This is all the party of no's got

The Co-Chair of the Republican party said today, according to CNN:

"We are at war and Barack Obama is talking about beer in the White House. And it is wrong. It is not what our country is about."

I thought the beer summit was dumb; but, now it’s anti-American? Goppers need to get a grip, and a clue, and a plan.

It's similar to the strategy Obama used: get everyone fired up and excited, and decide what you'll do with all that enthusiasm later.

The big difference is that where Obama was focusing on hopes and dreams, the RNC is focusing on fear and ourtrage.

But I have to say this: I hope Beer Diplomacy expands. I'd like to see Obama and Kim Jung Il sit down with a six-pack and see if they can't work something out.

If I'm recalling correctly, Reagan and Tip O'Neall (sp? I'm using the Google phone) used to sip some whisky and talk of an evening.

I thought things like beer, baseball, and hot dogs were all American and not a public out cry.

Your idea that the GOP get a plan - not a bad idea but considering how long its been since they even thought about a plan, doubtful that it would succeed.
Ya know, I wonder how many of these politicians -along with others who found Obama's sit-to with Prof. Gates and the cop over a beer to be offensive gave a second thought to many business transactions that have been hashed out over two (or more) martini lunches and the like and believe those things to be just fine and dandy!
Frankly, I liked the idea of sitting down, relaxing, talking about issues over a brew -or two, whatever, and maybe then, some of the animosities would get backpedaled or at least scaled down a tad in the process.
