    The GOP allowed cameras into their little get together where Obama was invited to speak.

    The GOP was civil and gave it their best shot, but according to every talking head I've seen this weekend...Liberal, Moderate and Conservative...the consensus is Obama came away well. Even the great con man, Roger Ailes, gave Obama high marks.

    Obama was seen as rational, sane, reasoned, well spoken, factual and humorous....

    except the wingnuts here and elsewhere seem to have come away with another take. Seems mo matter what Obama does...the infection that is hate...warps the perceptions.

    your hate (and you know who you are), is infecting you so deeply within your very being...I am becoming concerned for you all.

    I am not so sure Obama owes them anything. The GOP came away from the meeting with a very big weight lifted off their shoulders. After Obama admitted that he had seen, read and even incorporated some of the GOP ideas, no one who wants to be taken seriously can call the GOP, "The party of NO" any longer.

    Not only could you not compromise, you couldn't even get your talking points across. Not that you didn't try mind you....

    Really? So why the "we" comment in your original post?

    Obama said he did so and that the GOP still said no...to the ''incorporated'' ideas ''of the GOP'' and that stands.

    The GOP will no longer be viewed as the party of obstruction the day they cease to say NO to even their own ideas

    The GOP needs to say yes. Yes, when doing so will suit more than their narrow goals. Saying no all the time at the expense of the national good keeps the GOP in the darkness of petty partanship. Saying yes for the national good, would bring the GOP back into the light of reason and rationality.

    Talking points? If CrusaderFrank came armed with talking points instead of nitwitticisms, he'd at least be taken seriously by a healthy minority here. As it is, even most of the RWL @ USMB shy away from him.
