It’s been a Republican trait for years to go over the top in exaggerating about the Democratic Party. And they’re doing it again with the talking points in this op-ed from the Washington Post, which is made-to-order for Fox News. As former Gov. Ed Rendell says, "They pounce on anything someone in our party says and make it seem like it represents the whole party.”
The accuracy of the characterizations is always suspect. Our host, in a report on new abortion legislation, used this against the whole Democratic Party even though the legislation he was discussing was for single states. What could very well stymie the GOP tactic is that positions being discussed by the Democrats are popular, such as taxing the wealthy and gun reform.
Such is life in politics.
