Over at the Daily Beast, former senior advisor to the McCain campaign and George W Bush employee Nicolle Wallace offers "Republicans Get on Board/Even some former Bush aides are smitten with the new president. Now, will lefties let the GOP inside the tent?" (link). I am fighting very, very hard to avoid screaming out the first appellation that comes to mind. So, I'll just say that she and her friends are simply political opportunists, and the Republican Party could do much worse than to purge their ranks of those who like her have absolutely no principles.
She also says,
"President Obama has the support of roughly 80 percent of Americans. Those numbers include all Democrats and a whole lot of Republicans."
I'd like to know where Nicole Wallace is getting her numbers, because even a CNN poll doesn't support anything like that (link). However, he does have an 81% approval rating in Canada (link), so maybe she just took a wrong turn.
