Obama’s Problem? ‘Being So Bipartisan’!

Posted on | April 25, 2012 | 10 Comments

Last night, as for nearly every night in recent months, I was struggling to find an answer to the question that has been haunting so many Americans: Where did President Obama go wrong?

I mean, Peggy Joseph said he was going to make her mortage payments and everything, and David Brooks promised — based on a careful examination of Obama’s pants creases — that this man had the perfect temperament for the job. Some had said he ranked up there with the greatest of all time. And yet, strangely enough, so many of my fellow Americans seem to have been disappointed in his presidency.

This has perplexed me for weeks on end, until last night, when I saw this quote at The Lonely Conservative

“[P]art of the problem with the president was by being so bipartisan and trying to not, you know, try to be one country about everything, he let his opponents set him up.”

Yes! That’s it exactly! And if there is anyone in America who knows all about being bipartisan, it’s Van Jones:

    I’m sure that’s on video somewhere or at least could be in a matter of hours.

    And what’s really scary is that there are many who would agree with what Van Jones said.

    Bi-partisan?  Set up by his opponents? 

    If only the GOP leadership was that smart Van!

    If Van Jones was a member of the LSM, that statement right there would win PJM’s new “Duranty Prize” for this year the first day it’s been announced.

    Yeah, nothing says bipartisanship like “I won.”

    Jones is a psycho commie.  He would be a black American version of Che Guevara, but he lacks the stomach for the wet work.

     Jones would beg for his life if his car broke down in a white working class neighborhood in broad daylight.
