Obama: a divider not a uniter! by Emerald City Elephant

Barack Obama

Asked in an interview by the Associated Press which Republicans he would reach across the aisle to work with as president, Barack Obama named Senators Richard Lugar, John Warner, and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.

According to the AP, Obama said the problem with Washington DC is that President Bush has created a partisan atmosphere.

Uh huh.

“There are some very capable Republicans who I have a great deal of respect for,” Obama said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Some? That’s right, apparently the rookie from Illinois thinks three of his 251 Republican congressional colleagues are capable and worthy of respect. How gracious of you Senator Obama. Thanks!

So when asked which Republicans he will work with, Obama names only three senators, zero represenatives (apparently nobody told the greenhorn cum leader-of-the-free-world-wannabe that the President of the United States of America is generally expected to work with both houses of congress), and we’re supposed to accept that its because President Bush is partisan? The man who invited Ted Kennedy over for movies and pop corn? The man Obama’s fellow Democrats call an incompetent, miserable failure and a liar?

Senator Obama—who has yet to break party ranks on a single vote—can only name three men he’d work with, but Bush is partisan?

uh. yeeaah. Can I interest you in a lovely Minnesotan bridge that’s just come up for sale?
