  •  Gergen still believes repubs are reasonable (5+ / 0-)

    Like many pundits in the Village, he seems to have an enormous difficulty to see the republicans for what they have become: ideologues and bullies, who are NOT interested in compromise.

    President Obama is going back into campaign mode because republicans are INCAPABLE of accepting that they have lost the election.

    And when it comes to the past presidents, one or two other things Gergen and his friends have to understand:

    1) you NEVER compare a democratic president to a republican one. A republican president never has to face an unreasonable, bullying opposition. So spare us the Reagan comparison.

    2) Lyndon Johnson had some moderate republicans to work with. Now there still may be some moderate republicans left, but they don't collaborate because they're too scared of losing their primaries to a far-right candidate.

    The problem in Washington is the new far right republican party. When are the Villagers going to face reality ???
