3. First: most people want the parties to work together. That is why Obama promotes bipartisanship
Edited on Thu Jan-06-11 01:10 PM by emulatorloo
On the other hand he did call them out on obstructionism at town halls etc. That stuff does not get reported on the cable news outlets.

The surrogates (Dem Sens Like Sherrod Brown and Reps like Weiner) are the ones who are to call the Republicans out for their obstructionism,

It is difficult because none of the media outlets other than MSNBC allow Democrats to talk and complete a sentence

Republicans were quite good at messaging - Creating the gridlock, but pointing the finger at Obama. That was pretty much their strategy - FUCK UP EVERTHING and then blame Obama and the Democrats. It worked well for them in 2010 elections.
