    Did either of those two outline what they wanted to do with this "bi-partisanship" they speak of? Any concrete ideas or just more "let's all get along" bullshit!

    Unless they start talking about cutting spending and government control I aint listening.

    If that's your attitude, then you will go down in no time. Try listening to the video instead of burying your head in the sand. No nation has ever survived this type of civil war.

    LISTEN TO THE VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jeeezus....

    They're not "recommending" any fix at all. What they RECOMMEND is that NOTHING will get fixed until the vitriolic partisanship ENDS. You won't have your way either. And they provide some recent history, because they've been there, proving that.

    You mean worse gridlock than the present super majority of Dems in Congress and the White House, or the gridlock 4 years ago when Dems controlled just congress?

    What's interesting is that C-Span's Washington Journal provides a live open forum. Most of their guests aren't there to lecture, which indeed can be boring. What is fascinating is the breadth of opinions, straight from the mouths of Americans, which is basically what we see here only in typeface. In other words, it's a chance to "listen to ourselves" as people voice some of the same opinions we can read, but without the advantage of tone and expression.

    What's inyourface obvious is that this effort is to extinguish the very partisanship you seem to prefer be maintained. To what end? Who gives a shit who "started it"??? Is that a reason for any war to continue ad infinitum? Hell no.
