17. Didn't people elect him to be inclusive, etc.? I think Obama has been
making more than admirable efforts at bipartisanship and making steps to the United States of America (not red states, blue states, Repub, Dem, black, white, etc. ... you know the rest).

I wouldn't call that caving, I would call that living up to what he said he'd do and doing it.

The fact that he's being met with unproductive and self-serving (though destructive for ALL of us, in my view) is a shame, but that's the responsibility of those who are demanding it...

I don't think Obama has been sucking up, I think he's done his best to create a new atmosphere and these guys have proven they're not interested in doing things differently. When it's all about control, it's on the wrong path.

They're wrong, not Obama. Not in my opinion, anyway...
