My conservative friends (on Facebook) have whined and moaned about the conservative point of view “not being invited to the table” on healthcare legislation. So the President extends a personal invitation and this is the response:
GOP cool to Obama call for two-party health talks – Yahoo! News
But House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said his earlier efforts to reach out to Republicans “did not result in any serious follow through to work together in a bipartisan fashion.”
My guess is that the GOP doesn’t want to be on TV with the President again after the ass-whooping he gave them in the live Q&A a couple of weeks ago (yes, I know I’m very very very late to the game on this amazing video):
If you haven’t watched this, you should. Regardless of your views about the President or the GOP. AMAZING political history being made with TV cameras rolling. Listen to how the President responds. Calm. Measured. Knows his stuff. The GOP, in my opinion, looks outplayed and they are showing that they are sore losers, can’t govern, can’t (or are unwilling to) solve problems and that they aren’t bipartisan in the least. Their talk of bipartisan work can only be called one thing: lies.
I’d love it if Palin was the GOP nominee against Obama. None of her crib notes would help against a smarter foe (sorry I cannot get the clip to wait for a user to initiate the playing of it):
Above video from this post on Foxnews.com. Unfortunately the above video doesn’t address her amateur crib notes. This one shows Fox “News” “anchors” helping the “Palin is just folksy” narrative. It’s painful:
Or her hypocrisy around use of the word “retard”. Dems do it: they should resign. Rush Limbaugh does it: he was just joking:
Also. Her reality is clearly not The Reality.
GOP, when you gonna give it up and actually govern?
