A word on ambiguous commentary

Kevin Buck's commentary "Let's talk post-partisan partisans" (Feb. 10, 2009) is ambiguous. Not confusing, because it carries the usual liberal rhetoric, but simply ambiguous.

Supposedly, Obama "wants to end partisan politics and begin an era of American politics," yet the famed nearly trillion dollar "stimulus package" was created and completely designed by Democrats with absolutely zero input from any Republican.

The icing on that cake is that Democrats then, without conscious or wit, actually demanded Republicans simply sign onto it.

Mr. Buck echoes Obama's and the Democrats' mantra of "we won. It's our turn now." If that is the new motto by which to politic and govern, then Democrats need to pass all of their dangerous, anti-USA trash without calling upon Republicans.

Likewise, when it all doesn't work, they can say "we won; it's our turn." But they are too cowardly to do that.

To wit: The first multi-million dollar TARP bailout (of the fall of 2008) could have been easily passed with only the votes of the Democratic majority.

Instead, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi loudly criticized Republicans for not voting with them.

Now we do not know how those billions were spent and Democrats would claim that the fiasco was "bipartisan"; get the picture?

Democrats espouse the "eight years" of the Bush administration and how bad it was. They selectively avoid broadcasting that they had the majority control for the last two years of the Bush administration.

Those two years were deadly to our economy. It's very easy to check out the numbers on the Internet of such things as the Dow, unemployment figures etc. and compare the data and determine how the country took on large nosedive from 2006 to 2008.

Democrats happily spent right along with Republicans during those two years, but now when Republicans protest taxing hard-working Americans to pay for trillions of dollars called a (raging-out-of-control) "stimulus package," they are called "obstructionists."

Bottom line: If Republicans spend like Democrats, they err; if they don't, they are obstructionists.
Get the picture?
