Mitch McConnell "doubling down" on not compromising with Obama.
""Over the past week, some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term in office..."But the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all these things is to put someone in the White House who won't veto any of these things," the Kentucky Republican will say. "We can hope the president will start listening to the electorate after Tuesday's election. But we can't plan on it."
While Democratic leaders said Republicans should be prepared to compromise to pass legislation, McConnell will make clear that he wants the administration to "move in our direction" if it wants his party's cooperation.
Lets get something straight not compromising is the compromise. This election was the only thing standing between Democrats who are ruining the meaning of the word "progressive" and the point of a real life pitchfork.
Maybe they're trying to save face. Maybe they viewed the election returns through a mirror....
One thing is for sure, they are failing to realize that their hubris over the last two years has been nothing less than nuclear in its damage to what this country is supposed to be.
Conservatives have been ignored, marginalized, laughed at, impersonated as racist, lied about, and forced to say "Vice President Biden" for two long years because Democrats thought their win in 2008 was an affirmation that we wanted them to run our lives for us.
The Tea Party warned them this was wrong, public opinion polls warned them, even the cockroaches were running away from the bomb the Dems were daring the Tea Party to blow.
That the Democrats retain control of the Senate is the blessing (for them) of having only 1/3 of them up for election at a time. Even Obama is on notice that some unknown Republican named "Generic" is beating him in the polls ONLY HALF WAY through his
first only term.
It needs to be understood that Dems have nothing to really bargain with right now. Their agenda has been roundly and unequivocally rejected. November 6, 2012 is going to be National Tissue for Liberals day if they think now is the time for their "enemies" to humbly compromise with THEM.
How else can we make this any clearer? Maybe a telegram will get their attention...
Dear Democrats, STOP
Man up and pay the piper NOW before we take more of your children away.
America's Voters WONT STOP
Thats a weird way to end this, I know, just go with it...thanks.
