100 Days Later and Just As Angry
Byron York takes a closer look at the continuing anger from those identifying themselves as liberals:
These should be happy times for liberals and the Democratic Party as a whole. They control the White House and Congress. Opposition Republicans are leaderless and lost. So why do some Democrats, particularly those farther to the left, appear so angry?
I’d say the anger runs deeper than political projections:
Their president of hope and change is against a special commission to investigate Bush-era terrorist interrogations. He is escalating the war in Afghanistan. He seems determined to bail out the nation’s richest bankers. For some on the left, it can be difficult to abide those actions and still maintain the image of one’s self atop the moral high ground. So, according to Anderson, they lash out at the easy target presented by the tea parties.
