    " Where’s the eye of the tiger? As Obama hits the road today, political observers -- including some Democrats -- are asking themselves how the Obama White House and the Democratic committees allowed themselves to get worked over by the Republicans, much like Rocky got clobbered by Mr. T’s Clubber Lang in their first fight after Rocky had become the champ.

    For instance, how did a Republican Party that had turned a budget surplus into a projected trillion-dollar deficit get away with becoming paragons of fiscal responsibility? "I can't believe we got lectured by Republicans on fiscal policy," one Democratic strategist told First Read.

    How did the party, when the RNC was blasting out emails about Hilda Solis’ husband’s tax problems, not aggressively fire back that the wife of the GOP presidential nominee also failed to pay back taxes?

    And why didn’t the party pounce on NRCC chairman Pete Sessions comparing the Republican Party’s insurgency to the Taliban’s? "I don't get it," griped another Democrat.

    Time for Apollo Creed to help the champ get his mojo back? "

    If the Dems are truly looking for dialogue and bi-partisanship, and don't want to be lectured by hypocrites, then they should talk to those Repubs who didn't support the first bailout - guys like Ron Paul, etc. But methinks the Dems don't really care about that dialogue in the first place - they just want to spend and increase the size of gov't at a faster pace than the fiscal RINO's do.

    They do not want bi-partisanship they only want to look like they do. Obama lied about change in his campaign and now it is becoming very obvious.
