Obama’s Partisanship Disappoints

with 3 comments

John McCain today called Barrack Obama out today saying the economic stimulus plan was “a bad beginning,” out of step with the vow of bipartisanship both men made after Obama beat out the Republican presidential nominee for the White House in November. His BFF Lindsey Graham was even more blunt saying, “If this is going to be bipartisanship, the country’s screwed.”

Obviously, these are harsh words for a senator to utter about a sitting President, but consider that nobody is more hurt than Republicans. We really felt that Obama was somebody we could work with superficially and the stimulus package shows us that Obama isn’t really any different than any other Democrat. When Bill Clinton was in power we expected this sort of thing, but to have a President that we praised for being bipartisan pass a bill that we lauded for being very reasonable in such a partisan manner with only limited input from us is a low blow.  He even started trying to seduce our governors in the ultimate partisan low blow.  They’re our governors, not yours.

We need a President like George Bush who was “a uniter, not a divider”.  Obama’s managed to turn this whole situation critical during a time of economic crisis if there were a time of economic crisis, which I’m still not sure about.  With this kind of my way or the highway attitude, no wonder so many Republicans such as myself want Obama to fail.  We know we can’t work with such a partisan hack in the White House.  However, if Obama can manage to take a bill that we liked large parts of and that so many Republican governors supported and turn that into a classic example of partisanship, what will happen when he is faced with passing a bill that we don’t like.
