Bipartisanship means submission
Ace, your little NPR derp is just following the marching orders handed down by Dear Leader. Even as his Administration was rocked by multiple abuse-of-power scandals, Barack Obama was telling big Democrat donors that the real problem is those rascally Republicans, who have been led by a certain pied piper to reject His Majesty's gracious offer of bipartisanship and spread cynicism about government instead:
“What’s blocking us right now is a sort of hyper-partisanship in Washington that I was, frankly, hoping to overcome in 2008,” Obama said today, according to the pool report. “My thinking was when we beat them in 2012 that might break the fever, and it’s not quite broken yet. But I am persistent. And I am staying at it. And I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them.”
“As a consequence we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government,” he told donors. “My intentions over the next 3 ½ years are to govern. … If there are folks who are more interested in winning elections than they are thinking about the next generation then I want to make sure there are consequences to that.”
Yes, the man who seems hell-bent on validating every paranoid fear of tyrannical government blames you for promoting cynicism, by noticing what he and his henchmen have been up to. The man who referred to the dead of Benghazi as "bumps in the road" thinks you're too cynical.
Servile little toadies like your NPR chew toy aren't smart enough to think up even these dopey rants about Obama's lust for "bipartisanship," a term synonymous with "submission" when liberals use it. They just regurgitate their leader's most recent speech. They rise each morning with the hopes of finding some talking points from Obama's political operatives in their email, the way children rise on Christmas morning and hope for presents beneath the tree.
