Quote of the Day: Why Bipartisanship is Impossible Right Now

From Barney Frank, explaining the difference between Democrats and Republicans:

George Bush came to us on the Democratic side in late '08 and said, we're in a crisis, we need your help — and we gave it to him, very openly, very fully. Then Obama comes in to try to deal with the terrible situation he inherited from Bush and the Republican media went into full partisan attack.

That's pretty much true, isn't it? And not just the Republican media, either.
