We all hate people who are obstructionist to what we consider progress.
The problem is not everyone defines progress the same way.
Progress to one may be hugely regressive to someone else.
So when 47 senators sent a cautionary letter to Iran’s leadership this week about making a deal on nukes, which perhaps comes down to less now for more later…
– Some called it obstructionist to the negotiations and even a potential violation of the Logan Act.
– While others saw it as progress in bringing us back from the brink of a dangerous and (very) bad deal involving legitimizing weapons of mass destruction for a dangerous regime to all.
Two partisan sides to every story…and each side capitalizes on theirs.
“That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!”
But history inevitably tells the true story (or closer to it) based on the outcomes of action or inaction (aka acts of commission and omission).
With the tornado of spin from the pundits on news, news, and more news, someone reminded me of the adage:
“Liar, liar pants on fire”
“Don’t believe everything you hear, and only half of what you see.” 😉
