The Tea Party Tango
Meet you in the middle, meet you in the middle, meet you in the middle.
Why not start by cutting back congress’s outrageous pay scale and retirement plan?
The problem is not Obama’s unwillingness to compromise. It is Harry Reid’s. And Obama can’t bring him into line.
The problem is that for the last ten years Congress has only cut revenue while increased spending only on Republican projects (i.e., two wars, etc.). “My way or the highway” is not a discussion. At the rate the country is being pillaged by the rich, which 80% of Republican voters disagree with, there may be almost no Republicans left in office at the end of 2012.
If that was too confusing, I can just call you names or make baseless claims.
Bohner should be wearing a diaper, G-d baby.
The “TEA party” is mostly dupes who don’t even realize how the Koch boys are out to shaft them. The left doesn’t “hate” the TEA party, but tends to hate stupidity, okay, maybe there is a crossover there.
Anybody actually looking at this? Obama is insisting on a MORE mature approach here: he’s giving into cuts (some of which are GOP favorites), but he knows perfectly well, as does the GOP, that that won’t be enough without tax increases. He is proposing closing LOOPHOLES – that is, things that shouldn’t exist in the first place, right? – and adding some on a very small and very rich percentage of the population which does not create jobs. The GOP is playing this for theatre — as are the Democrats, but frankly they’re looking a lot better at this point than the “neener-neener-neener” approach to “negotiation” going on. Especially when the head of the GOP in the Senate has basically admitted this! The righties on this list are not reassuring me that they are following this story at all; instead, they are smugly repeating their own favorite myths in a fact-free environment.
What about all the PHD’s Double masters degs. and otherwise intellectually curious individuals that don’t want to see you at Walmart??? Go vote AGAIN against your own best interests.
