12. Arghhhh.....why do we accept "sound bites" the same as the reich wing?


I'm glad SlimJimmy put Santorum's statement in context. Yes the statement, "I don't care what it is going to be - it doesn't matter" appears damaging BUT....what he is saying is even if the unemployment rate dropped to 3%, his campaign would continue with its current message. He isn't going to tailor his message or proposals simply because the rate is up or down. That was an honest statement.

Now do I think his economic plan would do anything more than worsen the situation? Yes, it would further erode the middle class and balloon the deficit while making the rich (including him) even richer.

But let's stop buying into the soundbite mentality. We should pride ourselves on being honest brokers with some degree of intellectual honesty. I know it is taking the high road when the limp balls on the right will not but it is the respectable thing to do.
