MAYOR NUTTER hit the big time as a talking head yesterday with an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," during which he bantered about Washington politics, the state of the economy - and, of course, Philly sports.
Nutter sat on a panel with Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan and Republican strategist Ed Gillespie. During a discussion about President Obama's working relationships with Republicans, Nutter delivered his strongest words.
"President Obama almost re-invented bipartisanship," Nutter said. "Do we forget what happened during the economic recovery act? No House Republican voted for it. Only three Republican senators voted for it. Sen. [Mitch] McConnell has said his main mission in life now is to take President Obama out of office. That's bipartisanship? I don't think so."
