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

just how dumb are you
The Republican controlled House is solely responsible for the Federal gov't shut down.
The tried 40 times to defund the ACA and each time it was defeated in the Senate. That's American democracy in action, that is how the Founding Fathers set up our gov't and that's how they wanted it to work. Even if it did pass in the Senate, President Obama would veto it. Again something the founding fathers are responsible for.
Its called separation of powers.
What they didn't want is a minority (The House) to circumvent our legislation process by attaching a failed bill to another bill.
want to defund the ACA, then get a majority in both houses of Congress that is veto proof, or also put a republican in the oval office.
Until then, the GOP should stop acting like a spoiled brat and pass a clean CR with no riders
The demokRATic controlled House and Senate. Congress are solely responsible since 2007--2010 losing 750,000 jobs per month, creating the worst recession in 80 years you ignorant idiot...

If congress is responsible for obama's govt shut down, then Majority leaders Pelosi and Reid are responsible for the worst recession in 80+ years you ignoramus... a Housing Collapse, a near financial meltdown, and tripling the debt..

What part of ghetto idiot do you not understand??

If it's ghetto, ignorant, moocher, and idiot, it's free cheese, loser, and liberal..

Sarah Palin finally got her death panels — a direct blow from the Republican House. In shutting down the government, leaving 800,000 people without a paycheck and draining the economy of $300 million a day, the Party of Madness also took away last-chance cancer trials for children at the National Institutes of Health.
And now that the pain that was dismissed as a trifle on Monday, a “slimdown” according to the chuckleheads at Fox News, is revealed as tragic by mid-week, the very radicals who caused the havoc are trying to say it’s not their fault.
It’s too late. They flunked hostage-taking. About 30 or so Republicans in the House, bunkered in gerrymandered districts while breathing the oxygen of delusion, are now part of a cast of miscreants who have stood firmly on the wrong side of history. The headline, today and 50 years from now, will be the same: Republicans closed the government to keep millions of their fellow Americans from getting affordable health care.

The gerrymandering argument is absurd when all redistricting is reviewed by federal courts if there are any objections.

The fact is that most of the country is conservative and the DemoKKrats are holed up in urban bunkers.

Jon Stewart Revisits 'Bullsh*t Mountain' As Fox News Reports On The 'Liberal' Shutdown

Ah, Bullsh*t Mountain, how we've missed you.

As Republicans amped up their attempts to recast the government shutdown as an Obama-helmed initiative, Jon Stewart took a look at how Fox News has taken the ball and run with it... right up to the peak of Bullsh*t Mountain. Not since the 2012 election have we seen such creativity in reporting.

Watch Stewart analyze the powers of Sean Hannity – "The feces is strong with this one," – and many more above.

Republicans have never cared about kids with cancer.

Republicans have repeatedly refused to fund treatment for kids with cancer and are now trying to act like they are the good guys. It's disgusting. How many kids have died because of Republicans insistance on cutting NIH funding?

FACT: In 2010, Eric Cantor proposed a $1.3 billion cut to NIH. The 2011 House Republican budget sought to cut $1.6 billion from the agency and in House Republicans' 2013 budget proposal put forward by Rep. Paul Ryan, cuts to the agency's budget approached 20 percent.

YET, when asked Thursday about the bill to restore funding to the NIH, Cantor said he's "been insistent on making as a priority funding for the NIH, and specifically funding for pediatric medical research." Rethugs are such a repulsive bunch of liars.

Like hundreds of thousands of other federal employees, these are men and women whose contributions have been demeaned by the federal shutdown, who are being asked to work without, at least for the moment, being paid — and who are doing their jobs with considerably more dignity than the House of Representatives has mustered.
“We all owe the Capitol Police a debt of gratitude for their work every day; no finer examples of professionalism & bravery,” tweeted House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio). That’s true. But Mr. Boehner owes them, and the rest of the federal workforce, more than a 140-character message of thanks. He owes them a paycheck; he owes them a budget; he owes them an apology.

Sorry son, but that's not how our democracy works.
if you want to defund the ACA, put it in a separate bill and let it get voted on then signed into law by the President.
why don't you go read the Constitution and learn how our democracy works
lol! That's what Galt was clamoring for before.

Now he's taken the opposite position.

He just can't push his political agenda without being the fool.

I do know that as CinC he is responsible for the Military and its operations.

and most importantly
had the mission failed, you idiots would be blaming him and asking for impeachment charges

BS

"Democrats look even sillier when they refuse to consider changes to Obamacare while the White House continues to roll out unilateral changes to the law. Those include delaying the employer mandate, waiving proof of individual eligibility for exchange subsidies and extending the deadline for small-business exchange applications. Business Insider notes the administration announced that last change 'right in the middle of Obama’s fiery speech' insisting he would not change the law one iota."

Republicans Win Fewer Votes, but More Seats than Democrats

Republicans controlled the post–2010 redistricting process in the four states, and drew new lines that helped the GOP win the bulk of the House delegation in each. Republicans captured 13 of 18 seats in Pennsylvania, 12 of 16 in Ohio, nine of 14 in Michigan, and five of eight in Wisconsin. Added together, that was 39 seats for the Republicans and 17 seats for the Democrats in the four pro–Obama states.

The key to GOP congressional success was to cluster the Democratic vote into a handful of districts, while spreading out the Republican vote elsewhere. In Pennsylvania, for example, Republicans won nine of their 13 House seats with less than 60% of the vote, while Democrats carried three of their five with more than 75%.

One of the latter was the Philadelphia–based 2nd District, where 356,386 votes for Congress were tallied. Not only was it the highest number of ballots cast in any district in the state, but Democratic Rep. Chaka Fattah won 318,176 of the votes. It was the largest number received by any House candidate in the country in 2012, Democrat or Republican. If some of these Democratic votes had been “unclustered” and distributed to other districts nearby, the party might have won a couple more seats in the Philadelphia area alone.

As it was, Democrats scored a moral victory of sorts by winning the aggregate nationwide House vote by nearly 1.4 million. Normally, it is a number that does not have much currency, a matter of interest only to academics and political mavens. But in 2012, the Democrats’“popular vote” victory in the House balloting helped to undermine the contention of congressional Republicans their majority was as much a mandate as President Obama’s 5–million vote, 26– state, 332–electoral vote reelection victory.

The challenge now for House Democrats is to turn moral victories into actual triumphs. It will not be easy. The Republicans head toward 2014 offering little in the way of “low hanging fruit.” Only 15 House Republicans are in hostile terrain, representing districts that also voted for Obama last fall. And few GOP representatives give the appearance of electoral weakness, as just a dozen were elected in 2012 by a margin of less than 5 percentage points.

Funny you should use the moniker John Galt, unlike you, in the book he was a pretty smart man
