Repeatedly, throughout the 2008 campaign, I scoffed and mocked Obama's call for bipartisanship in Washington. After the GOP stuck it to progressives for 14 years my opinion was "who cares about conservatives?" - let them scramble for progressing their agenda just as progressives have had to scramble.
And since Obama's election the right wing has done nothing in the way of constructive efforts to lift this country out of its recession. When the pack of barking right wing dogs are following someone like Rush Limbaugh, the dearth of constructive ideas is evident.
The right is bankrupt. I say let's leave them in that state. No bailout - no helping hand. Screw 'em - just as they've screwed working-class Americans.
The barking dogs made this bed of partisanship - and they rolled in it and enjoyed it to the hilt when they were in power. I say they made this bed, now let them lie in it.
We don't need them to move this country forward, and dragging them along in an effort achieve Obama's promise of bipartisanship is akin to taking a screaming, fit-throwing 12 year-old on a vacation. Who needs it?
Leave them behind with Grandma and cookies, and let's move this country forward.
