but blind rejectionism and obstruction are not helpful to the national discourse, because it prevents rational discourse and compromise...

one can argue as to the extent republicans engaged in rejectionism and obstruction in the last congress, but it appeared to be quite prevalent to the untrained eye...

we need dialogue, not rejectionism...

discussions, not ultimatums...

both sides need to learn how to negotiate in good faith or we're ****ed in the long run...

heh, **** me running... i always liked that expression...
