Skip to comments.GOP smiles after W.H. session
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 hasnt 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.

GOP bought off ping?
Oh, God! I knew he was a mistake. Sigh...
I’m sure Boehner agrees with you.
The president did make the important point that he hasnt 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?
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.
Boner is a sellout.
Any fat lips?
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.
Here's what common ground will get you.
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...
GO TO HELL, bARRY!
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
Consorting with the enemy, or a meeting of like-minds, it’s still bad either way.
“Common ground” - that’s code for we’ll meet all the Democrats’ demands and forgo ours!
The only common ground I want is a burial site for 0bamao's Marxist agenda!
Cue Lucy ( Obama) pulling football away at last second from gullible GOP
We’ve been sold out once again. And again, no Reach-around.
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.
The whole point of 2008 was that these people spent too much time finding common ground since 2000.
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!
“Which one of them took the wet spot?”
Good one - you sound like me.
OK all of you GOP fans out there tell me SOMETHING good that happened in this “meeting”? From the looks of it the House GOP got ROLLED!
So, how does one find "common ground" with an America-hating communist anyhow?
Unless you're one yourself, of course.
Bull F-——g S—t!!!!!!!
I hope the Republicans know we are watching. Not what they say, but what they do.
Compromising is for losers. Who’s seeking common ground? Sounds to me like its our side!
Here we go again!
Obama has already figured how to take credit for what improvements Republicans might make. Not nice at all.
Call their DC offices and ask if they’re still looking for their cajones, spine and guts.
It didn’t take them that long to find their inner Mr. Bipartisan.
John McCain must be bursting with pride today!
Lets wait and see what he DOES.
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!
Naw, more like grinning idiots.....Election over with, same old, same old.
See? Without a total change in leadership within the GOP/RNC monolith, it will be SOSDD.
Call their DC offices and ask if theyre still looking for their cajones, spine and guts.
ABSOLUTELY!!!! Single payer...here we come—all for a toothy smile from the One.
CALL THEIR DC OFFICES!! on pre-conditions and 26 year old men on mommies health insurance, Cantor said.
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.
Not yet, but with all the idiotic knee-jerk reactions on this thread there are sure to be plenty.
The only words he spoke to them in the previous 2 years was “I won” and then he shoved stuff Americans did not want down their throats.
There can be no common ground with the communists black Muslim King of America.
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!!
Gotta get some ice.........
