    Remember in 2008 how Bipartisan the Democrats were? How Bipartisan Obama was in 2009?

    Now do a history review and you will discover that the only time Democrats talk about BEING bipartisan and how it is best for the Country is when they are NOT in power. Invariably what they really mean is acquiesce to our demands and our policies rather then doing what you as the majority intended to do.

    It is like how after 1994 when the Republicans took over the House and 1996 when they took over the Senate, suddenly all the liberal press shows were interviewing RANKING members when before when the Democrats controlled everything those shows interviewed the Committee Chairmen.

    Get it straight people..... All Obama and the Democrats want when they talk of Bipartisan is for the Republicans to roll over and enact Democratic plans. And in the past the Republicans have foolishly done so. The Republican party needs to wake the hell up and actually lead rather then apologize to the Democrats for being in power. There are enough moderate and right of center Democratic Senators that the Republicans can do as they need in regards new bills.

    And my personal opinion is that if Obama Vetos shit, shut down Congress. If he won't sign bills tack the material on to a bill he wants. And do not allow it to be stripped. We are in a hole and we can not get out if Obama starts vetoing everything. Time to stand up and be counted.

    The Republicans are a minority with no power to pass legislation. If they want to get things done they will have to work with the other side. That is the way the math works out
    Trying to bully when you are a minority will yield gridlock
    They need to work like they did in December and give a little to get a little. That is the way government works

    The Republican Party hasn't had a 60 seat supermajority in the Senate since before the Depression.
    They would do well not to overplay their contempt for bi-partisanship.

    The more the Liberal's expose themselves while in power, the more votes they lose.

    Simply math and logic. Something Liberal Marxist know nothing about.

    I can understand how the concept of political compromise would be "unreal" to the Party of No

    It seems to me that the only party that ever talks about wanting bi-partisanship is the party that is out of power regardless of which party that is.
