I was watching the State of the Union address, and I heard Obama tell the world that we must be bi-partisan, and live as one. -Not as Democrats and Republicans, or any other polar opposite that you could throw into the mix. (and there are tons...)
After I thought to myself, "That will never happen..." a thought came over me as to WHY this would never happen, and that thought is this:
Because Right Wingers are ALWAYS right, and the rest of the world is wrong. (in their minds of course...)
Why is it always the right wing radicals that are completely rigid in every stance they take? Why are there no compromises in their belief systems? Why are they always right, and the rest of the world who stand against them are wrong? These right wingers have so many opinions about EVERYTHING, and if you don't agree with them, YOU are the one who is wrong.
Conversely with Liberals, they welcome an idea and then have at least SOME flexibility in it. Which I guess, it where the word "Liberal" comes from. They are much more open-minded in actually hearing or taking something into consideration and welcoming new methods of operating. Very rarely do you ever hear someone who is liberal, "closed minded", yet any Republican I know fits that description.
Retards like this Newt Gingrich only have OTHER people to blame for the things that aren't the "right way," (his way) and they don't have any grey area in their lives to see that some things don't have black and white solutions, like he would have you believe. To him and people like him, there is always an answer, and always someone to blame for it.
Hmmmmmm, I would like to hear Gingrich talk to the mothers who have lost sons and daughters in a meaningless fight in Iraq, and hear who he has to blame for that. Is it the people of Iraq who never attacked the USA, and forced their government to spend trillions of dollars abroad fighting an enemy they never knew they had? Or is it the government for the people, by the people who continued this fight after it was revealed that this Iraqi government had no weapons of mass destruction, like they told the world they did.
Well, while we are here, we may as well install a government better than how the last one treated us who will sell us oil at a good price, right?
And 10 years later, they are still there...
So let's see, how can you expect to spend reckless amounts of money in 10 years, and expect a poor black man (who by the way, is just as black as he is white...) to solve the USA's problems inside of 1 or 2 years? If YOU spent recklessly for 10 years in your own personal life, and you HAD to pay it back and not declare bankruptcy, would you expect the be able to pay it back in 2 years?!
