On this morning's "roundtable" discussion on WAMC radio (NPR affiliate in upstate NY, VT and Western Mass), one of the panelists argued that President Obama has never tried to reach out to Republicans and if he had they would have been more likely to work with him (not against him). She seemed peeved, as most conservatives do, that Obama didn't invite Rethugs to dinner more often or schedule more playdates for the kids or something. When one of the other panelists attempted to challenge her view, she exclaimed "Where is the evidence ?!?!." Getting no answer in return she continued to trot out the "both sides are to blame" BS until the segment mercifully ended.
I obtained her email address and promised I would send her the evidence she seeks as well as evidence of Republican plans to obstruct Obama at all costs beginning with the Inauguration day meeting in 2009.
As I have a dissertation to write, I thought I would crowdsource this one and see if anyone can help with some links to evidence of Obama's attempts at bipartisanship. I can remember a meeting with the entire Republican House conference in 2010, as well as passing their entire god-damned Healthcare bill, extending the Bush tax-cuts, ect. There's also the Gingrich admission about the 2009 meeting and McConnell's famous "one term president" line.
Lets try to keep this civil. I don't want any links about how they are obstructing him because he is the black antichrist.
