Go back to reading DailyKos.
John Boehner might as well resign his Speakership or give it back to Nancy Pelosi if he can't bring the clean budget bill (without the anti-Obamacare crap) to a full House vote. He's stuck with saving the grace of his Speaker position by siding with President Barack Obama, the Democrats and the moderate republican majority in both Houses of Congress.

They're acting like they represent the other half of us who want their voices heard when it comes to something as important as this. What do you...and Obama...and Reid...NOT understand about the majority still being against Obamacare?
Leaders bring opposing sides together and at least get some on board to support any major piece of legislation.
This "leader" alienates, demonizes and pretends the opposition doesn't exist.
We simply don't appreciate being bullied into submission by a man who thinks he's the crowned king of half of his kingdom. This is America. It's that disconnect thing again.
As long as this president keeps on pretending like we don't exist and irrelevant, we're going to keep reminding him - and you - we do and are.
You did have your voice heard Carol, there was an election on November 6, 2012. The candidate who promised to repeal Obamacare, Mitt Romney, lost decisively. In addition to that Republicans lost seats on both the Senate and the House. But instead of accepting the fact that you lost, you right wingers are acting like four year olds, throwing a tantrum and damaging the economy at the same time.
I'll ask you again Carol, what party took a blood oath to oppose, obstruct and block any legislation that this President would propose? What party quite openly stated that their main goal was to prevent this President from getting a second term? If that's not alienating an demonizing I don't know what is.
You're an idiot Carol!

Obama closes food stores for dependents of active duty military fighting a war, but keeps his military-based golf course open.

That just about says all you need to know about Obama.

Democrats already voted to fully fund that store.

Republicas said these families can only use these stores unless the ACA is defunded & delayed.

Dumbwaiter & Boehner thing their politica; agenda is more important than military families.

BTW that golf course if funded through user fees.

Obama strikes again! Al-Libi's capture represents a significant blow to what remains of the core al-Qaida organization once led by Osama bin Laden.
Quite an accomplishment since he's had his hands full with home grown Republican economic terrorists.

Wrong Carol, lies are lies. Your "liberal media" is a myth.
If the media are so liberal, why do they keep focusing on debt/deficit/austerity and not the arguments against austerity that all the liberal economists are making?
If the media are so liberal, why did they ignore the 2011 Tar Sands protests in DC and the hundreds of arrested protesters, including a renowned NASA scientist?
If the media are so liberal, why have they completely ignored the controversy surrounding the drilling of the Alberta Tar Sands?
If the media are so liberal, why did they parrot Bush's link between Iraq & 9/11, and his claim that Iraq still had WMD's, while ignoring the many experts who could disprove these claims?
If the media are so liberal, why did they cheerlead us into the Iraq war, while censoring those who opposed it?
If the media are so liberal, why did they virtually ignore the largest anti-war protest in the history of mankind on the eve of the Iraq invasion in 2003, but have since given plenty of mostly uncritical coverage of much smaller Tea Party protests?
If the media are so liberal, why did they give so much free publicity to Paul Ryan's "brave", "heroic" budget plan while they ignored the Progressive Caucus's People's Budget?
If the media are so liberal, why did they run the fake ACORN voter fraud stories & the faked ACORN video stings, then virtually ignore it when ACORN was vindicated and proven innocent of both?
If the media are so liberal, then why do the "liberal" TV stations gladly air tons of liberal-bashing campaign ads by right-wing groups?
If the media are so liberal, why do they keep covering-up for Wall Street and hiding the rampant criminality there?
You Carol are the queen of willful ignorance.
The debt has gotten so huge, you can't ignore it anymore.

So renowned you can't recall his name? Why protest tar sands in Canada here?

Who's parroting Bush's link between Iraq and 9/11? I haven't heard this.

If you recall, the Democrats voted for the war in Iraq. The media was just covering the Democrats' ass.

What protest? Are you sure it was the largest in history? My sister is an old hippie living in DC who goes to all these so-called "anti-war" protests, and she never heard about it.

What "people's budget"? Would that be a budget for the Peoples Democratic Republic of the United States? Maybe it was just as ludicrous as the only two budgets Obama ever submitted in 5 years, which got a sum total of ZERO votes. That's NONE, NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH.

It was criminals on Wall Street that caused the economic collapse for the Democrats, while they gave a fortune in bribes to Obama.

People are beginning to figure out this administration is filled with pathological liars. Perhaps the media has to save at least some of its ratings. Thier ratings are going down the toilet, and they have to make some changes. I think they're trying to at least come close to the truth, and maybe their ratings will improve.

It was Obama's decision to close it. You can't run away from that fact.

Republicans didn't say anything. It was Obama's decision to close those stores.

The grocery store is funded through purchase of groceries just as much as the golf course if funded through user fees, dumbass.

Obama closed grocery stores for dependents of active duty military who are fighting a war and keeps his military base golf open.
That tells you all you need to know about Obama.

It's obvious what the Democrats and Republicans can't agree on. So, how about we find simething the Republicans and Democrats can agree on:

Funding the VA and servicing veterans.
Nope, the Democrats don't like that.

Funding the national parks and keeping them open for the people to use.
Nope, the Democrats don't like that, either.

Democrats don't like veterans, and they don't like people who use the national parks.

So, what can the Democrats agree to? Anything?

Or, are the Democrats just holding the government hostage demanding ransom money be paid for their Marxist welfare programs?

Really?
Let's see now....

Al Qaeda is the military arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, and has invaded Syria.
The Muslim Brotherhood is in the White House and has policy making positions, among other agencies in the Department of Homeland Security.

Maybe this is just Obama doing his job and settling internal political conflicts within Al Qaeda, like the drone attacks in Pakistan are for. You have to know there is a fight inside Al Qaeda for control. Obama is just being muscle for the Muslim Brotherhood and eliminating their political foes inside Al Qaeda. That way, only their friends will control Al Qaeda.

Obama has put the United States in the position of being the enforcer for Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Sounds like a win win situation, being a republican living in a welfare Red state. If it weren't for the democratic Blue states, you people would've died off a long, long time ago!

This is like the sequester,.

Republicans want to cut spending but are gutless when it comes to cutting back or cutting programs.

This way its always Obama's fault when someone does without.

Democrats voted to keep those stores open.

Republicans said the stores can be open only if the ACA is defunded & delayed.

Those are facts.

Hey, maybe we can defund those oil subsidies & then we can see if you can actually make it on your own in the real world.

That's just stupid &, far fetched but, let's say you're accurate with your assumptions/assertions. How is that a bad thing when, as history proves," my enemies enemy is my friend. That would mean, he's eliminating Al Qaeda, at the same time keeping the Muslim Brotherhood in check. Sounds like a great plan to me. Much better than Bush's plan &, response to 9/11. Meanwhile, you've never answered to the connection between Bush & binLaden!

There were no spending cuts in the so-called "sequester". The fact is, the government will spend more money this year than last year. There were no cuts. The only "cuts" were taking money from programs Obama doesn't like to increase funding for programs Obama likes, like buying 2700 tanks and 7000 machine guns and 1.6 billioin rounds of ammunition for the DHS, for just one example of programs Obama thinks are more important than funding the Department of Defense.

It's obvious what the Democrats and Republicans don't agree on. How about we find something they agree on.

Democrats don't like veterans.
Democrats don't like the people who use the national parks.
Can you think of any other group of people the Democrats don't like? All you have to do is look at the bills on Harry Reid's desk that he won't let get to the Senate floor for a vote to see.

The Democrats are holding the government hostage and demanding ransom money be paid to their Marxist welfare programs.

Amazing!
So now you're saying Obama should NOT have killed a terrorist that blew up U.S. Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya, which killed more than 220 people.
Then that should be all we hear from you about Benghazi.
