Default This is why it is impossible to have an honest negotiation with the GOP

http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/201...3E008002AA7B77

Well, that was quick. For some time it has been obvious to anyone paying attention what the true GOP budget strategy was: demand that Obama make proposals for entitlement cuts, and then they’ll just pronounce themselves unsatisfied with whatever he comes up with, and are indeed very likely to campaign in 2014 attacking him for whatever cuts take place.

But it turns out that they didn’t even wait for any actual budget deal. Here’s Marco Rubio yesterday (via Ezra Klein):

The first part is, of course, simply a lie: numerous reports tell us that McConnell did in fact make precisely that demand. And let’s remember this when Rubio makes his run for the White House: we already know that he’s an unprincipled liar. But anyway, you see how it will go — and why the whole notion of settling matters fiscal with a Grand Bargain was always crazy. You can’t make big deals with a totally untrustworthy negotiating partner.

Propaganda again. Don't link to Pravda, I'm not going to give that rag clicks.

Please paste the relevant passage(s) here. That rag only gives you ten free clicks a month, and I don't subscribe.

If you want to talk about something, post it. Otherwise, I guess it doesn't matter that much to you.

Well since it is so difficult for you guys to press on a link, I posted the exact words in the original post.

Obama did the right thing by promising to starve senior citizens and make payment preferences to Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. There's no way he gets enough support for his agenda if he doesn't scare old ladies dependent on social security for food and medicine.

He should up the ante IMO by threatening to take the food stamps and give them to the banks as payment and at 50 cents on the dollar value for their troubles in having to sell them to food banks.

It's called sarcasm. And that you do not recognize your parties tactics is sad, but not surprising that you would deny it, your media friends make it effective.
