Obama open to compromise with Congress in 2015

Obama open to compromise with Congress in 2015 

Posted: 4:02 pm Friday, December 19th, 2014

By Jamie Dupree

While noting his differences with Republicans on a series of issues, President Obama used a year-end news conference to make clear that he’s ready to make some deals with the GOP Congress in 2015.

“I think there are real opportunities to get things done in Congress,” the President told reporters, though he made clear he wasn’t ready to give the GOP just anything.

“The question is going to be, are we going to be able to separate out those areas where we disagree,” as Mr. Obama rattled off reasons why he’s opposed to plans to undermine his signature health law, water down the Wall Street Reform law and to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

“It’s not going to be a huge benefit to U.S. consumers,” the President said of the controversial pipeline proposal from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Mr. Obama though did not expressly threaten a veto against the Keystone XL, which Republicans may quickly try to get to this desk in the New Year.

On other matters, the President defended his executive actions on immigration, as his move this week to open up diplomatic relations with Cuba, saying it could help chip away at the Castro regime’s hold on that nation.

“Change is going to come to Cuba,” the President told reporters. “It has to.”

Meanwhile in Congress, the divisions within the Republican Party broke out into the open on Friday, as Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) used Twitter to criticize Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for opposing any changes in the way the United States deals with Cuba.

The irony that Paul was knocking another Republican for “isolationism” was not lost on many in Washington, D.C., as that charge has often been lobbed at Paul, and his father Ron Paul.

A day earlier, Rubio had told Fox News that Paul had “no idea what he’s talking about.”

It may be just a preview of the battling to come in 2015 for those Republicans looking to run for the White House – and looking to leave an imprint on the 114th Congress.

The new House and Senate will convene on January 6.

Obama can still do what he wants as the republicans voted Boehner back in office, he has no spine, he folds every time he can, they actually had a meeting with Boehner running it to figure out a way how to convince he people that obamacare was good, he is nothing but a trader to the conservative part

“I think there are real opportunities to get things done in Congress,” said America's number one enemy.

Finally, my paycheck is $ 8,500? A working 10 hours per week online. My brother’s friend had an average of 12K for several months, he work about 22 hours a week. I can not believe how easy it is, once I try to do so. This is what I do.......>>>>http://www.­W­i­k­i-­R­e­p­o­r­t­.­­CoM

What a joke!  It will be the first time that he has been willing to compromise.

Funny how when Democrats are in charge, they say "We won.  You lost.  Get over it." and then ignore the other party unless they are trying to blame one of their failures on them.

Then, when they lose, they are reaching across the aisle shaking hands and chanting "Bipartisanship".


If only Republicans would get the "We Won" attitude, we might be able to save this country...but, I don't see that happening.

So when Barry O had the majority, he wasn't open to compromise, now that he has lost both houses he is now  open to compromise.  Barry O is an ideologue, he does not work with people. He has an agenda to push, and he will push it. He is a community organizer.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,

Jamie, don't be a sycophant. Perhaps you don't write your headlines but exactly where did BO say he was open to compromise with Congress?

iT IS THE FIRST TIME HE HAS BEEN OPEN TO ANY COMPROMISES, SINCE HE HAS BEEN IN OFFICE, BUT THEN THE 47% DON'T KNOW THAT, NOR CARE>

I'm quite confident they will cave. They always have. Why should it be any different now. After all, they are there for what they can get for themselves, both financially and politically. If anyone thinks that they are for the best interest of the people who sent them there,  or the country,,,,well, there is some ocean front property in Arizona thats for sale...Just saying.

When Obama says he's open to compromise, what he really means is that he's open to the Republicans caving in to his demands. If they don't then he'll act (Illegally) on his own...... Two more years of this American nightmare.

@AliciaDalton We know what you do.It probably is easy - real easy. Certainly easier than working with your clothes on.

@JeanetteWiggins Bet that's not all you share. Why don't you put your clothes back on and get a real job?

@JeanetteWiggins Wow.  You need to report KieraBevan for plagiarizing your post. She just copied and pasted exactly what you wrote word for word with the same typos and everything.

@KieraBevan I'm sorry.  but, if you make up to $90/hr what is the deal listing it as $40 to $86/hr?  Did the scammers who taught you tell you that if you make up random facts it makes the post look more believable?

@glenthinojosa Check out KieraBevan and JeanetteWiggins posts above. Maybe they have a better deal than you do.   Maybe it is just they work out of a different third world country.

@Liberalsareinsane Dupree is the epitome of sychophancy.  All that is done in DC is good for him.  His repeated droning refrain is that both sides do it., blah blah blah.  He is very tiresome to listen to since he refuses to take a stand yet he wants to be on Hannity and Cain and where ever he can prostitute himself out to.

@marydsills So, why is your sister's friend making more than you?  Shame on you for not scamming more people than her.  Maybe you aren't working 20 hours a week?  Just lazy I guess.  Maybe you should check out one of the other scam posts.  They make a lot more with a lot less work.

@AngusFincham What is it with these third world scammers?  When they make some money they always buy Beemers.  Why not American for a change?
