Obama Dislocates Shoulder Reaching Across the Aisle

Robert Lanham has a new article posted over on The Huffington Post:

“With all due respect to the president, he shouldn’t have his arms and feet blocking the aisle,” said Boehner, who sustained minor injuries. “Everyone knows he’s lanky.”
“If you ask me,” Boehner continued, “this liberal concept of reaching across the aisle is dangerous. We need to keep those aisles clear. What if there was a fire and people needed a clear passage to the exits? We need to refocus our energies on tax cuts, not liberal spending and aisle-reaching.” […]
This wasn’t Obama’s first aisle-related mishap. Last week, his administration faced a major setback when New Hampshire Republican, Sen. Judd Gregg, announced that he would be withdrawing his nomination as Commerce secretary. Citing “irresolvable conflicts,” Gregg insisted that Obama needs to reach out further if post-partisanship is to be achieved.
There are simply no aisles in the Oval Office” explained Gregg on Meet the Press. “And, unfortunately, that’s where the president and I conducted most of our business. He did reach across his desk once or twice to shake my hand, but we were essentially standing right next to each other,” said Gregg. Like a growing number of GOP lawmakers, Gregg has criticized the president’s efforts at post-partisanship as inflated rhetoric.
“When he reached over to me across the desk, his arm was bent at the elbow,” said Gregg with obvious irritation. “If Obama really respected my point of view, his arm would have been fully extended, preferably across some type of passageway separating opposing rows of chairs.”
