Skip to comments.Dana Bash on Cantor Loss: 'Sad' That Republicans Now Won't 'Compromise'
Posted on 06/11/2014 10:55:51 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Sniff! With the stunning Eric Cantor congressional primary loss yesterday, the Republicans are now less willing to "compromise" on such programs as immigration "reform" and other Democrat inspired legislation according to Dana Bash of CNN who thinks that's sad. So sad.
Bash dropped even the slight pretense of non-bias this morning during a CNN New Day report on Cantor's historic loss. She declared it "sad" that the election result now makes it unlikely for Republicans to act like Democrats. Break out the violins and play an appropriately mournful tune as Bash indulges her sadness:

I hope she is correct.No compromise.
I thought they were splitsville?
Saw that this morning. Blecch!
Hey Dana..suck a lemon
Shame that Obama and other Progressives won’t compromise.
Shame they BREAK THE LAW when they fight to the bitter end.
When your instinct tells you to compromise, there is no core principle which you will not agree to bargain away. Democrats never stop trying to advance their agenda. If republicans are always willing to meet in the middle, the line moves ever leftward.
A vote for the GOPe is a vote for democrat policy.
Whys is “compromise” always a one way street with the Rats? When was the last time they compromised on anything?
if sad means awesome, then yes.
Like the democrats compromised on anything.
This might cost Republicans the Hispanic vote! And being for amnesty would have gained them that vote? Not!
Here, the Titanic is sinking and everybody's running around screaming about the stowaways on board.
The Tea Party and every right-thinking American needs to get focused on the BIG problem: the "silent" coup d'etat of our free constitutional republic by the unconstitutional $4 trillion federal government and the usurpation of the Constitution by the dangerous and traitorous power gathering dictatorship of Barak Obama.
Why is no one talking about this? Is it because no one ELSE is talking about it? Or is because the Left still subtly controls the "talking points" because they run most of the news broadcasts and newspapers?
Who on the Right is going to QUIT PLAYING POLITICAL RING AROUND THE ROSY and start talking about the ONE THING the Left doesn't want to hear talked about: the salvation of America by cutting government by 80% (=$800 billion, still too big but it's a start) and taking down the would be dictator in the White House.
What the Democrat really means is George Soros now has to buy another pet RINO to polish off this country ,before we all possibly wake up.
would somebody please post Dana’s address on all appropriate web sites so that illegals will have a place to stay...
Have you ever noticed that Democrats are NEVER expected to compromise with Republicans? This shows that the Democrat media expected Cantor to cave, as Republicans always do.
Decades and decades of compromise has brought this country to
the verge of collapse, Mr. King.
The media idea of what constitutes “compromise” is very odd.
The extremist “liberal reform” position on immigration is presumably to let anybody and everybody in, while putting them on the short path to citizenship and voting.
I would contend the extremist “conservative reform” position on the issue would be to have a massive manhunt and deport all illegal aliens, then provide true border security and jail anyone who hired illegals.
A 50/50 compromise would then be to leave things as they are now, little attempt to secure borders, no real prosecution of those who hire illegals, no attempt at all to track down and deport “non-criminal” illegals.
But for the media, the actual compromise position is viewed as the extremist right position, and “compromise” and reform consists only of movement from there towards the liberal position.
Let’s keep it in perspective. Democrats, like the good communists they are, NEVER compromise.
I'n thinking the word she was looking for was "capitulate", not "compromise".
We’ll compromise, we won’t sell out to the left-wing position. BIG difference.
Waah waah waah.
To hell with compromise.
It’s sad, so sad
It’s a sad, sad situation
And it’s getting more and more absurd
It’s sad, so sad
Why can’t we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word
Lefties are always wringing their handkerchiefs because they lack critical thinking skills or the ethos that guides the rest of us.
They figure if they bus-in a bunch of young illegals (AKA future democRats) we’ll say `Ah, never mind’, because, you know, it’s for the children.
Mean what? That the Democrats will now have to?
Compromise has resulted in the HELL that “both” political parties have put us in.
I haven’t seen the democrats compromise yet!
Compromise has been defined as a partial surrender. The right has been surrendering ground so much that they are now to the left of center.
Compromise has been defined as a partial surrender. The right has been surrendering ground so much that they are now to the left of center. And don’t even know it.
The media narrative follows the Democrat narrative. That the Republicans must do all the compromising. This is brainwashing pure and simple which is fairly easy with our publik skrool edumacation system turning out more dumbed down youths each year who know nothing about American civics and American history. Whose textbooks had five pages on Harriet Tubman and one paragraph on (evil slave holder) George Washington
Did Liberals compromise when they forced “O” into the nomination of his party and the HE in turn consistently fails (REFUSES) to compromise on basic and required procedures in the execution of his duties?
Imagine if things were to turn around enough that Democrats would have to compromise. They would choke on the progress.
I think they probably compromise every day. Obama’s true intention is to model the US after North Korea. The fact that he is temporarily accepting less than full blown totalitarian communism is a “compromise”.
She's wrong. It's the American people that aren't willing to compromise and they said so. Loudly.
A big thanks. Compromise is for losers and the Republicans and Americans have been losing for a long time.
Why is it a one way street with the GOP and it;s sycophants?
enough compromise with them as well.
Yes it is from an Islamist word that means submit. :)
Compromise to a dem/lib is agreeing with what THEY want.
Spot on, that’s exactly how they’ve done it for centuries.
Who would have thought the voters didn't want Republicans to act like Democrats. Well, who besides Cantor, McConnell, Graham, McCain....
When you compromise with ‘evil’...evil wins.
You’ve got the most important post here, and nobody has commented on it?
You’re right, there is a far larger battle going on, and it needs to be won.
Think we'll need more than just a couple of us to fix it.
I always get these two women in the Media mixed up
I’m happy with compromise - as defined by my first x-wife - “Do it my way or I’ll make your life intolerable” ;’)
Blow it out yer keester.
Seems to me a Democrat dominated congress wasn’t one bit interested in even talking to us in the years 2008 and 2009.
Despite your boy king’s assertion that speaking to your opposition was the best policy.
Leave it to a Bolshie to equate caved with compromise.
The communists also like the media narrative that the Republicans are “the Party of ‘no.’” As though it’s a bad thing. And just yesterday I saw a news story where their icon, the Potemkin Village capitalist Warren Buffet, said that the the most successful people in the world are the ones who say “No” the most often.
I’d like to see some GOP Congressmen and Senators adopt that Buffet quote on a daily basis, and attribute it to him.
