8Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9"All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me."
10Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.' " - Matt. 4:8-10.
If only John McCain had been there. If he had been, he might have said something like this;
"I think what you two need is someone who knows how to reach across the aisle in a bi-partisan way and work out a deal. I know how to do that! Now, Satan, Jesus has already come a long way in recognizing that there is a place in this world for the Prince of Darkness, and that God has been willing in the past to give you a little leeway; remember Job? Alright, then! So Jesus isn't willing to worship the ground you walk on, worship is over rated anyway. What we all really want is a little respect, right? So, what would you be willing to give if I could persuade Jesus to think highly of you?"
Absurd? Not at all! This is exactly what Sen. McCain was doing at town hall in meetings in Arizona today; stumping to make a compromise with the devil. Bipartisanship is a myth.
What hope has bipartisanship ever offered to us but to slow the rate at which socialist forces have been advancing in this country? The Democrat idea of bipartisanship is that Republicans do all the compromising until the Democrats get everything they want. A good example of the Democrats notion of compromise is the Weiner Amendment. In response to complaints over the length, complexity, and clamour over all the controversial issues with HR 3200, Rep. Anthony Weiner offered HR 676 which would scrap HR 3200 and simply expand Medicare to cover every American.
The American people are winning this debate. We do not need any help, nor do we want any help, from the 'me too' Republicans. As it stands right now, the Democratic Party is 'all in' to receive all the blame for the health care reform bill, why would the Republicans want board that sinking ship? We all know that any serious discussion of 'health care reform' has to begin with 'tort reform'. By making tort reform the 'line in the sand', the Republicans can take the high ground and be out of the path of the destruction which is descending upon the Democrats.
