Carol Platt Liebau: Question for Dems: WWYD?

Question for Dems: WWYD?

The predictable Elinor Clift tries to have it both ways -- lambasting the Republican leadership for supposed homophobia even as she excoriates them for being insufficiently tough on Mark Foley. Again, it's worth asking: Based only on the emails (which was all Hastert had), what would you do?

Obviously, the Dems and their friends in the MSM have no answer. It's so much easier simply to attack, without any solutions of one's own.

And to divert. As Bill Kristol points out, it says something pretty significant about Democratic principles and priorities that they're fixated on a one-man sex scandal (that didn't even involve sex) at a time of great peril in the world.

The problem for Democrats is that they have no ideas about that -- just as they have no answers about how they'd have handled the Foley matter differently. That's the reason they want to talk only about Foley, and remain conspicuously silent on matters that are infinitely more important.

Ask the Democrats: What would you do? And in the hollow silence that follows, realize that this is a party that is profoundly unserious about anything except regaining power.

Finger pointing never solved any problem, ever. An employee misses a deadline. Employer's response, bash the employee.

But wait, was there a deficiency of training? Was there miscommunication? Was there a host of other factors?

Usually.

So how is bashing the employee going to correct all these other factors, let alone redeeming the deadline?

Most folks understand that the employer steps up to the plate, says its his fault, and here's what we're going to do to fix it is the best response.

I should add, "good" employers do that. Yas, Democrats are not good employers, and more and more of us are having that driven home, time after time.

That sounded eerily like "An attack never fed a hungry child."

Which came back to the front of my consciousness during the height of the Foley "Masturgate".
