Yeah I know. I am violating the old adage: no need to point out the astoundingly obvious when the merely obvious will do. Yet, this I could not pass up. Just add this one to the Mount McKinley size pile of bull-hockey from the main-sleaze commie media in their prodigious effort to get the chief commie re-elected so he can continue his work of dismantling the country. You can’t blame commies for agitating and lying for the cause.
But I do find it disappointing that they are so stupid. Just once could we get an evil but brilliant adversary? Perhaps we could meet the Kleptocrats halfway: give us an adversary that can button his fly without a government-issued manual.
This little gem by the WaPo Wonder is called Obama, Democrats are more willing to compromise than GOP. OK, Captain BrainEnvy. You win. Democrats shoved ObamaCare down the throats of an unwilling America (and Republicans took the side of the people). They routinely provide implacable opposition to any Republican judicial nominee who might not bow at the Abortion Altar, while we give their radical nominees a free ride. We’ve allowed you 4 years of no budget, just the CR’s that don’t force you to face your constituents. But the GOP is the uncompromising one.
In his own words:
While polls find that six in 10 Democrats regard themselves as moderate or conservative, nearly three-quarters of Republicans say they are conservative. And tea party Republicans, who loom so large in primaries, are especially averse to giving any ground.
Moreover, Democrats still have a positive view of government and regard trade-offs between taxes and spending as a normal part of governing. Republicans care most about reducing government’s size and in cutting taxes.
Wow. Just wow. Just wow wow wow.
So, Democrats regard themselves as moderate, which is frankly delusional. But of course, their thinking so makes it true, right? And therefore, because Republicans have standards (like the right to life, and by golly, that whole “keep government small and intrusive” thing [incidentally, kind of like the Constitution and Founding Fathers fellows did]), WE are the virulent and uncompromising crowd.
OK, EJ. You keep living the dream, pal. And if you need some help figuring out how to tie your shoes, this is how I feel about it. Don’t ask. Just get slip-ons.
