Bill feels that the left vilifies the right by miss-quoting statements from conservatives to further a liberal agenda. He cites a few examples of this and then goes on to criticize the right for pulling support for republicans who don’t fit the profile of a perfect conservative.
This is a great example of the infighting within the Republicans party along with the state of politics in general. Bill suggests that taking quotes out of context is strictly a liberal tactic.
It’s a tactic of both sides and a catalyst of gridlock in government.
Democrats try to keep dissention within the party to a minimum; at least publically.
Below are a few examples of criticisms often cited by conservative that are also taken out of context.
“All Gore tried to take credit for creating The Internet”
This is a blatant mistruth. Gore sponsored a bill to commercialize the internet and make it available to the general public. Pretty ironic that a party that is accused by conservatives as trying silence people, was instrumental in democratizing online information by enabling anyone with online access to voice their opinion. The very reason Bill is able to post his videos.
“You didn’t build that”
This is a republican favorite. Obama was really suggesting that the infrastructure that business uses to grow (roads, bridges, highways,, etc) was created by government and not the entrepreneur. It’s true. America is the greatest platform on earth for creating and building a business, hands down.
“What’s the difference?”
This is another Republican favorite. While testifying, Hillary Clinton suggested that the most important thing to do find out where the breakdown in communication occurred and prevent another attack from occurring on an American embassy. What the difference really referred to whether the attack was premeditated or spontaneous.
Both sides are guilty of the same thing and the false accusations just further the gap, making bipartisanship nearly impossible.
America needs to stop the nonsense on both sides and attack real problems that face our Country. Pointing fingers and merely calling for God and Country principals will not make our problems magically disappear.
