I know some of you will see this as unfair. This is a general view I and others have of the two parties in Congress and the White House. And yes, there are exceptions to this. These are the general party responses and positions to these issues.

  1. I don’t think it’s unfair at all. It’s too accurate to be unfair. It’s (gasp) fair and balanced. I laughed when I kept reading how “cut taxes” was part of the “solution” to every Republican strategy. Then of course, we have Obama who is playing a solo table tennis game while Democrats don’t know what to think about it. Only in Washington.
