Gold standard, Double Standard

Posted by revkharma on September 12, 2012

Recall during the DNC convention, there was a little fuss about leaving out a couple of items from the platform. We were told over and over that the president did NOT write it, and anyway, it is just a document for the group, not anything that binds anyone and really does not reflect the views and plans of the party, or the campaign. Pay no attention to it, we were told by various and sundry media outlets and pundits.

Today, the local paper reprints an editorial from of all places The Chicago Tribune.

It criticizes the elephants for inserting a section which suggests forming a committee to examine the idea and possible consequences of some sort of return to a gold standard for financial stability.

They even go so far as to quote from William Jennings Bryan’s legendary “ Cross of Gold” speech.

I am just curious, why is it so important when the elephant party has something in it’s platform, and irrelevant when the jackass party has, or omits, something in it’s platform?

 

Sometimes you just have to wonder.
