Can anybody here remind us of a time when Democrats fought hard PUBLICLY with Obama on anything he was pushing agenda-wise? Or a time when Democrats fought hard and PUBLICLY against fellow Democrats on any bills, any actions, anything there was disagreement on?
I see only Republicans doing this…constantly. Plenty. Some go on CNN to air their grievances, you know that. It’s very damaging, yet I like that the tent is big and I believe it’s good to toss subjects around to find the best solution. IN PRIVATE. It seems to me that Republicans always look in deep disarray, as if they hate each other, as if they don’t agree with the basic Republican/Conservative agenda.
Please tell me when Democrats have done the same thing…………I think this is an important point.
EXAMPLE (I heard after writing this post yesterday): Now the Republicans are blasting their leadership for not giving them time to READ THE SPENDING BILL. Do you remember anybody on the Dem side blasting Pelosi for not allowing anybody time to read the HEALTHCARE BILL?!
THE MAIN PROBLEM WITH THIS BICKERING IN PUBLIC IS IT GIVES THE LEFTISTS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO POUNCE ON THEM AND IT COULD MAKE THOSE COMING TO THE CONSERVATIVE SIDE A LITTLE GUN SHY “WHY CAN’T THEY GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER? IF HE HATES HIM, I PROBABLY SHOULD, TOO!”
By the way, ON this subject; I believe smoke-filled rooms in Congress are highly underrated. I believe it was in smoke-filled rooms, in PRIVATE discussions out of chambers, no media, were where people like Tip O’Neil and Reagan HASHED THINGS OUT. In PRIVATE. Pass the cigars…have some brandy. TALK. Get along; put AMERICANS FIRST.
