Unlikely: Obama goes to Ohio and claims he "loves" working with Republicans...

Barack Obama has had 4 years to work with Republicans. He didn't. Instead, he told Republicans after the 2008 election, "Elections have consequences." Then he passed a pork barrel stimulus chocked full of goodies for his base.  No House Republican voted fore the Stimulus. Only 3 Senate Republicans voted for "Porkulus." Then, Obama moved on to Obamacare. He passed Obamacare in the middle of the night without a single Republican vote or even the support of a majority of Americans. American voters revolted and gave Republican's control of the House in 2010. Since then, Obama has failed to get Republicans and Democrats to agree on a budget. The Democratically controlled Senate hasn't passed a budget of any kind for over 3 years. Obama can't even work woth Democrats at the moment. 
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — Striking a new tone, President Obama four days ahead of his reelection test told voters Friday that he "loves" working with Republicans.
Facing criticism from Republican rival Mitt Romney that he has failed to govern in a bipartisan manner, Mr. Obama tried to convince Ohioans that he is willing and eager to cross the aisle to break gridlock in Washington in his second term.
"When the other party has been with me to help middle-class families, I love working with them," the president told about 4,000 supporters at a high school gym in Springfield, Ohio. "When we cut taxes for middle-class families and small businesses, some of them cooperated. When we came together to repeal 'Don't ask, don't tell,' there were some courageous Republican senators who stood up. I appreciate that. I will work with anybody of any party to move this country forward."
Mr. Romney, campaigning in Wisconsin, said the president has fallen short on his promises, including a pledge in 2008 to "change the tone" in Washington.
"He promised to be a 'post-partisan president' but he became the most partisan — blaming, attacking, dividing," Mr. Romney said.
Here are some examples of President Obama and Democrats attitude towards Republicans.

Slurpees, tea baggers, get in their face, extremists, Jim Crow laws, flat Earthers and women dying on the floor...
