K&R if you think we need HEALING now, not HATE

Now's not the time to take advantage of our electoral success; rather it's time to reach out to Republicans and meet them at least half way. They've been through a lot, they need reassurance that we can be trusted partners.

Who's with me!?

Regards,

Third-Way Manny

1. Sure we can reach out to them.

 

Then when they reach back we club them.

2. Yes ...

The time IS for healing and I never advocate for hate.

Yes, too, we need to follow President Obama's lead and continue reaching out.

But, we can't meet them half way, if they are unwilling to budge.

10. +1!

If they would have won they would be finding ways to dig in deeper..They don't give a damn about us. They are already getting too much goodwill from our President which they don't deserve. Fuck em.

Some need to listen to cspan sometimes and then u will see how they really feel about many Americans who they don't consider Americans they don't consider the President to be an American.

6. Definitely! Let's fire all cabinet heads and replace 'em with right-wing Republicans.

 

And for good measure, put Medicare and SS on the table, and promise no new taxes in return.

And if Republicans still are not convinced we are willing to meet them half way, we can get started on relaxing Obamacare provisions, starting with contraceptive coverage.

If THAT doesn't work, President Obama can always just say, oh fuck it, and officially join the Republican Party. They stlll probably won't believe he's not Kenyan (or Muslim), but you just can't please some people.

16. Lol, if there were a competition, I think Third Way Manny would win in a landslide

against the author of that comment, on those issues.

Is there somewhere we could test that out?

15. We need them to stop the hating so we can start the healing

 

That will only happen when they recognize that they are wrong. Their policies are wrong. No one believes them anymore. They have been proven wrong...they need to accept that.

Then they will stop hating on us, blaming us for everything, and will actually listen to our proven solutions.

But since that won't happen, they need to be put in time out until they apologize for what they have done to our country.

They have no valid arguments, nothing positive to add to the discussion, they are just whining and crying.

17. When will you start the Progressive Prez 2016 Group on DU??

You are stuck with Obama for the next 4+ years.

You might want to get busy on 2016.

19. Perhaps a bold gesture of reconciliation ...

like nominating John Bolton for SecState or Robert Bork for the next Supreme Court vacancy or, I don't know, Chuck Hagel for SecDefense. Something like that might help.

I really think you're on the right track "Third-Way" Manny!

20. Absolutely! Reach out ... with a straight right hand, followed by a left uppercut. Then ...

if they're still standing, kick 'em in the fucking crotch. My President tried to play nice for four years. How did they respond?
