Our On-Going Balancing Act

06 January 2011 @ 08:29

Over at Legal Insurrection, Professor William Jacobson makes a dead-on accurate point [tip of the fedora to Instapundit]:

The mainstream media will undertake, and already has undertaken, a concerted effort to blame the Republican House for everything that goes wrong, for not living up to promises, for living up to promises, for failing to compromise, for selling out, etc.

Do not fall for it.

Holding the Republican House to its commitments is one thing; falling for Operation Demoralize is something else.

Quite. But let us not forget that the Left is also doing this to delegitimize the Republicans in the Congress, and by association the TEA Party folks, in the eyes of those Americans who are not part of the VRWC.

They will use any weapon that comes to hand or is in the arsenal that supports the Leftist Playbook. These are people who do not believe there are absolute truths. They see morality as being relative, therefore, they have no morality. Everything is permissible. ‘By any means necessary’ is the Left’s motto.

At the same time we must resist this attempt by Progressives to demoralize us, we have to discern when to pick-up the GOP Leadership’s legs and put them in the fire and when to offer them some encouragement.

No one ever said being a Guardian Of Liberty was going to be easy.
