    The Republicans have already taken their stand - which is not to budge or reconcile one iota.

    Why bother tamping down the rhetoric?


    Much as I hate to say it - I think rhetoric may be the right tactic at this time.

    To be fair, the democrats were never too interested in bipartisanship when Obama took office, and it's basically devolved into both parties essentially holding the "my way or the high way" attitude.

    The Republicans have shown on multiple occasions that they are willing to work with Democrats to better the country.

    It be nice if Democrats actually tried to though.

    I'd have to agree with you.

    The only bipartisanship involved with this bill were the 32 (or however many the final number turned out to be) Democrats who had the conviction to vote NO to this mess of a health care bill.

    I think Obama was seriously interested in bipartisanship. I do not think the Democrats in Congress were however. It just made the partisan stances stronger.

    That's a matter of opinion.
