    Exactly. Republicans found it inconvenient to join the meetings, but met together in a closed room to hatch their own pork. Tax cuts for the rich, now there's an ingenious idea.

    Funny, I did a search and found no evidence of that. You got a citation?

    I agree that partisanship is in play, but that works both ways. While Bush was in power, it was a "my way or the highway" approach, and Democrats were constantly shut out of negotiations. Now that Democrats are in power, they don't see why they can't do the same thing.

    Having said that, it doesn't make it right. In fact, it is wrong, whether done by Republicans or Democrats, and that is one of the problems with our political system.

    Are the politicians children ?
    Or, are the children better behaved than this.??
    But, rather than crying and complaining, why can''t the Republicans do the same thing ?
    Can any of the politicians think for himself ??

    Waaaaahhh...

    When repubs are in control it's:
    "shut up and sit down, we are in charge and you'll do as we decide"

    When repubs are NOT in charge it's:
    "they won't let us have our way those, nasty democrats"

    When Obama became President he stuck his hand through the fence and said "let's work together ok? It's for the good of the country" and then repubs bit that hand. So, now that they've taken a chunk out of the Presidents hand they want to whine that they aren't included in the process and won't do ANYTHING unless they get their way?

    I say **** the repubs since THEY have shown that there will be partisan games.

    Now, is it reasonable to assume that because the democrats have been told to sit down and shut up for 10 of the last 12 years, including being held at gun point for the last 2 due to obstructionism due to slim majority, does it seem reasonable that democrats might be a little less inclined to put up with republican bull****?

    Yeah, that's exactly what the republicans are saying, "Do it our way or else". They seem to forget that they lost big in the last 2 elections. Maybe... just maybe the majority of the country doesn't want it the republican way anymore.

    Recall it who it was that made the point about Obama being The One to change the tone in Washington, to usher in a new era of bipartisnaship, to sit down and listen to everone that had ideas -- because solving problems was more important than partisan politics.

    "Change" didnt last 2 weeks.
