Consider the ficticious transcript from C-Span of the following liberal idiotic proposal from the House floor: Democratic proposal on unemployment: (currently speaking is House Majority Leader Stenny Hoyer) ‘During these trying times, we are seeing unemployment rates of nearly 10%, and things do not seem ready to turn around anytime soon owing to Republican obstructionists blocking our efforts to turn the tide. Extended unemployment benefits are costing this great nation of ours billions and billions of dollars. Accordingly, we propose to eliminate through the facilitation of thermo-nuclear techniques the following metropolitan areas that have been reporting the largest outflows of unemployment disbursals. This proposal will save the treasury 287 Billion dollars annually, or 2.87 Trillion dollars over the next decade, and the President expects to see a bill on his desk no later than next week. It is our intention to deliver on his request with a bi-partisan bill we can all support’ (huge wave of applause here from the left side of the aisle). Proposed Metro Areas for elimination: Albany NY, Buffalo NY, Trenton NJ, Cleveland OH, Pittsburg PA, Portland ME, Berlin CT, Providence RI, Hackensack NJ, Patterson NJ, Hoboken NJ and Camden NJ. Republican response to the proposal now on the floor of the House: (Minority Whip Eric Cantor currently at the podium): ‘Madam Speaker, the minority position on the proposal at hand is that it will create nuclear fallout that will wreak havoc onto neighboring states, and this does not even consider the massive casualties that the Democrats seek to cause in the name of saving tax payer dollars. We are unified in our opposition to this bill on humanitarian grounds, and the bill as written has no support of our party at this time.’ ABC Anchorman George Stephanopoulos: ‘Well, there you have it; Republicans at it again obstructing Democratic efforts to save tax payer dollars. Again we see Republicans rebuke the extended Democratic hands of compromise as the ‘Party of No’ throws a monkey wrench into the president’s agenda yet again with their mean spirited partisan politics of obstructionism. Back to you in New York, Diane….. ' ___________________________________________________
President Obama is on the attack against the GOP these last few days, accusing them of playing politics and chastising them for not meeting the president half way on any of his dreadfully destructive policies such as Cap and Trade, Health Care Reform, Card Check, and on and on… The above analogy is extreme, but the point is valid: what would be the compromise in the scenario above? Remove Trenton and Hoboken from the list, and nuke the other metro areas and show at least some savings on unemployment disbursals and provide the president with his bipartisan victory? And in the real live America we all live in today, we would obtain the same disastrous results by adopting any, and I mean ANY of Obama's hare brained liberal nostrums in compromising on any of his Marxist agenda. Moral of the Story: compromising on how much destruction we can levy on Americans gives us only destruction in the end.
