” But what of his Republican opposition? That opposition, said Obama, has to be forced to embrace his positions:

And I think if you talk privately to Democrats and Republicans, particularly those who have been around for a while, they long for the days when they could socialize and introduce bipartisan legislation and feel productive. So I don’t think the issue is whether or not there are people of goodwill in either party that want to get something done. I think what we really have to do is change some of the incentive structures so that people feel liberated to pursue some common ground. One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.”

  “Today’s unconscionable Washington Post story, which implied without evidence that
Mitt Romney was a homophobic bully to one John Lauber back in his high school days five decades ago, has totally imploded.
   Timed to drop the day after President Obama’s announced embrace of same- sex marriage, the story set the political world atwitter. But earlier today,
Breitbart News reported that the Post had inflated witness testimony. ” 

Could they be any more blatant ?

  Okay , okay . We know George W Bush got a DUI thirty six years ago , we know John McCain was born in Panama seventy odd years ago , we know that Mitt Romney took his dog on vacation with him thirty years ago and now we are informed of the importance of the alleged fact that fifty years ago Mitt was a prankster/bully  but we don’t know about Obama’s college records , his medical records , His editorship of the Harvard Law Review ,  his management of the Annenberg Challenge …… on and on .

 The singular lack of inquisitiveness concerning , what I would term , important details regarding Obama’s suitability to govern compared to the “Oh Dear , Mitt was a bed wetter ” type of investigative tabloid prattling the Republican candidates are subjected to is glaring to say the least .
