Incoming chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel after his meeting with Senate Republicans:
“The challenges facing the country require that people of both parties work together to solve those problems. I told them that I welcome their ideas, be that in their area of education, health care, taxes, energy policy, national security. Give us those ideas, because we are formulating what we’re going to do in the Obama administration.”
Definitely sounds to me like he’s “a vicious graceless partisan: narrow, hectic, unremittingly aggressive, vulgar, and impatient.” So much so that Nevada Senator and GOP Policy Committee chairman John Ensign said Emanuel displayed
“a really good attitude about wanting to work with us…He gave us all his personal cell phone. He said he promised to get back us on issues within 24 hours…His words were basically ‘this is not a head-fake on bipartisanship. This is real.’ They really want to work in a bipartisan fashion and it’s not about just saying it, they actually plan on doing it. Those are exactly the right words to use.”
Dick, dick, dick. Lastly, Texas Senator and incoming National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman John Cornyn said of Emanuel:
“He thought it was important enough to come over and spend an hour with us. [That] speaks volumes, more than just what he said.”
Could it be that Obama does in fact intend to keep his campaign promise to govern in a bipartisan manner? Might he have actually been telling the truth? Is it possible BHO is not a terror-loving terrorist? The GOP leadership seems to be changing its tune. How about you?

I’m still pissed over that superbowl the Titans lost by 2 inches several years ago.
Favre will lead the Jets to a win over Tennessee and onto the Super Bowl!!!
