And McConnell is one of the current Republicans that Bob Dole has made some pointed comments about – without actually embarrassing the State of Kentucky by using his name. McConnell represents the entire obstructionist movement current among today’s Republicans. They have not produced a single coherent thought without working in a committee with Democrats, and then those proposals are denounced by the rest of the Republican Party as that dreaded option – COMPROMISE!
Here is the Democratic version of “Compromise”: “I am willing to forgo this option if you are willing to put something on the table.” An example is their willingness to look at a reduction in entitlement programs if the Republicans are willing to be flexible on some tax increases.
Here is the Republican (as influenced by the Tea Party) version of Compromise: “We want YOU to forgo this option. What else are YOU planning on giving up?” The counter example is they demand the Democrats not only look at a reduction in entitlement programs, but demand tax cuts as well. However they want to maintain if not increase military spending and aid to “friendly” countries.
And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!
