    Hmmm, I guess Paul Ryan’s ‘budget’ wasn’t the Republican proposal after all.
    -
    Why are Republicans so terrified at naming specific cuts?

    Republican definition of “Negotiate”; Do it ALL OUR WAY, and ONLY OUR WAY!

    Because their cuts will be to destruction of Medicare and Social Security (even though SS has nothing to do with the budget.)

    I believe it is because the really fear the expected results; their money supply will be cut off and no one will ever vote for them again.

    Yes, a flat tax because 10% of 10,000 is not missed in today’s economy any more than 10% of 10,000,000.

    Toles nails it! Obama in the past has proposed compromises to the GOP at the start of negotiations. The Republicans then reject his proposals, and Obama looks weak. Now he tells them what he wants and lets them counter-offer. And they got nothing.

    Step one; decide what services the government is going to provide for its citizens. Step two: raise the money it will cost to pay for them, and a little extra to pay down past debts. The devil is in the details.

    The GOP leaders have another problem. They will have less strength in January due to the seats they lost in the House and Senate, and the smaller number of Tea Party Republicans in the seats they held. So coming up with a bandaid to get through the end of the year is not attractive. And Obama knows it.

    Obama the great leader.. not. Give me one good example of what he has done to work with the elephant.

    You’re right, I can’t. I also can’t give you an example of where he has worked with my Aunt Martha. Simple reason: To work with someone you both have to make the effort, and since the GOP has been unwilling to work with him…

    In 2011, Obama was willing to accept the deal that Boehner finally got around to re-offering yesterday. Boehner was pressured by the TP Republicans to back out of the deal.

    In the meantime, we had an election in which the majority sided with Obama on demanding tax rates go up for the top bracket.

    Obama wasted immense amounts of time in 2009 and 2010 trying to engage Republicans on Health Care reform and the stimulus bill, to no avail.

    I can’t even count the number of times Republican leaders said they were focused on one thing: make Obama a one term President. That’s hardly leadership.
