Mr. Obama said he “won’t hesitate to embrace a good idea from my friends in the minority party.” But he wants his way. He wants his energy policy enacted along with his jobs bill, his financial regulatory reform and his health care plan.
And if the opposition continues to block his objectives, he said he “won’t hesitate to condemn what I consider to be obstinacy that’s rooted not in substantive disagreement but in political expedience.”
When a sitting president calls for bipartisanship by the opposition – he really means surrender. And if they block his proposals, its “obstinacy” and not political views they hold as strongly as he holds his.

Dems were in the CLEAR majority to get all this liberal special interest sh*t passed. Why haven'tthey passed health care? Why do they continue to blame the GOP? Democrats are their OWN enemy at this point. Obama yet again thinkis he can give another campaign style lecture to the GOP and the American people will support him. The American people (especially independent voters) are waking up.. At this point in the game it's about ACTION for the American People. Not liberal special interest groups and backroom deals!
