Asymmetric warfare

I found this great article in New York Magazine which had this not so great quote:

But a Republican win offers by far the more likely prospects for immediate Keynesian stimulus, partly because Democrats in Congress have shown no taste for the kind of economic sabotage that the Republican caucus has engaged in.

In other words, the Democrats will never match the Republicans in terms of their Rules of Engagement. When Republicans openly admit that their top goal is to defeat the president and engage in voter suppression to accomplish their goals, it becomes clear to me that their endgame is winning, not helping the American people.

This is a war that the Democrats don’t have the stomach to win, because for all their faults, missed promises, and outright lies, there is a level that they won’t stoop to.

When we talk about bipartisan support in the last decade, it is Democrats who have supported Republicans, for better or worse, on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, TARP, campaign finance, and more.  In return, the Democrats get stonewalled by Republicans who are fearful of unelected personalities like Grover Norquist and Rush Limbaugh.

This is smart for the GOP if the goal is winning. Consciously or subconsciously, either we vote for Democrats who won’t get anything done, or vote for Republicans who will have the ability to get stuff done. That stuff is likely to include many of the ideas that Democrats have been pushing, or something completely different- there is no way to know for sure. Either way, we can be sure the Republicans will take credit for any success they have. If that success is best for the American people, is it worth the cost of voting for the GOP?


  1. This marketing post is missing the call to action. Where’s the third act??

  2. I can’t think of one. Care to write it?

  3. To answer your question: no.
