“I am perfectly happy to compromise and work with anybody,Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians. I’ll work with Martians. If — and the if is critical — they’re willing to cut spending and reduce the debt.”
‘Got that? He’s willing to compromise, as long as your solution matches his solution exactly. It’s a little like saying you’re willing to compromise on any breakfast meat, as long as it’s bacon’.
