Conflicts Between Congress and the President?

I'm sure many/most of you have heard about this by now. Today President Obama answered questions from Republicans at a GOP retreat. He responded to a number of their critiques with calls for real progress and bipartisanship in lawmaking rather than political posturing. As a side note, it was interesting to see how the different cable news channels covered this. MSNBC aired it in full while Fox News cut it off during the middle and later seemed to splice together the clips in a way that made it look like Obama wasn't answering the questions he was asked.
