Barack Obama, our next President

I get it.
When I pay more in taxes for oil subsidies to provide your worthless ass a job, it controls my life.
Increased costs of policies have been going on for years. So I guess the insurance companies control my life & have been for years? Food has gone up so farmers control my life?
You;ve paid paxes ( Or so you clam) so the government has been controlling your life for decades.
This really pisses me of. My tax dollars supported the government that has been controlling your life that long & yet you are still a dumbass. That is a prime example of wasted tax dollars. I'm riting my Congressman to complain.
What oil subsidies?
You still haven't been able to find any subsidy paid to oil companies.

I agree, it took Obama far too long to take a stand against the extortionist tactics of the Republicans in Congress. I hope to see more of the same kind of backbone in the future.
Google "Republicans to blame for shutdown" and see how many hits you get. Read it and weep: The GOP is more unpopular than Obamacare!!
Could it be these "extortionists" are just Obama's enemies who represent half of the country this president wishes to simply ignore, demonize and dismiss?

Clinton compromised and negotiated with Republicans. Same with Reagan and both Bushes compromising and negotiating with Democrats.

In fact, every president has done that as far back as I can remember.

So what's wrong with this one besides being too cool for school?

You know the ACA must be doing well with the exchanges.
Im thinking half the people logging on to the exchange site were right whiners seeing how much more expensive coverage would be for them.
Note that Carol or Dumbwaiter aren't here broadcasting how expensive it will be for them.
Flack hasn't even reported in but then again, he's shopping for a used policy to save money..
0.5 (that's zero point five) percent of the people who go to the website sign up.
That should tell you something, dupe.

I'm too busy calculating how much my taxes will go up with no increase in income because the company contribution to my health insurance will be taxable income.

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?
Really Davie Boy? You are as dumb as you post? IF.... you knew anything about business, except showing up on Friday to pick up a check, you would know it's more involved than that? Continue to live in you Demorat dream world. You are the typical Democrat voter.

Would that be the same ACA that even the Democrats who wrote it are now calling a trainwreck?
And, 3 years to put a system in place that is already making errors when it isn't crashing.
Believe it was Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller who said it was "beyond comprehension".

I kinda like that one better.

Harry Reid can end the government shut down today. All he has to do is put the bills from the House on the Senate floor for a vote. There is no mention whatsoever of ObamaKare in any of those bills.
Perhaps that's the problem? So, Democrats are holding the government hostage, right?
lol! hey son!

feeling stupid about your own boy copying Alinsky?

<quoted text>If a Republican majority in congress voted for a bill and it went through a Republican controlled senate and was signed by a Republican president, it's the law of the land, so be it, that is how our government works.
The law of the land also says the president can't write his own version of the law and decide who must obey the law, and who is exempted.
That's how our government works... well, according to the Constitution. The Democrats have another type of government in mind where a dictator decides everything.

32. Would a shutdown put the brakes on implementing the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare?" No. The state-run exchanges for the uninsured would open as scheduled Tuesday. "The marketplaces will be open on Tuesday, no matter what, even if there is a government shutdown," President Obama said Friday.
33. Why not? Like Social Security or Medicaid, Obamacare is a permanent entitlement that isn't subject to annual funding by Congress. "Many of the core parts of the health care law are funded through mandatory appropriations and wouldn't be affected," Gary Cohen, the Health and Human Services Department official overseeing the health care rollout, said last week.

So basically it's just Republican Tea Baggers grandstanding.
Then there is no need for federal funding, right?
So, why are the Democrats shutting down the government?

Typical liberal hypocrite.
Hold your ground then son.

Galt should be all up in arms about this bootstrapping, but apparently it's not a bother this time around.

Obama calls for striking union workers to be fired

Hilarity ensues as a panicked Barack Obama – fresh off his defeat at the hands of elderly World War II veterans – grabs a microphone and makes a compelling case for firing every union worker who goes on strike:

http://www.humanevents.com/2013/10/03/obama-c...

The poor saps cheering him are almost as funny as Obama himself. The only thing that would make this clip better would be a quick reaction shot of an aide face palming himself into a coma, or maybe a union boss beginning to applaud until he realizes what the President just said, at which point he slowly stops clapping.

Why aren't cons cheering at achieving their goal of shutting the government down?

In fact, I wonder why no surprize isn't here talking about the stock market 'climbing'?
