"GOP is not the enemy". Agreed. However, they seem to be very timid in confronting the enemy. And, some of them want to compromise with the enemy. Well, it's years of compromising that have gotten us into the current fiscal mess. Time to push the agenda of smaller Fed gov't. Let the individual states take on more of a roll. At least it's easier tyo rein-in the states.

All I can say is my Republican Congressman voted against the Fiscal Cliff Deal.

There would not have been a tea party movement if the GOP represented its base.

See Richard Perlman's comment for an example of what is now a common reaction to the GOP.

The GOP is through.

Mr. Bipartisan, President Obama, apparently hasn't done much to reach out to Republican Senators about getting his second term agenda passed and when I say hasn't done much, I mean hasn't done anything at all. More from POLITICO:

President Barack Obama will need Republican senators to pass his ambitious agenda — and the White House has even identified the top prospects.

But after months of buildup and a week since his State of the Union address, key aides on the Hill and at the White House acknowledge that even GOP senators who fit Obama’s...
