How can anyone discount the vindictiveness and contempt that this administration is now showing towards the American people? The government shutdown is not the first time that this is been demonstrated. President Barack Obama wants to make any interaction with the government during the shutdown as painful as possible. And for what reason?
Barack Obama was supposed to be the president who bridged the differences in American life. In 2008 he pledged to reach across the aisle and work with Republicans. Has he? Not too often. The Obama administration is supposed to be so liberal that they are accommodating to all groups that had been ridiculed and persecuted in the past. But Republicans are different story. Anytime there's a Republican in the mix, we know that the rhetoric of intolerance will be coming. Bipartisanship has never been demonstrated. The president doesn't seem to know or want to know how to work with people of other party. He just doesn't want to be opposition, he wants to eliminate it. He wants Republicans to go and be gone.
Now that our latest budget and fiscal crisis is behind us nationally, the Democrats are taking victory laps believing that they have completely humiliated Republicans, conservatives, and anybody else they consider to be opposition. So, let's do a little follow-up. Let's see if the all-powerful, all-knowing, complete package Democrats have answers now to questions previously unanswered:
Whatever happened to Benghazi? Are we ever do get answers about why there was such a lapse in security in Libya? Will we ever find out why the talking points were so stupid that were repeated so many times to the American people? And why weren't the American people stupid enough to take their answers without question? Americans seem to be quite gullible about other things such as Obamacare.
