Consumer Reports

From New Deal to ‘no deal’ | The Democratic response to the State of the Union Address could be fully summarized in a single word: "No!"

While the President sketched a sweeping vision of reform, promoting the spread of liberty abroad and an ownership society at home, Democrats offered only hysterical opposition to every element of his agenda.

This creates an internal contradiction deep within the liberal soul: While declaring that we live in a dark, disastrous era, they're simultaneously resisting all change.

Democrats contradict their own hero, Bill Clinton when denying there's a Social Security crisis; they oppose even minor alterations regarding our retirement system, dysfunctional tax code, lawsuit abuse, energy production, or abortion regulation.

Instead of FDR's "New Deal," they offer "No Deal;" they've replaced John Kennedy's "New Frontier" with a fearful, reactionary "No Frontier."

It should come as no surprise when voters continue to say "no" to a party of consistent negativity.
