Sunday Roundup

When given the choice between having Barack Obama reach across the aisle to work with the GOP or pursue the policies he advanced during his campaign, a significant majority of Americans want him to stick to his guns (56 percent to 39 percent). And 79 percent of the public wants Republicans to drop the partisanship and work with Obama. No wonder Obama seems to be driving Republicans over the edge, with Tom DeLay calling the president's address to Congress "insane," John Bolton cracking jokes about the nuclear annihilation of Chicago, and Bobby Jindal using his time in the spotlight to rave -- inaccurately -- about wasteful "volcano monitoring" programs. You know times are tough for Republicans when the highlight of CPAC is a two-minute speech delivered by a 13-year old.
