How Obama and GOP live in parallel political universe


CORRESPONDENT JOHN KING.>>WOLF, ONE OF THE BIGGEST LESSONS OF THE DEBATE IS HE LIVE IN A A PARALLEL POLITICAL UNIVERSITY. LESS THAN A YEAR AGO HE WON A HUGE VICTORY. AS THE PRESIDENT WAS WINNING, MITT ROMNEY VOWED TO DEFEND THE LAW. — DEFEAT THE LAW. ACROSS THE COUNTRY, LOOKAL OUGHT THOUSAND RED IN THOSE HOUSE DISTRICTS. MITT ROMNEY WON MORE HOUSE DISTRICTS THAN PRESIDENT OBAMA. THESE MEMBERS THINK THE VOTERS WANT THEM TO STAND UP TO THE PRESIDENT, INCLUDING ON THE HEALTH CARE LAW. REMEMBER, ALL THIS STARTED WHEN 80 HOUSE REPUBLICANS SIGNED A LETTER TO THE SPEAK SAYING WE WILL NOT FUND VOTE TO FUND THE GOVERNMENT UNLESS THAT LEGISLATION ALSO STRIPS ALL THE MONEY FROM THE 79’S HEALTH CARE PLAY. 80 SAID IN THE END, 71 OF THEM STOOD THEIR GROUND, ONLY NINE YES VOTES FOR THE COMPROMISE. HERE’S ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AT IT. IF YOU’RE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT AND YOU’RE A REPUBLICAN, WELL, THE SAFE VOTE WAS NO. 2016 PROSPECTS ALL DECIDE DECIDING TO VOTE NO, EVEN THOUGH THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP WANTED THEM TO VOTE IN FAVOR OF THE COMPROMISE. FOR SOME MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE, YOU WOULD HAVE TO SAY THIS, ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. OF THE 232 HOUSE REPUBLICANS, IT’S A REMARKABLY LOW NUMBER, BUT ONLY 17 GO HOME TO DISTRICTS THAT THEY WON, MEANING A REPUBLICAN HOUSE MEMBER, BUT THE PRESIDENT WON THOSE DISTRICTS SEEKING REELECTION. OF THOSE 17, 15 DECIDED TO VOTE YES, VOTING THE WAY THE PRESIDENT WOULD HAVE WANTED THEM TO VOTE, BECAUSE THEIR DISTRICTS PERHAPS LESS REPUBLICAN-LEANING THAN MOST OF THEIR COLLEAGUES. AS WE WATCH TO SEE THOUSAND THIS PLAYS OUT, THE TEA PARTY CALLED THIS DEAL HORRIBLE, SAID IT WOULD PUNISH THOSE WHO VOTED YES. WATCH THESE THREE RACES. MITCH McCONNELL. HE BROKERED THE DEAL. HE VOTED YES. LaMAR ALEXANDER OF TENNESSEE, AND THE PROMINENT REPUBLICAN SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM, ALL VOTED YES, ALL ON THE BALLOT NEXT YEAR, ALL FACING TEA PARTY

  1. And right wing idiots say CNN is liberal. Yes Romney won more House districts that were *gerrymandered by Republican state legislators in 2011. Obama clearly won the popular vote.

  2. Pushed the "show comment" button
    Youtube says the comment in not available….
    I guess that bitch got owned by your reply….
    LOL

  3. Ha! Would love to see this SAME so called analysis once the Democrats win back the house in 2014. Would love to see how Jon King defends the GOP's parallel universe thinking of their so called gerrymandered districts all wanting them to repeal Obamacare. Lets see, so the President wants to mandate gun control and pass immigration reform. Can he have that from the GOP in exchange of repealing Obamacare?

  4. What the hell are you talking about. 3.9% ain't a huge difference??????

    Bush – Kerry 2.4%
    Bush – Gore -0.5%
    Clinton – Dole/Perot 0.6%

    If you want an example of a huge difference in these past two decades, THIS IS IT!

  5. You want something original? How about posting something sane for a change, something that makes sense so that people don't have to insult you in the first place? And if you're really so sure about your opinion, you don't have to feel insulted or offended by random youtube comments. If you're so sure about it, you don't go around whining about it.
