When asked directly how his Republican Party can reconcile its "Feckless Weakling" Obama lie with its "Brutal Despot" Obama lie, what were nationally syndicated former Bush Administration Employee Michael Gerson's final broadcast teevee words of 2014?
I don't know, but there are some divisions on the Left too! The Warren anti-Wall Street wing could play out in this part as well. Both sides have their own internal divisions.
Because among our Beltway Overlords, there is only one story. sacred and eternal.
Think I'm kidding?
Here are Tim Russert and Tom Daschel on Meet the Press exactly ten years ago, when we were hip deep in open, active, running, Republican atrocities:
MR. RUSSERT: But, Senator Daschle, isn't that a growing problem? If the House districts are safe seats, where out of the 435 seats, 400 members don't really have to worry about a general election. They can stay in there as long as they want, but they're very worried about a primary in their own party because it's a safe Democratic seat or a safe Republican seat. And so they really do toe the party line, ideologically, philosophically, and are afraid to work out issues in a bipartisan way.
SEN. DASCHLE: Well, I think that there's more of that problem today than any time that I've been in the Senate, Tim. I think that you're right. The parties and the pressures politically tend to nudge, and sometimes move even more aggressively, people in the opposite direction. Rather than towards the center, they move to the far left and the far right. And that then creates the chasm that Don was talking about earlier. Instead, I think what you've got to do is look for what I'd like to call the politics of common ground, finding ways with which to find the center once again...
