And wouldn't you know it, people seem to be falling back on tired, conservative tropes. I think that might be because nobody in the damned Democratic party can be bothered to explain to them any other way of thinking about this. (It's a "center-right" country dontcha know.) So yeah, a little ideology would be quite helpful, but only if we actually want to solve these problems rather than hasten the pace of the country's implosion.
Right - and I don't think "implosion" is hyperbole on her part. Conservatives would rather destroy the country than let the Democrats score a point. I'm sensing that this is something that no one on his staff wants to tell the president.
