Ornstein has been under the auspices of the American Enterprise Institute for decades, IIRC, so I assumed that he had some kind of allegiance to conservatism. PBS' NewsHour, and its prior iterations, has been dragging him out to represent the right for as long as I can remember.

McConnell's outing him as a lefty certainly fits with Ornstein's recent book with Thomas Mann of the Brookings Institution titled, "It's Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism."

"America’s two main political parties have given up their traditions of compromise, endangering our very system of constitutional democracy. And one of these parties has taken on the role of insurgent outlier; the Republicans have become ideologically extreme, scornful of compromise, and ardently opposed to the established social and economic policy regime."

Every review that I saw, heard or read was like that. The cryptomarxists get a complete pass!

Check the video at the source. Hat tip to McConnell!

Mitch allowed this amnesty disaster to make it to the floor.
He has been meeting the evil Obama in secret to ram this awful bill for K street pals and billionaire pals .

He s a traitor and now he is letting Reid ram thru cloture .

This outstanding piece of agitprop is aimed at convincing the rubes that Good Ole Mitch is one of us after all!

The fact of the matter is, IMNVHO, is that it demonstrates the opposite. Mitch shows us how he is able to consider Good Ole Norm a colleague; how he is able to compromise with the Far Left; how he has been able to cover this fake SOB's flanks for years.

Mitch, at great profit to himself, has long enabled The Left to carry on with its programs, while conducting a distracting charade. He, Boehner, and if there's enough duct tape, Graham, ought to be stuck together and heli-dropped beyond the 200-mile limit.

I'll settle for him being primaried out.
