Republicans do what they’re told?

“Sometimes Democrats can be their own worst enemies. Democrats are an opinionated bunch. You know the other side, they just kind of do what they’re told. Democrats, ya’ll thinkin’ for yourselves. I like that in you, but it’s time for us to make sure that we finish the job here, we are this close and we’ve got to be unified.”

Yes, I know it looks like he’s insulting the Republican party…but honestly, I think he’s just really slick at delivering a backhanded compliment. *wink*

He framed his words in such a way that it would look like an insult putting down “the other side”, but actually, if you think about what he’s really saying, he’s insulting the Democrats and their inability to actually organize themselves and finish ANYTHING they start!

Read this: “but it’s time for us to make sure that we finish the job here” and “we’ve got to be unified” then tell me that doesn’t sound like a slap at the “thinkin’ for yourselves” Democrats. He’s actually saying that Democrats often can’t accomplish anything because of internal disagreements and Republicans do because they will unite politically, putting aside personal preferences in favor of party success.  Congressional Republicans are simply a disciplined bunch. They get their orders, and they execute. It’s damn effective!  You can’t get three Democrats to agree on paint color, let alone anything remotely political! Fractious and opinionated, no discipline…note the current Congress, to say nothing of the past several.

Did he say it in a derogatory way?  Hell yes.  It was a classless remark and honestly, I expect better from a president who claims to support bipartisanship. Divisive remarks will not bring any of us together.

I do believe the proper response of Republicans should not be outrage, but rather, “Why thank you, Mr. President. That’s quite a compliment.”
