    Thus far there's been no serious proposal from the President for the republicans to oppose, just a whole lot of manuveuring and trial balloons. This wounded brainstorming effort hasn't worked in the past four years, it's not going to work going forward. Make the serious proposal and debate it as should be.
    No. I'm sure the President is tired of the Party of No just saying No to everything. Time for the Republicans to say exactly what programs they want cut, what spending they want eliminated. It shouldn't be up to the President to figure it out through trial and error. Those days are done. He's not negiotiating against himself any more.

    Senate Republican plans are meaningless, as are articles in the National Review. I want to see what Orange tan and the rest of his party are willing to offer up.

    Why would anyone's plan's be meaningless? Does it matter who has the good ideas so long as they are indeed good ideas? Obama could have gotten a loty more traction from republicans on Obamacare if he'd just have listened to some of the good ideas the republicans had concerning removing barriers for HC insurance companies from practicing in any state, or tort reform, or creating a whole new dept in the interior to manage and prosecute medicare and medicaid fraud, and waste.. Are these not good ideas?

    Why should anyone bother to "show" you anything if you're just going to dismiss it out of hand without discussion, or even reading it?

    They have proposed nothing? Have you forgotten the plan they put out some time ago that everyone called throwing grandma off a cliff? The fact is the republicans have been making proposals for a long time now and you just don't like any of them.

    House GOP makes a $2.2 trillion debt counteroffer to Obama on cliff - The Hill

    House Republican leaders have made a counteroffer to President Obama in the fiscal cliff negotiations, proposing to cut $2.2 trillion with a combination of spending cuts, entitlement reforms and $800 billion in new tax revenue.

    The leaders delivered the offer to the White House on Monday with a three-page letter signed by Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), and four other senior Republicans, including Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the party’s just-defeated vice presidential nominee.

    Love those soundbites don'tcha. He's not been negotiating with himself, he's been sounding out the republicans for ideas, because apparently he has none of his own on this manner. He's supposed to lead, put forward HIS plan and then let the congress critters debate it. Thus far it's been nothing but trial balloons and, "hey, what do you guys think of that, will that work?".

    The President needs to present a plan the little darling comes up with all by his lonesome (advisors are okay). Show the nation what he wants to do, not in dreams, or in hopes, but in reality. Then you can go after the republicans if you like the plan and they obstruct it.

    Guess what, when it came to the branch that controls the purse strings, so were the democrats. "Suck it. We won" doesn't play well with your opposition that won the House--oh I think only half of what you say is true--Ryan won.
