12. So he compromises with a man who refuses to compromise. In other words...
We did all the compromising and he did all the taking.

17. Whole package costs 860 billion. Tax cuts for the top 2% = 81.5 billion
The Total tax cut part is I think 560 billion. So the majority of that goes to 98%

23. So the top 2% get 10% of the cash
And the tax cuts are for 2 years (more) but the unemployment benefits are only for 13 months, and none for the 99'ers. So those in the greatest need are getting 13 months, and those with the least need are getting a chance to argue all over again in 2 years.

4. Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC has Boehner's top advisor on ...
Edited on Mon Dec-13-10 01:35 PM by JoePhilly
And she's letting him claim that it has been OBAMA who has been unwilling to compromise totally unchallenged.

The liberal media at its finest.

6. Yeah that's the "conventional wisdom" the media/rightwing noise machine
has been pushing from day one. "Obama is a rigid leftist ideologue who shoved things down the throats of poor gentle Republicans."

27. Now, Ratigan has on 2 liberals, and one Republican ... all bashing Obama for ...
not being Liberal enough.

So apparently, MSNBC's afternoon crew thinks Obama is both an evil socialist, and an evil corporatist.

13. HeAR THAT AMERICA? Boehner says screw you to bi-partisan ship.
Edited on Mon Dec-13-10 01:50 PM by Bluerthanblue
I heard him refuse to even utter the word "compromise"- I know Pres. Obama knows where Boehner stands. We need to play the clip of Boehner saying "compromise" is a negative word.

25. Earlier today, Andrea Mitchell played Boehner's clip ... and then ...
Used it to claim that NEITHER side wants to compromise.

She applied Boehner's statement to the Dems equally.

21. Everyone else needs to hear that, too.
By "everyone", I mean the general public--you know, the ones who will blame Obama for all the gridlock Mr. "I Reject Compromise" is going to cause.
