    He has a gorgeous smile and his wife has "great arms"

    LMAO, Obamamen aren't allowed to say "bipartisan" anymore unless there's a "not" in front as Obama is running about the most partisan administration ever. Pelosi isn't even allowing Republican proposals to be debated then Obama accuses them of having no proposals of their own. At this time 8 years ago Bush and Ted Kennedy were working together - at least Bush TRIED. Obama and Pelosi aren't socialists; they're dictators.

    It makes ME think deja vu all over again. Let's count how many Bush people remain in Obama's admin, nevermind the obvious hiring from a company that he just publicly bashed not too long ago for being evil lol. Too bad the transparent White House refuses to comment.

    Dictator?? 7.9 years of hysteria and hyperbole, something to look forward to... Bush displayed wonderful bipartisanship for his 8 years, when I think about it brings back feelings of all warm and fuzzy.

    Didja hear about the budget proposal put forth by the righties yesterday, they forgot the numbers... guess have to guess.

    I don't see any problem hiring an individual from AIG. That company is huge and the person was in two other administrations which happened to be Republican. If this individual received a bonus from AIG, then I would have a problem with it.

    At this point in his administration Bush was trying for bi-partisanship. Remember his work with Kennedy ? Obama is far and away more partisan than Bush was.

    As I have said, I'm no fan of Bush but traitor is just silly. And Obama is BY FAR the most partisan President we've had since I've been in this country (1980).

    You do realize that the spineless Democrats bent over backwards to compromise with Bush right. From the "War on Terror" to "No Child Left Behind" they pretty much sacrificed all of their oppositional credibility to be relevant.

    The Republicans are doing nothing to work with Obama. All they are doing is trying to be opportunistic and refusing to give an inch, hoping his stimulus fails so they can say they were right and regain power.

    After FDR's New Deal was perceived as successful the Republicans lost power for nearly 20 years. They know this and they don't want it to happen again.

    If I were you I'd save your criticism for a time when it has some substance, that way you won't just come off batty like you are now, a little over a month and a half into his term, and calling him a "dictator."

    Not buying it. The Republicans offered their own stimulus which wasn't even presented by Pelosi and then Obama accused them of wanting to do nothing - after Granny shut them down. The Republicans would work with Obama if he and Granny would meet them in the middle but they won't - and that includes the plan to push cap and trade and health care through with only 50 votes; although cap and trade is getting so unpopular we may be saved from that.

    I would have liked him to look at it and compromise with it - but at least ACKNOWLEDGE it. Anyway, I don't know why you are arguing that he's being partisan, you should be happy about it as you're a Democrat.

    I'm not a Democrat and I don't give a damn about bipartisanship. It makes no sense to compromise if the two sides have completely opposite views on what to do. If Obama thinks huge deficit spending is the answer, then compromising with those that think very little spending is the answer doesn't make much sense does it? My sense is that the economists that believe in his strategy don't think it's worth it to half ass it. You either have to spend like crazy or not spend at all, in their view.

    The last two people I've voted for are Bernie Sanders (went to school in VT.) and Ralph Nader. I could give a **** about Democrats only that they're a less evil version of Republicans.

    What I tried to say is the Republicans had their own stimulus bill. After that in his primetime press conference (the first one not last week's), Obama said the Republicans want to do nothing. That makes him a partisan liar. Had he said the Republican plan sucked - fine - but he said they wanted to do nothing after they presented their own plan. So they clearly wanted to do something.

    The Republican plan was just a series of tax cuts. That's all it was, very close to doing nothing. All they were doing was creating a "plan" they knew he couldn't compromise with so they can say "we tried but he ignored us" if the economy doesn't rebound.

    By the way, you're talking about the MAIN issue of Obama's first term. This is what the War on Terror was to Bush. You didn't see him doing much compromising on that did you?

    It was an alternative way of solving the problem, it wasn't 'nothing'. It was just not the massive expansion of government that obama lusts after. Why di he lie? rather than having the guts to say he rejeccted their approach
