how long has the Republican party been around?
any idea of when they'll finally get it right?
Look at the Reagan years. One of the most prosperous times in our history despite Carter's recession and "malaise". Yes, the democrats tricked him into raising taxes a few times and he raised taxes on certain things himself a few times and, yes, we spent a lot on defense because peace through strength is a wise strategy in a volatile world.

Also, look at the Clinton years and his Republican Congress convincing him to lead right of center and passing all the legislation that reformed Welfare and balanced the budget.

Then take a look at GW Bush's years even after 9/11. The GDP and employment were running very smoothly. Until the Democrats ignored his warnings about the impending housing crisis.

You do know JFK would be considered a staunch conservative in today's world, don't you?

You should be asking the question "when is MY party ever going to get it right again?"

Obama hasn't refused anything, he hasn't even been presented with a budget to sign. The Memorial was closed due to the Tea Bag sponsored government shutdown which closed all national parks, take it up with their leader Ted Cruz.

You bought it you own it Tea Baggers.

Military personnel: Barring last-minute congressional action, members of the armed forces would have their paychecks put on hold while they continue to work.
democrats would not sign the bill to pay the military--but you knew that didn't you? Hairy Reid threw the military in the garbage, treats them just like Hillary Clinton always has.
Hairy Reid and the democrats said there is no negotiating when it comes to the military.

I am truly embarrassed for the entire black race that you call yourself black. Not because you hate black success but, because you think that's all we care about. You need to read the Willie Lynch letter.

Poll: Americans reject GOP shutdown strategy

US House Speaker John Boehner speaks to the press at the US Capitol in Washington on October 1, 2013

Hours after the government officially lurched to a partial shutdown, a new poll released Tuesday showed Americans really aren’t crazy about Obamacare — but hate the Republican approach of closing the government in an effort to repeal it.

The Quinnipiac University national survey found that the public is split on the Affordable Care Act, with 47 percent opposed to it and 45 percent in favor. But Americans, by a lopsided 72-22 percent margin, say shutting down the government is not the answer.

Would the GOP fare better by refusing to raise the country’s debt ceiling to stop Obamacare? Not much: Americans oppose that approach 64-27 percent.

That’s likely to cheer the White House, which warns that failing to pay for programs Congress already has approved — the purpose of raising the debt limit — would trigger a default that would send shock waves through the fragile world economy.

How about cutting off funding needed to implement the law, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement? Americans oppose that 58–34 percent.

The survey confirmed what many Republicans have worried about for weeks: Shutting down the government may harm the GOP brand with independents and damage the party’s very real prospects for holding the House and retaking the Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections.

The poll found Republicans favor the shutdown by a 49-percent to 44-percent margin. But independents oppose it 74-19 percent, and Democrats reject it 90-6 percent.

It’s a national poll, and mid-term elections are decided district-by-district and state-by-state. There are still 13 months before voters cast their ballots.

But Quinnipiac found Democrats enjoy their largest edge yet over Republicans in a so-called “generic” ballot, 43 percent to 34 percent...."

So Lily and the Bunch support rape of children because they support rapists as long as thats who Oblamer supports A Young Girl’s Account of Sex Abuse by Syrian Rebels: Victims of US-Sponsored Insurrection
This is the story of Rawan Milad Al-Dah, a young Syrian girl explaining how she was repeatedly raped and abused by members of Syrian rebel factions.
In a related article, Mariem Karoui writes the following about such devastating occurrences:

“A problem remains to be exposed. All human rights activists following this story voice their concerns about the case of these women and their offspring. Concerns are being expressed that the situation will soon become an explosive matter, making it necessary to treat these pending files with urgency.

“An overwhelming majority of these sexual Jihadist women are shunned by their families for the scandal they brought on them…

“Such terrible cases should not be swept under the carpet. Unless authorities act on them with great scrutiny, they will only worsen. Serious measures should be taken to assist victims, and recruiters should be identified and arrested, to allow the judiciary to carry out its duty.”

These things are ok because Oblamer supports the people that are commiting the rapes
