President Obama went to the Republican retreat today. He stood there, took their questions (including a really stupid blathering from TN Congressperson Marsha Blackman), and fed them some humble pie. It was televised on CNN and several Republicans are complaining that was a big mistake.
Obama stands and delivers.
The spin started before Obama was even finished. The Republicans kept trying to end it saying, "Mr. President, We're sure you have other commitments."
"Nah, I'm having fun," said Barack Obama.
I found it very heartening that our President took the initiative by seeking out constructive dialogue with his political opponents. Constructive dialogue has been sorely missing in our public arena, contributing to general public unhappiness with any- and everything about our common life. Thank you, Mr. Obama!ReplyDelete
