I hate when people say, “The problem with politics is there is too much talking and not enough action.”
It’s too safe. It doesn’t commit the person to any particular course of action. Specific proposals might be controversial, but “doing something” is basically never controversial.
It’s too easy. It’s the sort of thing anyone can say in a conversation to seem wise. And because it’s a risk free way to seem wise, it will be brought up way more than is appropriate.
Yes, paralysis by analysis is a thing. Yes, it can be a problem. But it’s rarely the case that in politics the problem is “too much deliberation.”
