Why is it that Obama is 100% against bipartisanship? He is trying to bulldoze the healthcare bill through. The bill has only partisan support. It has BIPARTISAN OPPOSITION. The only thing he is trying to do is appease his lunatic fringe supporters who want to see ANYTHING pass just so Obama can claim a victory. It is sad that even his own party is bright enough to see how horrible the bills are. But he doesn't care. Its not about results, its about winning for his massive ego.

What do you think of Obama's decision to stand with the partisan fringe while giving the finger to the bipartisan opposition?

Obama and bitartisanship: not two words ever used in the same sentence unless it is the beginning of a fairy tale.

This bill is not about anything other than laying the foundation for the collapse of the Republic and the inception of the US as a Social Democracy.

Bipartisanship? The Republicans would have none of it, even if the Democrats tried their hardest to promote it. Bipartisanship is said, not meant, by both conservatives and liberals.

He asked for Republican input, only to be shunned. The way they've carried themselves (no to everything), it's a shame Obama even asks for input from them anymore.

As a very liberal Democrat, my problem with Obama is that he is too afraid of aggrivating the conservatives and Republicans... Basically he is getting nothing accomplished because he's piddle paddling around trying to please everyone. Why doesn't he do what Bush did and just push his own agenda and not give a dam* if he upsets the opposing political side? Bush clearly was a liberals worst nightmare, but he did what he wanted and passed a lot of his agenda... wars, tax cuts for the wealthy, etc

Obama has an agenda but he's basically riding it out and not getting anything accomplished because he's too worried about the Republicans and conservatives... and nothing is changing... wasn't that his big platform??? CHANGE?

Personally I don't think at this moment in time, Obama needs to be bipartisan. Bush wasn't bipartisan AT ALL, and I feel like we need to counteract Bush's far right policies with some far left policies to find a good middle of the road.... TRUE bipartisanship.

Again... this is why I voted for Hillary in the primary.

Wish the whole Obama Presidency was a fairy tale, but unlike a dream, he is what we are stuck with, wish this was a fairy tale, then we could wake up from the nite mare.

BZZZZ WRONG... Republicans provided input, the latest bill had nearly 150 amendments which included Republican input.. The problem is what isnt in the bill, the problem is what is there.. Everything and anything...

Dont ask them for input, then whine about not getting their support. Thats rather humorous that you attempted to pass that one off..

Remember when Obama on election night told us he was going to work to how was it he put it earn the respect and votes of those that didnt vote for him


Guess he didnt mean that. Obama only wants it to appear hes working with republicans from behind locked doors

Oh please they sent him their ideas only to go out and say they had no ideas and was the party of no. Then when they had that meeting and they asked Obama to attend did he admit hes read their ideas. How does he read something they didnt offer

Hate to tell you majority of the country is saying no to what Obama and democrats are doing. So for this time republicans are actually doing their job and doing what the country wants
