I think that it is a strange choice for John Carney to set himself up as the Democrat with no ideas. It hurt him in his primary against Markell, and now he seems determined to repeat his mistake. I mean, we can assume he’ll be facing a Democrat in a primary election at some point, and he will want to have some kind of Democratic brand identity when that roles around, right?
And yet, Carney wastes ink in this weekends News Journal telling us that 1) Returns day is awesome 2) People want bipartisanship 3) The debt is the worst thing ever, and 4) He is proud of addressing the debt “crisis” by having voted for a commission report so flawed and lacking that never made it out of committee. Genius!
1, 2 and 3 are false and 4 is just odd. The Simpson Blows report, really? That’s what you want people to remember.
