| Michael Bennet luuuuuuuuvs him some bipartisanship.
Mark Udall luuuuuuuuvs him some bipartisanship.
Big-time newspaper editors like the Post's Curtis Hubbard also luuuuuuuuvs them some bipartisanship.
Here are some wonderful policies of the United States that have, ummmmm, enjoyed bipartisan support:
Something else that enjoys bipartisan support?
Political lies about the state of our economy and willful ignorance about how the deficit is actually shrinking in real time:
For the record, last year, over President Obama's first four years, the deficit shrunk by about $300 billion. This year, the deficit is projected to be about $600 billion smaller than when the president took office. We are, in reality, currently seeing the fastest deficit reduction in several generations.
Benen blames the Republican fearmongering and the media's obsession and he's right. But it's not as if deficit fever isn't a bipartisan illness. I'm going to guess that a majority of the Democrats believe this because they assume the President wouldn't be focusing on the deficit like a laser (and taking credit for the cuts made so far but proposing even more) if it was a problem that was coming under control.
And yet, 90% of Americans don't believe the demonstrable, incontrovertible, entirely objective truth.
It's worth pondering why.
But these are all bipartisan, and therefore good, in Michael Bennet's world where bipartisanship is the highest principle and the policy can be good, bad, or indifferent, much like our representatives in Washington, DC.
