Elections have consequences. Wasn't that the GOP mantra in 2000 and 2004?


Compromise should be dead as long as it is defined the way the current manifestation of the GOP wants it to be defined: My way or the highway. To them, compromise means I will let you live as long as I get what I want.

Compromise should not be dead if it is defined the way compromise is supposed to be defined. Give some to get some, as long as what is given does not create a major negative reaction.

The problem for the Republicans is that what they don't want to give, raised taxes for the 2%, if given does not represent a major negative reaction. For all the wealthy complain about the impact it would have on them and job creation, once it occurs they would live with it quite well.

The republicans seem to like the old Soviet negotiating strategy: What's mine is mine, what's yours is negotiable.
