Looking For That Enthusiasm Gap?

Leave a comment

Dear Uber-Smart Pundits and Obama Administration Adivsors,

If you’re still looking for why there is an enthusiasm gap between Democrats and the Republican Teabagging Party this year, look no further.  I’ve found it for you:

Congress punts tough choices until after election.

It took a lot of time and hard looking, but I think this may be what the whole ‘gap thing’ might just be about.  It is, after all, largely what the Senate, and by extension, Congress, has done for the better part of the past two years.  But maybe you’d like to discuss that with your Beltway cocktail buddies and form some advisory panels and think about it for another 18-24 months before jumping to any conclusions.  You wouldn’t want to be judged as being too hasty or partisan or anything else, after all…
