He.Said.What ?

GOP senators say Obama off to bad start

But Obama's spokesman insisted the stimulus is a bipartisan success. Speaking to CBS' "Face the Nation," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said, "We're happy that Congress, in a bipartisan way, took steps to make whatever happens in this recession easier to take for the American people."
So, despite the fact that all House Republicans and all but three Republican Senators voted against this monstruosity, it is bipartisan. Yes, War is Peace, and Truth is False. Continuing …
And on CNN's "State of the Union," Gibbs said, "I think what you saw from this president was an unprecedented effort to reach out to Republicans. Not just in meetings at the White House, but you had the president drive up to Capitol Hill to meet with Republicans where they work."
Here is the "Newspeak" definition of bipartisanship: you simply need to meet with your adversaries, let them vent, and then ignore anything they said. The Dhimmicrats secretly fear they have overreached but cannot help themselves, and are desperate to portray it as bipartisan.
    And a note to Senators Specter, Snowe, and Collins: if all your Republican colleagues think a bill is unacceptable, perhaps you should reconsider your views, or change your party affiliation if you are going to act like a Democrat. As a conservative I will do everything, in the future, to ensure that you are defeated in your next primary.
