” 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.”

  “I am sure you noticed that President Obama complains a lot. ”

  “Let’s be frank: He’s a whiner. ”

  ” Whining, as defined by expert —
the therapists, spouses, co-
workers and others who have to
listen to it — is chronic
complaining, a pattern of negative
communication. It brings down
the mood of everyone within
earshot. It can hold whiners back
at work and keep them stuck in a
problem, rather than working to
identify a solution. It can be toxic
to relationships. ”
