Far too many Republicans believe that one can deal fairly and reasonably with unreasonable, unfair people. They are wrong.

You are exactly right. And that is one reason that Republicans have been largely ineffective, in and out of power. In the majority, they act like a minority. In the minority, the fail to perform the duties of the loyal opposition because they can't bear to oppose much of anything. They want to go along to get along so they can put all that messy political business behind them, go out on the town with their good friends from across the aisle, and be adored by the press for bipartisanship and compromise. Only fools think it's POSSIBLE to get along with people who hate them and wish them dead.

Why is it always such a shock when news emerges that the government is doing something underhanded and illegal?  The allegations that the IRS was targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny have now expanded to the uncovering of the fact that they were also singling out Jewish groups that were pro-Israel.
