Bush Aide Urges Dems To Work With GOP

"We'd like to see more cooperation from the Democrats," Card said. "We have some serious problems in this country that must be addressed. We'd like to see the Democrats be part of the solution rather than just carp about the problem,"

That would be nice, but it won't happen. The Dems don't have anything but the same old Socialist ideas they've inflicted upon us for fifty years. Their ideas are more of the same, lots more.
Asked whether Democrats were being obstructionists, Card said: "On some issues I think they are."

Huh. Someone actually telling it like it is.
Democrats deny they are holding up progress. Rather, they criticize the president for what they say is his unwillingness to reach compromises with the minority party and his insistence on his own proposals.

The Dems are the ones that are unwilling to compromise. They refuse to discuss any changes to Social Security that include private retirement accounts. Bush is insisting on his own proposals ? Imagine that, he has a proposal and actually has the audacity to stick with it ? Any idea that isn't from the Demoncrats must automatically be dropped ? That's compromise for you.
Card said congressional Democrats have failed to provide their own plan for fixing Social Security. "It's time for them to acknowledge the problem and offer to do something about it. Because the status quo is not acceptable.

The only idea I've heard from the Demoncrats is to raise taxes. Yeah, that'll fix it.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., hit back. "You know, I'd like to see the president being willing to really engage in a bipartisan debate. He has said, basically: This is my plan, take it or leave it." "My idea is that we sit down and have a true bipartisan negotiation. The president seems unwilling to do that,"

I guess Leahy's thinking that most Americans didn't actually watch the President's prime time news conference last Thursday.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California said she was proud of her party's approach to Social Security. "They have been willing to take the heat to keep the focus on what the president is proposing. And what the president is proposing is really an assault on the middle class,"

Having voluntary control over a tiny fraction of our retirement is an assault on the middle class. Only a liberal loony like Pelosi would think that.

It's good to see some Republicans are starting to develop backbones and stop putting up with the Demoncrats crap.
