"I think it's abundantly clear that negotiating with Democrats is a useless and destructive endeavor."

In MadCap bizzaro world perhaps it is clear.

In the real world, it isn't so clear because the Republicans have never really started negotiating with Democrats. Actual negotiating involves making compromises.


Republicans did compromise. They agreed to increase both taxes and spending, just not as much as Democrats wanted. That's a compromise. Not a good one for Republicans, but it's a compromise.
