Projection

Ann Althouse, a Professor at the UW Law School has a popular blog. She is moderate to liberal, having voted for Bush in 2004 and Obama in 2008.

She had this interesting comment about Rahm Emmanuel and Hillary Clinton both having said recently that "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste."


Althouse comments:

What if George Bush or Dick Cheney had said something like that openly? It's the kind of line that people used to imagine Bush people saying in secret.
One of her commenters replies:
The left engages in massive projection. That which they accuse, they are. Now Bush made his own mistakes, but the idiotic accusations of the left come from their own approach and shadow.
Given the claims that the Right wanted to stifle our freedom of speech (through the Patriot Act) and the fact that it is the Left that is jonesing for the fairness doctrine to return, (and I could go on and on), all I can say is Amen to that!
