In yet another "fair and balanced" segment on Fox News Sunday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) called out his cohort, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), when Blunt attempted to lay the blame on Democrats rather than Republican obstruction for the lack of appropriations bills passed in the Senate. What he got in response was host Chris Wallace changing the subject back to one that suited him and telling Durbin their audience didn't want to hear about the topic.
They're more than happy to talk about the subject all day long on Fox as long as they can blame Democrats for legislation being stalled and on President Obama's "failure to lead" that they parrot on there endlessly -- and as long as there's no one to push back and put the blame where it belongs as Durbin did here -- then it's suddenly too into the weeds or boring for the likes of Wallace.
You've got to love the conversation leading into Wallace's comments as well, where he allows Blunt to pretend that Republicans are ever going to agree to closing any tax loopholes. Blunt: "Who's not for that?" Well, if memory serves, that would be you guys senator.
