While Nancy Pelosi melts down over the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill, calling it “blackmail” and “ransom,” her good friends President Obama and Vice President Biden are reportedly working the phones at the White House personally, urging House Democrats to support it.

Great to watch, yeah?

Politico picked an old photo to accompany its story, but it’s fun to see President Obama with his fabled pen and phone begging for support from his own party.

We have a really, really big “ashamed of my President” support group you can join.

He’s only had six years to build those relationships.
