The Democratic Party and the Language of Bankruptcy

The Democratic Party and the Language of Bankruptcy – Michael Knox Beran – National Review Online.

“The administration’s policies are rapidly becoming a joke. One can quibble about the best label for those policies — Keynesian big-statism, tax-and-spend liberalism, socialism lite. What is not in doubt is that the policies have failed to help the economy and are leading to ruin. But the Democratic party can’t abandon the policies because its foremost constituencies, the public-sector unions, are dependent on them.

And so the Democratic leadership has settled on the Hermann Axen strategy. “Our-critics-are-liars-and-haters.”

They can neither take responsibility or admit failure; instead personalize and attack the messengers.
