Well, folks, I can see that a good number of you really, really don't like Mr. Obama, but let me tell you why I do. He really has tried to work with the Republicans. For one thing, the health care reform act which he signed into law is what the Heritage Foundation--and Republicans in Congress--proposed in response to Mr. Clinton's health care reform bill in the mid-90's. For a second, he--Mr. Obama--went to Capitol Hill and met with the Republicans and tried to establish common ground. Third, he tried to work out a deficit reduction plan with Mr. Boehner last summer. The list goes on. There are many, many more instances of his having reached out. I deeply appreciate these efforts to build--rather than to burn--bridges.
