"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

AP Article Pushes Obama's Bipartisanship Lie

Check out this article by the AP, "Obama bipartisanship push has mixed success." Can you believe this is a headline?

Well, let's see... How has Obama been bipartisan?

1) By attacking conservative commentators like Rush Limbaugh, and having White House staff personally call or call out (like Kramer-- hardly a conservative) media and reporters who step out of line.

2) By publicly dismissing conservative points of view as old-fashioned and irrelevant.

3) By pushing a "stimulus" bill through Congress that was written exclusively by Democrats, and is largely nothing more than political payoff to Democratic and Left supporters (the article suggests this is a bipartisan victory due to the three Republican senators who voted for it).

4) By continuing to push through a partisan budget that does nothing but increase deficit spending into the trillions... while ignoring his own pick for commerce secretary's, Republican Senator Judd Gregg outspoken opposition to the proposal.

5) By appointing Rahm Emmanuel "known as a brass-knuckles partisan," as White House chief of staff.

6) By continuing to publicly blame every problem under the sun and any that could possibly ever arise on George Bush.

7) By calculatingly releasing the "torture memos" and then nonsensically threatening to prosecute Republican legal council over their contents.

8) By releasing a DHS report that paints anyone who believes in Federalism, abortion, or is a vet as potential right-wing, extremist terrorists.

But it's the Republicans' fault for not being bipartisan. "'You can open up your door, extend your hand and invite people in, but if they don't want to come, you can't drag them,' said David Axelrod, a senior Obama adviser. 'That doesn't mean we're not going to keep trying.'"

Oh, how noble... continuing to try the come in, sit down, shut up, and believe in all that I do version of bipartisanship... Real cute.

The most annoying aspect of this AP article is the continued push to present Obama as a centrist. The AP and the Obama-media seem to be operating under the assumption that if you tell a lie enough it'll start to become true.
