Quote of the Day
The only bipartisanship you ever see is when they finally sign a bill and everybody says, 'Gee, isn't that wonderful?'
Bipartisanship is nice, but it cannot be a substitute for action, not having it cannot prevent us from going forward.
I was never a fan of Barack Obama's bipartisanship routine.
I understand that one of the purposes of bipartisanship is to cram something difficult and necessary down the American people's gullets for which neither party has the fortitude to assume full responsibility. It's a way of turning a possible gangplank into a teeter-totter.
Above all else stands the burning question of bipartisanship. Whatever else the politicians might say they're about, our news analysts know that this is the true object of the nation's desire, the topic to which those slippery presidential spokesmen need always to be dragged back.
In the first weeks of the Obama administration, 'bipartisanship' was the reigning buzzword, and when the Beltway thinks 'bipartisan,' it pictures President Reagan and Democratic Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill putting aside their differences and forging a legislative partnership, a ruddy pair of genial patriarchs bonding over the Blarney Stone.
Bipartisanship helps to avoid extremes and imbalances. It causes compromises and accommodations. So let's cooperate.
I think people forget that bipartisanship is really the burden of the victor, not the loser.
The best way to begin genuine bipartisanship to make America stronger is to work together on the real crises facing our country, not to manufacture an artificial crisis to serve a special interest agenda out of touch with the needs of Americans.
John F. Kerry
If ever there was a time for true bipartisanship, it is today.
Bipartisanship isn't an option anymore; it is a requirement. The American people have divided responsibility for leadership right down the middle.
The one thing I'm convinced George W. Bush is good at is bipartisanship. It's clearly something he enjoys personally.
I'd like to see that bipartisanship come back that we used to have in the House of Representatives, in the Clinton years. I think there's a possibility that the voters are going to send the message that everybody running - Congress, the Senate, the presidency - that they want us to come together.
I'm a believer in bipartisanship.
Rhetorically, President Obama is a champion of bipartisanship. In practice, though, he is almost always its enemy.
I sure tried to help deliver compromise, consensus, bipartisanship.
I'm a strong believer in bipartisanship.
