Where Did All the Bipartisanship Go?
Joe Gandelman mourns the loss of civility
in politics and remembers the time, from about 2001 to 2008, when the party out of power did not engage in petty politics, but put their shoulders to the wheel and helped the president.
The present frenzy suggests that the seeds are now being sowed for a mega-polarized America that could be almost ungovernable in the 21st century if this trend continues unabated.
If Republicans and conservatives make the very legitimacy of Obama his patriotism — even the safety of allowing little kids listen to him tell them to stay in school and think about helping their community — the issue, and link his name to Hitler and/or Nazism, precisely how do they think Democrats and the left will respond next time a GOPer is in power?
The same way they did the last time a GOPer was in power; linking his name to Hitler and/or Nazism. I mean, seriously, Joe, were you stoned the least 8 years?
