    Don't know where you get your definition of negotiation.
    Well, it's all a game - everyone bluffs, shows how serious they are and shows they can walk away from the table.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Will you ever make up your mind? One minute it's bad, then it's a tactic, then it's a good thing.

    In post#34 you said
    Regarding REPUBLICANS - the ever hated GW Bush decided golf was not appropriate after the famed "watch this drive" incident. DEMOCRATS identified GW finally learned his lesson as identified in this:
    Bush gives up golfing because of Iraq war. | ThinkProgress

    When will Mr. Obama learn that same lesson?
    It's obvious that, in this post, you are describing not meeting as a mistake. bush* made that mistake, but according to you, learned from it and stopped doing it. But when it was pointed out that the repubs wont meet for negotiation, you changed your tune and began calling it "a tactic" and described it in flattering terms.

    It would have been easier to just answer "No"

    When Obama did it, you compared to what bush did, which you described as a mistake. It's a mistake when Obama does it

    When the republicans do it, it's a great "tactic"

    PS - I am going to have to INSIST that you limit your personal attacks. Your posts are becoming incoherent in addition to being against the rules. I don't alert on every violation, but your posts are stuffed with personal attacks to the point that it is making any reasonable discussion impossible

    Subtext: Except for me and Michelle, who by the way just returned from an Africa trip costing taxpayers 500K on an outreach trip promoting “youth leadership, education, health and wellness”, which are very laudable things. I wonder (to use Mr. Obama's words) "what are we paying for government and what are we getting for it." I agree - a good question. What did we get for the 500K, because the media coverage seems to follow Michelle around as she's sightseeing which doesn't quite follow the FLOTUS narrative.



    They look like they had a good time though.

    Obama get your ass back to Washington and do your ****ing job. I do not pay you to go to Camp David and relax. Your a public official and a leader get off your ass and go to work, i thought you were not supposed to be like Bush.. .

    I realize how hard it can sometimes be when a discussion becomes passionate, but could you at least try to stay on topic. This discussion has nothing to with Michelle or BO's trip to Africa

    Can't say that I blame you. If I made such a ridiculous argument, I'd want to change the subject too.

    No change necessary - just nothing you have to say is worthwhile. I gave you a chance and you decided to be dishonest. Dime a dozen. :
