    ...to cave in, either.

    A deal will be struck and it will give the GOP most of what it wants, despite the Democrats' victory in the polls. Because elections don't have consequences when Democrats win them.

    •  We'll see. (2+ / 0-)

      I don't think the GOP is going to get even close to most of what it wants.  But again, we'll see.

          I know you probably don't like the ACA, but however you feel about it, trust me, if you don't trust ALL the evidence around you, NO ONE hates the ACA and sees as it as an untenable Obama victory, more than the GOP.  And there are other like examples.

          It's so ironic to me that the right hates Obama for his successes, and many on the left distrust him for not being successful enough.

          Actually, imo, the GOP got the most of what it wanted in the mid terms, when Democrats did not come out to vote.  Then the GOP threw that trust to the wind, and instead of jobs, jobs jobs---their battle cry of the 2010 election---they proceeded to lose America's trust with an unending war on women, immigrants, labor and minorities.

          Don't care what anyone says, when Democrats vote, we get more of what we want.  When we don't, we get a whole lot less of what we want.
