Far, far too many conservative Republicans believe the goal of politics is to compromise with your political opponents on the other side of the philosophical spectrum. These Republicans need to wake up. The game has become serious and has progressed well beyond such rank naivete.
If you disagree, please tell me how we go about compromising with the likes of Lawrence O'Donnell without giving away the store?
Make no mistake about it. Hard Core Progressives want you silenced and, since they believe that the end justifies the means, they will stop at nothing to see that you are silenced. Don't tell me there is no difference between O'Donnell, Obama and, say, the most maligned of Republican candidates, Mitt Romney!
Do you understand what O'Donnell means when he says he wants to "govern" you? He calls for "responsible governance" which in his warped understanding of the term means that RINO Republicans would never "Ever" oppose Progressive attempts to raise the debt ceiling! In short, he longs for the day when conservativism is devoid of meaning, and Republicans are devoid of conscience. He longs for the day when Republicans, conservatives and all his political opponents voluntarily, nay willingly, place their necks in the Progressive guillotine.
How does the mindless, talking ass, Chris Matthews, interpret "responsible governance?"
It'll be an immediate impact when they [the Republicans] lose control of the government. And that could be good for the country, very good. Because you would then have a ruling moderate to liberal Democratic party running the country for a couple of years and seeing if they can get the job done. That would be good for the country.
