The headline of Joseph Berger’s New York Times Politics piece is, “Senate Republicans to Oppose Obama’s Spending Plans.”
There is a certain something—a sense of parsimony—missing from the headline, isn’t there? I mean, doesn’t “Senate Republicans to Oppose Obama’s Plans” provide a more comprehensive description with one less word?
Even shorter is, “Senate Republicans to Obstruct Obama.”
And is it really necessary to mention the POTUS? “Senate Republicans to Obstruct” pretty much captures everything notable about the Senate Republicans over the past two years…. (I mean, other than from a few freak shows on the side.)
