    2. He can bow out gracefully before he gets thrown out in a landslide.

    So in other words, you want the President to do the impossible: (1) guarantee that a Congress that opposes his every proposal will pass his proposal; and (2) somehow bind future Congress' from revising the law.

    Kiddo, it's your claim. You said "international affairs", not aid...
    Conservative is again making dishonest claims. In wingnut world "international affairs" = "foreign aid"

    In the real world, the money we spend on consular offices, trade officers, subsidies and grants to corporations to market our products to foreigners is not "international assistance". That's why he ahd to dishonestly change "international affairs" to "international aid". Even he's aware of the dishonesty

    No I for once want a demo to give a show of good faith, instead of promising spending cuts that never materialize.

    Rightwingers aren't serious about any of their arguments. If they were serious, they wouldn't be so dishonest about them.

    They want what they want because their leaders told them that's what they want.

    j-mac can't refute what I said so he's tossing ad homs around. Ad homs are SOP for the right because they have no arguments to make, no ideas, and no principles.
