Karac: You can call Nancy Pelosi an evil socialist battleaxe all you want, but you have to acknowledge that at least she was damn good at her job.

Oh, goody. I thought this one had outlived its usefulness.

Muta: It his "majority of the majority" policy that is kicking his ass. He won't let anything go to the floor for a vote unless the majority of the Republicans support it. If he works with all the Representatives who represent all of America then Boner would have an easier time finding a consensus.

The funny thing is, we've all been begging for a third party to arise, and it sort of did, and now we hate it because we're incapable of effectively running a coalition government under the current rules.

incendi: If you don't have a side of the bargain that you can actually deliver, then you shouldn't be the one bargaining.

It is like sending your 8 year old kid in to negotiate a price with a car salesman when not even the parents can agree that they want a car.

That's his second biggest problem. His biggest problem is that he's Boehner who couldn't negotiate his way into free waffles on free waffle day.

"And there's always friction within a party, between your conservatives, your moderates, even your liberals."

Won't someone think of the Republican liberals?
