Bipartisanship, Like Racism, Is a One-Way Street to Liberals
Examiner.com ^ | 02/25/10 | Rob Binsrick

Last night I was reading an online article from Katrina Vanden Heuvel on The Nation website in which she blamed the Republicans for the lack of bipartisanship in Washington these days. As Vanden Heuvel put it, when it comes to bipartisanship the “Republicans aren’t playing.”

That is a similar analysis being put forward by a number of other liberal columnists, commentators and politicians. Much of that is based on the fact that the Republicans in Congress have shown great solidarity in opposing the extreme left-wing policy proposals that have been introduced by Barack Obama and the Congressional Democrats.

Liberalism is institutionalized immaturity.

Maturity means the heavy reliance on logic and responsibility over feeling and emotions and that is what separates Liberals from Conservatives.

When Conservatives accept the fact that they are dealing with developmentally-challenged opponents who cannot rise above name calling, lying, cheating any more than a 3 year old can, they will understand what they are dealing with...and maybe, just maybe, develop a strategy for achieving victory over the liberal mindset.

Conservatives must appeal to Liberals like parents to children. We must not negotiate...we must keep driving home the importance of logic and reason over emotion and the blind clinging to specious ideas.

Developing campaign strategy to paint Republicans as ‘do nothing’. I prefer politicians to do nothing, myself :)

That's because to the Democrats / "liberals" / socialists / big-government-proponents / fascists ... "bipartisanship" really means "concede to our idea and do things our way."

No thank you. In fact, h*ll no!

It’s funny, because on the senate vote, every single democrat voted the same way. Hardly bi-partisan.

Or looking at it another way, on the house side, the votes AGAINST the bill were bipartisan, with dozens of democrats joining the republicans.

The vote FOR healthcare was essentially a partisan vote, with only a single republican voting with the democrats.

There is strong bipartisan OPPOSITION to the bill.
