Dear President Obama: This is why your stubborn insistence on chasing some mythical bipartisan consensus is doomed. Exhibit A, Joe Barton's battle plan:
Then comes the money slide, titled: "What's in Store for the Obama Administration," with photos of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Generals Omar Bradley and George Patton in uniform.

"Speaker Boehner is our Dwight Eisenhower in the battle against the Obama Administration. Majority Leader Cantor is our Omar Bradley. I want to be George Patton - put anything in my scope and I will shoot it."
These blowhard conservatives never had the balls to fight in a real war, but boy do they love pretending to be soldiers in some great esoteric battle. You'll recall Barton was also the guy who apologized to BP for the White House's investigation of the Gulf Oil blowout while he benefits from his connections as a former lobbyist for the oil industry. And Wikipedia tells me, Barton is an avid video gamer who particularly enjoys the war game Civilization.

In a sane world, guys like this would be heavily medicated and living in psyche wards, instead of being placated by world leaders.
