  •  Yes, but that antagonism towards Democrats (6+ / 0-)

    is also greatly based on race. Obama's a lightning rod, but the hate would be there even without him.

    That hate has played a role in a whole lot of things including welfare 'reform'  and the failure of health reform in the 90s.

    •  but ultimately GOP compromised with Clinton (13+ / 0-)

      The difference is that the GOP, hate filled and insane, impeached Clinton but was willing to work with him even then.

      Now, and almost since day one, the GOP has been incapable and unwilling to even have a civil discussion with and about Obama. It is the same but also vastly intensified.

      The GOP's reaction to Clinton was contempt and disrespect but pragmatism. With Obama there is no pragmatic side. Maybe there doesn't have to be, maybe they are simply incapable of being pragmatic with O for other reasons.

      especially anyone whose brain does not function identical to their own.  BUT... President Obama being black makes the hate so much more delicious and satisfying.  It appears Hillary will provide them almost identical pleasure.  It actually seems they revel in the pleasure/pain of it all.
