lol! Cons are getting their butts kicked and more desperate as time goes on!!!

The People know the cons are playing politics and aren't being fooled by them again!

".... The White House has said repeatedly the president will not negotiate with Republicans until the government is fully reopened and the debt limit has been raised. But it hasn't said the debt limit measure has to be completely "clean" of add-ons.

White House aide Jason Furman told reporters the White House could accept some add-ons if Boehner "needs to have some talking point for his caucus that's consistent with us not negotiating ... that's not adding a bunch of extraneous conditions." Another White House official, Gene Sperling, said the administration could be open to an interim, short-term debt limit extension to prevent a catastrophic default.

Republicans were sticking with a strategy of trying to pin the blame for the shutdown on Obama for being unwilling to negotiate. The House also passed legislation Monday to reopen the Food and Drug Administration, the latest in a series of piecemeal funding bills to advance through the GOP-controlled chamber.

It's been commonly assumed that Republicans would suffer politically from the shutdown and the early polling data seems to bear that out.

A survey released Monday by The Washington Post and ABC News said disapproval of Republican handling of the budget showdown was measured at 70 percent, up from 63 percent a week earlier. Disapproval of Obama's role was statistically unchanged at 51 percent."

<quoted text> Is Piers Morgan Live dead?
Katie Couric reportedly may take over the CNN 9 pm Eastern show from ratings-challenged Piers Morgan, who was the network’s replacement for Larry King.
As we previously reported, in August 2013 Piers Morgan Live attracted a measly 87,000 viewers in its key 25-54 demographic. With his ongoing poor ratings, there’s no way he will be competitive on cable news once Megyn Kelly’s show The Kelly File officially launches on the Fox News Channel in the same time slot.
The TV news insider website FTVLive claims that CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker would like Couric to replace Morgan when Morgan’s contract expires at the end of this year. But Zucker is apparently casting a wider net beyond Couric.
This may be more than just a rumor; it should be noted that FTVLive first reported that NBC would abandon the Hillary Clinton miniseries, and that turned out to be true.
why would Katie Colonoscopy want to end her career on a network with no viewers???

unless CNN gave her too much money to say no to....

Hey fckers, what's happening?
Any update on the current rightwing domestic terrorist's shutdown of the U.S. Government?
These right wing pussees whined because Obama wasn't tough enough. Now he is staring them down and rubbing Obamacare in their faces. I hope he doesn't throw them a bone.
Never negotiate with terrorists!

Glenn Beck's theme for his event was "Restoring Honor". If you think that's obsessive-possessive, then it sounds like you have an issue, not him.

Beck may have been overzealous driving home the realization this country is going in the wrong direction but, again, give me overzealous over narcissistic any day.

O'Reilly simply presents the issues of the day with both sides opining their positions. And he looks out for the folks.

I'd give just about anything if Obama looked out for the folks too.

Republicas said no. They said only if the ACA was refunded or delayed.
Republicans said defund & delay or they will hurt America.

I work for one of the largest oil companies in the world. We have what is called a "cadillac plan" by Obama.
This morning I learned that the top-level managers of the company, the President, CEO, COO and CFO, are discussing a plan to completely eliminate the health insurance benefit given to employees because of ObamaKare.
Speaking as someone who worked their entire life to get into one of those "cadillac plans", I want that Marxist welfare program to disappear. I don't care what it takes to make it disappear. Just make it disappear. I don't care how it happens. Just make it happen.
your "top-level managers" and management of other businesses should have made that clear to their employees before the 2012 election....

Megyn Kelly To Cruz:'What's It Like To Be The Most Hated Man In America?'
"All right, so now answer the question," Kelly said.
"Look, I think there have been more than a few Democrats who are throwing rocks my direction and to quote the Bard,'Methinks she doth protest too much,'" Cruz said.
"They are throwing every insult they can but the reality is most Americans don't care about politicians bickering," he continued. "They're looking for people to solve the problems. What we need to do right now is what the House of Represenatives are doing. The House of Representatives is passing bills to fund vital priorities of government and unfortunately President Obama and the Senate Democrats are refusing to negotiate. They're refusing to pass bills."

Ted Cruz for President!!!

It's show business mutt, why do think Alec Baldwin is doing a show on MSNBC?

Glenda Beck said in the April 2010 Forbes interview that he was more interested in the entertainment value of his FOX show than the political value.

There's no business like show business eh?

<quoted text>Then cheer for the shut down son! This is about as small as you're going to see government get, short of a complete overthrow (and in NO way am I advocating you people do so!)
Obama and Reid are hoarse from cheering for the shutdown.

They'd rather people suffer to blame the other side before coming to the table to put an end to it.

As one WH official told the Washington Post, "We don't care how long the shutdown lasts as long as we're winning."

Did you get that? "As long as we're winning..."??

They have to give the other side something. It's the way this system works. Otherwise, we're no different than a totalitarian system.

But you can't grasp the obvious. So nevermind.
