commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The GOP…… the party of NO????

Well that’s what most American’s think……

According to a Washington Post/ABC News poll conducted earlier this month, 58 percent of the 1,004 respondents said Republicans have not reached out enough to Obama.

Other data in that poll indicated the Republican Party has made gains on Democrats over the past year. But it still hasn’t been able to shake the “party of no” label.

Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) said he is not losing sleep over the polling data.

The Peach State lawmaker contended in an interview with The Hill that GOP supporters, including the independents that elected Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) don’t want Republican lawmakers “compromising” with Obama.

“Our constituents are overwhelmingly telling us do not compromise on legislation that is just increasing the size of government and the deficit. At this point Obama, [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi [D-Calif.] and [Majority Leader Harry] Reid [D-Nev.] are well-defined as big-government, big spenders and people don’t want us to reach out to that,” Kingston said.

Like Kingston, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) said, “I’m not worried about this poll number.”

Other Republicans have a different view.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) recently said the GOP cannot simply be the party of no and must work with Democrats to offer remedies to the nation’s problems.

Graham acknowledged “there a few [Republicans] who just want to say, ‘We’re not going to do anything his year.’”

A Few?……
