I can't wait to see them in action making idiots of themselves every day. LMFAO!

Victorious Republicans face familiar dilemma: fight or cut deals

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Victorious Republicans appeared at odds on Wednesday over how to capitalize on their new control of the U.S. Congress. Some lawmakers were eager to use their new muscle to step up attacks on President Barack Obama, while others talked hopefully of compromises that could lead to rare bipartisan legislation.

The strongly diverging views were an early indicator of the task ahead for House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner and likely new Senate leader Mitch McConnell, who will have to find a way of reconciling moderates and conservatives in their caucuses to show Americans that Republicans can govern and not just obstruct Obama's legislative agenda.

If conservatives seek confrontation with Obama that threatens a government shutdown or a market-rattling stand-off, that could hurt Republican hopes of taking back the White House and holding onto their congressional majority in 2016.

and christie shouting down that heckler was what should happen way more often..watch it on youtube and he was well within his right to shut that fool down. 

Joe Blow --- 6 years ago -

Yeah right. Presidential material from the RWNJ's forthcoming. Let the fun begin!

Yay, he will represent our country well. LMFAO 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 6 years ago -

The liberal rage continues.

Wow. How many more days of these sour grapes are we going to have to endure from the KU left? 

Joe Blow --- 6 years ago -

Speaking of idiots. ^ 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 6 years ago -

Rage on....... rage on.

You need more cheese with that "whine"?

Love seeing these KU liberals seethe. 

Ed Earl --- 6 years ago -

What is the term the liberals use on here all the time?

I remember!

Butt hurt.

Joe has a bad case of butt hurt. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 6 years ago -

I absolutely agree with th Reuters article- it's going to be a mission for Boehner to find a way to get the tea party to work with the dems, if there's any chance to beat Clinton in 2 years- my fingers are crossed they'll rise above petty behavior- 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

Btw, I'd vote for Christie- 

Work in Progress --- 6 years ago -

Why in the WORLD would they work with the dems when they were elected NOT to? You know who works with democrats? Other democrats. If the people wanted them to work together, they would have voted dems back in.

Stop falling for democrat talking points. When the dems win, it's all "elections have consequences." When the pubs win, it's "we all have to compromise."

Bs. The whole point of the checks and balances is to keep them from working together. . .against us. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

So you're saying people want gridlock to continue? You're way to smart to actually believe that! People voted for ending gridlock!!! 

Work in Progress --- 6 years ago -

Gridlock is good! Gridlock is the whole point of the separation of powers! It was set up to be gridlocked! 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 6 years ago -

THere won't be total gridlock, there will be deals cut. POTUS gets some of what he wants in a particular bill if Congress gets some of what it wants. THis is not a new situation. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

Oh, brother.... 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

Emperor, you're a lot more realistic and sane with your answer- 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 6 years ago -

Gridlock is good! Gridlock is the whole point of the separation of powers! It was set up to be gridlocked!

THere's a lot of truth to that. Its suppose to force compromise; something the current POTUS has yet to do. COntrast that with Bill Clintons approach to the same situation when he had to compromise with Congress and it was a win/win situation for America, for the most part. 

Work in Progress --- 6 years ago -

TD, you've been listening to the complicit media with democratic talking points and you don't even realize how much you've bought in. Yes, gridlock is the whole point of the system, which is something you should have learned in high school. The only time is gets whined about, is when dems don't get their way. Figure it out already, you are being played.

Good grief. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

Do you not see the difference between debate and gridlock? The end result of debate should be compromise- you should have learned that in middle school. Sometimes one gets more, and vice versa- Clinton was impeached, which kind of highlights the pubs feeling about him, but guess what? He and Newt worked together, and balanced the budget! See how that works? 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

And Work- don't get all your info from Fox- 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

Emperor, I didn't see your post before I posted mine- great minds... 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 6 years ago -

great minds...

Indeed.... 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

:)) 

jacobson --- 6 years ago -

Why in the WORLD would they work with the dems when they were elected NOT to?

Now that is the truth. They need to fight for what is right.

The end result of debate should be compromise- you should have learned that in middle school.

People should have learned in middle school that good doesn't compromise with bad. 

Work in Progress --- 6 years ago -

They were elected to stop Obama. If they forget that, they will not be elected again. This shouldn't be this hard to understand, unless you don't listen to Fox because some nitwit told you not to. 

Alaska Again --- 6 years ago -

I think Congress is finally waking up and understanding that their job is to represent those who elected them to office. The American people are sick of this administration's BS. The Democrats that are up for re-election next year are fearful of losing their seats. No one up for re-election wants to be associated with Obama and his policies. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 6 years ago -

No one up for re-election wants to be associated with Obama and his policies.

But why? We keep hearing from the KU liberals about how wonderful Obama is and about how his policies are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

You would think that associating yourself with this popular leader and his over-achieving successful policies would be the way to win an election.

NOT!!! 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

they're now calling themselves the party of Bill Clinton- I'm not arguing the pub ideology regarding fiscal matters- I agree with that- 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

there must be some compromise, however- you do this and we'll do that- 

Alaska Again --- 6 years ago -

You can't comprise with bad policies. The election was a wake up call to Congress. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 6 years ago -

here must be some compromise, however

Where was the compromise earlier? 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

Soup, Obama was willing to give up a lot the summer before the election- he offered to cap the amount to one million- after the election, he was bitter, and we ended up with $450,000. per couple, $400,000. per individual-we're better than that- 

OL AG 89 --- 6 years ago -

Let's put the poo on the other foot. What if the Dems had held onto the senate Majority and even gained seats in the house?
What would obama said at his press conference? Would he still be willing to work with the "other side of the aisle"?

We, the intelligent know the answer, but what do you liberals say? 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

I don't know or care- I just know elected officials should do the right thing for the country- 

Alaska Again --- 6 years ago -

Elected officials should do the right thing which is represent the people that elected them. 

smartypants --- 6 years ago -

I just know elected officials should do the right thing for the country

The system was built for compromise. What happens when compromise is put aside is like a cancer on the country, and that plainly is not healthy. All you need to do is look at our history to see it. The framers put the issue of slavery on the back burner, it festered for years until reconciliation was virtually impossible.

I've been hearing the the Republicans talking about compromise and working together to get things done, now that they have the extra seats in Congress, but I don't believe them. There's too much at stake for the party, and compromise unfortunately is seen as weakness.

I don't believe that is the case at all. It takes a sharper mind, a stronger will and more than the usual courage to find compromise. It's too bad that our employees in Washington haven't been smart or strong or courageous enough to go there for us. 

Alaska Again --- 6 years ago -

When did Obama and the Democrats compromise?
