The Post Turtle does not want compromise - he wants capitulation. A sociopath neither feels any remorse over lies nor does he separate the truth from lies - because in either case it's only about getting the Post Turtle what he wants. Look up the basic characteristics of a sociopath - watch about 20 minutes of the Post Turtle on video (don't take others word for it)... he matches up exactly.
Call or write your congressman - tell them that we want no more negotiations or discussions with the Post Turtle. Real cuts in spending are necessary - tell them to do their job.
