One would wonder what was up with the players and the coach.
This leads into the second disconnect. Bi-partisanship. You will hear liberal pendants say time and again how the Obama administration has tried time and time again to reach across the aisle an unprecedented number of attempts only to be shunned. While you hear the conservatives tell of being locked out of the process and not included. How can it be both?
Mark Knoller wrote about this very thing. The liberal idea of bi-partisanship is for the Republicans to do exactly what they say. Which, there is no real reason to support anything the Democrats are pushing. Unless, of course it is good for the people of this great nation.
Which really does not matter anyways as they do not have the votes to enact anything.
