    You could prove me wrong by providing a link though.
    You have a horrible memory. Harshaw beat me to the links.

    Great, I've been proved wrong... I don't find it such an ego shattering event that I can't admit it... like some. Regardless, the main comment was "it shows that Bush was far more willing to talk with Dems about bills and incorporate their ideas..."

    Which is a load of crap.

    Gee, I just went through and did a quick look at the links you provided. Only one of them was before the Dems took majority and that one was a WALL STREET JOURNAL propaganda piece that actually says that Portman appealed to the dems on Bush's behalf... So, basically, more deceit from you. But then, should we have expected more from you?

    How hard was that?
    LOL...yeah, after the cons got their butt handed to them in the '06 elections, they decided they needed to work with the dems.

    Notice the dates of the articles.

    1st link
    January 05, 2007

    After Republicans’ resounding defeat in the fall election, Bush and his lieutenants are paying attention to Democratic power brokers they had all but ignored for years.
    2nd link
    1/24/07

    Facing a Democratic-controlled - and hostile - Congress for the first time, a politically weak President George W. Bush bowed to political reality in his State of the Union address last night by advancing domestic policies that he hoped might win bipartisan support.
    3rd link
    January 4, 2007

    President Bush greeted the incoming Democratic leadership of Congress on Wednesday with a message of bipartisanship.

    But he also sent another message: I’m still the guy with the big plane, the big office (the oval one) and the presidential seal.
    4th link
    November 9, 2006

    Democrats tonight control both houses of Congress for the first time in more than a decade.
    [...]
    Earlier in the day, President Bush called for a new bipartisan tone in Washington.
    5th link
    LOL...who doesn't say 'we can all get along' in a victory speech.
    11/4/04
    Bush Thanks Supporters, Reaches Out To Democrats In Victory Speech
    [...]
    When asked if the two could work together after such a divisive campaign, the President's press secretary insisted 'absolutely.'
    6Th link
    After the first election. It's the headline of an article.
    In the article, Bush doesn't say or actually do anything to reach out to Democrats.
    Bush reaches out to Democrats
    7th link
    December 2, 2005

    President Bush is starting to embrace a different political strategy for getting trade agreements through Congress: bipartisanship.
    [...]
    As on many issues, the White House didn’t go out of its way to seek backing from the opposition party, especially early on.
    [...]
    Now, in maneuvering on Capitol Hill this fall, the politically weakened administration has taken steps to repair tattered relations...

    Amusement...

    It's still an instance -- you claimed there were none. Besides, it was just the first page of hits. I didn't screen them for when they were done.

    You're just moving the goalpoasts. You didn't specify these conditions in your challenge.


    and that one was a WALL STREET JOURNAL propaganda piece that actually says that Portman appealed to the dems on Bush's behalf...
    Yeah, and the comparison was about Pelosi/Reid's "bipartisanship."


    So, basically, more deceit from you. But then, should we have expected more from you?
    No deceit. But I figured you'd find a way to dismiss.
