GOP smiles after W.H. session
Politico44 ^ | 11/30/10 | MJ LEE

Posted on 11/30/2010 11:31:32 AM PST by ColdOne

After talking with President Obama for two hours, Republicans said Tuesday that they were “pleased” and remained committed to finding “common ground.”

“The president did make the important point that he hasn’t spent much time with us – reaching out and talking to us, and committed to do so,” incoming House Speaker John Boehner, who said the meeting was “very nice,” told reporters.

“I think spending more time will help us ... find common ground,” Boehner said.

I’m sure Boehner agrees with you.

“The president did make the important point that he hasn’t spent much time with us...”

Letting everyone know that Zero hasn’t spoken to them, I think.

Of course he played nice, he doesn’t want to miss his vacation time over something as stupid as taxes does he?

Boehner HAS to say this.

He better be plotting, though.

““I think spending more time will help us ... find common ground,” Boehner said.”

Hoping that was just a nice thing he said to be polite, because otherwise he’s an idiot.

Obama is like a Moozie. There’s no compromise. There’s no believing anything he says if it goes against the grain of his Marxist beliefs, and everything the Republicans do heretofore HAD BETTER BE AGAINST OBAMA’S MARXIST BELIEFS.

Get a grip. I know you have been peeing in your pants waiting for an opportunity to jump to this conclusion.

Politics is the art of the possible. In case you haven't figured it out, yet, the GOP does not control all branches.

Geesh, what a moron!

Oh puhleeze. Cantor keeping 26 year old men on mommy’s insurance is not to smile. Cantor keeping pre-condition and strapping “insurance” with the cost is NOT insurance either. As Rush says, getting to buy fire insurance after your house is on fire is not insurance—it’s welfare. I thought these guys would arrive ready to be serious, but they are buying votes instead. Outrage, here.

The whole point of 2008 was that these people spent too much time finding common ground since 2000. The whole point of the Tea Party was that they should spend less time finding common ground in the future. Now that conservatism has “worked through the system” as so many here seem to prefer, and the GOP still refuses to listen, what to do...

This could be Obama’s plan. In 2012 his minions spraed the info that the GOP betrayed the Tea Party. It may be time to line up replacements for Cantor, Boehner et al

There’s no compromise.

Looks like the reasons behind the election results, in less than a month's time, have been forgotten by the Republicans. It will be interesting -- if not tragic -- to see how Republicans find "common ground" with a committed, uncompromising socialist who has done nothing to find "common ground" with them.

He has to be polite about this. It would be stupid and counterproductive to be rude. But he did slide in that comment about Obama not being very bipartisan until he was forced to.

I don’t fault him on this. Let’s wait and see what he DOES.

For instance, does he appoint that flaming leftist idiot to head the Commerce & Energy Committee? If he does, then that will be a REAL signal that he has betrayed us and has to go.

Rush says a teaching moment has been lost, about what conservatism is, sticking to it and saying “no”. Cantor and McConnell are old school knicker boys in gorilla warfare. Entirely out of place, out of step and need to be harranged by US, by Palin, by the Tea Party, like NOW!! We have caved this morning to nanny state. Unacceptable!

So, how does one find "common ground" with an America-hating communist anyhow?

Unless you're one yourself, of course.

“very nice"

Obama has already figured how to take credit for what improvements Republicans might make. Not nice at all.

Tell us exactly what would be counterproductive about being firm, if not construed as rude. See the problem here is giving two shits what these fascist swine think of us. Screw them and shove the conservative agenda UP their throats (that's through their asses for those of you in Rio Linda).

While waiting to see, check out #13. We are not serious about fiscal sanity. Cantor and McConnell are presenting a problem. They need to be hammered post haste with reality.
Insurance is a hedge against potential risk of catastrophe, not a guarantee to put a pillow under your nether regions for a hang nail or preconditions. That is welfare.

We are headed to single payer with faux conservatism like this. Period.

If Cantor’s remarks are true, he is an embarrasment to all of us who have the interests of our Country in our heart.

What a disappointment! OUTRAGE HERE? YES, YES, YES!!!

And, yes, I am yelling!

Yep. I think it would be incredibly stupid, to go in there, before you’ve even taken control, with a Lame Duck Congress working on oh, a budget, and keeping the Bush tax cuts in place, and come out reaming the guy you want to see embrace your goals for the LDC.

After the next Congress is seated, then he can get less bipartisan.

But I agree, he’d better be plotting and planning. And he should keep in mind that were watching them like a hawk.

As sickening as it sounds, there is typically a short "honeymoon" period. This is just preliminary nice talk. Let's first see how the cards play out. If the GOPers start giving up positions, though, a LOT of people are going to PO'd in a BIG way!!
