Don't cry Little Baby, Just Suck Some More on that Thumb

Before the Health Care Bill passed, the Republicans stood around the playground pouting and telling everyone within earshot they would not play as long as the Democrats held the ball. They sniveled, they lied, they stamped their little wing tipped shoes. Wah wah wah wah.

So now that the a bill of sorts has passed, many of them are saying that there will be no more cooperation on anything for the forseeable future.

Sen. John McCain - "There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year. They (the Democrats) have poisoned the well in what they've done and how they've done it."

Sen, Olympia Snowe - "I think it makes it a very difficult environment with which to deal with complex and big issues, most certainly incorporating Republican ideas in building that camaraderie. Obviously, you're always going to try to work on issues that are important to this country, but it takes patience to build that kind of consensus, and they haven't demonstrated the patience in that regard. It's regrettable."

If I had not become used to the blind spot most Republicans have regarding their own behaviour, I would be laughing my ass off right now. There will be no more cooperation? Incorporating Republican Ideas? Do you Republican clowns ever take a moment and consider your own roll in creating the mess in DC? .........

I didn't think so.

You are in the minority. Your less than civil demeanor ever since you were spanked at the polls set the tone. I would say you got exactly what you deserve, only it took too long. Had it been me, I would have jammed something down your throat months ago. The wimps who call themselves Democrats had to have their backs against the wall before they found some backbone. And now you Republicans are reaping your just rewards.

But go ahead and promise even less than the nothing you have been giving us these past 30 years. I am not sure I will be able to tell the difference.

An after thought - I am truly disappointed in Olympia's response here. Yes, she was one of a very few Republicans to publicly rub shoulders with the Democrats and try to work things out. But it appears from the quote above, she has the same blind spot the rest of the Republican crew in DC has.

The thing that amazes me is that they try and make it sound like they were all for bipartisanship...and Obama turned his back on THEM!!!
Hmmm...they are a strange breed.

What about all the stuff the Dems put in the bill to try and get Snowe to play with them????? You can't have bi-partisanship if only one side trying to work at it.

It has to be the money, that's the only reason I can think of for all the Republic Party parroting the party line of lies. Either you do as we say or you won't get any money in the next election!!

Now that this hurdle is past, it's time for the Dems to grow a pair or a spine and move forward without regard for the other party as they will not agree on anything the Dems propose. There was a lot of stuff in the bill that was originally the Repukes ideas and a lot of stuff left out to try and appease them and still not one vote. So FUCK'EM!!!!

Again, you are very right in your opinion. Yet, the most difficult aspect of the situation for me is still that I had gotten my hopes up that there would be a real change in how our politicians interact due to the election of Obama.

The last major political climate change in my opinion, was at the start of the Reagan era, and we are still using that basic political interaction model to this day:

BE BOMBASTIC, BE UNYIELDING, BE OBNOXIOUS, NEVER COMPROMISE (unless you can hide the fact that you did from your consituency)

It is just so much like bratty spoiled kids in a playground who don't know how to interact it is appalling.

The fact that the Dums always get duped into the sham that is bipartisanship makes me chuckle.

I dare anyone - ANYONE - to come up with a health care program that will make everyone happy. Old fucks don't want to die, young fucks that do all kinds of stupid things don't want to die.

We can't fucking save everyone. Cold hard fact of life. Considering how I've lived my life it wouldn't even be fair to expect others to chip in to save me.

Yet I know more worthless fucks than me that get saved all the time at great cost to the taxpayers.

Interesting problem, I like to ponder on it with a few beers.
