I just watched the Lehrer News Hour where David Brooks pretended that the Democrats under Nancy Pelosi's leadership would not reach out and try for reconciliation; would not try to reverse the partisanship and mean spirited governance of the last 14 years of GOP domination. Well they tried but look where it gets them:
Pelosi Seeks House Minority 'Bill of Rights'
Hastert Dismisses Democrats' Complaint, Saying GOP Record Is Better Than Foes'
Pelosi's letter to the GOP minority.
