Congress should make the symbolic gesture of sitting side-by-side rather than on opposite sides of the House chamber

As members of the House delivered a long stream of tributes and calls for bipartisanship in the aftermath of the Tucson shooting rampage, over in the Senate, one lawmaker penned a letter to members of both chambers Wednesday urging them to come together at the State of the Union address later this month.

Democrat navel-gazing, "symbolic gesture"! ROFLMAO!

Do you think that if John Boehner, or Palin had penned this letter to members of both chambers for this "symbolic gesture", it would be well recieved by Democrats? I think NOT!

Politicans are all about "symbolic gestures"!

It is so much FUN to watch when they sit in their own little bunches.

Watching one side of the room stand up and applaude and the other side glaring and pouting during certain parts of the President's speech.

Now it will look like they are all in agreement.

Not fun at all. And yet a 'perfect' media event.

What a joke.

Let the Marxist politicals sit by themselves. They're un-American and anti-Christ and an abomination to Christ and all true Americans.

VOTE THEM OUT!

Anyone with the slightest opposition to radical Communist ideology should be wary of what Obama will attempt to do to them, while they are forced to sit in a certain amount of respect and silence for his speech. Look at what he did during the last one to the Supreme Court Justices. He has no self control, but that's not new for the doper, radical, anti-Life Left in America.

A call to work together?

That should po alot of Topix whiners.

They'd rather pay Congress and Senate to engage in gridlock unless they 100% of their demands, and the other "gang" gets nothing.
