* Herbert (NYT) … why is anyone listening?

Posted by Lew Weinstein on January 28, 2009

Bob Herbert writes in the NYT …

  • What’s up with the Republicans? Have they no sense that their policies have sent the country hurtling down the road to ruin?
  • The G.O.P.’s latest campaign is aimed at undermining President Obama’s effort to cope with the national economic emergency by attacking the spending in his stimulus package and repeating ad nauseam the Republican mantra for ever more tax cuts.
  • The question that I would like answered is why anyone listens to this crowd anymore.
  • This is the party that preached fiscal discipline and then cut taxes in time of war.
  • This is the party that still wants to put the torch to Social Security and Medicare.
  • Why is anyone still listening?

LMW COMMENT … President Obama will listen, but (I surely hope) will not bend from the principles and the people who elected him.
