No matter what anyone from the other side does, the Dems contonue to push their agenda, without compromise - all the while, expecting the other side to either let them do so (when the Dems are in charge), or with the expectation that the other side will compromise and let them (the Dems) move their agenda forward.

    Bi-partisanship, to a Dem, is to let the Dems have what they want.

    (Note that the use of the term "The Dems" is general. There are, of course, specific exceptiions that do nothing to disprove the rule)

    That's a pretty sweeping indictment of "democrats."
    And well-deserved at that.

    Exactly. It's funny how the slapnut liberals critisized Bush every minute of everyday. Now they're trying to defend Obama and his more of the same.

    Same Iraq policy. Same Afghanistan policy. Gitmo is alive & well. Same slapnuts "fixing" the economy.

    Wait, there is some change.

    Terrorist is now Man made disaster

    Oh, and they're spending $30 million to save the habitat of the salt marsh harvest mouse.

    Yep, the slapnut liberals saved that from foreclosure

    Bush doesn't need to attack Obama. The community organizer is Epic Fail all by himself, as his numbers indicate.

    Bush would have done this regardless of how his Presidency panned out. He is a principled man, that cannot be denied, unless, of course, you're a leftist partisan.

    My first sentence in my prior post in here was a joke, by the way.

    I just realized the insult you just gave to Dick Cheney. Priceless.
    You and Lerxst have to go back and find some game.

    I am a partisan.
    Conservative.

    Though a partisan, I'm not blind or hyper.
    Proof?
    I've agreed with Obama on one issue, and he's been in office 60 days.
    If I were hyperpartisan or blind I would have ignored the issue.

    And youz guyz?
    Did you or Lerxst agree with Bush in his last 7-years?
    Once?

    As for Cheney, you probably got all excited at the prospect of him and his comments.
    Correct?
    Let's see, Bush was President. He conforms to unwritten protocol.
    Honor.
    The Clintons need it written in stone because they have no honor.

    As for Cheney, he could still be president.
    Which makes him an active political player.

    Like Algore.
    Though he's a twit of impressive proportions, we never said he was trashing tradition by speaking.
    He was not the president.

    Good try guys... Lerxst and aps.
    Try, try again.

    Everything out of the Obama's mouths, regarding Bush and his family, and how the transition was handled seemed to implicate this. Bush understands(more than any jackass here, including myself) the actual duties and stresses of the office. He also knows whats going on, more than anybody here and he understands that him mouthing off about his differences with Obama, will not be productive for this country, or Obama's administration in any way.

    There is no game needed here, you are absolutely hyper partisan.

    Though a partisan, I'm not blind or hyper.
    You absolutely are.

    Proof?
    Your posting history here is fairly sufficient.
    I've agreed with Obama on one issue, and he's been in office 60 days.
    If I were hyperpartisan or blind I would have ignored the issue.
    Not necessarily.
    And youz guyz?
    Did you or Lerxst agree with Bush in his last 7-years?
    Once?
    I voted for Bush in his first election and basically towed the party line for the first few years of his Presidency. Bashing Bush or not bashing Bush is not the definition of partisanship or hyper partisanship.

    Good try guys... Lerxst and aps.
    Try, try again.
    Yeah, okay.

    I will say this right now - Thank you, Mr. President, for choosing to put partisan politics aside, and for choosing the well being of America over hackery. Rush Limbaugh could learn a thing or 100 from you. If you had been like this during your presidency, instead of the "my way or the highway" approach you ended up taking, I believe things would be much different now. But hindsight is 20/20, so I will end this post in a very simple way, by saying "Well done". And yes, you ARE a patriot, Mr. President.

    Bush has always been "that way"; you just refused to see it in your highly emotional anti-war/anti-Bush state of mind.

    Suggesting that Bush had a "my way or the highway" approach requires willing denial or the suspension of reality.

    Bush had the most bi-partisan policies of any President in recent memory; yet you falsely claim he shoved his legislation down everyone's throat.

    Do me a favor; show me something that was "my way or the highway?" It should be amusing watching you desperately dredge something up from the dark recesses of the silly blogs you inhabit.
