Dusk-You-n-Me: Political Science 101: The Grand Bargain is the sort of thing you might be forced into if you DIDN'T just kick ass in a national election.- David Waldman (@KagroX) November 7, 2012


Obama campaigned on raising taxes on the rich and walked to reelection. Dems are already bending over.


Obama has a 52% approval rating. When Congress has an approval rating higher than Jerry Sandusky, they can ask Obama for permission to offer an opinion once and awhile.

Honestly it won't matter, Obama has shown he will circumvent the checks and balances put forth in the Constitution. When Bush 2 did it, it was wrong. When Obama does it, you and the other Progressives cheer him for it.


If Conservatives learned anything from this, I wish it was that facts matter. Like Silver's book title "The Signal and the Noise".

Bush 2 wasn't being cockblocked like there was no tomorrow. Obama faced a historic level of obstructionism. They literally blocked Obama on stuff they originally proposed. There is undisputed/measurable data showing this. If you are going to make a comparison, make an honest one.

There are facts on either side of an issue but there is also smoke and mirrors on either side of an issue and sometimes there is actually the truth.

I'll give you an example which is fundamental to one of the biggest policy differences between the GOP and Liberals today. Tax cuts for richest Americans does not create jobs or help the economy. This is a fact supported by modern economic principles but also demonstrable through historical data. In fact, the CBO recently released a definitive study on this subject. The study was ignored (like Silver's predictions) because it was the signal and Conservatives want to hear the noise.

The sneer is gone from Mitten's lip, his teeth are clenched in hate;
He pounds with cruel violence upon his blonde and vapid mate.
And now the media gives the results, and admits Nate Silver's right,
And now the GOP is shattered by the force of Obama's night.

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Freeperville - mighty Mittens has struck out.

The Bush tax cuts are scheduled to fully expire at the end of the year. Barack Obama does not favor this large tax increase and is proposing substitute legislation that would reduce taxes relative to current law.

From the same interview where he made the "one-term" comment.

McConnell: After 1994, the public had the impression we Republicans overpromised and underdelivered. We suffered from some degree of hubris and acted as if the president was irrelevant and we would roll over him. By the summer of 1995, he was already on the way to being reelected, and we were hanging on for our lives.
NJ: What does this mean now?
McConnell: We need to be honest with the public. This election is about them, not us....."

In January of 2009, a newly sworn in president Obama built a large and splendid house in the center, with its front door facing to the right and lots of spare bedrooms for any republican who might want to visit.

Then he put a sign outside, "FREE CABLE"
And then "PETS ALLOWED"
And another "COOKOUT TONIGHT"
Then another "FREE RENT"

Yet no one came.

This president has literally turned himself inside out reaching across the aisle to republicans, and every single time he's had that hand slapped away by the petulant, obstinate, immature children who occupy those seats.

If you're afraid to post your views, then you're a coward. If you're presuming that everyone here on Fark would automatically call your views derp without even showing them, then you must have no faith in your views. If you have faith in your views, then why not present them? God knows everyone else does, even when they get flamed or trolled without mercy.

The fact that you can say "I hope the Republican block everything the left puts forward" pretty much tells me all I need to know about your "views" and the conviction and beliefs that support them; but I could be wrong? OTOH, the fact that you have a big picture of cheese on your profile leads me to suspect other things about you that might lend credence to my suppositions.

The reason Romney lost was because he was a crappy candidate backed by a party more determined to undermine the country for political gain than help fix anything. Party of personal responsibility, my ass.

I say let them try and obstruct. Let them further marginalize themselves. And in 2014, we will make sure they have no control. We will relieve them of what little control they still have.

clowncar on fire: dericwater: Obama will not compromise with the right this term. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. He knows the meaning of compromise by the right: accept our plans or you're not compromising. So he will fight back.

According to last night's election results, he'll be out numbered and probably not get much done without some sort of compromise. I think the whole point of playing fill in the blanks (or poking the touchscreen) was that all Americans would have a chance at representation by their elected officials. Sadly, not all these elected members are not going to necessarily reflect your view on how things should be run, nor will they always reflect the POTUS desires. That's trhe beauty of a republic- ALL of us get a say through our elected officials, not just the ones who voted for Obama. Seems like all that counting would have become a pointless endeavor if Barry was just gonna wander off and do whatever the hell he saw fit; definitely counter productive to compromise and progression.


Outnumbered? Yes. But the debt ceiling fiasco and the sequestration have the GOP on a no-win situation... and has Obama and the Dems in a position that, while not ideal, is something they can tolerate. That's the point... this time if the GOP decides not to cooperate in any way, shape, or form... everyone suffers, but the GOP suffers much more than anyone else. Obama doing absolutely nothing for the next few months will cause military spending to take a huge hit, along with interest payments, Medicare, Education, and others from the discretionary budget. The Bush Tax Cuts will also expire, which is an entirely different matter altogether.

But here's the funny part about the sequestration... as several accountants have explained on their own blogs: it doesn't help the debt. It's a punishment, not a plan.

Obama has to work with Congress to accomplish any goals and half of Congress is the House. He will have to accommodate some of their wishes. Obama is in a much stronger bargaining position now.

If a republican wants to save some jobs in their district, they'll need to work with Obama. Obama is in a much stronger position than last term but he will need to comprise.

I'm seriously hoping for some major advances over the next 4 years.

Offers of 9 parts cuts and 1 part revenue need to laid out and proposed once a week 50 weeks a year, and in as public a manner as possible until the American people see who is willing to, and unwilling to, compromise. Every week, every person who is insisting on being a part of Grover's pledge should be repeated by the president in a daily speech.

Mitch McConnell's new goal is to ensure the Democrats are a two-term party.

The general consensus is that the economy is going to improve over the next four years, and if the GOP doesn't do everything in its power to make the 2nd Obama administration look ineffectual and extreme, then they will have to deal with 4-8 years of Hillary. Not only does that prospect scare the bejeezus out of them, but the older conservative Supreme Court justices just can't hold out for another 8-12 years.

Political Science 101: The Grand Bargain is the sort of thing you might be forced into if you DIDN'T just kick ass in a national election.

- David Waldman (@KagroX) November 7, 2012



Obama campaigned on raising taxes on the rich and walked to reelection. Dems are already bending over.
