“Our leaders in Washington seem incapable of working together in a practical, commonsense way,” Obama said in a video posted on his Web site. “Politics has become so bitter and partisan, so gummed up by money and influence, that we can’t tackle the big problems that demand solutions. And that’s what we have to change first.”
Remind you of anyone? Like, oh, Lieberman.
Listen, you triangulating, do-nothing, gasbag… there is no need for you to adopt the GOP talking points and DC punditocracy formulations of “reality” in order to be accepted.
No one likes a triangulator. Except perhaps Clinton, Bill… and his presidency was an ahistorical aberration… and you’ll also remember that that particular triangulator was despised by the DC ruling class.
So don’t excuse the rabid GOP destruction of our governance as “partisanship” that applies equally to both Dems and Repubs… use your parliamentary power. Don’t talk about the challenges to big problems that demand solutions… solve them.
