Today’s Chris Matthews moment. “Will Republicans get the message from America and vote for it.” No, really, listen. Andrea Mitchell N B C News … tried to pull him back off the ledge a bit at the end … but not with much conviction.
Just for your info … here is the latest poll from CBS News.
The CBS News poll suggests that Americans may be agreeing with Republican arguments on the stimulus when it comes to a choice between tax cuts or increased government spending. Fifty-nine percent of those questioned say tax cuts for business are the best way to end the recession, with 22 percent feeling that more government spending is the way to go.
Oh from the same poll … I don’t get this … but perception is reality:
Eighty-one percent told CBS interviewers that they think Obama is generally reaching out to congressional Republicans in an attempt at bipartisanship. But only four in 10 think that congressional Republicans are returning the favor, compared with 49 percent who believe that congressional Democrats are attempting to be bipartisan.
Maybe its the way the question was worded … but even Pelosi admits … hey .. screw bipartisanship. Republicans have a long climb back to win back the people.
