    The one issue of Obamacare NIETHER side is wanting to budge, so it is BOTH their faults. The Republicans if they REALLY cared about the debt and spending, would take Obamacare off the table and then go for other cuts on the Dems side. Thay aren't. And I'm not saying the Dems are any better, they BOTH are at fault.

    Neither side is working towards a compromise.
    Actually while I totally agree with you that this is both parties fault I do have to say that Republicans actually are compromising more than the Democrats on this. Republicans first demanded that Obamacare get totally defunded. When Democrats said no to that the Republicans reduced their demand to allowing regular civilians the same exentions that both Big Business and Congress got. Where as Democrats have said no to everything regarding this situation.

    Making them at fault.


    The only side not budging and not attempting to compromise has been the Dems.
    No, that's incorrect. And using your logic, the Dems said they would negotiate if Obamacare was taken off the table. The Republicans won't budge on taking Obamacare off the table to go after other cuts. They aren't willing to compromise either.

    Coming up with one extreme demand for another is not compromising.

    Umm...how was the last one extreme? It gave the same extension to regular folks as was already given to big business and congressmen? If it wasn't extreme to give to those two then why is it extreme now?

    And the Democrat stance that the entire federal government must be funded, as is, no questions asked, before negotiations can begin is compromising how? And remember the so-called "compromise" from Democrats on the budget is to increase spending from the sequester totals from earlier this year - so, for Democrats, compromise means one step forward, then two steps back.

    It was extreme because it was being used to kill the bill. No amount of spin can change that, the GOP wanted to delay it for another chance to kill it. An extreme position.

    Hence why I said BOTH parties are at fault, neither is wanting to really compromise. I don't hold the Dems better than the GOP. BOTH are horrible and their only success is putting us in debt.

    The problem is the GOP isn't interested in stopping spending either, they just want to spend on the things THEY like. The Bush years taught us that and Romney even more with wanting to give the military MORE money than they were asking for. Neither side is trustworthy.

To place barriers around monuments that are otherwise unfenced... to place orange cones and block highway pull-outs so people can't take pictures of Mt Rushmore... are things that simply make them look petty and childish. Those actions make them look unconcerned for the average citizen, that they're using the average citizen as a pawn, and it's repugnant.

    Just because they can do something doesn't mean they should. They have forfeited any claim to the moral high ground by being so petty.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    this is not an attack ,its a question of why you speak derogatory of listeners on the right, yet you are a listener of the left.

    are both sides speakers, full of hot air?
