Outreach Assholery



Here's new information on Obama's lack of attempts at outreach to Congressional R leaders:


WASHINGTON — For all the attention to President Obama’s new campaign of outreach to Republicans, it was four months ago — on the eve of bipartisan budget talks — that he secretly invited five of them to the White House for a movie screening with the stars of “Lincoln,” the film about that president’s courtship of Congress to pass a significant measure. 
None accepted.
It says something about the state of political animus around there, doesn't it, that he had to reach out "secretly." But there's no mystery in knowing who the real assholes are.
