Obama to GOP leaders: I need to be better at bipartisanship

More bipartisan. Seriously? How?:

President Barack Obama told GOP leaders behind closed doors Tuesday that he had failed to reach across party lines enough during his first two years in office, a senior administration official told CNN.

He promised to do a better job of bipartisan outreach in the days ahead, the official added.

“The president said he had to do better, and the president is ready to do his part,” the official said.

That surely inspired the Republican leaders to want to work with the President. I’m sure they think he’s really got a spine of steel now.
