Obama Needs to take Valium : Republicans Says

Posted by on May 26, 2010 | Leave a Comment

President Obama met with Senate Republicans in private meeting on Capitol Hill, as an attempt to see what could be done in this heated election year. “We want to see if we can get some more work done,” Obama told reporters. Kansas Senator Pat Roberts described Obama  as “pretty thin-skinned” to the media right after the event. Roberts said “He needs to take a Valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans.” Valium is a prescription drug and I’m sure that the studious Senator Roberts wouldn’t have made such a comment without knowing that.

The prospects for progress weren’t high for Obama. Relations between Republicans and Democrats are more stressed, a reflection of constituencies inflamed by the struggling economy and the government’s role in problems facing the nation. Jobs, immigration as well as recent massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the federal budget all were topics of discussion.

Corker questioned “the audacity” of Obama’s asking for Republican help Tuesday after bipartisan talks on financial reform broke down and his landmark health-care bill passed solely on Democratic votes.

I would say that the Republicans and Democrats in Congress have been pretty bipartisan this year. They have worked to together to push our problems towards tomorrow and stonewall on real American solutions. You gotta love ’em.
