Hillary Clinton recently lamented the “excessive partisanship” that courses through the country:
NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday night that excessive partisanship flowing through the nation’s political system is causing the U.S. to march “backwards instead of forward” and pointed to fall elections as a sign of how the country might tackle problems.
The former secretary of state reflected on her time at the State Department, the U.S. relationship with Russia and the advice she gives to young women during her appearance at the annual Women in the World summit. But when the moderator asked her to address the nation’s future, Clinton cited the need to “get back to evidence-based decision-making.”
“There is just pure ideology, pure partisanship. We disguise a commercial interest behind a political facade and the result is that we’re kind of marching backwards instead of forward,” Clinton said. She said the U.S. needs to address economic hardships facing many young people to produce an “inclusive prosperity.”
The problem is, the fish rots from the head down. And that’s a lot of rot.
Barack Obama set the tone for his rule over America right at the beginning:
President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.
He made it clear right from the start that he was made emperor and he was going to tolerate no dissent. Shortly afterward House Republicans were shut out of stimulus negotiations.
And the disrespect has not stopped since.
A search for “Obama mocks GOP” yields over two million hits.
There is an almost endless supply, but arguably the most infantile is one of the most recent:
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — President Obama called the GOP’s latest budget plan a “stinkburger” in a speech here Wednesday, employing a series of zingers to draw a contrast with Republicans on the economy in an election year.
The President of the United States, the king of the selfies, a pathologic narcissist who continually gets his ass kicked by Vladimir Putin, calls something a “stinkburger.” When you thought you knew that Barack Obama could not go any lower, he doesn’t disappoint.
Fortunately for democrats, brain dead young liberals who are inspired by Karl Marx and worship Saul Alinsky and get their news by watching Ellen and Stephen Colbert are aroused by this classless behavior.
Barack Obama has spent his entire tenure mocking the opposition and demeaning the office which he holds. So it’s laughable when Hillary pleads for bipartisanship to fix Obamacare:
“I think we are on the right track in many respects but I would be the first to say if things aren’t working then we need people of good faith to come together and make evidence-based changes,”
Sorry, Hill. Your boss burned that bridge long ago. Bipartisanship is dead because Obama killed it.
Show no respect, get no respect.
