    GOP: No Compromise

    GOP leaders are falling into line, saying that they will refuse to compromise on any issues with the president if they should win control of the House, contrary to most public opinion polls in which the respondents want the Democratic and Republican parties to work together.

    Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), who is in line to become a powerful committee leader should Republicans take control of the House of Representatives, made some waves last week when he said he wanted to work with President Obama after the midterm elections. “We have a real opportunity to get some things done,” he told the Wall Street Journal. Issa quickly refined his position, however, later telling ABC’s Top Line that “the word ‘compromise’ has been misunderstood.” He clarified that his job will be “getting America back to the center right where it exists.”


    It seems the Republican leadership agrees with Issa — there will only be compromise if the President agrees to everything it wants. According to a Washington Post profile published yesterday, Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) “let out a long sigh when asked where he would look to work with Obama,” and then said “I came here to fight for a smaller, less costly and more accountable government, and to the extent that [Obama] wants to work with us in terms of where we’re going, I would certainly welcome it.” On Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday, he made it much more explicit: “This is not a time for compromise, and I can tell you that we will not compromise on our principles,” he said.


    Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), appearing on CNN’s Parker Spitzer last night, was equally as strident, saying that in 1994 when the Republicans took control of Congress “there was altogether too much compromise,” and promised that “there will be no compromise” if Republicans take control after the midterms, specifically on issues like “repealing ObamaCare lock stock and barrel.”

    Good. Obama has gone already gone too far and needs to be reeled in.

    So, you're willing to maintain the status quo and ensure nothing gets done in D.C. for the next two years, as long as Obama only serves one term?

    Is that what you're voting for?

    Compromise?
    If Republicans win as big as expected, based on public disgust with Obamacare and stimulus, why should they immediately 'compromise' ?
    After getting thoroughly drubbed in an election, will this influence the Far Leftist in the White House to pull a Clinton? Nope ....

    we can only pray for such a beautiful thing...

    'getting done' in liberal-speak means more spending and the public sector growing like a cancer...

    Internal Memo '08-'09:  Vote against all Obama Plans.

    Health care: Complain they weren't listened to.  (Big surprise given their opening shot).

    Generally:  Complain they weren't listened to.  Things rammed down their throats.  They were willing to compromise.  Why won't Democrats work with us? This is bad for America.

    Now: Hah-hah.  Fooled you. We don't want to work with Democrats.  We'll just vote against everything!

    It's truly amazing how shameless the cons are about lying and acting like complete hypocrites.  Sad that their supporters actually root for them to behave like children.

    Yes. The less the feds "do" the better. Especially liberal feds.

    Thanks for confirming what we already knew - that the GOP has zero interest in governing and possibly less interest in making hard decisions to reverse the current economic situation.

    There is still NO substantive proposal from any GOP candidate for reducing the deficit without also raising taxes. 

    So, why vote for teh GOP again...??

    That's all you got? 

    Two clips from 2007, a dead link, and a quote that proves Obama is willing to compromise on gop interests at the expense of his own house leader...??

    How about this little gem from the great compromiser herself:

    "We will go through the gate. If the gate is closed, we will go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we will pole vault in. If that doesn't work, we will parachute in. But we are going to get health care reform passed for the American people for their own personal health and economic security and for the important role that it will play in reducing the deficit." -Nancy Pelosi

    Interesting (and telling) that you think "governing" = "creating more big government bureaucracy." One of the other moonbat drones recently called it "ruling," which is probably more accurate.

    And she got it done, albeit in a highly compromised form to alleviate conservative whining.

    Wonder if Herr Boehner will be as successful...?

    "There is still NO substantive proposal from any GOP candidate for reducing the deficit without also raising taxes."

    Except for Paul Ryan, sadly too true, a political campaign reality.
    Only because the term Social security Reform is toxic, and the libs demagogue  their base voters, i.e.,  those who receive government checks.
    'Course progressives happily send us into bankruptcy, they enjoy the ride. More spending, more taxes, more government, its like a drug to them.

    No compromise?  The GOP won't be happy until they've finished the job they started with Bush.  A worn out Military, a housing market in the gutter, a collapsed banking system, and the Manufacturing sector shipped to China wasn't enough.  

    What's left for them to do?  Start WWIII?

    What's the point when all you're going to do is reply with "that's all you got?"

    And of course there's always these gems:

    Liberal's Guide to Arguing Against Conservatives:

    1. Call them stupid.
    2. Call them haters.
    3. Insult Bush or his wife.
    4. Call them racist. (trust me, it's an argument-ender!)
    5. Call them "tea-ba99ers." (even though 40% of tea-partiers aren't conservatives)
    6. Say, "I know you are, but what am I?"
    7. Insult Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, or any combination of the three.
    8. Blame Bush.
    9. Make up a cute name for them like "Republitards". This will make you look
    smart, because only smart people make words.

    You and Greg forget that those preceded the GOP's internal declarations that they'll fight everything.  The memos were leaked to the papers.  If Obama is elected, our strategy is to oppose everything to "break" him.

    If someone says to you "I will disagree with you no matter what and try to stop you no matter what," is it logical to say "OK!  Here's what we want to do on this bill, what do you think?"

    The 'point' was that he had nothing at all substantive to rebut with...just like you.

    Really though...do you have anything to offer to the topic at hand...?  Or is lazy contrarianism just your default setting...??

    Re: GOP: No Compromise

    Its no surprise, in moments of candor the GOP has admitted that thier legislative priority is to obstruct in order to drive voters back to them and to beat Obama.  That they are saying  they intend to continue along that path is a not surprising in the least.  I wouldn't be surprised to see them try and orchestrate a government shutdown.  They've already replayed the contract with america bit so why not go for broke and govern like its 1994?

    Yes, we'll see.  Of course, the only real judicial threat is to the individual mandate.

    Ever hear of the interstate commerce clause...?

    Yes, it is called elections and democracy. Where there is no room for compromise, each side blames the other; both sides make their case, and the verdict is coming Tuesday...you may not like it.
