What is in the Water Some Republicans are Drinking?
Can someone explain to me what’s in the water so many Republicans seem to be drinking? It’s not just that “compassionate conservativism” now seems to have been a phrase popular two centuries ago: basic civility, decency and manners also seem to be out the window, trumped (excuse the expression) by an overpowering urge to show partisanship in almost all reactions. For instance READ THIS.
The political obsession here wasn’t Giffords. It is LOGICAL that given what happened to her Giffords would feel she wanted to spend some private time with the families. And, it turns out, it was private time. Hovey’s reaction sounded like an audition for a regular gig on Fox & Friends.
This is part of a larger problem in American politics: knee-jerk partisan reactions.
With the emphasis on the word separated by the hyphen from “knee.”
