“You aren’t the first candidate to say, ‘I’m going to bring this country together,’” Todd told O’Rourke. The most recent Democratic president, a lot of people put their hope in the thought he was the answer that was going to do that. Why do you think that didn’t happen in Obama’s eight years?”
And as always, Upchuck is leading the witness, as it were. To answer this question, you have to agree with the premise (that Obama failed, not that the saboteur Republicans like amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell declared that his defeat was their only policy goal. We have recordings, Todd. We know this to be true.) and O’Rourke does his best to get out of the trap.
Todd is not an honest broker of the news, he’s a Republican apparatchik.
