Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

GOP Donors Revolt Against Republican-Led Government Shutdown

It’s not just Democrats who are angry at the Tea Party-led shutdown. Republican donors are furious their party has managed to ‘grab defeat from the jaws of victory’ on Obamacare—and some are withholding funds.

“We are finding a marvelous way to grab defeat from the jaws of victory,” said Fred Zeidman, a Houston-based businessman who was a major donor to both of George W. Bush’s presidential campaigns.“The way we are handling this has been a mistake from the beginning. I think we misread where the country was.”

Zeidman pointed to the way the Republicans handled Syria, which, he said,“allowed the administration to fall on their own sword.” He contrasted that with the negotiations around the budget, which he said have overshadowed what should be a winning issue for the GOP, Obamacare.

“The Tea Party is not looking at the big picture,” he said.“In the long run it will have deleterious effects on the whole party when we could have taken the high road. There is so much going on right now with Obamacare, and no one is saying a word about it.”

“I am not writing a check to anyone,” he added.“That is not working for the American people.”

Bobbie Kilberg, a Republican fundraiser who has worked for four Republican presidents, echoed Zeidman. She has hosted fundraisers for ideological warriors such as Reps. Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor, and is hosting Arkansas Senate candidate Tom Cotton later this year, but she said she will not give to the NRCC.

“When you have a small segment who dictate to the rest of the party, the result is what we have seen in the last two days,” she said.“People need to stand up and not be afraid of the Tea Party.”

“This may be a turning point,” she predicted.“People may say,‘Enough already.’”

Obamacare has little effect on business.

Let me repeat this for you dumbasses out there.

96% of all business have less than50 employees & would not be effected.

Of those with 50 or more, only 0.2% do not offer insurance & would be forced to offer insurance by Obamacare.

You people are being duped once again by the lies from Republicans.

Just how GD stupid are you people?

Tell me Moocher Eed, what is Obamacare controlling in your miserable life. Other than making your Medicare better.
Nice Slur, Moocher. Good thing there isn't a fine for racial slurs or you'd be broke.
How is you car insurance?
1-800-F*** YOU
Obamacare's national hotline spells out an important message to all Americans
Need health insurance? The Obama administration has you covered. Simply dial 1-800-FUCKYO to reach the next available health care provider.

Far from being a mistype, that’s the official number that Health and Human Services wants Americans to dial when seeking health care. Obamacare’s national call center really did list its number as 1-800-318-2596, helpfully spelling out President Barack Obama’s tendency to blatantly flip the bird in plain view. After allowing for the lack of letters attached to 1 on a traditional American telephone keypad, the number spells out a clear message. For every duped voter, every young invincible weighing the cost of a penalty versus a newly tripled yearly deductible, every ailing old granny in a wheelchair (whom, remember, Paul Ryan wants to push off a cliff) who needs adequate and affordable health care, Obama’s message is:

1-800-3(F) 8(U) 2(C) 5(K) 9(Y) 6(O).

I never said that would not happen.
I said that employees with FT benefits are not being cut to PT to avoid health benefits because of Obamacare. You are just too stupid to get it.
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.

Where does he get off giving away an additional $340 million to muzzie bas-turds that hate us? That's like $1 out of every American's pocket, or better expressed as $5 out every person's pocket that actually pays federal income tax.

17 shut-downs since 1976-Only while O'bama was squatting in the White House were any shut down on the WH mall. Actually Dick the Turbin flocked to the WW2 Memorial and begged Americans to look at him look at him-and then he coerced a few vets into talking to him and made the 5 news. Disgusting Durbin.

Hope and change...

and football...

"The U.S. Air Force Academy football team has played the Naval Academy every year since 1972. In 1976, when a government shutdown was caused by a Democratic-controlled Congress and a Republican was in the White House, the game was played.

Not this year."

Like we don't know that game.
Democrats already voted to fund al of that without any non budget riders.
Why should they have to vote again?
The Senate already voted down the Republican bill.
Boehner won't put the Senate bill to vote because he knows that Democrats & sensible, non fuckhead Republicans would pass it.
So, what you're saying is, there's no difference between Harry Reid and Boehner, right? We already know that. Boehner is a Democrat wearing a RINO costume.

Harry Reid has a set of bills on his desk to start the government again. All Harry Reid has to do is put those bills on the Senate floor for a vote.

Why does Harry Reid and all the Democrats in DC want the government to stay shut down?

A man who attempted to sign up claims he was threatened with driver’s license being revoked, federal tax lien on home. A man who attempted to sign up for Obamacare online was told that a fine of over $4,000 dollars a year for refusing to take out mandatory health insurance could be taken directly from his bank account, and that his driver’s license would be suspended and a federal tax lien placed against his home, according to an entry on the HealthCare.gov Facebook page.

See this is how dictators operate. Do democrats actually think they will not be treated the same way?

Oh wait this guy voted for O'bama.

Ted Cruz blasted by angry GOP colleagues

Ted Cruz faced a barrage of hostile questions Wednesday from angry GOP senators, who lashed the Texas tea party freshman for helping prompt a government shutdown crisis without a strategy to end it.

At a closed-door lunch meeting in the Senate’s Mansfield Room, Republican after Republican pressed Cruz to explain how he would propose to end the bitter budget impasse with Democrats, according to senators who attended the meeting. A defensive Cruz had no clear plan to force an end to the shutdown — or explain how he would defund Obamacare, as he has demanded all along, sources said.

....as the government shutdown heads into day three, a number of Republican senators privately blame the Texas freshman for contributing to the mess their party finds itself in. And now that they’re in it, they say it’s up to Cruz to help find a solution.

“It was very evident to everyone in the room that Cruz doesn’t have a strategy – he never had a strategy, and could never answer a question about what the end-game was,” said one senator who attended the meeting.“I just wish the 35 House members that have bought the snake oil that was sold could witness what was witnessed today at lunch.”

At the Wednesday lunch, Cruz was asked what he would have done had GOP senators united to filibuster the House bill.

“He kept trying to change the subject because he never could answer the question,” the senator said.“It’s pretty evident it’s never been about a strategy – it’s been about him. That’s unfortunate. I think he’s done our country a major disservice. I think he’s done Republicans a major disservice.”
