Stupid Headline of the Day

Obama Accused of Rarely Reaching Out to GOP

"If there's one public official who has consistently put his country ahead of his party, working across party lines to get things done in Washington, it is John McCain," Lieberman said in an interview with ABC News. "It's not Barack Obama, with all respect."
"Sen. Obama has no record that I can see of taking on positions that are held by a lot of people within his own party," Lieberman said. "John McCain does that all the time.
Actually McCain voted with Bush, (when McCain's bothered to show up), 95% to 100% of the time.

And Obama has a solid record of voting for bipartisan bills and co-authoring them with Republican Senators Lugar and Coburn when the bills make sense.

But most importantly, why would a Democratic Senator and candidate for president 'reach out' to the very rethuglicans who got us into these economic, immoral and deadly morasses that have been the trademark of Bushco when the whole point of this election is to decide between John McCain advocating 4 more years of demonstrably failed policies and Barack Obama advocating the return to American ideals?
