The only time the Democrats want to deal if they can't get something done by hook or crook. by lying, usurping the Constitution or the rules, or by just flat out ignoring the problem, because the Republicans might have a better idea. You might have noticed that I said might. Because the Republicans lost there backbone as a viable party after Reagan left office, Not to say they had much of one when he was President. They don't stand on principle, they ignore their conservative roots. The fire of Reagan, Teddy Roosevelt, Lincoln. They spend their time talking the talk, but when it comes time to walk the walk, they crawl away, and slither under the nearest rock. While the Democrats set back and talk everything they can from the run of the mill American Citizen. I for one any tired of the game playing by both parties, The republicans should start embracing the Tea Party Movement. They should start being true Conservatives, They should stop trying to be Conservatives in theory only. They should stop being Moderates, and start being Statesmen. We don't need the likes of McCain, Snowe, or any of the other weak kneed Republicans, and kowtow and bow down to the Democrats more often than not. We should be making every cut that is remotely possible. and every dime saved should be going toward paying off our debt, no matter what President or Congress created it. We need to stop the political games that are so common place in Washington DC. We should stop trying to buy friendship, and start being the America that we were and should be.Obama wants deals on student loans, transportation
