Is GOP being hypocritical on the deeming?
At the Corner, Daniel Foster replies to Norman Ornstein’s overheated charge that the Republicans are being unprecedentedly hypocritical in denouncing the Democrats’ deeming, since they have used it themselves in the past. As Foster shows, Orstein ignores crucial distinctions. Far from being hypocritical, the Republicans are being principled on this point, even to their own detriment.
Once upon a time, Orstein was a non-partisan student of the technical side of politics. From comments of his in more recent years, my impression is that those days are long past.
