“And then, at that time you’ll see the media sort of accentuate, you know, it’ll all get played out about the sort of the challenges coming at the end of the year. … I can see the scenario building, and it’s predictable from that sense. And, we should be dealing with it right now.”
That's vintage Paulsen, folks: trashing the leadership you're part of, but not mentioning your role in said leadership. One reason Congress has such a low approval rating is "leaders" like Erik Paulsen.
