Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Does the president know what negotiation means?

So President Obama will talk with terrorists. But he won’t talk with Republicans. Republicans decide to give in to a major demand of Democrats. And the president and Democrat controlled Senate reject the offer, demand more.

Now you might be tempted to say that’s exactly how negotiation works, and Democrats are executing it brilliantly. If that were the only factor to consider you’d be right. But to reject almost every offer made by Republicans and yet continue blaming Republicans for the government shutdown doesn’t compute. Without willing accomplices among the information gatekeepers logic leads us to conclude the people who won’t accept any deal unless they get EVERYTHING they want are in fact responsible for the shutdown. But with a news media who does for Democrats what marketing does for business all you need is to put out a ridiculous narrative about how Republicans won’t play nice and it gets blindly repeated at almost every media outlet.

Thinking for yourself is tantamount to racism, so don’t bother trying. With a team like this who needs to negotiate?
