Specter on 'bi-partisanship'

Sen. Arlen Specter is so out of touch with reality.  When commenting on the lack of bipartisanship in the formation of the health care bill, he said:

"If some of the Republicans would come forward with suggestions, offer a vote or two, or three or four, to take away the need to have every last one of the 60 Democrats, you'd have a much better bill in accordance with the tradition of the Congress, especially the Senate, on bipartisanship," Specter said, adding that Republicans are more interested in "plotting ways to beat President Obama in 2012."

Has Specter been living on a desert island for the past year?  I'm not an expert in logic, but wouldn't the Republicans adding a vote or two or three or four amount to just agreeing with the opposition instead of giving valuable input to the process?  What a joke he is. 

On the contrary, the Republicans have offered many alternative plans through amendments to the bill, and all were rejected.  Sen. Dick Durbin lied several times when he stated publicly that the Republicans offered no solutions.

Specter claims the Republicans are worrying more about 2012 than playing nice right now.  Actually, they are more concerned with landslide victories in 2010; maybe this hope and change will be enough to undo the health care reform bill that ends up on President Obama's desk the day before the State of the Union address.  Barring divine intervention, the congress will indeed present Obama with a merged bill, and Obama will go to the SOTU grinning like a Cheshire cat.

At the first opportunity, the American people should turn in their tiles, and get a whole new set of letters for a fresh start to bipartisanship.
