After spending 30 Secs on Fox, this much is clear: The Republicans will never compromise

As long as they're holding on to the House and have the ability to filibuster the Senate at the drop of a hat.

They felt threatened and insulted by the President's speech today. The hatred and arrogance was just dripping off of their lips. The fact that they had their asses handed to them in the election is only viewed by them as a minor setback.

They will refuse, to their dying breaths, any form of victory for the President. They hate HIM still more than they love America.

The President needs to stay in campaign mode and expose Republican intransigence to the American people.

These Right Wingers who are in control of the GOP need to be taken to task. Boehner is in the toughest position of all, between the rock of his knuckle-dragging caucus and a hard place of a reelected President.

President Obama needs to take a cue from LBJ and grab the Weeping Boner by the balls and squeeze. Hang tough and let sequestration happen if they can't cooperate. It'll all be on them as the taxes go up and the cuts go into effect.

There's no need to give in to any of the Republican demands, because they'll NEVER be honest brokers as long as they take advantage of the Congress and have the support of all the angry and bitter white people who voted against the President.

We need to take over the Teabagger Congress Critters with angry mobs and force their hands, just like they did our CCs over the AFA.

These fuckers will not do anything unless they're forced to. Let's OBLIGE them.

1. "They hate HIM still more than they love America."

Yes, they do!

And if America fails under his leadership, they'd celebrate.

2. In their minds, they lost a battle but still want to win their (fake) war

And since we know how their dysfunctional minds operate, we are in for an interesting ride.

3. Good, they are irrelevant and soon we will control both houses.

Then they can stand outside in the dark and yell at passing cars.

5. I'm honestly a little worried that this dysfunctional polarisation born of extreme partisanship...

is going to be a regular feature of our political discourse. Because...well. Let's be 100% honest here. How many of the things that Republicans are currently expressing about Obama are things we, or many of us, felt about Bush? That we couldn't really imagine how this man ever became President of the United States in the first place, that he was probably illegitimate, that he ought to be impeached, that he (or the forces behind him) were destroying the country? (It's facile to say "yes but the difference is that we were right!" because the basic point is still there.)

8. The Republican Party is broken and controlled by zealots

There is no reasoning with these people. You can never reason with zealots. Their influence has to be reduced to the point of irrelevancy until they behave.

There really is no equivalency between how we viewed Bush and the way that they have treated President Obama. We NEVER considered wrecking the country in order to get after Bush. The Republicans are more than willing to burn the village of America in order to "save" it.

Yes, we were pretty mad at Bush back then and for good reason. But the Bagger controlled GOP is really fucking dangerous and it's going to take a concerted effort to control them before they take us all down.

10. True...

and really with the Republicans it's not JUST the rank and file, it's the leadership (or enough of the leadership, anyway). Still, the poisonous and ugly partisan discourse seems to be something that has the potential to go to really bad places. The GOP seem to be, regardless of how much some of them don't want to admit it, driven in their hatred of Obama by racism; but then that can only be *part* of it, because I remember how the right went after Clinton (which again has no parallel with elected Democrats and Bush).
