Obama's New Definition of 'Bipartisan'

Lee Cary

In the President’s dictionary of political terms, “bipartisan” means this: If I, the President, listen to your ideas, then you must accept mine. It’s unilateral bipartisanism.

Barack Obama’s fundamental mindset of Orwellian doublethink continues to reveal itself as he, again, espouses two contradictory beliefs at the same time, seemingly accepting both.

Although Obama doublethink existed during the campaign, big media made no effort to examine or question it.

In his televised speech to Democrat members of the House last night, President Obama said:

“Look, I value the constructive criticism and healthy debate that is a foundation of American democracy. I don't think any of us have cornered the market on wisdom, or that good ideas are the province of any party. The American people know that our challenges are great. They're not expecting Democratic solutions or Republican solutions -- they want American solutions. And I have said that to those who have criticized the plan.

But what I have also said is -- don't come to table with the same tired arguments and worn ideas that helped create this crisis.” [Emphasis added.]

That’s doublethink: I value constructive criticism that represents the same tired Republican arguments. Say what?  (Full story at American Thinker)
