It happens every so often. I really don’t care about any of the inter-party bickering that’s going on right now. I don’t care whether President Obama loves America or not, whether Rudy Giuliani is vile for having raised the question, or whether Republicans should disavow Giuliani’s remarks. I don’t care whether President Obama is a crypto-Muslim. I don’t care if Scott Walker is cowardly for not giving plain answers to “gotcha” questions. Or even not “gotcha” questions. I just don’t care.
I do care about the policies that the president and the Congressional Republican leadership are putting forward all of which I think are pretty insipid. Keep in mind, for example, that President Obama’s White House has never produced a plan which even they claim would result in full employment, only a fraction of that. Basically, both sides are trying to paint themselves as different while really being very much alike, adhering to the prevailing Washington wisdom even when the prevailing Washington wisdom is strongly opposed by most Americans.
Glad I’m not the only one.
The political “conversation” in this country, such as it is, depresses me.
This is not bickering. It’s not a conversation. There’s nothing between parties. It’s one party’s political hopefuls trying to rally the base by pushing Pavlovian buttons. That’s all. This has nothing to do with Obama.
You guys wish to believe there are two participants in this exchange only because of politics.
When Rudy Giuliani blows a gasket and Obama functionaries jump all over him how it it not bickering?
Whatever it is, I don’t care. I have never voted for Giuliani for anything and never will.
It’s bickering to anyone uninterested in keeping score.
Most dem functionaries would be happy to have Rudy continue to speak his mind around Walker and Jeb Bush, and maybe throw in an evolution debate. No one is angry or unhappy about Rudy on the dem side.

What I’ve been saying lately. And what Steve Libertarian used to say. (I can’t remember his last name! Started with ‘P’, mabye, or ‘J’?)
Verdon! That was it! Maybe….
Tanks for the memories.
I have been inundated by my Tea Party group about this nonsense. I told them i don’t care and I think it is pathetic. I also find it hard to care about the 2016 election. Much too early.
