The only thing transparent about this administration is the way they play politics. If the administration really cared about bipartisanship he would have started a year ago. An entire year went by with Obama and the dems in Congress covering their ears and yelling "la la la you don't have a plan la la la". Even if you were to believe that suddenly Obama got the message because of the election in Massachusetts, the fact of the matter is that the deocrats in congress don't agree on the plan, and now the republicans can be set up to provide cover for the dems that don't want to vote for Obamacare.
Moreover, Obama's idea of bipartisanship is not negotiation and deal making. His idea of bipartisanship is "sit down, shut up, listen to my lecture, take my insults, and you will eventually see that my plan is right". There is no plan for changing any of it. And by the way, he is demanding that his far left appointees get confirmed as well. No compromise there either.
Like the Mayor of Las Vegas said after Obama slammed Vegas for a second time "This president is very slow learner".
