Democrats Hypocritically Call On John McCain To Mediate

The most essential ingredient of a Democrat is hypocrisy.  And not just a pinch of hypocrisy; they dump it into the mixture of their mixed-up psyches by the cup-full.  Case in point – the following story:

Democrats say McCain can help mediate standoffs

By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press
PHOENIX – Before resting from the grueling presidential race, John McCain began discussing with senior aides what role he will play in the Senate now that he has promised to work with the man who defeated him for president.

Democrats, who padded their majorities in the House and Senate, have a suggestion: McCain can mediate solutions to partisan standoffs on key legislation as he did to help avert a constitutional meltdown over judicial confirmations in 2005.

“There’s a need for the old John McCain, a leader who worked in a bipartisan way,” Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Wednesday.

It’s unfortunate that the AP story doesn’t mention the way Democrats called on John McCain to help mediate the bailout package vote, only to viciously turn on him and demagogue his efforts once he got there.  The same Chuck Schumer who said, “There’s a need for the old John McCain” not very long ago attacked that same “old John McCain” with the following rant:

Charles Schumer was among the many Democrats jumping on the hard-core partisan Democratic bandwagon to attack John McCain for trying to help:

Schumer also requested that Bush get the House Republicans in line. “We need President Bush to take leadership. We need President Bush, first and foremost, to get the Republican House members to support his plan or modify it in some way to bring them on board,” he said.

He added, “When you inject presidential politics into some of the most difficult negotiations under normal circumstances, it is fraught with difficulty. Before McCain made his announcement, we were making great progress. Now after his announcement, we are behind the 8 ball. We have to put things back together again.”

The Associated Press article portrays Democrats as being bi-partisan and noble in calling for John McCain’s help in the upcoming administration.  It fails to mention how deceitful, disingenuous, hypocritical, and mean-spirited the little demagogues were the LAST time they called for John McCain’s help.  Schumer lied when he said they were making “good progress” during the bailout package negotiations prior to McCain’s arrival.  There was no deal on the table.  House Republicans had been shut out of any negotiations.  There was only a cheap political ambush waiting for John McCain when he showed up.

I wrote about the incredibly disengenuous way the Democratic leadership called for John McCain’s involvement, and then attacked him for involving himself the moment he suspended his campaign to try to exercise his leadership within the Republican Party for the common good.

The American people want bipartisan cooperation.  But Democrats sure don’t.  And they haven’t for years.

Hopefully, John McCain has finally learned his lesson.  Unlike Barack Obama – who has basically never reached across the political divide to conservatives the way McCain routinely did with liberals (e.g., Russ Feingold and Ted Kennedy), McCain has too often been with Democrats the way Charlie Brown was with Lucy and the football.

The Democratic leadership is watching the stock market sink nearly 500 points on the day after the election, and they know if they say what they really want to do, it will go down like the air pressure of a car tire following a blowout. And now all the economic woes that Democrats like Chuck Schumer earlier delighted in stirring up are on THEIR watch.  But they want to compromise with Republicans the way wolves want to compromise with deer fawns.

Hopefully, John McCain will tell Charles Schumer what to go do with himself.

  1. Fight them Senator! Says:

    That’s what I say. The time for reconciliation with that bunch of Liberanarchists is over. Let them stew. They want gay marriages, sex education at school, and gays in the military, Muslim coordinators in the White House and peace with Arab Killer Squads. Let them do it on their own. Don’t assist them in any manner whatsoever. Let them stew!

    Obama never once showed any respect for the President of his Country during the campaign. He chose to refer to ‘’failed policies of George Bush’’ and encouraged young pipsqueak supporters to belittle Senator McCain as that McBush, that McInsane, as warmonger responsible for killing innocent babies and civilians.

    Let them have their own medicine. This is not the time for Christians TO TURN THE OTHER CHEEK!
