You probably don't hear that type of thing very often, do you? I mean, I thought that kind of thing was passť on that side of the pond.

I can understand and appreciate you fine people not wanting US athletes to have to co-mingle with the riff-raff while collecting their medals. That was very considerate indeed.

No, it IS hypocritical and it is not being patriotic. There is nothing patriotic about the all or nothing obstructionism the Republicans are engaging in.

From your perspective, that is. From the perspective of those they represent, they're doing a fine, and patriotic job, and they probably don't care what you think about it.

But you probably know a little about hypocrisy, after all there are some areas you'd like no give and all take, I'm sure. <ahem> Roe v.Wade <<cough, cough>> labor unions <ahem>

Exactly. For the liberal Democrats, co-operation is forcing the right wing to give in completely. They have one agenda and that is to move the country as far to the left as they possibly can. They NEVER give in.
