2. By "olive branch" Boehner means:
"I thought you were going to give me everything I wanted and more."

7. I love how I keep hearing them whine anout how "the president isn't leading'.
It always is in reference to Medicare and SS, and what they want is for Obama to call for cuts to benefits or privatization so they can say they're just following the president's lead.

They'll do it, but I don't think any one of them wants to go on record as actually spearheading it. Unless they're planning a retirement before next election of course. That's why they call it an "adjusment" or "reform".

8. "...we were expecting an olive branch..." ... well, mr. Loompa ...
after hearing all the whining about how the Democrats were not co-operating with George W. Bush, we thought you Republicans were going to "co-operate" with Obama instead of acting like your perception of union workers - putting forth outrageous and unrealistic demands and not budging an inch, and calling it "negotiating" ...

10. What did they think Obama offered in the last 26 months?
And they think he would give him an olive branch every time when they keep bitching him.
