I’m shocked, SHOCKED that a person in the MSM is an ardent Obama supporter who wants him to defeat Republicans:
FOX NEWS – A column published on Slate.com over the weekend urged President Obama to “pulverize” and destroy his Republican opponents — even “go for the throat” — in order to “cement his legacy.”
The words of advice, though, didn’t come from a Democratic strategist or a former member of the president’s inner circle.
The nearly 2,000-word playbook came from CBS News’ political director John Dickerson.
Dickerson, who also works as chief political correspondent for Slate, had some unusually harsh words for the minority party as Obama takes the oath and launches into his second term.
To hear Dickerson tell it, Republicans have proved so intransigent that Obama’s only option is to obliterate them. The subhead on the article said, “Obama must declare war on the Republican Party” if he wants to transform American politics.
“There’s no indication that the president’s clashes with House Republicans will end soon,” Dickerson wrote. “The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.”
