I’ve heard this line about Republicans being “obstructionist” thrown out again recently. First of all, Democrats are the king of obstruction. Secondly, good for them. I wish the Republicans would take a page or two out of their book.
Compromise is not a goal. It’s a strategy. The goal is to do what is best for the country, and when both sides are so fundamentally at odds, sometimes you can’t find middle ground (and so often that middle ground is “fine, we’ll only roll back our liberties a little bit“).
I don’t want cooperation. I want to win.
