« Congress Approves Stimulus Package; Specter Says Republicans "Didn't Want Their Fingerprints On It"; Obama Learns a Little Lesson (News Round-Up) | Main | Contractor KBR Pays $579 Million to Settle Bribery Charges »

Obama sees bipartisanship as a long-term need. If he can divide the Republicans enough, so that they separate into extremists and the rest, it will end Republican influence for a very long time.

Southern (in)Sanity

Obama would do well to remember the last time that the Democrats had this much "control"? Yeah, that's right. The Carter administration.

The President would do well to try and work with everyone. The various bits and pieces in this post represent the Democrats' view on the President's efforts to work with the Republicans.

This SPENDING bill represents the Democrats. If and when it fails, the Republicans will be able to say, "I told you so." If, by some miracle, it were to help, it would be a huge feather in the Democrats' proverbial cap.

Let's not forget that many of the Democrats who voted for this SPENDING bill helped create the mess that the country is in now.


Barack Obama's fantasy of a bipartisan utopia inside the Beltway was mugged by reality on December 23rd, by Massachusetts Democwat Bahney Fwank, the first House member to come out of the closet voluntarily, and also the first member of the House to be censured for providing the apartment out of which a gay boyfriend ran a gay prostitution ring. He said, "Oh, I believe that (Obama) overestimates his ability to get people to put aside fundamental differences." And no wonder. The worshipful national media carried Bammy thru his nomination to his election, no questions asked.
