When a politician’s re-election and party supremacy are top priorities, how can there be any desire or drive for ‘compromise’ with the opposition political party?
Rush Limbaugh asks a good question; when Democrats claim Republicans – to be successful – should be willing to compromise their positions, do they really expect Republicans should believe Democrats WANT them to succeed? Highly unlikely.
The answer, of course, is that Democrats don’t wish Republicans well…they merely want a general PERCEPTION to be that they wish Republicans well.
Furthermore, persuasive language like ‘compromise’ conveniently hides the fact that its composition is unlikely to help an opposition party, often alienating their base as well.
Other than Rush, very few question the validity of the ‘compromise’ itself.
‘Compromise’? Don’t believe it for a minute!
