So they pass a spending increase and a debt ceiling increase and the republican leadership's biggest complaint is that they wanted the debt ceiling raised even higher?

Wow.

Grin Grin Grin And the sad part is that their talking points while Obama was president is that we should not leave this debt to our grandchildren.  I told you that the GOP was full of shit.  They warp the minds of the liberal haters just to get votes.  The only people they care about is the very wealthy.

NO STUPID obama wanted to raise the debt ceiling to bring in and support muslims and other foreigners when we can't even afford to give our senior citizens or Veterans a decent income. Trump wanted the money for OUR citizens who were affected by Hurricane Harvey BIG DIFFERENCE DUMBASS.

Republicans too ignorant to figure out how to use Trump to their advantage. All Trump wants to do is win and Republicans have been too busy fighting among themselves to give him any wins... Dems now figured out how to use Trump to get what they want, this won't be the last time they do this.... stupid Republicans don't know how to win.

With that said, a 3 month extension isn't that big of a deal, but had someone like Rubio worked w/dems in this limited capacity Trump supporters would be calling him a worthless RINO, just sayin'.

Republicans DID win.  All 3 branches of government, remember?  Republicans apparently don't know what to do AFTER they won.  They built a platform on opposing Obama, and have to re-learn how to legislate.  And Trump, as the bomb-thrower he is, ain't making it easy for them.

:My opinion, I think it is a tactic to embarrass the republican party who also seems to want to undermine his Presidency.  Trump is not and never has been a conservative so this move for him is far more easier for him to do then say, Bush.  It seems to have accomplished the desired affect on the Rep party.  Now we will have to wait and see just how this plays out.

So, he wants a Democratic Congress that he can work with? Is that his ultimate aim?

Under the kindest scrutiny, Trump could be seen as doing a Clinton-style triangulation.  He's leveraging the 2 parties against each other to get things done -- acting as an independent in the process.  This should have been how he approached his presidency from day one.

Given Trump's history and general ignorance, however, it's much more likely that Trump wants to disrupt republicans at least as much as democrats.  He prefers chaos, because he believes people will reach out to him in times of chaos.

Trump's Early Christmas Gift to Democrats

In a surprising blow to his own party’s congressional leadership, the president on Wednesday struck a deal with Democrats to package nearly $8 billion in Hurricane Harvey relief with a three-month extension of government funding and increase in the debt ceiling. Trump agreed to the request by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer over the objections of Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had wanted a longer increase in the debt ceiling to prevent Republicans from having to take multiple, politically painful votes to raise it in the coming months.

“We essentially came to a deal, and I think the deal will be very good,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One after meeting with the top four congressional leaders at the White House. In a sign of how the meeting went, he praised the two Democrats he had until recently called “obstructionists,” and he neglected to mention Ryan and McConnell at all.

Trump even held out the possibility of giving Democrats a much bigger prize in future negotiations: a permanent legislative fix for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children who were protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which he announced would be winding down. “Chuck and Nancy would like to see something happen, and so do I,” the president said.

Yeah, .. Trump has been giving the democrat liberal socialist party ''early Christmas gifts'', especially to the democrat party that despises him the most, along with the corrupt liberal news media, right?  Grin

Do you suppose that both, the democrat party and the liberal news media NOW have finally got Trump WHERE they want him, .. or COULD it be that Trump has them where he wants them, along with the worthless Rino/Establishment members of the GOP up on Capitol Hill?

Oh sure, .. the democrats, the media and those Rinos, .. ALL who HATE Trump have shown that they really have been successful at finally getting Trump in a corner,  Grin so that they can now take him down, right?  Smiley
