Poll: Americans not happy about shutdown; more blame GOP
Fully 72 percent of Americans disapprove of shutting down the federal government over differences on the Affordable Care Act; just 25 percent approve of this action.
Republicans in Congress receive more of the blame for the shutdown: 44 percent of Americans blame them, while 35 percent put more blame on President Obama and the Democrats in Congress. These views are virtually the same as they were last week before the shutdown, when Americans were asked who they would blame if a shutdown occurred.

the right wing fascists were losing last week so why would they think it would be any different this week?
CBS "news"....
Weren't they busted for inventing fraudulent information and blatantly lying in an attempt to steal a presidential election?

I rest my case.

Why would small businesses need more breathing room if they weren't suffocating already under this law?
They've had four years to prepare to properly comply with the law. They've even downsized and stopped hiring to prepare for the overburdening new regulations.
The truth is Obama needs another year of breathing room to get his disaster off the ground.
Obama, like his flailing vision, weren't ready for prime time.
The respected PNC Bank economic outlook survey indicates that 78% of the firms surveyed are not delaying hiring/staffing because of the health care law. Many of those firms are more worried about government spending cutbacks however.

Someone is lying.

Tropical Storm Karen Advisory #15

Current Location: 22.1N, 87.6W
Geographic Reference: 487 NM south of New Orleans, LA
Movement: NNW near 10 kts
Our Estimated Maximum Sustained Winds: 50 kts with gusts to 65 kts
National Hurricane Center Estimated Max Winds (as of 8am CDT): 50 kts with gusts to 65 kts
Organizational Trend: Steadily increasing
Current Hurricane Severity Index: 5 (2 size / 3 intensity)
Max Predicted Hurricane Severity Index: 8 (3 size / 5 intensity)
Max Predicted Radius of Tropical Storm Force Winds: 90 NM
Forecast Confidence: Average
Changes From Our Previous Forecast
There are no significant changes in our forecasts track. We are now forecasting Karen to reach hurricane intensity during the day on Friday.
Our Forecast
A recon plane investigating Disturbance 58 found a well-defined circulation center and winds to 50 kts. Based on this, the National Hurricane Center has upgraded the disturbance to Tropical Storm Karen. Our forecast takes Karen a little west of north over the next 36 hours. By Saturday morning, we think that Karen will begin to feel the effects of an approaching cold front as it is located about 85 NM south of the mouth of the Mississippi River. Southwest winds aloft ahead of the cold front should turn Karen northeastward toward the Florida/Alabama border. Landfall should occur late Saturday night or on Sunday morning.
Though Karen should reach hurricane intensity on Friday, increasing wind shear on Saturday should lead to some weakening prior to landfall. We think that Karen's winds at landfall will be in the 50 kts to 60 kts range. Once inland, Karen should weaken rapidly as it accelerates to the northeast along the cold front.
Expected Impacts Onshore
Northeast Yucatan: The heaviest rains will remain to the east of the Yucatan, over the Yucatan Channel. However, accumulations of 2-4 inches are possible today. No major flooding is likely.
Northern Gulf Coast:
Rain : Squalls could reach the coast between southeast Louisiana and the western Florida Panhandle on Saturday morning. The heaviest squalls will move onshore Saturday night and Sunday morning. Rainfall amounts of 4-8 inches with isolated totals of 10 inches will be possible over a small area near and to the east of where the center moves inland. Localized flooding is possible.
Wind : Sustained winds in the 55 to 55 kts range are possible within about 45 NM east of where the center moves onshore late Saturday or early Sunday. Isolated gusts to hurricane force are possible.
Surge: A tidal surge of 3 to 5 feet is possible near and within 45 NM east of where the center makes landfall.
Expected Impacts Offshore
Northern Gulf of Mexico: The first squalls are likely to reach the deepwater lease areas offshore southeast Louisiana (Mississippi Canyon) by late Friday morning. Tropical storm conditions are expected on Saturday morning. Winds of 45 kts to 55 kts are possible offshore Southeast Louisiana and Mississippi on Saturday morning. Wind gusts could exceed hurricane force. Conditions will begin to improve Saturday night after the center moves ashore.
The next advisory will be issued by 3 PM CDT.

You sure live in an alternative universe, to even approach believing this is good for Republicans is laughable to say the least.
We will see how much RESPECT the republicans get in the mid terms, a dying demographic and each year their support numbers drop. Two elections on and they will never be seen again in your lifetime. Try and find anyone under 30 who shares your ideas, not even in the middle of the bible belt. It's a lost cause!
There's a reason Obama has felt threatened by any opposition from the beginning starting with the tea party movement and attempting to silence Fox News and now Republicans after winning back the House.

There's a reason he demonizes and dismisses his opposition at every opportunity.

His vision has always been a one-party power grab monopoly and a single-payer total government control health care system. It can't be accomplished without blind loyalty from his base and destroying any resemblance of a two-party pro-capitalist America.

He was taught well by his Communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, and he has forgotten the lessons.

Time for you to either wise up or flatly deny loyalty to the Constitution and admit you are an anti-capitalist - the two foundations by which we were founded and live by.

At this juncture, these are your only two choices and the line between them couldn't be drawn more clearly.

Were any cops acting stupidly offended? Were any Special Olympians offended?

The Garcia's complaint was probably the result of some Democrat staff lackey bringing it to the attention of the VFW. I'm sure most of the 89 to 99 year old survivors watched all 21 hours of Cruz's speech on C-span. Also of the up to 10,000 estimate only 100 to 650 were Americans soldiers.

Please relate that "information" to the fact that Obama's economic "recovery" is creating 5 times as many part time jobs as full time jobs.
Thank you.

Allow me to help you with your obvious confusion.

The Democrats already voted to fund Government.

Republicans said no funding unless the ACA is repealed, defunded, r delayed.

I am surprised that you are nor worried about your job and/or a pay cut since your subsidies were also not funded. No drilling permits, all that stops. So who will need a washed up dumbass pretend oilfield engineer?

It really sounds like you think there is a conspiracy among all these companies.
So, tell us why this multitude of companies across the entire country are cutting FT positions and replacing them with PT positions. The only associated change is ObamaKare.
It seems you are promoting the idea that all of these companies are involved in a conspiracy to make Obama look bad.
You're not one of those conspiracy nuts, are you?
"So, tell us why this multitude of companies across the entire country are cutting FT positions and replacing them with PT positions." Total bullshit.

Yesterday it was only 30, according to some other Democrat dupe here. How about you get your stories together.
According to your assessment, the momentum against ObamaKare is growing.

There are 535 members of Congress. If it's only 80 (according to your bullshit), then there are 455 members of Congress that agree with you. 455 to 80. That doesn't sound like significant opposition to me.
Since it's obvious your story is bullshit, what's the real story?

What an idiot!
It doesn't align with what is the prelude to a single-payer system and total government control of health care as Harry Reid admitted on a PBS interview recently.

ObamaCare isn't really about helping anyone. It's about control. It's why he and Obama won't budge an inch for fear of losing sight of that control which is within their grasp. It's the prelude to the beginning of the end and a state-controlled system.

Those on the left either want government to have power over them or they're blinded by the fear of admitting they are wrong.

It's a human behavioral phenomenon that some people will never admit to being wrong even if it's to their own detriment. Germans who lived through the 1930s and 1940s had to grapple with how so many could have been so wrong long after the war had ended.

It can't be easy coming to terms with being on the wrong side of history when mass hysteria takes a stronghold and makes it easier to deny.

Finally tomorrow, after 58 straight bogus monthly job reports from Obama's Bureau of Labor Statistics we won't get one that is fraught with lies! Due to the shutdown there won't be a report.... Someone else finally gets a chance to win the Betty Crocker Fudge award.

Democrats want Republicans to just go along.

Democrats are unwilling to compromise, even with the separate Medical Device Bill.

Democrats are the Party of No.

Why are the Democrats shutting down government?
