On one hand, it's a diplomatic, and probably the "right," thing to do.

On the other, it smacks of weakness, and we all know the Democrats are a ruthless, power-hungry lot willing to take advantage of every opportunity they have.

Ah, the GOP in a nutshell. Reid hands you a knife to slit his throat [and that of his merry minions] if the GOP takes control of the Senate. The GOP, without waiting to see if they do take the Senate, hands the knife back to Reid. Add a letter, and change it from GOP to PUTZ.

Some Republican members are willing to go back to way things were before Harry Reid took the gavel.


Of course... hand power back to the Democrats... how else would they do it...

Roll it back.

Don't think so.

Give the lack of filibuster to the Dems good and hard.

In the game "Prisoner's Dilemma", a winning strategy is to echo your opponents actions.
Strong or conciliatory.  Whatever your advisory last does.

I recommend they retain the present fiasco, and let the dems appreciate it fully.

You get no respect by acting like a pansey.

This is exactly what I would expect from pubbies.
They only have one strategy, bend over and take it up the ying yang.

Why dick around?  Just vote Dem and watch the faces drop.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
