cue independent freethinking posters who contend that democrats have been unwilling to negotiate with those poor, good-intentioned republicans. it's not like they passed the republican plan for hcr, extended the bush tax cuts, and agreed to $38 billion in cuts only to be rejected because they didn't want to advance radical republican social agenda masquerading as "important budget cuts" (defunding planned parenthood).

to republicans, "compromise" means "we'll have our way and our way only or we will hold the economy and legitimate government programs hostage until we get it"

Yeah, that looks about right. I don't like the way republicans have handled their business since... well, since the Bush years, but specifically since they won back the House. I don't like the way they've chosen debt reduction over job creation as their #1 issue (this also goes for Obama).

I don't like the way they've refused to work with Obama despite him being as moderate as they could possibly have hoped for with a democratic President.

At the state level, I don't like how they've handed the responsibility for paying down budget deficits to the middle class. Cuts in education, public safety, state jobs, all cuts that affect the poor and middle class MUCH more than the rich, whom they have refused to even discuss raising taxes even a penny on despite all reason and common sense.

And I've already gotten into this whole voting rights debate here and their proposals to limit student and minority voting under the guise of "fraud prevention."

That said, the democrats had it all in the palm of their hand and could have really done some positive things, but as usual they didn't have the spine to stand up for the middle class and caved when the GoP attacked them.

Lord, this country BADLY needs another party because with the two we have, I'm not sure there is a "lesser" of two evils anymore.

Man I have been preaching this, I'm glad someone else understands that they totally blew it when they had the chance. Get ready for a more populous tone in 2012 from the Dems, if not they will be screwed.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
