"Independent voters aren't partisans; they're pragmatists," said Democratic strategist Steve McMahon. "What they really want is bipartisanship, fiscal restraint and balanced approaches to problem solving. And they tend to punish the party in power -- whether Republican or Democrat -- when they believe any of those things are too far out of balance."
McMahon is right on the money with that statement.
Here is the WaPo article:
Independents abandon Obama
We aren't getting any of that from Obama and his accomplices. We don't have bipartisanship; in fact, we have a virulently, vituperatively divided Congress and general assembly.
There is no fiscal restraint whatsoever. Obama and his entourage of fiscal idiots are spending our money like drunken sailors on leave in Subic Bay, and for about the same purpose, figuratively if not literally.
And Obama wouldn't know 'balance' if a balance beam fell out of the sky and brained him.
Nor does his Henchman-in-Chief, Dave Axelrod, get it:
White House senior adviser David Axelrod said that the criticism of Obama as a big-spending liberal grows out of decisions the president felt he had to make to prevent a depression. "We were forced to do things from the start to deal with this economic crisis that helped create a false narrative about spending and deficits that's had some impact on independent voters," Axelrod said. "And that's something we have to work on."
A 'false narrative'?
What's the current deficit, Dave?
How about the way in which Obama shoved ObamaCare down our throats?
How about the way he is shoving his healthcare rationing, death panel doc Don Berwick up another orifice?
How about all that 'transparency'? Like in the Department of Justice? Like in Russia-Gate? Speaking of which, just what is it, Barry O, that you don't want us to find out? Why the rush to get these guys out of the country? Whose hands did you find in their pockets?
Obama and his henchmen. Clueless, bumbling amateurs who just ain't ready for prime time.
Go on back to Chicago, boys, and sharpen your skills shaking down the Garbage Collectors' union for payoffs out of the pension fund.
