So, the newly chastened, humbled, introspective, reflective President Obama will hold hyped-up meetings with GOP and Democrat leaders in a few weeks to show his commitment to Common Ground.
And the MSM will lap it up as evidence of Obama’s post-election maturity.
What a steaming load of you-know-what.
Obama has held plenty of make-believe Kumbaya sessions with Republicans — after which, he turned around and rammed his partisan legislative boondoggles and government expansions down our throats anyway.
Go back and refresh your memories of the blowhard-a-thon at Blair House in February 2010 on Obamacare.
Or the barrel-of-monkeys fiscal responsibility suck-up summit in February 2009:
It was nauseating.
Republicans including John McCain and Eric Cantor joined Democrat tax cheat Charlie Rangel and spendocrat Henry Waxman, along with Obama corrupto-cronies such as the SEIU’s Andy Stern in a boot-licking session with Dear Leader.
He gathered them all in a press conference setting and called on them as if they were journalistic stenographers.
Obama paid lip service to bipartisanship. They paid lip service to bipartisanship. Obama declared the need to fix health care. They declared the need to fix health care. Obama said we had budget problems. They nodded their heads and bemoaned our budget problems.
I have etched in mind one of the most cringe-inducing moments of that summit. It starred House GOP Whip Eric Cantor, who is now in the running for House Majority Leader.
If this is the kind of olive branch-swallowing “leadership” he will bring to the job, God help us all:
White House says the upcoming session “is not just going to be a photo-op.” We know. It’ll be a four-hour, ego-stroking bull session to boot.blog comments powered by Disqus
