Obama on MTP:'Let's just say it: The Republicans are the problem'

by Greg Dworkin

That was the title of a now-famous essay by Thomas Mann and Norm Ornstein:

Let's just say it: The Republicans are the problem

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

When one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country’s challenges.

Here is President Obama on Meet the Press today, taped Saturday:

Mr. Obama told host David Gregory that "the only thing I would caution against…is I think this notion of,'Well, both sides are just kind of unwilling to cooperate.' And that's just not true. I mean if you look at the facts, what you have is a situation here where the Democratic Party, warts and all, and certain me, warts and all, have consistently done our best to try to put country first."

That the standoff persists, he said, "is an indication of how far certain factions inside the Republican Party have gone where they can't even accept what used to be considered centrist, mainstream positions on these issues."

Maybe it is time to enter the Last Phase and stop the abuse. You would not want God to see who you are just before you "Go to the Light"!

Do not fear that YOUR Eternity will be Horrific!

Lemme repeat what I have tried to tell you defectives for 6 months.

President Romney 54%

But, please feel free to keep posting your ignorant recitations. Nobody realizes that the only poll that matters is the one I keep citing for 11/6/2012..
