    The GOP had the power to force spending cuts when they still had taxes on the table. The left promised to work on cuts if they passed thetax hikes. And the morons were dumb enough to believe it. But now instead of talking about cuts were talking about MORE TAX increases.

    I flipped when they passed the tax hikes and many of you told me that the debt ceiling was a better place to have that fight. Well we see how that is going. The GOP keeps voting to kick that issue down the road. In a vain attenpt to force Reid to pass a budget. Seriously? What kind of dumbass goal is that? They won't follow the damn thing even if they pass it. So we continue with these stupid political games looking for meaningless token victories.

    The dems played the gop for fools. Bottom line. The gop had the ball and signed it away based on empty promises. Its like the gop is full of Charlie Brown cartoon characters who never learn and just keep thinking this time they will kick the ball

    We are being outplayed and outwitted.

    Survivor House vs Senate

    The GOP has a hard row ahead of them. They are hopefully coming away from the lowest approval rating ever. Maybe they won't be called the party of no after they show they are trying to reach across the aisle.

    I just wish they hadn't picked this particular battle to do so.

    We should have held the line at taxes. Now we have no poker chips.

    Dumb management and leadership

    The GOP is battling for survival right now. No matter what they do, the Obama team makes them look bad. It is a well calculated progression of scenarios. Heck, the senate doesnt pass a budget for 3 years, and somehow the GOP is at fault for not doing THEIR job. The Senate doesnt want to vote on a gun control bill for it will be the demise of many democratic senators if they do...and somehow, the GOP is at fault in the eyes of the electorate.

    The next 4 years will not be good for anyone. It will be all about dividing and then dismantling the GOP

    I have also been frustrated by Boehner's "play nice" approach, but his latest strategy has some merit. The President's claim that the House doesn't want to "pay its bills" (even though it didn't vote for them) may be refuted by publicizing the Senate's failure to pass any budget: What "bills" are due when they haven't been Constitutionally authorized? But maybe I should heed P.T. Barnum's advice...
