Marco Rubio CPAC Speech: Wants Republicans to Take the High Road

Marco Rubio made a provident observation that, outside of politics, people who disagree with each other work together to resolve problems all the time. But, as he notes, the key to that cooperation is mutual respect. The obvious question then is whether cooperation between Democrats and Republicans remain possible when the President continued to use inflammatory language to demonize his Republican opponents. Terms like bigot, war on women, shameless, and racist may work well to rally the passion of voters, it certainly doesn't cultivate a spirit of cooperation between parties. Yes, Mr. President, elections do have consequences and so does language you used to describe your opponents.
