You don't have a long bridge to cross to see where I am headed with this . . .
We have smothered our sense of reason, and sensibility to reason.
I think communication devolves when we enter into a line of negotiation with predetermined assumptions of our counterparts. Democrats and Liberals presume that all Republicans are greedy fat redneck racists, and all Republicans view Liberals as Code Pink, Green Peace, granola eating, spread the love, spread the wealth tree huggers! This is a real problem, and we need to address several things.
Foremost - politicians are interested in only one thing, and this is paramount to anything that you think.
Liberals, if you want to know the truth here it is. You took your success with Barack and you ran off with it in a reckless fashion like a piece of trailer trash who won the lottery. You act irresponsibly and selfishly when you pander directly to the thugs and losers who got you into your office. And you ruined it, you ruined your fun - you exposed yourself for everything that I say you are. Thugs! Come 2010 & 2012, well you are all gone - and all of this legislation that you had an opportunity to create in a bipartisan way will be TRASHED OUT THE DOOR. Republicans know that all they need to do to guarantee their election is to not vote for Obamacare!
As expected - Barack Obama, a failure in under 200 days.
