Yes, Obama said he would not negotiate...and he wonders why things do not get done.

Why should Obama negotiate?  They wanted him to surrender, not compromise.


Because the president cannot make laws, cannot fund his agenda, cannot do anything without Congress.  Because every president before Obama understood that and negotiated and compromised to move the country forward.  Because he's the president, not the king.  And by the way, YOU don't know if they wanted him to "surrender" or what they wanted him to do.  You don't know because the only way to find out is to negotiate and King Obama thought he was better than every past president and that he shouldn't have to do that. 


If somebody following the news cannot determine what one party expects why do you claim to know exactly what Obama should have done?

Please!  Let's get away from the childish insults for once and actually discuss in an adult and thoughtful way the actual subjects for each thread.  We should just ignore the foolish "trolls" in this group. They behave more like 6-year olds than as well-read adults.

 

They try very hard to provoke people so they can report them in the hope they will get banned from the group for several days.  They do this frequently and we are wise to them and their devious tactics.

 

Do not pay any attention whatsoever to their infantile remarks.  These people are not well.  They exist in their own little world that is impenetrable by facts, common sense or logic.

Well, Raff - I guess you got your answer from the schoolyard gang. Fortunately, the AARP board creators had the wisdom to install the "scroll" function.

Agreed, and isn't it an extraordinary coincidence that they're all members of the Gobshyte Clan? They share pictures and post each others comments................it's almost as if they're just one person with multiple IDS!   *cough*

Your problem is that on a lot of subjects you do not understand them, but try to make people think you  do. When they correct you then you want to ignore them, and that leads to   you never becoming proficient in any of them.

Perhaps you should take your own advice and quit posting the same thing over and over in different threads.

Rafferty - the bigotry and sociopathic extreme right conservatism evident in a majority of your posts indicate that you need to clean your own house first.

Critical - this has been discussed before. Funding originates in the House. They had a budget that the Senate and White House would not accept. The Senate and the White House had a budget they liked that the House didn't. 

 

Stalemate - it was only the media doing the Dems bidding that blamed the House.

"This is not a class room and this is not a grammar, punctuation, or manners comment... it is my question about why another poster would make a post that basically qualified part of what Kidboy asked...  Since you did not make the post, you cannot answer in respect to his intent …Can you?"

 

I agree nadryn.

 

Have you noticed how shrill and defensive the far-left members of this group become when you post any discussion that is the least bit critical of Barack Obama?  

 

Their immaturity and uncontrolled emotions are clearly showing through!   These people need professional help in the worst way!

The one who really needs help is you. When one posts under 10 to 12 different names, using different sexes, uses the same posts over and over again in many different threads on different subjects really  screams to all I am nuts.

Most who left the discussion groups here left because of the new changes/format that AARP implemented, not because of other posters.

 

Could this topic itself be considered as 'baiting'?   Just asking.

Seems like his post could considered to be a personal attack and baiting also, don't you think?  It's curious why it has been allowed to stay since in was an attack on several posters here.

I remember posting up here during the last shutdown. I remember posters on the right supporting the GOP demand to defund the ACA as a condition for a budget. They did not want compromise--they wanted to gut the ACA, a nonnegotiable position.

 

cat - and the Dems said, "Nope, nonnegotiable". So I have a problem tracking your logic that somehow or other ends up with only the GOP being unwilling to compromise.

    The short answer is YEP!

 

     As I have said before, there are lots of topics that could be discussed and most here would logically agree.   Most here can write on any side of a discussion, because we have read information from a variety of sources - this particular thread is pretty hilarious - in that the author appears to have a singular focus - and gets called out on it.

 

      For example yesterday:   I wrote a thread about the incident in Las Vegas and queried - is this the "revolution" that one blogger here was calling for?   I never received an answer....does that mean that I control this board?

I could also ask what right do you have to tell others how to post?  Come on we're not in a classroom.
