    Obama being a quick study. He tried the adult way of reaching out and treating his adversary with respect. We knew (at least here) that his outstretched hand would be bitten by the R's in their zeal not to help our country, but to hurt our new president. For, that IS their goal, plain and simple. (O was misguided in thinking they wanted to help the nation they serve).

    He now needs to understand that in order to see the behavior he wants to see from the R's, he needs to be on the offensive, CALL them on their bullshit talking points. Make them seem to all America how small minded they really are. He needs to bring them to their knees, and only then will they deal in the manner he envisioned, and then, he can throw THEM a bone to gnaw on, maybe.

    Mr. President, you still have the upper hand because Americans trust you, and they DON'T trust them. Use what you've built, it's the only way.

    Truth is harmonious, lies are discordant.
