    Obama's recent rhetoric accuses Republicans of attempts at ransom and of holding guns to people's heads. So I don't believe the White House spokesman's statement. He is telling a white lie on behalf of his boss.

    Therein lies the problem: each party acts as though things would be MUCH BETTER if they were the ONLY party in existence.

    That's like a family in which the two parents each believe that it would be better if the other one died. It's not a happy family and the kids will not approve.

    Very true. If the GOP went away you would wind up with the "convervative" democrats against the others.

    There will always be an opposition party. It may not be Republican or Democratic. Political parties have changed several times in US history.
