Don’t Negotiate with RepublicansAugust 18, 2009 at 10:52 am | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
They don’t negotiate in good faith, and as the article nicely shows, prefer to muddle and confuse the issue so much that no one knows anymore what’s going on. It doesn’t help, of course, that Democrats in Congress are insufferably terrible at allowing Republicans to dictate the course of this bill, even though Republicans are sorely in the minority.
So a message to Congressional Democrats, don’t negotiate with Republicans. They are not negotiating with you in good faith, but would rather find any way possible to undermine your efforts.
