Here's A Tip...

If you want bipartisanship, if you want people to have serious discussions about the problems facing the US, if you want people to take you seriously in your stated intent to work out a problem, don't preface your appeal to this with a highly selective and biased view of how the problem developed, essentially blaming the other guy and then demand that he should buckle down and drink the Kool-Aid.

Yes, Representative Hoyer, I mean you.

This is an example of the "bipartisanship" approach of the Democrats since the days when "Tip" O'Neill declared the Reagan budgets to be dead on arrival before they were even submitted: whatever the Republicans do, believe in, or want, that is what is negotiable, but don't even contemplate asking the Democrats to reconsider their stand on anything.

That's not bipartisanship, that's bullying.
