Candy Crowley Feigns Ignorance Of Republican Obstruction And Hatred Of Obama


I don't know about anyone else, but I'm really tired of watching these talking heads in the media pretend they don't realize why President Obama has not been able to govern as he promised during the last presidential campaign -- the fact that Republicans decided obstruction and making him a one term president was going to be their primary goal.

But that's exactly what we got from Candy Crowley during her interview with Robert Gibbs this Sunday: Gibbs: Obama Has ‘Not Gotten Consensus’ Because Republicans Don’t Want That:

On CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs conceded that President Obama has not achieved the political unity he promised as a candidate, but blamed Republicans.

“Well, he’s not gotten consensus, Candy, because it is hard to get consensus when the other side of the aisle has no desire at all to build consensus,” he said.

These beltway Villagers call themselves journalists, but ask questions like this as though they don't already know the answer, when that answer is painfully obvious to anyone paying a bit of attention to how Republicans have behaved since President Obama was elected. I don't think anyone expected to see Republicans voting against their very own policies because a Democrat was willing to put his name on them, but that's what we've had for the last few years. Crowley doesn't have much respect for her audience when she does things like this.
