George Nethercutt, presenting the "other side" over at the Inlander this week, complains about polarity and its effect on Congress's inability to accomplish anything. He says, "More negative comments about Congress solve nothing." And yet he makes negative comments about President Obama as if he's found the solution. "President Obama should dismount from his high horse..." "With a Pied Piper in the White House..." "...the economic death threat that lurks for the United States as citizens are tempted by the muse’s intoxicating music and message." "...a contrarian president." On one hand Mr Nethercutt righteously deplores such negativity and on the other he relies on it. I suppose I should cut him a little slack. After all, the contrarian high-horse Pied-Piping leading-us-to-death President probably started it.
