The Democrats and the President have been telling us all year that they won the election so what they say goes. What we want doesn't matter. Now they want us to believe that all of that partisanship was just in our imaginations. Instead they are trying to reach across the isle and talk to those they have been shutting out for over a year. Do you think it will work? Do you think it's real? I doubt it. Obama allowed himself to be questioned the other day by Republican Congressmen and women but he never really answered any of their questions directly. The left says he won, but the point was not to win. It was to work together. They claim that the GOP had their collective asses handed to them. Is this really what it was all about? Kicking someone's butt or trying to get something done? Which is it? Now they claim it's the Republicans that started the partisanship. That they are the ones standing in the way of progress when in fact the American people stood up and told their representatives they were ignoring them and pushing through policies that they felt were damaging our country. Obama's poll numbers have been tanking so now he's talking at his critics [yes talking at...not talking to] and last night he even called play by play during an NBA game. This is an attempt to make him look like a man of the people. His biggest flaw has been his aloofness and standoffishness. I don't think it will work...but at least to the gullible it appears like he's trying. I'm not buying it but some are. Do you think he's really trying to work with Republicans or is this just another ploy to trick everyone into thinking he's open to suggestions?
