A Presidential Moment - Obama debates House Republicans

Regardless of your party affiliation, I strongly urge you to watch this debate. President Obama attended the House Republican caucus's retreat and fielded questions from the audience without teleprompter, filters, or friendly members in the audience.

If you are a diehard Republican - ask yourself whether a John McCain, Sarah Palin, George W. Bush or a Dick Cheney would have even made the appearance or conducted themselves politely and in a manner that demonstrated a full command of the issues. This may be the most substantive policy discussion across both parties that I've seen in a very long time. I can only hope that the Republican Senators muster up enough courage to invite the President to a similar venue and address him with their policy arguments.

The video is available from C-SPAN.

Sadly, not a single one of the Congressmen Obama met with will change their position even a millimeter despite this. *I* felt better, though :-)
