Video: Republican “Bipartisanship” Means “Democrats coming to the Republican point of view”


That’s right, according to Tea Partier Richard Mourdock, who defeated Sen. Dick Lugar yesterday in the Indiana Republican primary, “bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view.” Uh, can we say “unclear on the concept?” Or, maybe these people are VERY clear on the concept, which is that they want a country that has no dissenting views to their radical right-wing, extremist ideology (e.g., shut down Planned Parenthood, outlaw abortion even in cases of incest or rape, ban gay marriage and civil unions, slash taxes for wealthy individuals and corporations, destroy Medicare and Social Security, punish the poor, etc, etc.)? Bottom line: we have to beat these people in November, or this country is screwed. Any further questions? Good, didn’t think so, now get to work!

    Another example of the fact that Republicans have no actual respect for democracy.

    If a Republican wins, all laws passed are just and valid and everyone should obey them.

    If a Democrat wins, everyone should be free to pick and choose which laws to obey and which to ignore/repeal/blah blah.

    If a Republican wins, they have a mandate from god and all Democrats should follow their wishes.

    If a Democrat wins, the Democrats should compromise with Republicans since that’s the fair way to do things.
