    How else should one interpret this?:

    Obama records robocall for Coakley - washingtonpost.com

    In this robocall, he says that the only way he can do what needs to be done, he must have a filibuster proof majority in the Senate.

    So much for his reaching across the aisle, bi-partisan, campaign promises. :doubt:

    I'm just sitting around waiting for all the transparent stuff to start happening. That all starts after they stick the Health Care Reform Bill in the trash can doesn't it? About this time next week when the new Republican Senator for MA comes to DC... Obama will be so depressed that he might actually start doing some of the stuff he promised on his campaign trail to the White House. Then maybe we will see some transparent activity.:lol:

    C'mon now Mani ...

    I can't believe you would post something like this after watching the GOP filibuster just about everything that hit the Senate last year.

    I've always been upfront about my philosophy about this. IMO, if something really important needs to be done, the sides will come together and get it done. If you can't convince ONE fucking senator from the other party that it needs doing then it doesn't.

    I'd buy that if the GOP hadn't made it so the Dems need 60 votes to pass anything that comes to the floor. They have.
