The truth is that the left are the extremists in this case. Our current government shutdown has placed government spending back at Bill Clinton levels. There has been no economic catastrophe. Should we hit the debt ceiling, President Obama is bound by the constitution to pay back our debts by reallocating funds. This whole situation could come to an easy end if President Obama were willing to forego aspects of his ugly and partisan Obamacare law. He isn't. So the fiscal situation deteriorates.

There can be more than one side of an argument. But not according to the media left, whose unearned sense of moral superiority forces them to portray The Other -- the tea party -- as an enemy in need of destruction.
