I found this in the DUmmy thread over at Conservative Underground. In the eyes of this moonbat, bipartisanship cooperation means meeting the Democrats “halfway” at 70-30, meaning 70% what the Dems want and 30% what Republicans want. When people seriously think that is the case, there is real problem. Here is the original post, though vulgarities have been edited for this site:
The Republicans need to understand what bipartisanship means in the Age of Obama.

It’s not the middle. The American people have rebuked the Republican ideology in two elections now and don’t want to go back to it for the foreseeable future. So when Eric Cantor and others talk about bipartisanship, they must realize the ideological shift that accompanied this country with the election of the Democrats in 2006 and Pres. Obama in 2008.
That means bipartisanship begins left of center. Obama’s stimuls is what the American people voted for, not the same old failed policies of the Bush era. If they want to compromise with Pres. Obama, they have got to realize that compromise comes on his terms, not theirs. That’s what the American people want and that’s what they’re going to get, no matter how much Republicans complain.
So sorry, Mr. Cantor, bipartisanship means you actually have to meet the President at no worse than 70-30, because that’s the political climate facing this country. If you can’t accept that, then maybe you should find out why the American people continue to reject Republican ideals and fix it to the point where you can get back into power.
And if you can’t do that, then just sit down and shut the f*** up.
Here’s another “open-minded” liberal:
1. They have two options
1. Negotiate from a position of weakness and get whatever they can scratch out
2. Be shut out of the process altogether.
That’s one of my favorite hypocracies fromt he left; that they are the “open-minded” political. Their open-mindedness stops at the party line. Here’s yet another:
4. And that’s why the Republicans are out of power.
They’re tone deaf, I swear.
Americans have buried Reagan and all he stood for with the election of Barack Obama.
Maybe that’s it. Maybe they can’t get over that Obama killed their hero.
haha, I love it!
That would make more sense if the election results were split 70/30, but thankfully they were not. Bipartisan cooperation is an equal effort on both sides, or at least something a lot closer than 70/30. I’m sure that in a few years when Republicans are back in power as the Democrats are now these people’s views will be much, much different.
