Liberal Columnists the Incompetents


Oh look, it's yet another Op-Ed columnist ranting and raving about the incompetence of President Bush. (At least this one isn't dogging our troops.)


Being the pragmatist I am, I find myself saddened to see how untrue to the liberalness of being a Liberal these folks have become.

It's easy to point out flaws and be divisive. Heck, we have all known spoiled kids who throw tantrums when they can't get their way. For grown-ups, it's much more the measure of the politic to actually work to advance the agenda.

In any case, I'm not sure where Meyerson gets his data on his Medicare complaints. The changes he's yakking about have been in effect for a mere 25 days and perhaps a rush to judgment is just for the sake of a rush. I'd like to see those Medicare numbers broken down or at least attributed -- but hey, his is only an Op-Ed column and not hard news.

To rephrase the last paragraph of Meyerson's Op-Ed, "More and more, the key question for liberals and Democrats is that of the "Old Perfessor," Casey Stengel: Can't anybody here play this game?

Bush the Incompetent
( -- Incompetence is not one of the seven deadly sins, and it's hardly the worst attribute that can be ascribed to George W. Bush. But it is this president's defining attribute. Historians, looking back at the hash that his administration has made of his war in Iraq, his response to Hurricane Katrina and his Medicare drug plan, will have to grapple with how one president could so cosmically botch so many big things -- particularly when most of them were the president's own initiatives.

Op-Eds living on the far edge of either wing are rarely good journalism, unless your glasses are colored yellow.
