This Week In 'Both Sides Do It' Matthew Dowd Edition

Thanks SNL!!
Views:

From this Sunday's This Week with George Stephanopoulos, GOP professional turd polisher and former Bushie Matthew Dowd doing what he does best... blaming "both sides" and Washington in general for the record level of obstruction we've seen from Republicans for the last six years.

The latest excuse for their intransigence -- President Obama is "arrogant."

MATT DOWD: Well, he definitely grabbed the initiative in a way that would put his policies through. I think, one, we need to do something about immigration. That -- it's absolutely crucial that we do something about it. I think the manner with which the president did it doesn't do anything to help the political discourse in our country and doesn't do anything to fix the fundamental problem that exists in Washington, which is the means of government is broken, on both sides of the aisle. And as I said earlier this week, where -- when obstructionism meets arrogance, dysfunction is born. And that's what we have in Washington.

We can now add Dowd's name to the list of pundits, most of which reside over at Faux "news" that have decided to call President Obama "uppity." We can thank the lazy writers over at SNL for helping ABC to continue to prove they're every bit as awful as Fox as well, since Dowd's nonsense here was in response to showing part of that lame, dishonest skit of theirs.
