This has been around for a couple of days, but I wanted to make sure you saw it.
One of President Obama’s top advisers suggested to the Washington Post the other day that neither Republicans nor the American political system are “worthy” of Obama’s political agenda.
“There’s a moment of opportunity now that’s important,” said White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer . “What’s frustrating is that we don’t have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.”
Checks and balances are a cruel thing when you are trying to do great things that Republicans couldn’t possibly understand, I know. But because of those idiots who founded our country, that’s the system we got, Dan.
People should understand that Pfeiffer is not just the West Wing Minister of Propaganda. He’s a smart political veteran who is one of a small handful of aides deeply trusted by the president. If he thinks this way, you can be sure the attitude is pervasive and extends straight to the top.
