Barack Obama, our next President

Cruz: We've Already Compromised

I guess you've got to be really, really smart to say things this stupid. Ted Cruz says that his side has already compromised. They wanted to fully repeal Obamacare but they compromised and agreed only to demand that it be defunded.

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/edblog/cruz-we-v...

fully repeal. failing at it 40 times. compromise?

so Ted, what you want doesn't seem to matter.

"People are saying now that before the government shutdown congressmen went out and got drunk, celebrating that they had shut down the government. This is the kind of thing that could damage their 10 percent approval rating."

"Texas Senator Ted Cruz gave a 21-hour speech on the floor of the Senate during which he read Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham, did an impression of Darth Vader, and admitted his love for White Castle. I'm not sure what Cruz's speech was arguing for, but I'm guessing legalizing weed."

National Cancer Institute Funds Tea Party Witch Hunt

What was the National Cancer Institute (NCI) thinking when it decided to spend $678,952 to fund a notorious political activist to conduct a "scientific" research study designed to prove that the Tea Party was an invention of Big Tobacco and the Koch brothers, rather than a grassroots movement of disenfranchised Americans fed up with both the Republican and Democratic parties?

G.O.P. Elders See Liabilities in Shutdown

The hard-line stance of Republican House members on the government shutdown is generating increasing anger among senior Republican officials, who say the small bloc of conservatives is undermining the party and helping President Obama just as the American people appeared to be losing confidence in him.

From statehouses to Capitol Hill, frustration is building and spilling out during closed-door meetings as Republicans press leaders of the effort to block funding for the health care law to explain where their strategy is ultimately leading.

“Fighting with the president is one thing,” said Senator Roy Blunt, Republican of Missouri.“Fighting with the president and losing is another thing. When you’re in the minority you need to look really hard to find the fights you can win.”

The complaints come from fervent opponents of the president’s health care overhaul, who say that the shutdown is overshadowing discussion of the problems associated with the law and ruining any chance for revising it.

“This is a huge distraction,” said Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee.“Instead of that being the conversation, we’re talking about the government shutdown, and the average citizen can’t help but say the Republican Congress isn’t helping.”

Members of Congress from swing areas and Republican governors appear the most vocal. At a meeting with House Republicans in the Capitol on Tuesday, Representative Dave Reichert of Washington pointedly questioned what the end game is for the party, according to someone who attended and spoke on the condition of anonymity because the session was supposed to be confidential. Mr. Reichert, typically mild-mannered, represents a highly competitive suburban Seattle district.

And on Wednesday at a private luncheon, several Senate Republicans — Dan Coats of Indiana, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire — assailed Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who has led the movement to block funding for the health law.

Ms. Ayotte was especially furious, according to two people present, and waved a printout from a conservative group friendly to Mr. Cruz attacking 25 of his fellow Republican senators for supporting a procedural vote that the group counted as support of the health law.

Ms. Ayotte asked Mr. Cruz to disavow the group’s effort and demanded he explain his strategy. When he did not, several other senators — including Mr. Johnson, Mr. Coats and even Mitch McConnell, the minority leader — joined in the criticism of Mr. Cruz.

“It just started a lynch mob,” said a senator who was present.

If Obama thinks he made some kind of "deal" with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable totalitarian mullahs in the world, he's even dumber than Stewart.

Since the Obama team doesn't seem to care how long this shutdown continues as long as they win, someone should tell them the American people sure do and, while Obama may be cocky and arrogant now, he'll be feeling the heat sooner than later because this is happening under his watch.

He tends to forget the buck doesn't stop with Republicans. It stops with him.

Gallup poll today shows Obama's approval at 41%.

He better have an "attitude adjustment" pronto.

Speaker Boehner came out today and said “This isn’t some damn game.” Then, why doesn't he stop playing games and bring the bill to the floor where Democrats and Republicans are waiting to pass a clean CR?

Enough is enough Boehner. Stop playing games!!!

Fox News Poll Suggests That GOP May Not Be Completely Winning Shutdown Fight

It was sort of lost in a swirl of similar rotten news for the Obama administration, but the last Fox News poll, represented an Obama nadir. At the close of the Syria escapade, Barack Obama's approval rating had crashed to 40 percent—by a 14-point margin, voters viewed his job performance negatively.

The new Fox News poll is another story. There's an obvious lede, with fantastic news for Republicans.

Several provisions of the health care law have already been delayed. Setting aside how you feel about the law, do you think implementation of it should be delayed for a year until more details are ironed out, or not?

Yes - 57%
No - 39%

Hey, that's the GOP's current message, complete with the "since Obama has already delayed part of it" preamble.

But the rest of the poll shines for the Democrats. Obama's approval has ticked up to 45 percent, with 49 percent disapproval, a 10-point shrinking of the negative margin. Congress's approval number has sunk to its lowest level since the failure of the "supercommittee"—dow n from 17–75 to 13–81, minus 58 to minus 68.

There's more:

- A bounce in Obama's approval rating on health care, from 38–58 to 45–51.(This is the highest Obama number since before the 2012 election.)

- A tumble in the GOP's favorable rating to 35–59, with 59 percent unfavorable marking the highest level in the history of the poll.(The Democrats' numbers mirror Obama's.)

- John Boehner overtaking Harry Reid as the least popular congressional leader. Their last ratings, respectively:-18,-21. The new ratings:-22,-13.

- A 9-point drop in the percentage of people wanting full repeal of Obamacare, down on 30 from 39.

- A 53–41 margin in favor of keeping the law, versus repealing it.

Honestly, the second-best number for Republicans is a 42–32 margin on the question of whom to blame for the shutdown. I see some proof, here, of the theory that a tightly messaged "we just want to delay the law" theme can work. But week one of the shutdown has cut hard against the GOP, in this poll.

"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."

NOPE. It wasn't the Democrats. It was Congress that called for the shutdown of all non-essential operations. You wanted it. You got it. Stoop passing the buck.

In a stunning development, military priests are facing arrest if they celebrate mass or practice their faith on military bases during the obama shutdown...

Of course their anger is increasing. They aren't conservatives and enjoy pissing away our tax money nearly as much as democrats.
