Obese Republicans are more abundant than fit Democrats. Case in point Gay Karl Rove and impotent Rush Limbaugh.

George Washington when he left office stated that no Party should declare war on the US Government. Heed his advice Republicans or it will lead to your demise.
It's not a war. It's more like an intervention to save an addicted wasteful overspender.

Boehner Has Few Words After Government Shuts Down

Asked what he would say to federal employees who would be affected by the shutdown, he ignored the question.

When Bush passed the costly prescription drug bill that was fine. But Affordable Care Act is awful. A Democrat idea. Republicans are hypocrites.

Why should he say anything? The reporter misdirected the question, he should he asking Harry Reid, not John Boehner.

and just think...the shutdown will drag the deficit down even more than the 35% that it's already dropped this year.

US Congress shut down the Government. You can't re-fight the 2012 election in 2013 Republican losers. The will of the American people has spoken. Obama has give and give to Republican demands until he had it with them. Republicans are afraid Americans might like Obamacare.

do you think there will come a day when republicans won't blame every mistake they make on democrats?

for example....since Bush couldn't stop 9/11 then Clinton should have. since Bush wouldn't stop giving home loans to "those with bad credit histories" Clinton should have stopped it. since Bush wouldn't stop cutting taxes while outspending the last 2 liberal Presidents, then Congress should have stopped him.

and so forth all day long.

Sounds like you never watched any National Party Conventions.

At the Democrat Conventions the television cameramen have to set up 100 feet away from the delegates to run a panoramic scan of the participants. Even then with wide angle lens they can only film three or four of the fatties at a time.

I saw enough Tea Party conventions to see if they lost fifty pounds, all they would have to do is look behind them to find it.

Richard Nixon set such a good Republican example on how to dodge prison. He led others astray.

No obstacles? Just a requirement that you must have a special photo ID that is only available in special places at are few & far between.

11-12% of LEGAL: voters do not have a photo ID.

The risk s the potential of a medical event that can cost you everything you own and/or destroy the ability to continue in your work.

Parkinsons? Stroke? Cancer?

Take the cost of insurance & subtract the benefits you get. What is it worth?

I bet you carry car insurance beyond injury & liability. I bet you carry fire insurance on your house.

Obama's and Democrats record spending and deficits? If not restrained they'll double bush's spending.

Watch in 5 to 10 years, history will prove Obama to be the most crooked president ever?!

"real dumb"
Let us take a look. In this state a photo ID is required to drive a car, to get into city halls, to board an airplane, to enter the county court house, to be in an establishment, bar, cocktail lounge, tavern that does not permit minors, that sells spirits, to cash and EBT check.
Why are you so darn dumb? Do you practice?

You can fly anywhere you want without a photo ID.

I haven't been carded in decades to buy alcohol or tobacco.

To think 11-12% of eligible voters can't get into city hall is stupid.

Urban Blacks are leery about obtaining photo IDs. DMV conducts computer checks for criminal history and outstanding warrants on photo IDs. There's most of your 11-12%.
