Obama seeks GOP help on economy; McConnell hopeful
Associated Press ^ | January 27, 2009 | Liz Sidoti

Posted on 01/27/2009 6:12:49 AM PST by Zakeet

President Barack Obama is making good on his promise to hear from Republicans as he pushes for swift passage and bipartisan backing of his massive $825 billion plan intended to jerk the country out of recession.

The unanswered question: whether the new Democratic president will actually listen to GOP concerns about the amount of spending and the tax approach — and modify his proposal accordingly.

With the economy worsening, Obama was making his first trip to Capitol Hill since his swearing-in last week for two private afternoon sessions Tuesday with House and Senate Republicans.

"The goal is to seek their input. He wants to hear their ideas," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said. "If there are good ideas — and I think he assumes there will be — we will look at those ideas."

"I think the president is genuinely serious about this," Gibbs added.

[Snip]

Given the gravity of the economic situation, the stimulus measure is widely expected to pass Congress with bipartisan support. The question is just how many Republicans will side with majority Democrats to pass it; House GOP leader John Boehner has said he couldn't support the measure in its current form and McConnell has been noncommittal.

[Snip]

But the stimulus package presents a huge opportunity for the president, who was elected in part by his call for a new-style politics that emphasizes solutions over partisanship to change the way frequently gridlocked Washington works. Getting a significant number of Republicans to back the measure would be a triumph for Obama that would set a bipartisan tone for his presidency and signal that he values Republican ideas — and is willing to give a little to get a little.

For all his courting of Republicans and promises to listen to their ideas, Obama has made clear that it's his vision that will guide the country. "I won" the election, he told Republicans on Friday.

Hell, he doesn’t need help. When people like Cornyn are voting Aye on everything brought to the floor (Geithner), who needs conservatives? (and yes, I’ve told him as much)

For O, this is quite a difference from last Friday’s position. Perhaps his people took note that his approval rating dropped from 80 to 60 in three days. Very Clintonian of him.

Seeks “GOP helP” sounds a lot like needing a rubber stamp so the rat party doesn’t get holding the bag of sh** all by themselves come 2010.

What he’s looking for is cover so he can say we were all in this together so the blame can be shared when and if it fails.

Fortunately we have Nancy working against BoB to make sure that doesnt happen. We need you Nancy you nutcase to keep republicans straight, in opposition.

I was thinking the same thing.

It went from “I won. F*ck you!” to...”ah well, maybe we should work together”.

Such a rock solid leader these turds have elected.

This is just O’s attempt to make people think that he is following up on his promise. He doesn’t care what the GOP has to say. I hope I’m wrong, but O hasn’t done anything yet to show me that any true American with their eyes open was wrong about him.

8 posts before someone got the right answer - FreeRepublic, we’re slipping!

Seriously, I firmly believe this to be at the root of this ploy. He has no interest in what we think - “I won the election”. He certainly has no intention of integrating anything that even approaches sensibility in this political pay-off.

He just wants to be able to drag down the ‘pubbies when this turns to crap.

Unfortunately I have zero confidence that there is a ‘pubbie in office who gets it...

Curious, as the GOP self destructs Zero may be left with no option but ruling the (former) U.S. much like Stalin ruled a country with only one party. I am going to laugh my rear off as he tries to keep the Repubs alive while choking them to death at the same time. Where did I leave my popcorn and soft drink? Μολὼν λάβε

Give Sen McConnell an earful!
He needs to filibuster the stimulus bill.
Every single Republican should be opposed to this terrible bill.

The simple fix, cut govt spending, cut capital gains taxes and taxes on dividends. It ain’t that complicated. Even this dumbass knows it but it is not his intent to fix the economy. His intent is totalitarian rule.

Mitch is many things, but he is no fool. He’s been there too long, but he’s playing nice while trying to figure out a way to stab the Oh in the back.

Here is another suggestion: prosecute Dodds, Barney Fag, Raines, and the rest of the culpables for destroying the economy.

Hopeful???!!?!?

For God’s sake, you idiot republicans still have not registered the fact in your tiny little brains that democrats ARE NOT our friends, they won’t be nice even if you are, they will screw you at every turn and not even thank you for servicing them.

You idiots are worthless.

Senator Vitter on Fox a few minute ago says this bill is hiding 400 billion for acorn... screw hussein!!!!!!!”

Not surprising to me.

ACORN was a major factor in getting BOZO elected, and he owes them.

With ACORN working at full steam, they could get Arafat elected here if he wasn’t already dead.

The figure has been corrected to 4 BILLION, but ACORN should not get a single penny.

I would like to see 4$ billion spent to investigate ACORN and remove them from the American landscape.

Obama seeks GOP help (to steal our money, destroy the economy and hold all the peons hostage).

There fixed the headline.

Complicated? No. But the hard part is getting 50 senators to agree.

Call your senators and Congressman to get them to oppose the stimulus bill.

If the republicans had the sense of a gaggle of geese they would vote against this corruption and offer up a solution.

This is a stimulus package for Democrat control for many years to come. zer0 said, WE need this passed or WE might lose and HE might not get re-elected. That's what this is all about, that and pay back for people that helped buy him the presidency. IT MUST NOT PASS!! I'm glad to see we have finally began to wake up and fight. We need to fight this vigorously and in great numbers.
