    Obama Reaches Out for McCain’s Counsel

    Obama Reaches Out for McCain’s Counsel

    Mr. McCain, meanwhile, has told colleagues “that many of these appointments he would have made himself,” said Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican and a close McCain friend.

    God forbid that our elected officials work in a bipartisan manner to actually get things done.

    That was my exact sentiment. Bush did nothing but polarize not only the parties, but also the American people.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Meh, if I wanted Obama could have voted McCain and got the same thing.


    This is why he lost. Just as big government as Obama....

    I wonder :

    If Obama had actually said the opposite and said 'I won't work with McCain or the Republicans, would the Reverend come on DP and say something along the lines of :

    'Is this the change you wanted?'

    Nope. I wouldn't. I know he is a liberal, and I expect him to do his liberal thing. If he said he wouldn't work with McCain, I would be more than fine with it.


    Sorry.

    Or it could be that Obama actually ran a better campaign then McCain on every front.

    McCain by his own admission on winning the nomination of the Republican party thanked "open minded democrats".

    It's no surprise to see one Liberal reaching out to another.

    Hey Middleground:

    I find it funny that the Libs lose control of Congress for the first time in 40-years... and then the political process since then has never been more "polarized".

    LOL... you folks really have to get a grip. Bush got the approval from Congress to take action in Iraq, and then your party goes on the warpath not against our terrorist enemies but Bush and the troops... against their own President during a war, and when times got rough.

    These people and their supporters are about as low as the come. They used a war they voted for to gain political points.

    But it was Bush that was the one that polarized. I wish he'd been brutal to your side, but he wasn't. He let you folks and your media propagandists smack him at every turn. He should have come out and smacked back, and hard. He should have made the left look like the disgraceful, treasonous bunch of back stabbers they were.

    He didn't... but he was the polarizer.
    Go figure.

    I think the left had just as much a polarizing effect as anything Bush did.
