    You can pay extortion or fight.  The "blame game" as you call it (just like a blame all them pundit, is the only way to prevent a worse outcome.

    You can give into economic terrorists, but they will be back again and again.  

    Yes, it is unfortunate that those people will lose jobs.  But to prevent more, you damn well better blame the Republicans.

      I don't recall writing or even insinuating that.

      It is time to stop the childish finger-pointing and govern like the only adults in the room.

      The president and senate could pressure the hell out of House Republicans and put a stop to these cuts. Instead, all I see is pointing and laughing...not forceful action to initiate a change of course.

      Adequate health care should be a LEGAL RIGHT in the U.S without begging or bankruptcy. Until it is, we should not dare call our society civilized.

        The Republcians will only compromise if you fuck people more.  In other words, the only "compromise" available is to replace defense cuts with cuts to medicare benefits or social security benefits.  

        The "adults in the room" argument only works if both sides are adults.

        President Obama correctly sees the only options as either caving or refusing to cave.

          ..not point fingers and laugh. "Gotchya" is only effective when trying to win elections, not positively impact public policy for the good of the people.

      •  Your comment makes little sense. (0+ / 0-)

        What exactly are you talking about when you claim Obama ans the Democrats should "pressure the hell out of Republicans"?  Be specific.  As it is, I call bullshit on your comments, and the false equivalency you are attempting to portray.
