  •  I truly believe the most Republicans (5+ / 0-)

    do not want to improve their relationship with President Obama.  The fight him at every turn.  Even when he backs there ideas, they turn against their own agenda just to be against him.

    •  The key word being most, which is not all (3+ / 0-)

      We only need 20-30 Repubs to pass anything in the house. I don't believe there aren't that many Repubs who can't be peeled away on any given issue, be it the debt ceiling, spending bills or gun control. We have to stop projecting the recent past onto the ongoing future. Things change, coalitions split.

    •  R's met just before his inauguration in 2008 & now (0+ / 0-)

      That's where the "oppose everything Obama" strategy came from.  I wonder what their grad strategy will be this time?  Apparently something different.  Frank Luntz reportedly told them to stop saying "rape".  Just stop.

      Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.
