Rachael Maddow made a significant point about President Obama on her TRM Show, on MSNBC show last night in comments about the Democratic debates. Hillary Clinton listed the enemies she is most proud to have, “in addition to the NRA, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the Iranians; probably the Republicans”. Rachael made the pointed out that this will be one of the biggest differences between her and the Obama administration. I was startled by her remarks until she explained, then what she said made perfect sense. In my opinion, President Obama has made fewer mistakes than any president we have ever had. However, Rachael pointed out his one big fault has been his unrelenting obsession with trying to compromise with congressional Republicans. Not only have they refused to compromise but also they have used his obsession with him. She listed several instances substantiated with video tapes where this has been the case. Even when he promoted their ideas, they turned their backs on him. There can be no question that I am an unabashed supporter of this president and his policies. I had supported his efforts to compromise without questioning as to why he kept trying when they clearly refused to cooperate. Call it a flip-flop on my part if you like, but I agree with Rachael Maddow, the President made a mistake. Not only was it a mistake, but it was a costly one. The only people a person can compromise with are reasonable people. I don’t think any thinking person in the United States thinks the Republicans elected to Congress, reasonable people. I would like to see the results of a poll of Republicans asking them if they are the ones that voted for their member of Congress. I am sure a great majority would deny the fact that they voted. The Tea Party is a destructive element in government and will continue to be as we heard said by the political pundits who analyzed the difference between the Republican candidates and the Democratic debates. Of course, the tragedy is that the Republican has been able to corrupt our electoral system as much as they have been able to do even with the checks and balances we have in place. They include the Supreme Court, the Federal Government, states governments, and even local governments done to an including school boards. The major motive is power for the sake of power but relates to all the evils counter to society. One of my favorite stories is the liberal who walks into a bar and becomes more and more conservatives with the more and more he drinks until he reduces himself to bestial instincts related to eating, fighting, and sex. The Republican Party is heading in that direction at least they always seem to want to fight a war somewhere and is constantly screwing everyone. URL: Comments Invited and not moderated
