Can the White House really be seeing things this way?Paul West and Christi Parsons perform their duty as
As the time fast approaches when the Republicans will be running the House and letting the crazy run amok, here's the anonymous official's brilliant "candid" observation:
Reporting from Washington — President Obama's year-end deal-cutting with Republicans, which produced an important compromise on extending George W. Bush-era tax cuts, has come to represent what White House officials see as a successful template for the president's role on other issues heading into a contentious 2011.So much for that, hey, we're really, really going to fight the Republicans when they try to renew the billionaires' tax subsidy. The White House thinks this is a wonderful way to do business!
This "candid" anonymous official is promoting the virtues of sacred Bipartisanship which for some reason they seem to actually think voters care about:
Obama tried to run as an outsider in 2008. But once he was in office, his image as a different kind of politician "took some hits," according to the senior administration official, who requested anonymity to provide a more candid assessment of the president's standing.But David Broder, the prophet of Bipartisanship (for Democrats) will be very happy to hear this.
