Why should Obama budge on his demands?

How can we expect Congress to break the 20 percent approval rating when we demand strategies and results which only come when the GOP has the Presidency, House and Senate – while we only control the House?

Unlike most media narratives we all know the GOP is willing to compromise. Whether it was Sen. Snowe’s vote to allow Obamacare out of committee or the House voting to extend unemployment benefits, there is always the ability to deal.

Yet Democrats refuse to budget. As mad as we may get, given the current circumstances, why should they?

There are a number of reasons of GOP in-fighting. Here are a few anecdotal examples:

We expend two to three times as much energy fighting each other and trying to redefine ourselves at critical moments in our nation’s history.
While Pelosi reigns absolute for Democrats, Boehner is questioned by grass roots and a significant state of weakness – after retaining a 30 seat margin of victory.
Any sort of strategy deemed as not sexy enough to energize the base into a frenzy is blasted as weak.

The last example is perfect, I think, of something we should contemplate.

blame the Tea Party. who wants to bargain with a group when "sexy enough to energize the base into a frenzy" is the ongoing plan of the day.

From the "things we can say about white people cuz we have a black president" file...

“I got a new movie coming out ‘Django Unchained’. And in the movie I got to wear chains. But don’t be worried about it because in the movie I get out of the chains. I get free. I save my wife and I kill all the white people in the room. How great is that?”

In Talks, G.O.P. May Have to Just Say Yes

Some have likened today’s negotiations to a game of chicken, in which the loser is whichever of two cars on a head-on collision course swerves first. But that metaphor isn’t instructive without some additional texture: if Republicans are driving a Chevy Spark, the president is driving a Mack truck.

Obama acts senile sometimes already. And he's much younger than Reagan when he left office.
Also, Reagan wasn't diagnosed with Alzheimer's until five years after his presidency.
It's common knowledge that Reagun suffered from Alzheimers and AAHD during his entire second term. That's why he made so many insane decisions like consulting psychics. Try reading some facts.

Romney's plan for reform wouldn't have been put into effect for another 15 years. Present day seniors and those on the threshold of retirement wouldn't have been affected like now in San Diego. In 15 years, those who didn't need government help could have chosen better coverage through private insurers. Everyone else could still have had a choice between more affordable private insurance with better coverage with some government subsidy or full government subsidy with less coverage but still covered.

It was a much better plan. It would have saved taxpayers a lot of money.

Unfortunately, because of a 47% slip of the tongue and Hurricane Sandy, we're already starting to see Obama's plan in action and the mistake of reelecting him.

More and more physicians are already declining Medicare patients. There will be another government mandate, stringent fines and government interference forcing physicians to comply.

Is this what we really wanted with health care reform?
