Or, like many on the left, he’s decided to pretend the left’s behavior over the last 8 years didn’t really happen. Tom Maguire at Just One Minute calls him out in devastating fashion:
Joe Gandelman of The Moderately Amusing (And Reliably Liberal) Voice pens on political polarization in the US and challenges our imaginations with this toughie:
If Republicans and conservatives make the very legitimacy of Obama, his patriotism — even the safety of allowing little kids listen to him tell them to stay in school and think about helping their community — the issue, and link his name to Hitler and/or Nazism, precisely how do they think Democrats and the left will respond next time a GOPer is in power? How will the next Republican President be treated in terms of legitimacy and doing what he/she feels is in the best interest of the country?
This taxes the imagination, but let’s try – I predict wild movies alleging the President is in cahoots with foreign terrorists and domestic criminals, prominent Democrats alleging that the President conspired to kill thousands of Americans, constant linkage of the Republican President with Hitler, and an ongoing denial of his legitimacy. At a guess.
We eagerly await Mr.Gandelman’s return to our Solar System.
Him and a few others. I mean, seriously, how can someone who was actually conscious during the last administration even think of asking “well, what will Republicans do when they get treated badly?” We’ve seen – in graphic detail – what happens and we saw most clearly who was delivering the bad treatment. To suggest that Republicans are being somehow unprecedented in their opposition actions is simply ignorant, at best. And we’re not coming anywhere near the level of vitriol directed at us over the last 8 years. If Mr. Gandelman wants to argue that we shouldn’t be doing whatever it is he’s complaining about, then he’d better find a more suitable angle than to suggest that we wouldn’t like being treated the same. We’ve been treated far worse, sir, and it was by your side. Want to see a return to less polarization? Don’t do the polarizing.
