    The Tea Partier Republicans want it their way, 100%. To them coming to an agreement is against their religion.

    To the GOP, the word bipartisan means giving them everything they want and getting nothing in return, Which, by the bye, is why they lost the election. Except for the far right extremists everyone is catching on. Angry white men are on the way out. It’s the 21st century. Time to join us.

    re: night-gaunt

    of course. They began to return the favor. Since the late 1990s, it’s been “my way or the highway”. Senator Dashiell, for example, was called “the Great Obstructor” because he did over 100 filibusters and not one of them could be considered to be based on principle. Right and wrong didn’t enter his calculations, as evidenced by such matters as Homestead Mining, where the public was left a mess.
    .
    The polarization between the parties is now almost complete. It’s one thing to compromise on unimportant things. How does one compromise with good and evil? And so each time the Democrats in the last four years came up with their latest idea to destroy the culture, it resulted in a wall. No government can function for long that way.
    .
    A historic parallel of infighting between principle and moral evil is France in 1939-1940. The president of France saw the danger, tried to take various steps to get his nation ready, but was stopped by petty garbage every step of the way by those without morals. He tried to resign more than once, exasperated. The rest is history: when Germany invaded, France was not ready.

    “Be bipartisan? Are you kidding? Obama tried that for four years, enough already!”

    You’re absolutely correct. The rest of the world is moving and changing. The US has a lot of work to do stay in the game.

    The Republican party has made it very clear that they want no part in governing. Want no part in investing in the future. Fine. Let them go off to Glennbeckville and argue among themselves about birth control, protecting white male sensitivities, black panthers in Benghazi or whatever.

    The rest of us have a lot of work to do.

    @HOWGOZIT

    Wrong as usual. The Democrats bent over backwards (too far in my opinion) to accommodate the demands of the Republicans but the Tea Party fanatics shot them down again and again. They wanted their way and no other.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    However it can be shown that the Democrats haven’t gone to the right as far as the Republicans and definitely not Left ward.
    -
    Reid had the chance to return the filibuster to its proper state—-you must spend hours to stop something unlike now when you wave your hand and stop it. Neither side should have it so easy right now. The Republicans have made themselves too far into extremist right to get elected over all.

    What’s so fanatic about a group of folks who are alarmed at a National Debt of $16.5 trillion, $58.2 trillion in Total Debt, and $122.7 trillion in US Unfunded Liabilities? I’m not a Tea Party person, but I do get what they are concerned about.

    @ghostkeeper

    Obama was never bipartisan in any way shape or form. Why do so many list to the right and left wing mouthpieces and completely ignore what’s actually going on in front of them??

    @Rickapolis

    And where exactly is the compromise from the left coming?? People in this country are so blinded by their own partisan views and beliefs that they can’t see the forest for the trees. Bottom line, other than a few middle roaders from each party, neither side wants to or is willing to compromise on anything. The sooner people realize that the sooner they’ll get smart and start shedding these idiotic labels.

    @Eryx

    The world is about compromise Eryx. Anyone who thinks they have all the answers is usually the one with the least. Nobody “wants” to compromise on things they feel are right but without it nobody gets anywhere. It’s really as simple as this. Two people are rowing a boat, one thinks they should row in synchronization while the other feels alternating is best. Both methods have their pros and cons but if they choose not to compromise they get nowhere. By compromising and switching from one method to the other neither gets it exactly the way they believe it should be but at least they make it to the other side of the river. Why is this concept so hard for people to understand?

    We’ve added 6 or so trillion to the debt since obama came into office, what did we get for our money? We should have started with infrastructure.
