Meanwhile, the beat goes on
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, November 09, 2006

Jack Murtha:
"I was disappointed to hear the same old rhetoric coming from the president. He did not speak about a change of policy in Iraq. Changing the secretary does not change the policy, and the policy is set by the White House. We need a change in Iraq that is based on redeployment because that is what is best for America," Murtha said.
Ah the glow of bi-partisan cooperation is just warming my heart. The tone is certainly "a changin'", wouldn't you say?

Bipartisanship comes in policy. Anyone can play the "cherry pick the quotes" game, or worry about office space.

Policy matters. The rest is just entertainment.

What’s uncivil about Murtha’s tone? He’s literally saying he disagrees with Bush’s Iraq policy. Is that somehow inappropriate?

I seem to remember an incoming Speaker by the name of Gingrich who said all sorts of provocative things immediately after winning in 1994.

The tone is uncompromising, AL, not necessarily uncivil. The point of "bi-paritisan cooperation" is found in the second word.

Dismiss it if you want Scott, but I just so happen to know people over the age of 13 who actually know when to behave professionally. That many elected folks don’t is not just some inconsequential coincidence.

Yeah, but that’s Washington DC — it happens on both sides of the aisle, and it happens in businesses and professions across the US. In politics you see it when it happens because the media cover everything. Moreover, you don’t see the friendly exchanges and polite interactions because they don’t make the news. Instead you have talk jocks, Drudge, Rawstory and other outlets that leap on any ’sexy’ story or something that will arose emotions and use that to fire up the political junkies.

But that doesn’t mean there won’t be real bipartisan work this session. It’s just too bad that people on each side of the aisle think that they are somehow fundamentally superior to the people on the other side of the aisle. That’s simply silly.
