"Republicans blame each other after shutdown fiasco
Richard Wolf, USA TODAY 3:56 p.m. EDT October 20, 2013

Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Jeb Bush say the party needs to pick better battles, but Sen. Ted Cruz vows to fight on.

WASHINGTON — Republicans began a new week pointing fingers at each other Sunday following a 16-day government shutdown and near-default that left the nation worse off and the GOP taking most of the blame.

If there was a theme to the round of Sunday morning talk shows looking back at the fiasco, it was the determination of most Republicans — from Senate leaders to past and potential future presidential candidates — to move on rather than focus on this month's failed battles.

Sen. John McCain called the effort to defund President Obama's health care expansion "a fool's errand." Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell vowed there will be no more government shutdowns. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush accused the party of stepping on its message.

"There will not be another government shutdown. You can count on that," McConnell said on CBS' Face the Nation. "Shutting down the government, in my view, is not conservative policy."

"What we need to do is move forward with immigration reform, get a positive agenda for America," said McCain, the party's 2008 presidential candidate, on CNN's State of the Union.

"Obamacare, flawed to its core, doesn't work," said Bush, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, on ABC.'s This Week. "But we don't even hear about that because we've stepped on that message."

That left Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who instigated the government crisis by demanding an end to Obamacare and getting the Tea Party faction among House Republicans to go along, in a somewhat lonely position — at least in the nation's capital.

Appearing on CNN and on ABC, the freshman senator blamed fellow Republicans for dooming the effort by speaking out against it rather than uniting behind it.

"I think it was unfortunate that you saw multiple members of the Senate Republicans going on television attacking House conservatives, attacking the effort to defund Obamacare, saying it cannot win, it's a fool's errand, we will lose, this must fail," Cruz said. "That is a recipe for losing the fight, and it's a shame."

Neither Cruz nor McConnell went after each other personally, but their sentiments were clear. McConnell, as he has done before, compared a second government shutdown following the one engineered by upstart Republicans in 1995-96 to a second kick of a mule. Cruz defended it as a valuable weapon in a tactical war...."

are they really unwanted if they are in Fostercare? Many fostercare parents are relatives. Many children return home-I do not believe they are unwanted. Poor choice of words lily. Disgusting.

A typical moslem in Germany: Just like in the United States, you cash in by having a lot of kids. Bring over a whole bunch of family members, churn out some kids from polygamous marriages (the next frontier in marriage equality) and soon you’re bringing in 10 grand a month)

Kamal (46 years old) and his wife Shadia (42 years old) have ten children under 18 and live on Hartz IV (the German social benefit system). They have a monthly net income of about 3000 €. In addition, all their spending on rent, health care, transport, heating, etc. are paid by the state.

Kamal never worked or had a regular job, never finished school, and never learned a profession. Now he claims that he is “ill.” Klaus, the landlord of Kamal says,“The man is fit.” He even confessed to Klaus that he lies when he says he is ill.“He told me once,‘Why should I work if I can live well without/’” Klaus quotes Kamal.

FYI AMERICA

On October 17, 2013 the people within Our federal government borrowed another $328 Billion Dollars from “The Bank” and signed your name to it. Raising our DEBT to Banks to 17 TRILLION!!!(That's $17,000,000,000,000.00.) Two days later on October 19, the Headlines announce that $1.6 Billion- thats ($1,600,000,000.00) of the money that we just “borrowed” from “The Bank” will be sent to help Pakistan.??

If our country is so broke, that the National Parks were CLOSED and the White House cannot offer tours, and we have a $17 Trillion dollar debt to banks------ why are we sending $1.6 Billion to Pakistan? What could New York, or Philadelphia or Dallas do with $1.6 Billion?.....

What is an "enigmatic group"??

Is that like "blak aliturasy"??

Moochelle and Michael Bloomberg were made from the same Progressive Cookie Cutter. The only difference that I can see, though, is that Moochelle is half-baked, artificially sweetened and chock full of nuts.

Then you must have liked him. Even liberals say he was much more personable, articulate and intelligent in person and in small groups than when he spoke in public and to large crowds. He was never comfortable as a public speaker. Unfortunately, it showed.

He said it to get his socialist supporters like you behind him when he raised taxes on everyone that pays FICA. This includes small business owners who are far from "rich".
It's just another jab at the successful while building up resentment from the dependent class."

Go figure.
The Republicans wasted too much time in 2012 on candidates who never had a chance by virtue of a very narrow base and/or lack of experience. The other problem was that there was no candidate representing low taxes and smaller government without the other baggage.

Seven or eight candidates in a debate is ridiculous, as is allowing DemoKKKrat political operatives to moderate the debates. Galt would prefer debates with no more than three candidates and no moderator, Lincoln-Douglas style.

Perhaps the Conservatives could settle on either Cruz or Paul and the moderates could choose between Christie, Bush, and Rubio, and then let the winners square off.

I have nothing against Bush as a person. He's a nice guy and a great father. A lousy president and not very bright but pleasant none the less. Reminds me a little bit of Gomer Pyle.
Bush graduated from Yale University a B.A. in history.

He also attended Harvard Business School earning a Master of Business Administration.

He characterized himself as an average student at Yale.

But he is the only U.S. President to have earned an M.B.A.

He's smarter than you think. Just not great at public speaking.
