Apparently, Mr Obama would now like to talk to to Republicans about health care. The man is really a laugh riot. After trying to ram a highly divisive, partisan health bill through the senate and failing, Mr. Obama would like a televised bipartisan summit for half a day to break the impasse.
I suspect you are going to need more than half a day, Mr. President.
I also suspect that you should have held bipartisan talks right up front instead of using your majority to ram through a health bill that is clearly unpalatable to virtually all republicans. You might have come up with something most people could have lived with. Instead you have nothing except a plan for a bit more showmanship.
Unfortunately, Mr. Obama, life is somewhat more complex than television appearances, isn’t it?
