Subby, how can Obama support conservative policies when all conservative policies consist of is opposition to everything and anything that Obama supports? That'd be dividing by zero.

Whenever Obama supports conservative policy, conservatives find a new goalpost that exploits the poor like a fourth world country.

Gyrfalcon: These are actually good ideas, so much so that Democrats shouldn't reflexively block them even if they are Republican ones.


Far from it. Obama should absolutely adopt any Republican idea that's even remotely reasonable - but not just to get it passed. You see, as far as Republicans are concerned, Obama is Comrade Midas and anything he touches turns to socialism, so the instant Obama agrees with the idea, Republicans will run away from it, driving them even further into obscurity.

I'd love for Republicans to prove me wrong on this and actually work with Obama on something, anything. But I'm not holding my breath.

cameroncrazy1984: Serious Black: Hurray for ratcheting the Overton window to the right! Pretty soon, not publicly flaying Hispanic economic refugees will be considered a Communist position.

Yeah, we're such a far-right country nowadays that the Supreme Court is about to hear a case on gay marriage.


You can't deny that while we're on the path of social progress in areas like the freedom to marry, the Republicans have successfully changed the starting points of negotiations in other areas like taxes. Hell, just talking about the GOP conceivably letting a tax cut sunset is considered a big step for them. It shouldn't be, but it is.

Gyrfalcon: These are actually good ideas, so much so that Democrats shouldn't reflexively block them even if they are Republican ones. I'm not a big fan of either DREAM or the Achieve Act for other reasons; but they need to be pursued if there's to be a hope of immigration reform.

Anything that is a step away from the fence&moat mentality of the Republicans for the last 10 years is an amazing thing and should be welcomed. Regardless of their venal or craven motives.


Heh, the moat Idea is a good one. We just need to fill it with saltwater crocs and sharks with laser beams.

He's right you know... only reason Mitt isn't in the Whitehouse is that republicans had issues getting out the vote, not January 20th yet. You can bet 2016 will be a different story - less Dem gerrymandering and a charged republican base will sweep.

/ 539 electoral votes - count on it.
