Are you comforted when a politician says, "We have reached a bipartisan deal"?
Usually. Of course that could change with the nature of the deal though.
Hell no. It means everybody is getting screwed.
That attitude is the problem with this country right now.
I truly wish that they all would do NOTHING! We are better off in the long run.
No. That means it's a bad deal.
Only when its true.
I wouldn't say comforted but its better than "Once again we couldn't even do shit on the most simple task."
Bilaterally screwed is what that means, too often.
No, it usually means this: Rather than spending money on A or B, we'll be funding both A and B.
I'm not comfortable with anything until I see the details
That's what she said!
Good job, political! Now let's try to be mature.
If a politician is moving his or her lips, I'm never comforted.
No. It means the dems got 95 percent of what they wanted and the repubs are thrilled with the 5 percent as if they did something worth celebrating. It's like when the cat drags a fleshy hair clump into the house and expect you to congratulate him.
Repubs: "see. We only mostly got our asses handed to us."
"Look at us. We're not quite total screw ups."
John McCain: "I enjoy working with Obama. It is the closest I will ever get to being President."
Rubio: "Me too! I am so glad we ganged up and became the invertebrate gang!"
Lindsey Graham: "How are we going to criticize Obama when we are agreeing
You guys sound crazy, and it's those kind of radical perspectives that's driven the Republican image into the ground over the last 20 years.
Don't call me a damn republican!
I'm sure you infiltrate our primaries/help push our party's dialogue to the right, so close enough.
Why do I even call myself a republican?
I hate your damn party, rino.
Okay, good start your own, guys! :) I think we'd all be a lot happier, haha.
I thought "RINOs" liked a big tent for the GOP. From talking to you, I guess that's not the case.
I'm already NOT inside the Republitard party. Quit trying to associate me with you and your kind, rino.
Try winning an election sometime too. I won't be voting for Christie, or bush, or Ryan, or Romney, or Paul, or Rubio, or whatever dumb ass retardlican you can name.
Political. Republicans like left-leaning republicans, also called "moderates." Those are the ones that love big government and don't have any social/moral beliefs. They want your vote, but not your opinion.
I like a big tent, but when have social conservatives ever reciprocated that truce? Exhibit A is that moderates (aka the real Republicans who are actually carrying on the tradition of Abraham Lincoln, IMO) don't have nasty, pejorative...
... nicknames for social conservatives. Moderates are continually ridiculed by Tea Party members and constantly attacked in primaries. It's natural to fight back. And I can't imagine you'd ever vote for a Democrat, so as long as that's the...
... case, you're going to be associated with the GOP, unfortunately. At least until there's a viable third party.
It does suck that people want to associate me with your party, but I enjoy setting them straight. This is about the 100th time I've had the privilege to rail on your party while explaining that I'm not a republican.
You mentioned social conservatives, but this poll isn't about social values and my reasoning is in large measure an objection to the repubs horrid fiscal policy.
Republicans are not fiscal conservatives. You're democrats-lite. Repubs only talk about the budget and spending when they're the opposition party. You guys spend like democrats when in office. Hypocrites at the core.
So I'm constantly advertising against your party on both social and fiscal issues. When combined with the democrats we make a vocal opposition to your moribund party.
You're a bunch of damn liars too.
You inspired a poll, rino. Just published it.
Ryan loves big government. Rubio and Bush love amnesty. Romney is a good man, but he wants to raise the minimum wage just like Santorum. Can I please have a conservative to vote for?
It depends on the deal.
Very. That means they both agree on how to screw us.
Exactly. No doubt about that.
Check to see if the fingers are crossed.
Washington has deteriorated so much, I trust nothing
Chicago is so bad, Al Capone, looks like Abe Lincoln
Nope! I don't trust either party.
I have disagreed with too many so called bipartisan deals to be comforted when a politician utters those words.
You're wise beyond your years.
Well, I have a notebook filled with what I called "Okie-notes". Jk...well the notebook is in my head!
