It seems at least some Republicans are waking up to the idea that full-on obstruction isn't necessarily the strategy that will save them politically with the public.
But they still remain woefully out of touch with the body politic, if the same Washington Post story is to be believed.


Many Republicans say they are willing to vote for higher tax rates only as part of a big debt-reduction deal. So, in the absence of such a deal, top GOP aides have been looking for a way to make Democrats bear the political burden of raising taxes on the rich.
It could work like this: The Republican-controlled House could adopt two competing bills. One, supported primarily by Republicans, would extend the expiring low tax rates for all households, including the rich. The second, supported primarily by Democrats, would extend the current low rates only on income less than $250,000 a year, allowing rates for the wealthy to increase. Both measures would go to the Democratic-controlled Senate, which would then pass only the Democratic bill.
They really think that voting just to raise taxes on the rich is bad politics. This is after Senate Democrats, and enough Republicans to pass the bill, actually did just that back in July. Before the election. The election in which Democrats gained in the Senate, won eight House seats, and kept the White House running specifically on ending the Bush tax cuts for the rich. Unbelievable.

Democrats offered the most stuff, plain and simple.

P.S. If you are saying that $80 billion in taxes is what got Obama elected, then the left is exactly as stupid as you say it is.

Obama bought the low income and low intellect votes. Slew is one of those that got bought out by Obama. Did he pay you twice because you are both low income and low intellect?

Obama Declares Support For Same-Sex Marriage

May 9, 2012 7:43 PM

WASHINGTON, D.C.(CBS News / AP)– President Barack Obama declared his support Wednesday for same-sex marriage, becoming the first president to take that position and ending months of equivocation on the politically explosive subject.

Mr. Obama’s announcement was cheered by gay rights groups in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond who have long urged him to support gay marriage; a KPIX-TV CBS 5 poll conducted immediately after the announcement found 61% of Bay Area adults agreed with his stand.

Mr. Obama said he felt it had become important for him to affirm that he thinks same-sex couples should be able to get married. He said he came to that conclusion over the course of several years of talking to family and friends.

“I have hesitated on gay marriage in part because I thought that civil unions would be sufficient,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with ABC News at the White House. He added that,“I was sensitive to the fact that for a lot of people the word `marriage’ was something that invokes very powerful traditions, religious beliefs and so forth.”

Now, he said,“it is important for me personally to go ahead and affirm that same-sex couples should be able to get married.”

Stupid Slew. You are the liar. Obama promised his support for gay marriage so he could buy the support of the "gay community" and get big money contributions into his election campaign coffers. Liar Slew.

Since nobody was writing about the ND workers specifically, it's odd you pretend they were.... Even odder, I wrote Crystal sugar workers retired, got unemployment, and other jobs... Why was MY post a lie again ?? Oh right, it actually wasn't until you pretend I meant ND workers, but I didn't.... Poor schmuck, you didn't realize many got unemployment...

Pretend to be a man now, for a change.
