    This is how it works:

    When Democrats win elections, Republicans have to go along with whatever they (the Democrats) want.

    But when Republicans win elections, they have to "reach across the aisle" to Democrats and "not push their agenda too strongly."

    That's what happened in 2000, when the Republicans won the White House after having already won Congress. That's what always happens whenever Republicans win anything. It's nothing but a double-standard.

    And that's the way its been since they got in....big tactic...delay, delay, delay. Same thing with Fast and Furious. As long as the American ppl are lied to and invalidated, we are screwed because the uninformed are keeping these corrupt vessels in power.

    They are trying to eliminate the Republican party. This is politics and has nothing to do with solving our fiscal problems.

    When have the democrats ever worked with the republicans. And why should they? The democrats run the show even if they are in the minority. Because they know the rinos will vote with them and the republicans never ever stand firm.................

    Both parties want their way and make it clear there is little to no area to compromise. Both parties are at fault for this selfish single minded stupidity.

    During the 2012 election the democratic party showed they want things their way or the highway. If you do not like Sandra Fluke, you must hate all women. If you do not like Obama, then you are racist. The list goes on. If Democrats truly believe everyone has the right to choose, than they would not attack those who choose against them. That attitude goes into their way of politics. Either you agree with them or they get upset and resort to name calling and insults, until they get what they want or they cross the line and society finally realizes they are being bullies.

    Today's democrat party believes that there are enough members of the "loser class" (gimme-gimme- gimme) in America to keep them in power no matter how irresponsible they are.
    So why would they ever consider "compromise?" jms

    Again, your party's the party of NO, buddy. The GOP is the one that took the economy hostage in 2011, and now they're afraid of their party burning out, so they HAVE to work with the Democrats.

    The democracts is the only people in congress who are willing to compromised. The republicans are the ones taking vows not to work far the best interest of the American people.

    The "democrats is"? It's "Democrats are", but actually, it's "Democrats are not". And the "vows" you speak of are because We, the Conservative American People, want them to do so, they are after all, our representatives and We don't want what you're selling but you douchbags are trying to force us to pay for it anyway. You are in no way, shape or form willing to compromise. I dare you to give me an example.

    Thanks far the corrections and sharing your misguide believed. The true is the republican vow not to compromise with TEAM OBAMA on anything and to make sure President Obama be a one term president. How is the country economy to grow if the goal of the republicans are to block everything that would make TEAM OBAMA look good. That shameful and the republican leadership should be impeach far making vow not to uphold the constitution, cause not during what best far the country is obstruction in my opinion.

    After six years of under Bush and still not a majority in Congress I think they are entitled to wanting their own way. But they will work with the Republicans!

    Are you on drugs? Bush had to deal with a Democrat Super Majority in Congress his last two years and O'Dumbass enjoyed it for the first two years of his term and still didn't do crap. You are a blind, stupid sheeple. Quick, go turn on MSNBC and get your propaganda fix!

    Imagine any body with a cute cat picture being that insulting! If you don't know Google Obama's accomplishments. Bailing out auto, banking, and Wal street, taking out Bin laden stimulus package affordable health care to millions who were told to go to the emergency room for years. And I don't think having six more in the Senate and being out number in the house puts us at an overwhelming majority! And by the way I don't watch MSNBC. I watch straight news reporting on PBS and read.

    If the Republicans had any balls, or brains, they would say this, "We will give you your fiscal cliff tax deal if you give us a zero percent federal gas tax" then tell the governers to follow suit. If they would remove every tax from the sale of a gallon of gas, our economy would grow like wildfire. Progressives will never allow it to happen; they would cry like babies. Liberals will be saying, "LOOK at the loss of revenue from this form of taxation," ignoring the fact that the economy is growing again, and people are starting to do what they want to do, like buying more cars and traveling more. The progressive thinker, however, wants to control you by getting everybody into public transportation, or, into these electric vehicles. Also, Progressives will not stand for the taxation from gasoline being removed, because that would remove the behaviour control over transportation.

    If the Democrats do nothing and we run over the "fiscal cliff" the republican congress can be blamed. This is B. Hussein Obama Politics 101.

    When it is campaign time the talk is we want to work together. When they win it's just like the bully on the playground you had in a head lock that you let go. They scamper off & start laughing at you! Telling everyone that it was all your fault.

    Just look at BHO! During the campaign he was all for changes in SSA, not so much now. He seems to think that winning with 2% of the vote is somekind of a nmandate!

    Sure they want to work with the has beens, but they "the Dems" hold all 4 aces, so if the party of no wants to keep their job come this mid-term election, they better wise up or else.

    The Democratic Party has lost its mind and its way. Its political philosophy of inclusion and progressiveness has been consumed by virulent strains of anger, dishonesty and intolerance. Its Congressional leadership doesn’t just want its agenda pushed through, they want to silence any Senator or Congressman who dares to disagree with them.
