President Obama turned up on NBC’s “Meet the Press” for the first time since the passage of ObamaCare, and gave exactly the performance that every veteran Obama-watcher would have expected: a bitter, intransigent partisan claiming to be the only non-partisan, non-ideological participant in the “fiscal cliff” drama. “I’m not driven by some ideological agenda – I’m a pretty practical guy,” he explicitly stated, offering his past four years in office as evidence.
It’s too bad “Meet the Press” doesn’t have a laugh track. Obama’s interviewer, David Gregory, was willing to flagrantly violate D.C. gun laws to beat up on NRA executive Wayne LaPierre, but when President Obama takes the stage to drop insane howlers like that, America’s top outlaw journalist just sits quietly and nods. In truth, nothing about Obama’s record in office, re-election campaign, or fiscal cliff policy has been even slightly non-partisan or non-ideological. This kind of posturing gives partisanship and ideology a bad name – voters do band together into parties and vote for candidates based upon their campaign promises, after all. Whether or not either position is correct, a Republican’s ideological commitment to low taxes is no moreillegitimate than Barack Obama’s stern ideological commitment to raising them.
Right .... and, pigs fly! Which I suppose in Obama voters minds, they do!
Hobbes as we know that is a flat-out lie. He is ONLY driven by his ideology!
Exactly! Why Obama's nose isn't as long, as his ears are big, is amazing!
Does anyone actually believe this?
I certainly hope not, Watchman. But, I guess, idiots will. And, sadly, there are a lot of them out there ... just look at the last election.
Perhaps he is not being "driven" by the ideology. Perhaps he is "driving" it. Perhaps he is funding the Nascar version of the ideology that someone else is driving. Maybe the word "driving" he thinks means golf since that is all he does, and he gets quite confused.
You see? It all depends on what the definition of the word "is" is.
RN, You crack me up!! LOL!
