I love this revealing comment by an utterly brain-dead twit named Denise Williams
My opinion remains mostly unchanged due to one main reason learned long and hard in the Clinton administration. No matter what you offer, no matter how many concessions you make, you’ll never get Republican Congresscritters on your side. Keep offering face-to-face meetings in the Oval, cocktail parties and Super Bowl get togethers, but you’ll change nary a vote. Anything else is naivete.
Note what Denise is not willing to offer: substantive changes in the contents of the bill. See, Denise is one of The Elect. A person who possesses the One True Way. So Denise couldn’t possibly offer a change in the bill. What Denise wants is right, what you want is wrong. No compromise is possible. Or, rather, “compromise” is you giving up what you want.
Hey Denise, remember Welfare Reform? Remember “triangulation”? Clinton got Republican votes when he was willing to work with the Republicans, not just wine and dine them. You enjoy the next two years, while the Democrats have the House, Senate, and White House. Just like they did in 1993 and 1994.
