Has the moral case been made by the left for a universal plan that would overcome the opposition? Does such moral reasoning transcend the economic arguments,political talking points, and ideology of those who seek a universal plan…uniting Americans around the problems we have?
So far, I don’t think so.
I’m still willing to grant Obama leeway in overcoming partisanship, which I think is a worthy moral goal, though it’s a goal with its roots in the day to day, messy realities of politics (pork, personal attacks etc.). As the discussion above highlights, if it means granting this much leeway to leftism as Olopade represents that it does, then it’s not enough for me.
