Sunday Beltway Villagers Cry: Obama Is Mean To Republicans

Face The Nation had an interesting "power panel round table" where bipartisanship ruled the day and all the parties involved could agree on one thing for sure: President Obama is being a real meanie to Republicans. Bob Woodward, Dee Dee Myers, Peggy Noonan and Condoleezza Rice all made the same vapid points to Bob Schieffer. See, all this obstructionism by the Republicans ever since Obama moved into the Oval Office has never been about them. It's all about the mean and nasty Obama is not being sensitive to their needs.

Poor, Poor, little ol' Republicans, Big mean old President Obama will not let the little GOP children play and cause trouble.

3. It has been the growing meme for over a month now

that it is his fault the republicans are being jackasses.

Scarborough is a leader on this, constantly pushing the thing where he has to have them over to the white house.

This morning once again, in all their insular BS, he goes on about how the President "can't take it personal" while rationalizing the republicans being jackasses because their feelings are hurt.

And, of course, everyone around him obediently nods and chimes in.

4. It's hilarious. The Republican leadership plots his downfall on INAUGURATION NIGHT and they

say that President Obama is the problem?!?

Yeah, right.

6. I know, right!



They're just sad that they failed and can't deal with it without lashing out at President Obama and taking responsibility for their failures:

Over the past 4 years, they failed:

1. To stop the stimulus from passing
2. To stop health care reform ("Obamacare") from passing
3. To win the Senate in 2010
4. To repeal health care reform
5. To have health care reform declared unconstitutional
6. To pass any legislation that would actually create JOBS
7. To cut Social Security and Medicare
8. To completely wreck the economy (i.e. Debt Ceiling)
9. To win the WH in 2012
10. To win the Senate in 2012

8. It defies any reason

he has bent over backwards trying to work with these clowns, and no matter what he does they want more.

He spent nearly a year trying to get the three R senators to work with them on what turned out to be what the REPUBLICANS put forward for HCR in the early 90s, and they punked him at the end.

They have uniformly opposed him on EVERYTHING from day one, but it is his fault.

10. The baggers will settle for nothing less than complete capitulation to all their demands, and I am

so glad that President Obama is not caving in to their blackmail. I sincerely hope he keeps it up. Although, I am sure the Republicans will scream and squawk about how "arrogant" Obama is, which is code for "uppity". Screw them.

11. It's amazing to me how these bullies suddenly go weak in the knees, pee in their pants and start

whining like babies when they face tough opposition.

It's a real case of being able to dish it out but not being able to take it...not one bit it!

13. AM radio

has LONG done this to them.

It is a real nice thing, being a TRUE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE.

You get to rail on anyone and anybody at any time in any way, go on and on about personal responsibility for OTHERS, but you get to play the victim whenever personal responsibility comes knocking at your door.

Sweet gig.

7. Charles Pierce skewers the Sunday morning gabfest precisely, as he always does

Let us begin with Bob (The Watergate Replacement Replicant) Woodward, who told Schieffer that Obama declines to work and play well with the feral children and is thus spitting on the grave of the Venerable Katie Graham, the Patron Saint Of Social Climbing.
...
So the president, who has been called stupid, lazy, a Kenyan, un-American, and every other synonym for "uppity" that ever occurred to Bull Connor, and of whom his legislative opponents have said quite openly that their goal was to wreck his agenda, has been engaged so far in "sticking his finger" in the eye of his political opposition. I swear to Christ, listening to Woodward, I'm starting to believe Nixon was framed. Following with her own bucket of bushwah was professional Clinton apologist Dee Dee Myers, who yearned for the golden era when the Republicans were investigating blowjobs and the Democratic president was knuckling welfare moms.
...
The thoroughness with which the lunatic conservative war against Bill Clinton has been shoved down the memory hole is truly remarkable. After all, it was the template for the lunatic conservative war against the current president. There were four years of having Washington politicians and the courtier press believe every tall tale that came out of every fish camp in Arkansas. There was an economic plan that didn't garner a single Republican vote. There was a government shutdown. There was a nearly two-year pursuit of the president's penis all around the Beltway, led in the main by adulterous hypocrites like N. Leroy Gingrich, Definer Of Civilization's Rules And Leader (Perhaps) Of The Civilizing Forces. There was, in fact, the destruction of Gingrich's political career. And Myers looks back on that time as a model for what she wants to be happening now because Gingrich and Clinton put their respective adulteries aside long enough to pass a welfare "reform" bill that was punitive enough to get Clintion re-elected? We need better Democrats here. But this discussion of A World That Can Never Be would not be complete until we heard from the Magic Dolphin Queen, who has been living in the higher realms of fairy farts since half-past a gimlet in 1986.
...
There are three policy-making institutions in the federal government. The Democrats control two of them. More people voted for the Democratic presidential candidate than for his Republican rival, and that was only a couple of months ago. More Democrats got elected to the Senate. More people voted for Democratic candidates for the House than voted for Republican candidates for the House. This is not "a fifty-fifty country" unless you divide by the square root of VAT 69 and then multiply by the cosine of Pi in the sky. And can we at least acknowledge, if we're going to be talking about "the country." that the president's approval has gone nowhere but up since he started being a little less concerned with Republican fee-fees.

Condoleezza Rice said something, too, but since it didn't include the phrase, "I am sorry for having been the most incompetent National Security Advisor in history," I paid it no mind.

14. Mean to the Rs??? What planet have they been on?? Constant obstructionism and

constant "no" to anything and everything he brings up -- even when some of the ideas were originally by Rs.
Signs, Slogans, birthers, truthers, teabaggers, etc. and he is the mean one?? I think Romneysia is contagious.
