Default For Democrats, saying “one term president” is patriotic again

In July, 2011, Mitch McConnell stated that his goal is to make Obama a one-term president...

The Left was outraged...

Mitch McConnell has his own Priority

Hard to believe this much hate doesn't have it's roots in something else because this has been his attitude from the day Obama was elected.

For some illogical reason, this is supposed to be some affront to democracy or something...

But of course, when the new head of the Democrat Party says the same thing, I have a feeling the Left's outrage will NOT be so similar...

For Democrats, saying “one term president” is patriotic again

Everything old is new again, but the Democratic National Committee may need to borrow a dictionary from somebody and look up the word “hypocrisy.” As we discussed yesterday evening, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez was narrowly elected to be the new DNC chair. (Shortly thereafter, he made some attempt at offering an olive branch by getting the assembled members to suspend the rules and declare Keith Ellison as vice chair. ) The new top dog of the party wasted no time in setting the tone for his stewardship. In a moment which would almost certainly come back to haunt him if anyone was interested in holding Democrats accountable, Perez broke out a golden oldie which had previously been used to bash Republicans over the head for several years. (WaPo)

“Someday, they’re going to study this era of American history,” Perez said after his win. “They’re going to ask the question of all of us: Where were you in 2017 when we had the worst president in the history of the United States? We will be able to say that the Democratic Party led the resistance and made sure this was a one-term president.”
Wait a minute… I thought that walking in the door and immediately declaring the purpose of your party to be ensuring that a new president would only serve one term was a bad thing. Didn’t I hear that somewhere? Oh, that’s right… I heard it from virtually every cable news outlet and major newspaper since 2012. But back in January we already discussed the fact that there’s an even more raw bit of irony to be considered every time the subject comes up. Even the Washington Post fact checker was forced to concede that the Republicans never actually said this “as soon as Barack Obama was elected.” In fact, Mitch McConnell said it during an interview with The Nation two years later on the eve of the midterm elections.
