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.
Give me a minute wile I clan the vomit from my keyboard.

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.

<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.

The GOPís Ongoing Absurd Predicament
Republicans are stuck with insurgents that want the impossible and leaders that donít know whatís going on in their own party, and together they have created a situation in which all of them appear to have no idea what theyíre doing. No wonder one recent poll found Republicans trailing by 9 points on the generic House ballot.

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!
According to Obama, the great divider, anyone who opposes his policies can ride in the back of the bus.

He did this because the Left Wing pussees(as you so crudely put it) whined.

To think you post this after whining about the use of the word skank.

I was complaining about very profitable companies getting government subsidies.

I see you think the government should keep handing money to companies making tens of billions in profits as you throw kids off of food stamps.

Ain't that the right whiner way.

I love companies that make profits. Good for them. Why do you want to give them subsidies?
It a simple question you & Dumbwater just can't answer.
I thought you people were all about no government interference in the free market yet here you two are arguing for oil subsidies.
Playing the "they don't exist" crap is really stupid when Congress debated them not too long ago,
But, for some reason, you can't identify these mythical subsidies.
Tell us about these subsidies you claim exist.
There are no subsidies to oil companies. Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist.

Prove that wrong. Tell us about those subsidies to oil companies that don't exist.

<quoted text>You need to go to bed . Your meth-induced hallucinations are over-whelming your rationality. Excuse me, who wasn't willing to talk and compromise? Ted Cruz just wanted to f*ck with people over defunding Obamacare and forcing a government shut-down.
'Despite Republicans' insistance that he's not willing to come to the table and negotiate re-opening the federal government, President Barack Obama on Monday noted that his party is already willing to accept a short-term measure to fund the government that includes funding the GOP previously considered a policy victory, provided it doesn't touch Obamacare.
"The bill that is being presented to end the government shutdown reflects Republican priorities," Obama said, addressing federal employees at FEMA in Washington. "It's the Republican budget. The funding levels of this short-term funding bill, called the CR, is far lower than what Democrats think it should be.
"Nevertheless Democrats are prepared to put the majority of votes on it to fund the government," he added. "When you hear government not compromising, we're compromising so much we're willing to open the government at funding levels that reflect Republican wishes, that don't at all reflect our wishes." #PROVE IT;Just Vote . http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/obama-w...
Think we've all lost count of the number of times Obama has repeated "I will not negotiate."

What part of "I...will...not...negotia te" don't you understand?

A president - of all people - has a political and moral duty to negotiate with the other side on anything concerning what's in the best interests of the country and especially something of this magnitude that will affect us all.

This president apparently believes he is above a political and moral duty until he is declared the winner.

It's all about winning a power grabbing game with this president.

And we are the pawns in his little game.

But you will refuse to believe that until you're the pawn taken out of the game for the king's pleasure.
