GOP senators say Obama off to bad start - CNN.com

John McCain, R-Arizona, said Obama was off to "a bad beginning," "It was a bad beginning because it wasn't what we promised the American people, what President Obama promised the American people, that we would sit down together," McCain told CNN's "State of the Union With John King." What a dick! Sour grapes???

"If this is going to be bipartisanship, the country's screwed," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, told ABC's "This Week." "I know bipartisanship when I see it."Where/when has he seen bipartisanship in the last 8 years?

"This is not 'change we can believe in,' " Graham, a member of the Senate Banking Committee, told ABC. He said Democrats "rammed it through the House" after starting out "with the idea, 'We won -- we write the bill.'Remember? "I am the decider!" "

McCain added, "Republicans were guilty of this kind of behavior.Finally, some truth! I'm not saying that we did things different. DAMN STRAIGHT!But Americans want us to do things differently, and they want us to work together."Why didn't you all think about that in the last 8 years? Americans wanted the same back then too!

Frankly, i don't think there should be any bipartisanship. The GOP should not be consulted and all future bills should pass this way. Even if Obama fucks up real bad, it can't be worse then the damage already done by Bush and the GOP. Even if Obama doesn't do one thing right and as long as he doesn't fuck up this country as much as Bush and his cronies and the GOP did, he will still be a winner!

That is pure bull shit. And if you don't understand that you really shouldn't be posting--here or anywhere. That is just plain stupid!

Don't believe everything you think

Let's address the elephant in the room. These Republicans are so far out of touch with their constituency and reality, they still think they run things. Rove or somebody probably told them when Obama was preaching bipartisanship, it was a sign of weakness, and the Republicans could still pretty much get their way because for the Dems to go it alone would result in these bullshit claims that Obama wanted nothing to do with bipartisan negotiations.

Did the Democrats do enough to be inclusive of and lend consideration to Republican concerns in this package? Who knows, but there's some truth in the statement that we did it the Republican's way for 8 years and that didn't work, so it'd be nice if they could at least consider another tact.

Way too much politics. Fuck the obstructionist Republicans. Fuck the "we won, we're doing it our way" Democrats. Fuck the bailout and everybody who voted for it. Start over. Or better yet, don't. Scrap the old TARP bill, scrap this one, let the chips fall where they may.
