Shorter Leonard Pitts…

“Barack Obama’s hope and change failed, and it’s all the fault of the evil bastard Republicans, those racist white devils.”

Leonard Pitts usually keeps his racism better hidden than this. He must be getting frustrated. If I shared his political beliefs I’d be getting frustrated too, but he seems to forget the president’s attitude toward bipartisanship as summed up in this quote to House Minority Leader Eric Cantor in the wake of the 2008 election:

“Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”

And I love how he cites it as significant that RINO hacks like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dick Lugar are whining about the party’s direction and completely ignores things like what happened to Joe Lieberman — and Lieberman is arguably much closer to Democratic core beliefs than Lugar and Schwarzenegger are to Republican beliefs. Perhaps Pitts thinks diversity of opinion is more important for Republicans than Democrats. If I remember correctly, the fact that Richard Lugar had not actually lived at the Indiana address he claimed as his residence for some 30 years was just as much a factor in his defeat as was his voting record.

But even if it wasn’t, so what? The two parties may be similar in many ways, but if Party A wants to take your guns and your money and Party B wants to let you keep them, why should Party A tolerate someone who would vote to take your guns and your money? Why are the Republicans the extremists here?

Apparently because Leonard Pitts says they are.

    I have friends who’ve spent the past 12 years blaming Bush, but now that Obama is up for re-election, they’re posting crap on Facebook about how the President isn’t really that powerful compared to Congress. The desperation is palpable, but honestly I’d be surprised at this point if Obama isn’t reelected.
