Partisan Divide

160314 partisan divide

President Obama said last week that he didn’t contribute to the partisan divide in the country. Here are some other things he has said:

• We’re going to punish our enemies and reward our friends.

If they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun.

If somebody wants to build a coal fired plant they can, it’s just that it will bankrupt them.

If you’ve got a business you didn’t build that, somebody else made that happen.

• And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

They don’t do anything except block me and call me names.

• Why can’t I eat my waffle.

Holman Jenkins in the WSJ says, “he’s out of his mind.”

Republican Partisan Divide

If the president didn’t divide the country, somebody else must have made that happen. Donald Trump’s rhetoric about punishing his enemies has taken blame from the media and other Republicans.

But left wing mobs made up of the likes of MoveOn.Org and Black Live Matter took credit for shutting down free speech in Chicago Friday night.

Just like on campus.

Trump wants to “open up” libel law to make it easier for him to sue the media.

Rich Lowry says that even George Wallace would have to admire the way Trump parlayed the thuggery into “wall to wall media coverage.”
