The Obama administration has invited the media to focus on Republicans rather than the majority because the quest for "bipartisanship" has empowered them to obstruct.
The President should define what the deal will be and tell Republicans to buy in or sit it out.
Right now, they are using the media to try to force changes to a Stimulus Plan they haven't even committed to vote for.
Win/Lose in terms of our priorities we should at least have a good plan.
The Republicans should not be in the news, they shouldn't be making news, they should be quietly hoping to shape legislation as best they can.
We need to ratchet back this talk of bipartisanship and institute a real working plan that forces Republicans to abandon their obstructionism and join in or banish them to their electoral minority status.
