Boehner's grand bargain failed because HIS guys would not vote for it, not Obama.
Facts are a pesky thing.
Was Eric Cantor on board with this grand bargain? No.
Boehner has no control over the tea-soaked Republican caucus. They all signed their silly little Grover Norquist certificate, and middle class be damned, will let the nation fail before doing ANYTHING that even hints of compromise.
Deficit reduction is needed....that was a good time to do it....but
Republicans took the ball and ran home to mommy.
Obama reached across the aisle many times...on the stimulus, on banking reform, on immigration reform and what happened...he lost some fingers.
For anyone with even a third of a brain who witnessed the paralyzing and unpatriotic obstruction of the Republicans in Congress and can accuse Obama of not reaching out to THEM?
That's like blaming the Jews for the rise of Hitler.
McCain supported immigration reform, until Obama was in charge of it.
The 2002 Bush stimulus package....brilliant idea, says Paul Ryan. Obama Stimulus...not so much. Tax cuts are a form of economic stimulus, thus the Bush tax cuts were a stimulus too. (Effective? No)
I admit I have never heard the argument that Romney should be elected because Republicans would work with him...seriously? That's like saying the solution to crime is to fire the police and put the criminals in charge of law enforcement. Crime rate: now 0%.
New ideas from different people? And you're pro-Romney?
Some of his advisers are people like Sununu and Dan Senor. Richard Williamson, Bush's special envoy to Sudan.
Dan Senor, our man on the ground in Iraq, Israel fan-boy and author of a book that basically says Israel is so great because Jews are better, more military spending is a good thing, and by the way, let's level Iran. Brilliant.
Romney is George W Bush with slightly less foreign policy experience, and the only 'new idea' on the horizon is whether America will unilaterally attack Iran or let Israel be our proxy.
What happens when you get a rookie at foreign policy and surround him with neocons? Two wars.
Romney's only tax policy I've heard is extending the Bush tax cuts. On what planet does that count as a new idea?
