Twice he had this huge opportunity. Or did he consider it and figure it would cast him as being too negative and unable to work across the aisle, facts be damned?
It seems like he could've trotted out Reagan's "There you go again schtick" as an introduction to the McConnell quote and the list of things the Republicans refused to take up. But not wanting to get down and dirty was one of the things some worried about with Obama in '08. Not that Ned, Meade, or bLASKAdog, among others, would believe that.
