    So all in all the Whig Party is doing fairly well.

    I wouldn't call Bob Woodward a conservative would you? Yet Bob Woodward criticized Obama for not being willing to negotiate with the Republicans. Now if Woodward sees Obama as being unreasonable, what makes some of you so convinced that the majority of Americans, conservative or not don't see him and the Democrats as being unreasonable?

    Right. Because the GOP won't give them anything better in terms of negotiations.

    Maybe you don't get the concept of negotiation...where one side gives up something and gets something in return.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    This last March the Dems passed a budget in the Senate which Boner refused to allow deliberation on in the House. Your move.

    Oh, I'm sure they are giving up a bunch in just passing CRs. There is directed funding and earmarks galore that they would want to act on, there is adustments in all kinds of stuff that they want to be sure. But the alternative is the House sitting in a corner refusing to give anything up that they want.

    Didn't you see the Christmas List the GOP had attached to their resolutions?

    So I suppose that is why liberals want the republicans to negotiate away their gun rights when trying to pass gun control or how they wanted republicans to negotiate with them on healthcare reform.
