McCain: Obama Fails To Be Bipartisan Leader
KPHO CBS 5 Phoenix, Ariz. ^ | 2009-08-02

WASHINGTON -- Sen. John McCain said Sunday President Barack Obama has failed in his effort to be a bipartisan leader.

McCain, who lost the election to Obama last year, says the success of Obama's initiatives in Congress shouldn't be mistaken for bipartisanship.

As one example, McCain said the health care bill was written without Republican input.

McCain said that while Obama has managed to pick off a few Republican votes, the president has failed to change the partisan climate in Washington as he said he wanted.

Obozo NEVER had any thought of being an bipartisan leader.

It was, is and always will be about HIM and only HIM.

Dayam, John, did you really expect anything different, while you were kissing those liberal butts?

Bipartisanship has different meanings for each party.
For Republicans it means both parties work together and reach a conclusion that is good for the country. For Democrats it means Republicans cave and do whatever the Democrats want.

McCain is a Moron!
Why should Obama be a “bipartisan leader” when McCain is out there telling what a great job Obama is doing?

He is not a leader at all, of anything worthwhile. He is a complete 100% disaster and failure for America and Americans.

McCain is a loser like his dad. He’s not worth reading about because he’s the reason we are in this damn boat.

If he had done his job we supported him for this BIRTHCERTIFICATE would have come out earlier. I hope people enjoy being manipulated by this family.

I gotta say, it was a pretty dang funny election campaign. Obama, the guy whose whole history (what there was of it) was partisan, campaigned as a bipartisan. Okay, so politicians misrepresent things. What a news flash. The amazing part was the way so many millions of Americans actually BOUGHT IT!!! It's weird, wild stuff to figure out.

Meanwhile, McCain, a man so bipartisan as to make Republicans and conservatives apoplectic, was successfuly portrayed by Obama's campaign (with help from his fawning media) as a partisan hack. The amazing part was that so many millions of America BOUGHT IT!!! It's weird, wild stuff to figure out.

It's no puzzle to me why liberals supported Obama. Makes perfect sense. But the fact that so many moderates and self proclaimed conservatives did so, believing Obama to be something besides a liberal, remains truly mind boggling.

What's with all of the McCain stories lately?

Is John running cover for 0bama, or just trying to be relevant?

Whatever the reason, the media doesn't put out so many stories like this without a hidden agenda. I am suspicious...

McShame has learned nothing about the man currently occupying the WH now he's shocked that Zer0 isn't more bipartisan?.

While he shut down his campaign to vote on TARP, Barry went right on trashing him, while he REAMED conservatives out for calling Barry by his full name (The one that MIGHT even appear on his birth certificate if we ever saw it), 0bama never backed down or called off the attacks on Sarah Palin, and when 0bama flat out lied during the debates, there was McLame shuffling around the stage like an Alzheimer's patient instead of calling him on his “misstatements”. I swear if I heard one more “my friends” during that campaign I was going to apply for Canadian citizenship just so I wouldn't have to see anymore of that pathetic excuse for a campaign.

To seek compromise with these leftists is folly. The Congressional leadership is hell bent on enacting national health care and a few cosmetic “bipartisan” changes will not make this 1,000 monstrosity any more acceptable.

But..it will be bipartisan when John McCain supports Obama when it comes to comprehensive immigration reform (aka amnesty).
