Um, bipartisanship? President Barack Obama “would object” to the annihilation of the Republican Party, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Thursday. His comments came two days after Republican House Speaker John Boehner charged that doing away with the GOP would be one of the Democrat’s top second-term priorities.
“I know it’s not his goal. His goal is to work together with Congress, with members of both parties to achieve progress on behalf of the American people,” Carney said.
But Obama would not object if somehow the GOP were destroyed, right?
“I think he would object,” Carney insisted. “He believes that the two-party system is part of the foundation of our democracy and that it is a healthy aspect of our democracy even if it’s contentious.”
