So where's the "change"?

The Obama administration's fixation on bipartisanship and on reaching out to the right has allowed business-as-usual to prevail in Washington to a depressing degree. I've already linked to Oliver Willis on this topic; Michael Boh, Reconstitution 2.0, Dissenting Justice, and Middle of Nowhere have more, while Nancy takes a more optimistic view (great picture too!) and Barney Frank shows how it's done.

I of all people shouldnt laugh at this...but when I seen the title of this post I busted a gut almost! :)

No .... all caca aside...I been very supportive of Obama, even before he got the dem nomination, I think alot like this guy on certain thing's...especially on the bipartisan issue. But to be frank (not Barney)... I agree ... that this has been attempted as far as reaching out...and these republican's have really been not only delusional...and spreading fabricated rubbish like the Death Panel crap...and relentlessly biting every goddamn hand that reaches out to them, and it's time now to implement other measure's. I can only hope also that President Obama...please see that this is not going to work...and it's basically pissing in the wind.The GOP is on a obvious path of self destruction as well...why? I havent the faintest...it is absolutely nutty...what they have been displaying considering how much in the hole they already are. I was watching Barney Frank as that whole episode went down... and he was right on the money with that. Now Obama is Hitler? I dont recall any President in my life having so many title's.

Thanx .............

I've gone over the edge as they say. I'm ready for all out warfare. They have PUSHED US TOO FAR. If they want war, I say let's give them one. I'm sick and tired of playing games with those two-faced lying shit-for-brains on the right.

It's time the Democrats start playing hard and dirty. We need to DUMP HARRY REID, get NEW Senate leaders, Pelosi and Rahm need to whip those dogs into shape, and we all have to start calling the GOP what they really are - GREEDY, BOUGHT-AND-PAID-FOR, LYING, UNAMERICAN POLITICAL SCUM! We need to TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT THEM!

Okay, maybe I am a little angry, but I think AT LEAST they need to get more vocal (like my new hero Barney Frank), more HONEST, and more RAMBO on their asses!!!

Back when the Republicans controlled the Presidency and both Houses, they never forgot who was boss and they never let anyone else forget. We should be the same way.

Thanks for the mention again, Infidel.

This reform charade is sure interesting. One would think it's a brain surgery (it's totally no pun. OK, maybe a little.)

I've had it with the Rushpubliscums, who now believe that the filibuster should extend to 70-80 Senators. These are a bunch of petulant crybabies who hate election results when they go any way but the way they see things. Does anyone but me remember how the moronic monkey acted like he had a 99% mandate when he couldn't even get the most votes?

When they're down to one Senator (from Utah, no doubt), they'll want it to be unanimous.....
