A Lawyer’s Tips on Negotiating for Dummies and Congressional Republicans

You make a lot of good points Kurt but I think you overlook one thing. You assume the GOP wants the same thing as their client. I have seen no evidence that they want to reduce govt., stop Obama or cut spending. Those were all just empty promises they made to retake the House. The GOP as a body has shown nothing but contempt for the people who put them back into power.

Yes I am beginning to think that the Republican Party is just like the Democrats in that their only objective is to be in control. They have not shown they want small government. They want big government only the parts they want big are different than what Democrats want big.
Somewhere, there’s a whiplash lawyer who runs his law office out of a van down by the river who watches the congressional Republicans attempt to negotiate the fiscal cliff crisis and has to turn his head away. John Boehner and his inept coterie of GOP establishment cronies have made every mistake in the book. It’s professionally embarrassing.

Frankly, if these hacks were my associates, they’d be on a street corner with signs reading “Will litigate for food.”

Congress is famously full of lawyers, but what people don’t understand is that it is really full of bad lawyers. Good...
