From the President's Press Conference
At one point, when asked about his relations with Mitch McConnell, President Obama indicated that he'd like some Kentucky bourbon, and that he didn't know what McConnell's favorite drink was. Well, remember Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill? Does anyone not believe that Reagan knew what Tip's favorite drink was? If the President hasn't had McConnell and John Boehner on speed-dial on his phone and doesn't know their favorite foods and drinks, it's his own fault for being aloof and unwilling to work with political opponents. He can't do that, and yesterday's election was a sharp rebuke to that approach.
