Change in Washington

Remember how President Obama was going to change Washington and how business was done? The Democrats hold the majority in the House, the majority in the Senate and the man in the big white house is a Democrat. However, they can't seem to get along.

Why can't Obama, who we were told had such outstanding leadership skills, lead his own party?
A White House official who was in the lunch tells POLITICO: "The President discussed how the current tone and culture in Washington made it more difficult than it has been in the past to work in a bipartisan fashion. In particular, he singled out Republican Senators who are trying to work in a bipartisan fashion even in the context of a vocal minority in their party who doubt that the President was born in the US. In this context about the less productive tone of the debate in Washington, he said he didn’t like to see 'left wing groups attack fellow Democrats.'"
I don't recall Bush having these problems 6 months into his presidency. We have 3.5 more years of this. Should be fun.
