Carney: Obama sees regrettable level of hyperpartisanship in Washington
By Amie Parnes - 01/23/12 01:03 PM ET
Even though he promised to bridge partisanship before coming into office, President Obama accepts that there is still a regrettable level of hyperpartisanship, White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Monday.
Carney said there were instances in which the tone on Pennsylvania Avenue got in the way of moving forward.
But that's not an excuse to stop trying, Carney said.
The spokesman said Obama believes there's still an opportunity to work with Congress to accomplish big things.
Carney used an example of the GOP's persistent call last year to release Obama's birth certificate as a gratuitously stupid side show.
Our challenges are too big to be dragged down by these kinds of things, he said.
He rejects the idea that nothing can get done in an election year," Carney said, adding that the president will "very much call for action" in tomorrow's State of the Union address.
Gee Obama. I wonder who caused that?
The Kenyan lizard and his mau mau occupier scum minions have ratcheted up class warfare rhetoric to a peak, and the lizard deplores the level of partisanship in DC. Classic.
Our founding fathers set up a system to STOP folks from moving forward quickly. God bless 'em. Dictatorships move fast. Thugs keep things moving at whatever speed they can bully others into following. We move slowly as protection against the above types...
Hyper? HYPER? I want to see lightspeed partizanship,
Trans-Warp partizanship! Warp factor 5 Mr. Bonior.
Aye-aye Captain Gingrich.
Now broadcast this to all democrat units...
“All your base are belong to us,
no chance survive make your time.
You set yourself up the bomb.
For great Justice!”
The democrat idea of partisanship is YOU doing
what THEY want!
How's that for bipartisanship?
I honestly believe that in his mind Obama thinks he is truly bi-partisan.
The key to a successful imposition of dictatorship by popular choice is defining all organized opposition as radical and dangerous.
I’ll be turning 60 this year and have been following and participating in politics since the mafia stole the 1960 election for JFK - I wore a Goldwater button at the age of twelve and have never seen things degenerated to this level.
This childish, hateful usurper in the White House must go - he and his cabal of criminals.
I’m still clinging to my bible (praying daily too) and we just made a purchase at Cabelas.
Yep. Just as long as the other side caves.
Snow shoes? I hope I NEVER need those. Still hoping for more global warming.
Deal with it Chirpy.. you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Half the reason IMO of majorities in both houses is so we can prosecute these bastards.. and they know it, believe me. God willing, it’s coming.. and I can’t wait for the perp walks.
Lemme' att'em!! Let's dance round and round!!
I wonder how many times Obama poked a hornet’s nest when he was young and then cried about getting stung!
I regret it too, Hussein. So why don’t you GTF out.
Carney and Obama can P...O...
Remember? “I won”!
