While it should come as no surprise that “Governor Gridlock” Maggie Hassan wanted some face-time at the No Labels Problem Solvers Convention this morning, it was unfortunate to see that she attended in the wrong capacity.
Rather than take the stage and bloviate about two subjects she knows little about—bipartisanship and the art of compromise—Governor Hassan should have taken a seat in the audience and learned a thing or two.
Governor Hassan didn’t waste any time distorting her record in order to plug the day’s buzzword, bipartisan, 15 times. (Despite delivering a less than ten-minute speech!)
To set the record straight, we took the liberty of bringing Governor Hassan’s rhetoric back to reality. Here’s how Governor Gridlock’s “bipartisan leadership” has actually played out in New Hampshire:
HASSAN: “In New Hampshire, we do democracy better than anyplace else.”
HASSAN: “Bipartisanship is setting aside preconceived notions and rigorously examining our own long held positions.”
HASSAN: “Bipartisan problem solving means doing hard things.”
HASSAN: “Bipartisanship isn’t signing onto a bill where you agree with almost everything in it or naming a bill with a title that gives lip service to a policy or idea without actually enacting the policy or furthering the idea in the bill itself.”
HASSAN: “Bipartisanship is engaging in the hard process of give and take. It is recognizing that you aren’t going to get everything you want.”
HASSAN: “There is a difference between superficial and substantive bipartisanship.”
