|Up with Chris Hayes 7/7/2012 -- Whine, Blame and Demonize|

At first, although I knew I'd disagree with the main ideological thrust, I felt as if Hayes was onto something good, a news show with intelligent and brave conversation, but, each week the show sinks deeper into partisan propaganda, whining, blaming Republicans for everything and demonizing the Right.
I wrote yesterday how sad it is to watch Obama spin bad jobs numbers -- it's all getting so old. The Democrats can't justify their agenda -- they can only blame the Right. Statism is failing and the Left is desperate. This is not to say that the Republican Party is standing strong and offering real solutions. Republicans have been complicit in support of our interventionist government system, but a strong faction of the GOP is now demanding something different.
Hayes had a small business owner on the program who said his main problem is lack of certainty because of all the taxes and government interventions. Jared Bernstein attempted to refute the uncertainty argument from on high as an expert government economist, but the small business guy didn't back down, because the business guy is living with the interventions and taxes, so he could rattle off the specific cases of interventions and hidden taxes that are crippling his small business. Small businesses make up the engine of job growth when there are no obstacles preventing the businesses from hiring, so until there's a business environment which is friendly to small businesses, there will be very little job growth.
Hayes blames the bad jobs numbers on Republicans. If the Repubs weren't blocking Obama's jobs programs, a million people could go to work. Republicans don't have philosophical faith in this type of stimulus (it failed miserably a couple of years ago, and it has failed in the past over and over), but Leftists like Hayes don't accept the difference in ideology then make a case for stimulus which refutes the objections -- no, they claim that the Right hates Obama (insert racism) so much that they reject everything he offers, regardless of the merits of what he offers. Of course, when the Democrats reject GOP House bills dealing with job growth, the rejections are based on ideological differences, not that they hate Republicans. See how this works? Hayes is ruining his show with so much partisan whining and blaming. If Hayes is out of ideas, then okay, I guess he has to do something to defend Democrats, because that's what his bosses want, but I thought Hayes was different than Ed Schultz and Lawrence O'Donnell -- I guess not.
