"Pick Me, Pick Me!"
"Never mind, I don't wanna do it."
In a classic, chickenshit Republican move, GOP patsy Sen. Judd Gregg campaigned for the job as Obama's Commerce Secretary, got the job, then promptly gave it back.
I think it's been really fascinating to watch how Obama has reached out to the GOP only to have them publicly shit all over his kindly overtures.
There's brilliance in Obama extending the olive branch to the GOP so early in his campaign.
After widely publicized, repeated attempts to reach across the partisan divide, can anyone cite even one example where Republicans have returned gestures of civility or cooperation?
It's wise to get them out of the way early in the President's first term. He tried. They refused to try.
We all saw what happened.
Unilateral relationships don't work. Trust me on that, Mr. President. You did your best, but--dare I use the cliche?
They just weren't that into you.
