Ideologically, Barack Obama is equivalent to the intolerant man who has never in his life traveled beyond the city limits of his small, insular town. He has zero ability to pull back and look at himself objectively. Consequently, he sees himself as non-partisan, as not supported by special interests, and, most likely, as not even having an ideology. He is, in this sense, a very closed-minded individual.
From The Hill:
President Barack Obama went on the attack against Republicans on Saturday, accusing the GOP of obstructing a litany of his legislative priorities in Congress.
The president struck a decidedly partisan note in his address, castigating Senate Republicans in particular for using their 41-vote bloc to slow down and filibuster a number of pieces of legislation.
“What we need is a willingness in Washington to put the public’s interests first – a willingness to score fewer political points so that we can start solving more problems,” Obama said. “That’s why I was disappointed this week to see a dreary and familiar politics get in the way of our ability to move forward on a series of critical issues that have a direct impact on people’s lives.”
