I’d take Tea Party-types more seriously … August 31, 2010

… if they every once in a while stopped their yammering about everything they don’t like in the world, everything they think is wrong with everybody but themselves and what all the government is doing that is communist and said — hey, this is a good thing and hey Mr. President, thanks for getting this done.

I’m talking about this:  Something that cuts through the accumulated sediment of decades of rules layered one on top of another in the interest of national security, many of which maybe made sense once but no longer do. The net effect will spark exports, reduce the trade deficit and — gasp — maybe allow some industries to expand output, requiring — double gasp — more workers.

Best said maybe by James Carafano of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative group that advocates free enterprise and limited government.

“It really is a twofer,” Carafano said “It does stimulate exports and it does have security benefits.”

But it doesn’t stimulate random anger, doesn’t fit the “Obama-As-Socialist” narrative, so I’m not holding my breath waiting for Rush or Rupert Murdoch or even CNN to tell anyone about it.

And that is what’s  really wrong with the current political climate — it’s “all” or “nothing,” and that’s just propaganda that’ll get us nowhere no matter who is in charge.
