View Diary: Obama admits he's already conceded more than warranted (360 comments)

  •  The GOP was weakened and in disarray in 2008 (5+ / 0-)

    ... right after Obama won then ...

    ... until, instead of throwing them an anchor, he went out of his way to help rehabilitate and strengthen them, including them in every discussion and saying that too they were "a respected party with good ideas worth listening to."

    And, of course, the newly strengthened and included GOP then went on to stab him in the back at every opportunity.

    And ... he's doing it again.

      "a respected party with good ideas worth listening to."
      No matter how unworkable those ideas have proven to be. Privatization, supply-side economics--these ideas have broken down in the test of time.

      Democrats can do better than re-tread GOP ideas.
