Dance with the One Who “Brung” You

Being bipartisan is like dancing the tango, it takes two. So far Obama has been dancing all by himself with his Republican partners — they get gussied up, smile at him, look like they’re having fun and then — they go back to the Republican Club and plot against him. It’s like the Rick Warren thing, when people were saying Obama had to have a brilliant strategy behind his controversial move. What was it? So now I’m beginning to wonder if there is any brilliance behind any of these “bipartisan” decisions, for instance Gregg at Commerce. You can keep your enemies so close that your friends can’t get to you. And right now Obama needs friends because as much as he wants to dance “the bipartisan” he’s dancing all by himself. I fear his friends will abandon him and his opponents will destroy him.
