Dear MSM: Please stop making this ludicrous claim:

Last edited Thu Dec 20, 2012, 05:21 PM - Edit history (1)

To wit, that both Speaker Boehner and President Obama have made big concessions in the fiscal you-know-what discussions.

I have read that repeatedly over the last few days. It is, not to put too fine a point on it, an egregious lie.

President Obama made big concessions.

Speaker Boehner gave up nothing. N-O-T-H-I-N-G.

I challenge one of you to name one real concession that the tan man made.

Just one.

4. Boehner does lots of yakking, very little actual substantive work. I only hope Obama is backing him

into a corner.

7. The Neo Republicans are the new Talilban

Just like the Taliban, their uncompromising has become part and partial of their organization. It is who they are. They are the Party of No ...to anything that means they and their rich friends have to contribute to helping the nation...even if they help craft it. No retreat....no surrender....even after losing badly in an election. Doing so would be tantamount to say Peter denying Jesus. He was in the minority and caved. To them it simply can't be done.

And I must say that if it was the other way around and the Republicans controlled the WH and the Senate and the Democrats having lost seats but still holding a slim majority in the House. And the few Dems stood up and defiently blocked some draconian legislation like privatizing SS....they would be called heroes on this board. The problem is that it would isolate us together in what the media would define as a minority of far-left extremists.

I guess the BIG difference is that they have a national cable News network propaganda empire and nearly every daytime talk radio host on their side. And even most all of the other MSM news is directed to make sure both sides come out equal all the time on everything as exampled in the OP. If we actually had an honest truthful news media as well as more balanced talk radio shows, the Republicans would be decimated.

that called the 2012 election "neck and neck"?

Don't hold your breath.

10. Understood the CNBC duo of Wampner/Bartiroma querying, in effect, what has the President

given up? Only rank, putrid, devious, dissembling RW bastards imnsho would throw out that spin.

11. This is driving me nuts. Just read this:

<snip>

Boehner's Republican Conference has relegated their negotiator to the sidelines. Now, Republicans will see why Boehner was willing to offer Obama so much: The final deal Republicans will now have to swallow will be driven by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Obama.

<snip>

http://www.nj.com/us-politics/index.ssf/2012/12/boehners_toughest_hour.html

"willing to offer Obama so much"? Those asswipe pieces of shit "reporters". They NEVER EVER say what the republicans offered.

I hate these people. Yes. Hate.
