  •  This is exactly why the reps lost the majority! (0+ / 0-)

    compromise people, compromise. If the dems act like the reps the last (8) years they will get their asses bounced from Washington just like the reps in '06 & '08 & the dems in '94.

    Every rep is not the devil incarnate, just like every dem is not holier than thou ...

    tunnel vision is not a good thing!

    I have felt for some time the best thing to happen to the dem party was Gore & Kerry losing, of course it was the worst thing re: dead soldiers in Iraq :( on the other hand ...

    the reps may be thinking, the best thing that could happen for them is Obama being elected & a big  dem majority which leads to great expectations & the chance for a big disappointment, just saying ...

    America is in quite a mess right now, not a lot of easy fixes to our problems.

    carry on

    •  Wait. Did I just read you right? (0+ / 0-)

      Did you say that the Republicans lost their majority a couple years ago because they compromised?

      Really? You think they compromised? With whom? Bush said 'Burn the Constitution' and the Republican Congress said, 'Nah, just tear it up into itty bitty pieces but give it to the historians for posterity's sake.' That sort of compromise?

      Honestly, I'm not trying to be snarky (well, not too snarky). I just think I must be reading what you wrote wrong because there wasn't any compromising with the Democrats. None. Unless you count Lieberman. They let him park in the parking lot. (Everyone else had to park on the street and run out every two hours to refill the meters.) That was a nice concession. But that's about it.

      Or was I living on another planet during this time and missed something?

      •  Seriously, (0+ / 0-)

        are you an idiot! no they lost because they didn't compromise ie Absolute power corrupts absolutely incompetence/corruption/constitutional violations speaking of which, it's sad to see the dems doing the wrong kind of compromising recently, FISA bill, no impeachment process regarding Bush's constitutional violations, I digress.

        & after rereading my post & because of your snark, just let me state categorically, you are a frickin' idiot! ...

        take care

          Read my post. I just now realized that I read the first two lines as one sentence, and it didn't make sense to me. That's why I asked. And I thought I asked nicely. Not as an idiot. Not as a snark. Not to solicit your outrage. It didn't make sense to me. I actually said I might be reading what you wrote wrong. I wanted to know what you meant and I asked for further information.

          Holy Moly. If this is what passes as discourse around here, I'll pass. I asked a question. I didn't understand what you meant. I said that upfront.

          Stop taking yourself so seriously. If someone can't ask you a question, then you're really taking yourself way too seriously.

          •  hmm, & I quote ... (0+ / 0-)

            Honestly, I'm not trying to be snarky (well, not too snarky).

            You were fine w/the topic line & first sentence, both questions: Wait. Did I just read you right? Did you say that the Republicans lost their majority a couple years ago because they compromised?

            Then you should have stopped & waited for a reply.

            take care
