A left-center friend defended to me the Obama/Congress idea of ramming healthcare through.
“You didn’t mind it when Bush did it,” he said.
Actually, he can’t know that (and I do recall having some hesitations about how rancorous it was all becoming) but more to the point -and the conversation broke off, so I could not say it to him- if something is reprehensible when a president/congress you hate does it, isn’t it still reprehensible when a president/congress you don’t hate does it?
So it goes; round and round.
Wow. How everyone has aged in just six years. I guess we all have.
