The GOP doesn't seem to understand that THEY LOST -- BIG.

John Boner is on TV now blathering on and on, and making demands of the President, telling him what he must do. FUCK YOU, John! Sit down, shut up, and accept the fact that you lost in a historic way. You don't get to make demands. Elections have consequences.

1. No, Democrats don't seem to understand how negotiating works

 

Boner is a big prick. Have no doubt. But he is very good at playing hardball, bluffing and negotiating.

The Dems on the other hand are really good at premature compromising.


That needs to change. We need to play hardball back. This game will play right up until the end.

2. Premature Compromisation

Sounds like a new dysfunction. Will Viagra or Cialis help with that you think?

7. actually he's a terrible negotiator; but you're right, all republicans know that acting tough

usually works to their advantage. and you're also right that democrats seem to fall for it every time.

4. This is all politics. I bet they all know they are going to let the cuts expire..

and then the Orange King of the Pukes keep his ever diminishing seat of power. January 3rd the 98% will retroactively get our cuts back.

5. I say

 

go home and see you after Christmas Boner! Lets go off the cliff and then talk about tax cuts. That is the only way he will learn. Forget about Wall Street having a heart attack. Just go home and enjoy Christmas and let Boner sleep on it.

6. The GOP must appear to be the opposition

Both parties want pretty much the same things

Privatized healthcare and education
Low wages
Gutted social services
War machinery money
Increased 'homeland security'

It's all theater really

8. Let's hope Obama understands they lost big.

He may instead realize he doesn't have to cater to liberals for their votes anymore.

We'll get a taste of which way he swings by Jan. 1.

9. President Obama

 

doesn't have to cater to them either. The only people left are them in 2014. That is a long time for the supporters of the Repukes to suffer. I suggest they tell Boerhner what is at stake. He is holding them hostage because of his holy grail. And you can't pay what you don't have. All those Businesses will lose paying customers. So I suggest they get on the phone with Boerhner ASAP! He is going to kill their businesses without customers.

10. The same could be said for the Roseanne Party, The Jill Stein Party, The Rocky Anderson Party. They

all "LOST BIG" as well. I sure as hell wish they'd "Sit down, shut up, and accept the fact that you lost in a historic way. You don't get to make demands. Elections have consequences." Couldn't have said it better.


The GOP, and all the third party mouthbreathers noted above, and those pretending they were Democrats all along are LOSERS & liars! BIG TIME!!!!!! They wanted so badly to split the vote to "teach us a lesson". Lesson Learned? The American electorate thinks YOU SUCK so STFU!

11. I hope

 

President Obama doesn't fall for the scare tactics. Boerhner is the one who doesn't believe this is not a game! He needs a demonstration. Give it to him and quit tap dancing with him. He is between a rock and a hard place while Wall Street is having heart attacks. Go off the Cliff darn it! Let Bone head call you, he knows the phone number! Go play some basketball!
