The Most Patriotic Man in America

They say that dissent is the truest form of patriotism, and by “they” I mean every liberal for the past eight years who would put that bumper sticker next to their “Bush is a War Criminal” one. So taking these progressives at their word, for the next four years it would appear that Rush Limbaugh is the most patriotic man in America.

And apparently, since George Bush isn’t around to rally the troops against, President Obama has apparently decided to make Rush Limbaugh the new boogie man. Obama met recently with the Republican leadership to discuss the 2009 Fiscal Suicide Plan, and this report of the meeting found its way to reporters:

President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.

“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

One White House official confirmed the comment but said he was simply trying to make a larger point about bipartisan efforts.

Here’s what I don’t get, other than the fact that our most recent candidate is one who DIDN’T listen to Rush…and we all see how that turned out. Obama doesn’t need the Republicans to get FSA09 passed. There are enough D’s in the House and Senate for it to pass without a single Republican vote. If the Democrat party believes that spending $1 TRILLON is the way to jump start the economy, than so be it. Grow some testicles and stand on your convictions. Vote. It could pass today in the senate 59-41.

But they don’t want that. Instead they want to guilt Republicans to vote with them to give them “cover” with the voters if and when this thing goes down in flames, and guilt them with “bi-partisanship.” And of course they’ll have the media to back them up. You see when a Democrat takes a principled stance, they’re being true to their convictions. When a Republican takes a principles stance - as they should be doing against the Fiscal Suicide Act - then they’re being divisive. They aren’t acting bi-partisan.

There are two ways to define bi-partisanship.

As defined by the American people - both parties working together to craft the best legislation they can, and meeting somewhere in the middle to do so.

As defined by NBC News and friends - Republicans bending over and doing whatever the Democrats want.

Your definition of bi-partisanship is so accurate!
