    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. :eusa_silenced:

    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.:doubt:

    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. :eusa_liar: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. :cool:His biggest flaw has been his aloofness and standoffishness.

    I don't think it will work...but at least to the gullible :udaman:it appears like he's trying. I'm not buying it but some are.:gives:

    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?

    The only person 0bama listens to is 0bama. If the voices in his head say "fake it for a moment" then he will go through the motions.

    But what is obvious is that he is just going through the motions.

    The MSM will help out with this theme. But ... now FNC has a greater respect from viewing audiences for treating both sides with equal fairness or contempt than any other.

    Being in the minority does not mean you get everything you want.

    The cons dont know how to co opperate with anyone.

    A circular argument is worthless in this.

    The Dems are in the majority in congress.

    They hold all of the power.

    They are the ones showing their arrogance....not the Republicans.


    However now that the people are standing up for their rights the Democrats are the ones in the minority and still showing their arrogance.

    But now they want us to forget all that they've done the last year and give us the impression that now they want to do the work that should have been done all of this time.

    Now they are trying to work on unemployment and improving the economy but it's too late for them to fool us anymore. Now they look like a bunch of arrogant pricks. Notice how silent they are while Obama tries to kiss everyone's ass.

    Our current form of government is an embarassment. Just because you are a minority does not mean you cannot influence legislation. There can still be give and take...its just that those in the minority have fewer bargaining chips.
    Our current form of government is all or nothing. To put forth a win-win proposal is rejected because it allows the other guy to win also.
    Our elected officials are terrified of being lambasted on Rush Limbaugh, Beck, Olbermann and the internet blogs. Any attempt at placating the other side is instantly attacked in front of millions of viewers. Our representatives are cowards who are unwilling to stand up, comprimise and work out a middle ground....the pundits will not allow it
