Now, let’s see. When the Liberals (Progressives, leftists, elites, Democrats, socialists, Rinos, etc) win it is a mandate by the people to push their agenda. When they lose it is an indication that we are supposed to cooperate. Hmmmm...
Sounds like the “half loaf” theory of politics that is so common with the left. In this theory we are told it is only fair that we compromise and divide our loaf of bread with them. In the spirit of compromise and because of Biblical mandates to share, we give them half of our loaf. They immediately move the line of scrimmage and now focus their attention on our half of the loaf. They say that we need to learn to share and demand half. We resist. They get the news media talking heads to begin a smear campaign accusing us of every evil thing in the book and some that are not. They finally wear us down and they get half of our half. It is now time to move the goal posts. They look at our bread and call for fairness and an end to partisanship. They demand half of our loaf.
Do you see where this is going?
When are we going to learn to adopt the Little Red Hen as a role model? When it came time to eat the bread she quoted the apostle Paul,
(2 Thessalonians 3:10 KJV) For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.I say that if we can find a place where the Little Red Hen and the Apostle Paul agree it behooves us to pay attention.
If you are still not convinced, remember the words of our Golfer in Chief at an early meeting designed to give the impression of being bipartisan, “We won.”
Beware the Ides of Bipartisanship. I urge the Republicans in congress to act like winners and not whiners. The country did not vote for cooperation, they voted for Change and a chance to Hope.
