    Are we going to get back to talking about the issues or are we going to keep fighting like children? Obama won so let's move on...

    I agree. What will the Republicans be doing to break the deficit impasse? Fiscal measures are initiated by the House. What's their plan? They're going to be held responsible too and now Obama doesn't have to worry about elections anymore. 2014 is just around the corner.

    I think a big question going forward is, what are those issues even going to be?

    For the GOP, are they going to continue to include the social issues or are they not? That will be a big determining factor going forward.

    Obama is the only one who has threatened to veto a 'deficit impasse' bill.

    You have no problem when Democrat politics include 'social issues.'

    Social issues are definitely going to have to tale a back burner. We've got a fiscal crisis looming. That has to take precedence. If they want to talk about them or Benghazi, it would prove they're not serious and willing to drive us off the cliff.

    The GOP has it's own set of "personal" issues finding it's future identity. The nation has a whole other set of issues with the outcome of many...not so pleasant.

    They haven't been talking. What bill are you talking about? All I've heard out of Boehner is "NO", i.e. I'm willing to drive us off the cliff.

    We'll see. The hardcore rightwingers are saying they're not going to drop the social issues.

    Fine, their call.

    Got no problem with social issues when the Republicans aren't trying to play chicken with the fiscal cliff. How does a minority party survive that kind of negative publicity, if they let it happen? The ball's in their court. The real "trump" card was played on the 6th and they lost.
