White House making voodoo doll that looks like CBS correspondent Mark Knoller?

Blasphemy! Heresy! Sacrilege!

CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller actually worked up the courage to speak the truth about President Obama’s “outreach” to Republicans, observing that while the President says he wants bipartisan solutions, what he really wants is Republican surrender.

Mr. Obama said he “won’t hesitate to embrace a good idea from my friends in the minority party.” But he wants his way. He wants his energy policy enacted along with his jobs bill, his financial regulatory reform and his health care plan.

And if the opposition continues to block his objectives, he said he “won’t hesitate to condemn what I consider to be obstinacy that’s rooted not in substantive disagreement but in political expedience.”

When a sitting president calls for bipartisanship by the opposition – he really means surrender. And if they block his proposals, its “obstinacy” and not political views they hold as strongly as he holds his.

This, of course, begs that question, why shouldn’t Obama expect them to surrender? The Republican party has a long, proud history of capitulation that makes them the envy of Frenchmen everywhere.

We can only hope that this time will be different.

Well, he is at least being truthful. Obama wants to rule and he doesn’t tolerate dissent. Yet when the show was in the other foot he cried and moaned I am sure that the party and President in power were not crossing the aisle and allowing for patriotic dissent.
