Cal Thomas on Obama's Partisanship
Cal Thomas c0-wrote the book pictured above attempting to help facilitate real debate and discussion between people with differing political views and party affiliations. In an article written for World Magazine, Thomas argues President Obama used "common ground" rhetoric to get elected but has been completely partisan since taking office virtually squelching any form of legitimate input from people with differing viewpoints. Read the article here.
Two quotes from Thomas-
Part of the reason for the intense dislike of this president by some on the right is their belief that he used a longing among the public for civil discourse to get elected, but then quickly abandoned that laudable goal in pursuit of what is arguably the most radical left agenda in the history of our nation.
The president talks a great game about civility, the corrosive language of politics, and the self-absorbed media that promotes conflict, not solutions. But President Obama’s policies and behavior and the people who populate his administration suggest he isn’t serious. Many in his administration are radical leftists.
