So, KPT Times-News has this enlightening article about Roe and Corker’s response to Obama’s healthcare address. My favorite part is this:
Roe, a first-term lawmaker who has been doing a number of TV network interviews lately on health care reform, said he still wants to have a meeting with the president. “He needs to sit down on a bipartisan basis, which he has not done,” Roe said of Obama
So, let me get this straight: when Republicans refuse to give on an issue, Obama/Dems are being partisan for disagreeing. When Obama/Dems refuse to budge on an issue, they are being partisan for not giving into the Republicans. Thanks for clearing that up, Dr. Roe. I was pretty sure that bipartisanship meant working together. Now I know that it means Obama is supposed to take time to sit down with a “freshman” Rep who has made it abundantly clear that he will never support the President’s plan. If you aren’t willing to consider a public option under ANY circumstances, then what do you have to talk about?
