    I am sure the person who originally brought this up disagrees with you, on both counts.

    None of this changes -anything- I said.
    Either the complete unwillingness to comprimise is "disgusting", or it isn't.

    According to your equivocations, "comprimise" is where "we stand our ground, and you then give ground to us."

    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.

    The Republicans never compromised with Obama when they had the advantage and momentum. Obama is giving them the same treatment.

    The problem with 'compromise' as a routine aspect of politics is that everyone has to support it consistently in order for it to become routine.

    That doesn't fix their lack of an edge in public perception.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    - They demand that taxes be raised
    - They refuse to allow for the idea that certain entitlements be cut

    http://www.businessinsider.com/nancy...-talks-2011-7e demand that several entitlement programs be safe from cuts

    Again:
    The Democrats are unwilling to comprimise -- but that's OK -- right?

    The polarity influences people's judgment so that compromises don't seem like compromises.

    Again:

    In a way. The side that has to compromise "the most" is the one that has the most to lose from not compromising.

    The way the debate is understood by the American people, that is the Republicans.
