    Considering how at least two dozen people have pointed out how Conservative simply cannot read data properly and therefore any conclusions based on such data are false yet he refuses to change anything he says, it has become intentional.

    I largely have stopped responding to his posts unless there's a truly egregious post.

    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    Ya know what lets try to at least partially get this thread back on track.

    Can ANYONE point to an example of Republican's making any attempt at compromise with the current administration?

    All I can think of is that Gang of Six which quickly got thrown under the Bus by the TP congressmen

    I typed into Google: republicans willing to compromise with obama. If you click the link, it's all about how democrats (mainly Obama) compromise too much with them.

    That is my general impression, but I for one don't think this is a bad thing.... I believe that in our political environment not only is compromise necessary but preferable..... I will say though I feel disappointed at the lack of reciprocity from those on the right and in general feel Obama has given ground far too often. But I will say the current political environment forces him to play political chicken far too often. Many issues that should not be political hot buttons seem to be now.

    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    So here is what I don't get: How did this thread get to 27 pages? All that had to be said was "Obama wanted it to happen" "Republicans must stop anything Obama does at all cost."

    I got a great idea for Obama. Do everything EXACTLY how a Republican president would want to do it. Just to spite him, these assclowns will do what he actually wants.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Context? 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans? When did Bush ever have that many? 2.6 million fewer employed, when did Bush ever have that? Almost 13 misery index, when did Bush have that? 4.2 trillion added to the debt in 3 years, when did Bush ever have that? 39% JAR? When did Bush have that during his first term?

    You want badly to insert inflation into the numbers, well insert inflation into those numbers? Those are the numbers that the American people are looking at and actually feel.
