(ABC)   President Obama:"I cannot remember a time when one party promises economic chaos if it can't get 100% of what it wants." Really? Is it traumatic memory suppression of the Republicans in the 2011 debt-ceiling disaster or early onset Alzheimer's?   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 230

What percentage of what the Republicans "want" is based on what they know Obama doesn't want?

The difference is that terrorists might actually release hostages if you negotiate. The Republicans in the House would just shoot them, take more, and escalate demands.

It's almost over. The GOP only has a little while longer to try and defund the ACA.
What's next? Will they bark at Planned Parenthood again? Vaginas? Mexicans?
Is Benghazi a scandal yet?

Not sure what their next move is.

The Republican party has become a group of economic terrorists who are attempting to hold our financial health hostage unless they can subvert what remains of the public wealth over to the richest components of society.

They need to be treated as such.

There have been cases where Republican senators have advocated collapsing the economy to get a re-write of the US constitution and it's waved off as crazy GOP talk.  At what point do we begin to treat them as a national threat?

What republicans want is predicated on being against whatever Obama proposes. Obama cannot propose a compromise that includes things Republicans want because what Republicans want is opposite of anything Obama proposes.

It's called the Republicans-Act-Like-Petulant-Children Paradox.

The govt shutdown. We were on a four day roadtrip over thanksgiving and a few nat park gates were closed.
Oh well, the GOP ended up caving.
But they are a shiatload crazier now!

Clearly the only solution is to propose shutting the government down while balancing the budget on the backs of the homeless.

Republicans forced government shutdowns during the Clinton administration over spending but they never did it over the debt ceiling.

Look, we should just let them crash the economy.  The long term costs of continuing to elect republicans are lower than letting people see the consequences of that action.

Actually, Republicans don't want much... they simply want to repeal Obamacare, cut taxes, put an end to government waste, fraud, and abuse, secure the border, and promote freedom and democracy.

You mean like freedom to marry whoever you want? I haven't seen any evidence they want that freedom but that is the case fine, Obama agrees to legalize universal gay marriage and Republicans agree to raise the debt ceiling. Sounds like a fair compromise.

First, repealing Obamacare would bust the budget.

Second, taxes are already at an historic low for the modern era.  If you want lower taxes, you're going to have to basically eliminate the Defense Department.  Or, you're going to have to dismantle Medicare and Social Security.  Are Republicans willing to campaign to do either?

Everyone wants to end government waste fraud and abuse.

What the hell does "secure the border" mean or entail?  Be specific.

Telling people who they can marry and what they can do with their bodies doesn't promote freedom...unless your version of freedom is "freedom for me but not for thee."

Nah, they'll run some clown-shoes candidates in the primary for 2016 that happen to be non-white and/or female as "proof" that big-tent Republicanism is still a real goal for the party. Then they'll put up another white guy when they remember their voting base consists primarily of white guys.

98%. Boehner got 98% of what he wanted out of the negotiations that lead to the sequester. 98%.

No need, ending government waste, fraud and abuse provide the needed cash. Plus, Obamacare won't be a burthen any longer.

Secure the the border refers to the national border with Mexico. Republicans don't want to arrange marriages, that, folks, is called a straw man argument.

What have the democrats offered up in compromise again? They are calling for end of sequester, increased spending after that and 1 trillion in new taxes.

What compromise is he referring to exactly?
