Obama in Baltimore

For MeanMesa visitors who might have missed the opportunity to see President Obama addressing the Republicans at their retreat in Baltimore, the OFA "Recap" of what he said there can be seen here.

Notable among the observations by MeanMesa is the fact that, after the President spoke (rather directly) about moving the discussion between parties to a more civil basis, one Republican Senator stood up and called the Obama tax cuts to 95% of Americans "boutique tax cuts."

This suggests that Republicans cannot even depart from the Limbaugh - Hannity - Beck "talking points" long enough to discuss the Limbaugh - Hannity - Beck talking points!  Ech-h-h-h-h!  Yew-w-w-w-w!  Pooey!

Rest easy, MeanMesa visitors. The GOP is convinced that this gaseous, cranial vacuum will be sucking voters over the Party of No in droves by the time Congressional races start in November.  We must all keep our powder dry and our campaign duds pressed and ready to go.  Yup.

Check out the OFA note from Mitch Stewart below:

Chad --

Yesterday, the President stood in front of a gathering of House Republicans and took questions for more than an hour, urging them to put aside partisanship and work together for the good of the country. MSNBC described it as going straight into "the lion's den."

He was inspiring.

We've highlighted some of the key moments and trust me, it's worth checking out.

Watch the video

Once you do, please pass this along to everyone you know.

This is the sort of honest dialogue and political courage that we all need to move our country forward.

Let's do it together,
