Republican Spin on Obama Session: It Proves We Aren't the Party of No

Mike Pence, one of the most divisive republicans, says yesterday's session proved that the republicans aren't just the "Party of No Ideas."
But Party of No doesn't just mean party of no ideas. It means no, no, no, no, no. It means Jim DeMint's waterloo strategy--let's just say no to healthcare and defeat Obama at the get go. It means voting along party lines on every piece of legislation.
I think what Obama was saying yesterday is that yes, republicans have ideas, they're just not good ones that address today's problems. They're stale and outdated.
If Obama keeps at the bipartisan efforts, he may be able to make some headway. But one session isn't going to cause republicans to join in. Republican leadership also has to change its course.
