Live from La Farine: As I wrote, moderate Republicans have abandoned the claim that President Obama stiffed them and ran a partisan administration. Instead, they now say that Obama wanted to negotiate with Republicans, but that Pelosi and Reid, somehow, would not let him do so. Thus it remains very interesting that Ron Fournier continues to cling to the 2009-2011 "Obama won't let us into the room, won't listen to" Republican talking point. And it is also interesting that Ron Fournier claims that Bill Clinton began his second term "with standing to convert campaign promises into results":
Idiocy Upon Idiocy: "Of course Ron Fournier would weigh in on the New York Times...**:
...‘the proper way for Democrats to win the presidency is to appeal to conservative white voters in Arkansas and West Virginia’ article by not only saying that it was a good article but by saying that there’s a ‘right’ way to win and a ‘wrong’ way to win, and of course appealing to your base, i.e., people who aren’t white, is the ‘wrong’ way to win. He writes, ‘My problem with this approach is that it works only until Election Day, when a polarizing, opportunistic candidate assumes the presidency with no standing to convert campaign promises into results.’
Right, because if Hillary can somehow appeal to those Arkansas voters and 1996 comes back into existence in 2016, the Republicans will totally lower their guard. We all know how accommodating those Republicans were to Bill Clinton in his 2nd term after all. I mean really, what impeachment? I don’t remember that. I only remember a bipartisan love fest...
