  •  Congratulations on a first-rate job of deflection (10+ / 0-)

    Shiny shiny over there conspiracy Republicans derangement!

    Anything and the kitchen sink, just so long as you don't have to respond to this:

    I've put forward a plan that calls for serious spending cuts, serious entitlement reforms, goes right at the problem that is at the heart of our long-term deficit problem. I've offered negotiations around that kind of balanced approach.

    When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...

    •  Anything to deflect attention from the GOP. (6+ / 0-)

      Seriously, on what planet is focusing on the source of our problems a distraction from the main issue?  This is doublethink.

      Ask me if I'm afraid. I say, "Of course not. I'm a fool, and fools never die."

      •  GOP idiocy and intransigence is a given. (6+ / 0-)

        Pretending the Thugs are "reasonable" women and men susceptible to argument is pointless, as "useful" as Canute attacking the waves.

        The President needs to find a way to bypass them or to shove them aside... because, as we've seen since February 2009, today's Republicans are not interested in compromising... or in governing at all.

          The success of their intransigence is not a given, which is why it's important that they be held accountable for it.

          Pretending the Thugs are "reasonable" women and men susceptible to argument is pointless, as "useful" as Canute attacking the waves.
          Then why are you letting them off the hook and parroting their talking points?
          The President needs to find a way to bypass them or to shove them aside...
          No, the President does not need to find a way around the Constitutional authority of Congress to set budgets.   We need to take control of the House of Representatives away from Republicans.
          because, as we've seen since February 2009, today's Republicans are not interested in compromising... or in governing at all.
          Hence, they forced sequestration.
