George Will: Obama sparks ‘hyper partisanship’ with progressivism, has no second term agenda
Daily Caller ^ | October 13, 2013 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 10/13/2013 1:27:18 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Washington Post columnist George Will suggested on “Fox News Sunday” placed blame for “hyper partisanship” that plagues Washington, D.C. on President Barack Obama’s progressive, polarizing politics.

Moderator Chris Wallace at suggested the tense atmosphere could either be the result of gerrymandering or an aspect of American culture. Will disagreed, pointing to Obama as the source.

“It’s not that simple,” Will replied. “The fact is, we have a very polarizing president. I’m not criticizing him for this. He’s a progressive. He exists to enlarge the power of government as an engine of the redistribution wealth and opportunity. That’s his agenda. He’s not interested in a grand bargain. He’s not interested in compromising. He doesn’t think he needs to.”

Will asked what the president wanted to accomplish during the remainder of his second term, which the media often ignore in favor of highlighting the in-fighting within the GOP.

“For all the talk about the Republican Party’s dysfunction, would someone tell me what the president’s second term agenda is?” he continued. “We’re in nine months. What is it, immigration? It’s not going to happen. Gun control? What is this man’s agenda for the remaining three-and-a-half years of his term?”

To do as much permanent damage to the United States as he can.

His second term agenda is to get a third term. He’s having so much fun. He’s not going anywhere.

Will is apparently suffering from some form of age related dementia.

Obozo’s agenda has been the unchanged from day one: To drag America into turd world hellhole status as quickly and deeply as possible.

Please. I recall goofball leftists saying the same thing about GWB, that he was going to declare martial law, or announce we were too involved in the war against terror for him to leave after two terms. Obama won’t get a third term, he barely got his second. But he WILL hyper-amp up his socialist/fascist program in his time remaining, and THAT’S what we should be concerned about.

"To do as much permanent damage to the United States as he can."

You got it. Everything Obama does is designed to bring the US down. His hatred for this country, its values and everything it has ever done is demonstrated each day and half the country can't see beyond his honeyed words.

I disagree. I think Obama has a pretty clear set of goals for his second term:
* Destroy the GOP-e
* Bankrupt the country
* Set the stage for Hillary to succeed him
* Set the stage for Hillary to move toward single-payer system
* Make the Congressional races like the parliament races in the UK - run on how many more unobtainable healthcare benefits you can falsely promise in a lame attempt to buy votes

Actually, George’s watch has been right FOUR times this week. Check out his column on JFK, Oswald, and how liberals became “scolds”. A good one:

I just looked up “Alinskyite” and “Maoist” in my thesaurus and didn't find the word “progressive” listed as a synonym for either of them.I though Will always promoted himself as a wordsmith.

As I stated earlier on another thread, I believe George Will has been freed from the shackles of having been on a very liberal leaning show on ABC (This Week), and is now much more able to express his more conservative beliefs without repercussion. I think you will see a continued conservative vocalization by George Will now that he has been liberated in his own mind to speak his own mind. I expect he will follow in the same vein in the future.

He sure doesn’t seem comfortable in the shout- and slug-fests that pass for “discussion” on these shows.

What I said was not just political rhetoric. There's been a trend by this President that one would have to be blind to see. What I do not recall Bush saying is that he wanted to fundamentally transform America.

Sorry, I disagree with your naivety

Will is what I would call a “Traditionalist.” He has his occasionally liberal leanings, but they are well within the American tradition. I’ve actually been thinking that the term “Conservative” has been so maligned by the Left, that we should re-brand as “Traditionalist.” Even Americans on the left respect tradition, whether it be in their family or the nation as a whole.
