Ticket Replay: 'Obama assails Republican foes, urges bipartisan effort': Uh, say what?


During the holiday season, as in years past, The Ticket is republishing some of our favorite items from the previous political year. This story was originally published on Feb. 1, 2010:

Well, this headlined Obama approach to bipartisanship should work well.

Bipartisanship to believe in. Or bipolar bipartisanship? Changing the tone in Washington and all that.

Here's the bipartisan "conversation" they're talking about in Steve Holland's Reuters story over the weekend.

Guess you can take the Chicago machine Democrat out of one-party Chicago, but you can't take....

On the plus side, Obama did say it all very well.

Translation of the President's double-edged message: Bipartisanship is when you agree with me.

But he's not an ideologue, no sirree.

He speaks out of both sides of his mouth.
