What is it about the GOPers' "No" that you don't understand?

Every negotiation point you've put through their "kill-grinder" has ended up on their "No" pile.  Let it go. Stop. You've bend over backwards so much to provide an acceptable accommodation, that your too close to kissing your own *---- forgive me for putting it that way, but trying to find their surrender point, is doing nothing more than undermining whatever value you convey the word "practical" solution has to us out here in the country.

Think about how much time this whole issue has taken.  You've given it your best shot.  Call off Vice President Biden. Let the opposition die by it's own doings.  The GOP has no interest in reasonable proposals that do not win the praises of their extreme wing. That can mean only one thing: total capitulation on your part--and by extension, ours as well.

Any last minute deal concocted by the Vice President and Minority Leader McConnell, will be but a band-aid that will come off when the Budget ceiling issue comes due.  It's time to stand firm, not give up more and to let the chips fall where they may.  I am not a rich man, nor does that mean I speak for anyone but myself. I will suffer my share of the impact of going over the cliff, but if that's what it takes to start anew, then so be it.  I supported you, voted for you, believe in you, but the more the other side drags you into believing they hold THE just solution the more you give away credibility you've invested with us.

In the words of Roberto Duran: "íNo Más!"

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    What is it about President Obama's "No" that you don't understand?

    Every negotiation point you've put through his "kill-grinder" has ended up on his "No" pile.  First you gave up your position of no tax increases... then no tax increases below $1M... then no tax increases below $500K... then unemployment insurance... then the debt ceiling.... Let it go. Stop. You've bent over backwards so much to provide an acceptable accommodation . . . trying to find President Obama's surrender point, is doing nothing more than undermining whatever value you convey the "fiscal responsibility" solution has to us out here in the country.

    Think about how much time this whole issue has taken.  You've given it your best shot.  Call off John Boehner. Let the opposition die by its own doings.  President Obama has no interest in reasonable proposals that do not win the praises of his extreme Daily Kos base. That can mean only one thing: total capitulation on your part.

    When your boss addresses you in a written communication like that, tell us how "appropriate" it was.

    but have you seen his public approval ratings lately, especially compared with the approval ratings of Congressional Republicans?

    Your fellow citizens don't seem to share your opinion.

      they prove one thing: President Obama's stance is solid.  He doesn't need to compromise away more than what he has shown he's willing to.  What makes me angry is the stupidity and mindless nothingness of the Republican position.  It  leaves President Obama negotiating with himself.  How much of that has shown to be productive?----NADA!
