It's really quite a spectacle isn't it?

When left and right can't compromise and you get all this identify politics BOTH sides are to blame.
You are all being played and you are falling for it.
I have not heard any of the outlandish change America and the constitution or other DNC talking points from the right but maybe I have missed something ?

While I appreciate the time and effort you took to make this post, it doesn't address the question I posed. The economy is doing well by every metric and most people (71%) agree. Yet this person (and many others I have the pleasure of reading) doesn't seem to know basic facts about the economy that's supposedly so terrible. Like wage growth being much higher than inflation. Like the jobs being created are good jobs. Like Christmas sales being really good.
The person I referenced has gotten the facts wrong which are shaping his view. Why does this person not know the facts?

So when both sides do work together, something you all say you want, you *still* aren't happy because they screw us?
Color me unsurprised.
People aren't happy with partisanship because it's nasty and divided and each side is too extreme, but when the sides do work together, no one is happy either because we get horrible things like the Patriot Act and No Child Left Behind or Common Core.
