Who Are The Real Obstructionists?

Obstructionism for me, but not for thee …

From Revealing Politics:

Obama ralliers exiting an Obama event at Ohio State University are asked by Caleb Bonham about what they think of so-called “obstructionist” politics. Many of the Obama supporters blamed Republicans and denounced obstructionist tactics. The most ardent activists called for Republicans to cross the isle and help enact Obama’s economic and social policies.

However, when the tables were turned, the interviewees were not so quick to advocate bipartisanship if it meant Democrats helping Republicans enact Mitt Romney’s economic and social policies. In fact, many of those interviewed advocated for obstructionism. Go figure.
