Alpo Accounts: Bipartisanship is a synonym for date rape 

2005: Bush must think the Dems have awfully short memories. One of his flacks emits the Partei line:

Bush aides continued to emphasize urgency. Rob Nichols, the chief Treasury Departmentspokesman, said: "We are committed to working with Congress to pass bipartisan legislation that strengthens and secures Social Security for future generations this year."
(via WaPo)

2001: Dear Leader at his Uriah Heep-like, über-folksy best:

[BUSH] I've learned that the people can make a big difference in a lot of debates, particularly the tax relief debate. We're making some pretty good progress. I saw a good Democrat Senator out of Georgia, the other day. Max Cleland said that he is interested in -- when he comes back, interested in supporting the $1.6 trillion plan. I think that's what he said. It certainly sounded like it to me. (Laughter.) And that's a good sign. I appreciate the Senator going home and listening to the people.
(via White House transcript)

And we all remember what happened to Max Cleland... What does "good Democrat" mean to Bush? A Democrat whose back is positioned just right for the knife.
