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.
LOL...yeah, after the cons got their butt handed to them in the '06 elections, they decided they needed to work with the dems.Originally Posted by Harshaw

After Republicansí resounding defeat in the fall election, Bush and his lieutenants are paying attention to Democratic power brokers they had all but ignored for years.
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.

President Bush greeted the incoming Democratic leadership of Congress on Wednesday with a message of bipartisanship.
But he also sent another message: Iím still the guy with the big plane, the big office (the oval one) and the presidential seal.

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.
LOL...who doesn't say 'we can all get along' in a victory speech.

When asked if the two could work together after such a divisive campaign, the President's press secretary insisted 'absolutely.'
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.

President Bush is starting to embrace a different political strategy for getting trade agreements through Congress: bipartisanship.
As on many issues, the White House didnít 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...
ďIím worried that I will be the last Republican president.Ē - George W. Bush
You're just moving the goalpoasts. You didn't specify these conditions in your challenge.
Yeah, and the comparison was about Pelosi/Reid's "bipartisanship."and that one was a WALL STREET JOURNAL propaganda piece that actually says that Portman appealed to the dems on Bush's behalf...
No deceit. But I figured you'd find a way to dismiss.So, basically, more deceit from you. But then, should we have expected more from you?
