« Fred Barnes: Hack | Main | Walsh smears GOP dissent as "traitorous" »

December 31, 2009


IMHO Obama's effort to promote bipartisanship was insincere or inept. He allowed Congress to write a "Stimulus" bill that gave Democratic districts nearly twice as much stimulus money as Republican districts -- and the cash has been awarded without regard to how badly an area was suffering from job losses or income problems. The Health "Reform" included no Republican ideas, such as tort reform. Also, both bills had loads of pork for Democratic special interests.

By comparison, George W. Bush began by appointing two Democratic judges who had been put forward by Clinton and held up by a Republican Senate. He wrote and passed No Child Left Behind jointly with Sen. Kennedy. Also, unlike Obama, he didn't keep blaming his predecessor for everything that went wrong.
