    Boehner doesn’t say reach across, just “do it my way, period”.

    Actually, that’s Obama who holds such a notion.
    []
    Or have you not noticed how insulting and hypocritical he and his supporters have been over the last few years?

    obama won. the gop are losers once again. they put up candidates who were crap, and many of them lost. scott brown didn’t even hold a town hall. murdock saying things about rape and god’s will. akin saying stuff about rape, special powers, etc..and, gop presidential candidates were crap. newt’s moon base, google santorum’s napkins, dingbat bachman’s conspiracies, cain’s 999, perry’s doesn’t like stuff, boring pawlenty, reluctant huntsman, ron paul. but, mitt was the biggest.

    Responding in kind to the Republicans isn’t insulting. Projecting again!

    I think it is fair to say that both sides should be reaching across the isle, but the losing side should be reaching further. After all, the American people have spoken. The losers don’t have a mandate!

    Carlson nailed it. No matter what the people say, the Republicans just don’t listen.

    Serious question for Republicans:
    -
    Do you think we will again have a situation where a group of Republican senators propose something, president Obama declares his support, and then Republicans declare they will filibuster the proposal? (When this happened, all senators making the proposal joined the filibuster.)
    -
    And, if that happens, is that what you want from your party?

    O should just turn that hand over and give’em that old Brit two-finger salute.

    I wondered when the Obama types were going to start with the re-education camps…

    @masterskrain

    As Rachel Maddow pointed out earlier this year in times like these we can get one party that becomes reactionary and hard line and obstructive. I would say that is what the Plutocrats want.

    Then that explains why before every negotiation Pres. Obama would give them over 75% of what they want first then negotiate so that the Republicans get only 95% of what they want. Oh yeah. But you are free to show where I am wrong on that.

    @Ms. Ima

    Yes including those Republican geniuses that had signs saying “Keep govt hands off my Medicare.”

    Obama doesn’t reach across the aisle. Never has. Never will.

    Suffering from convenient lapses of memory again, are we? Like he special super committee that was set up to break the deadlock (and failed because of REPUBLICAN intransigence)?

    As I look at this cartoon, I remember a recent story from Africa about how elephants are increasingly endangered from poachers. I look forward to the return of moderate republicans and sincere democrats. There are solutions for every problem facing our nation if our leaders actually interview a wide variety of experts instead of people who just toe a party line. The committees in the legislature are supposed to do that. Then they are supposed to go point by point and find compromise in order to move a bill to their leadership and if it passes, the white house. This needs to be done without lobbyists setting the terms for what experts are seen.
    If the two elephants represent Boehner and McConnall then the next four years will be as bad as conservatives commenting here fear. But it won’t be because of Obama. Obama is more of what the Republican party used to be than nearly any of the leading republicans out there now. That is why he began his first term by introducing bills that had been first proposed by Republicans. That disillusioned dems and the republicans had already stated their goal was to make Obama a one term president.
    Obama needs to be a loud and critical voice over then ext four years. He needs to embarrass the legislatures into action. He needs to bring Americans who represent what he’s trying to fix into the white house and in front of cameras, tell legislatures-“These are your constituients, they need help. What are you going to do to pass the laws needed to help them?”
    Barack Obama is a nice guy, “Bronco Bama” might be better for riding herd on legislatures, and SNL’s “The Rock Obama” would almost be preferential. I want a president who is ready to be angry on behalf of the American people and who will order the legislatures to do their jobs. I know he can’t command senators and reps, but he can certainly bring attention to their inability to do their jobs.
    Respectfully,
    C.
