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."

In fact, the Senate did pass a continuing resolution to fund the government but that bill did not undermine the Affordable Care Act, a sticking point for Cruz and other tea partiers. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) insists that the Senate bill could not pass the lower chamber, despite media reports to the contrary.

'We'll act like we're funding everything(so we can lie to the voters and tell them we're doing SOMETHING!) if you give us everything we want which we know you'll never do!'

sorry GOP, you lost the election. you get nothing. figure out how to win an election, quit your crying, and let the government get back to doing what it does just fine without any help from you.

A drop of oil in a bath tub full of water.
NEW ORLEANS (AP)— For weeks after BP's massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, people across the globe were captivated by a live video feed from underwater cameras that showed the company's blown-out well belching plumes of black crude into the water.
On Monday, more than three years later, clips from the spill cam were projected on a screen in a New Orleans courtroom while lawyers for BP and the federal government quarreled over how much oil gushed out of BP's Macondo well during the 87-day crisis. The images helped some of the scientists calculate how much oil polluted the Gulf.
Determining how much oil spilled is a multibillion-dollar question for U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier, who is presiding over the trial involving the deadly Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and the nation's worst offshore oil spill. The judge ultimately could decide how much more money BP owes for its role in the disaster.
Government experts estimate 4.2 million barrels, or 176 million gallons, spilled into the Gulf. BP has urged Barbier to use an estimate of 2.45 million barrels, or nearly 103 million gallons, in calculating any Clean Water Act penalties. Both sides agree that 810,000 barrels, or 34 million gallons, escaped the well but were captured before the crude could pollute the Gulf.
Under the Clean Water Act, a polluter can be forced to pay a maximum of either $1,100 or $4,300 per barrel of spilled oil. The higher maximum applies if the company is found grossly negligent, as the government argues BP should be. But penalties can be assessed at amounts lower than those caps.
Using the government's figures, a maximum penalty if the company is found grossly negligent could total $18 billion. Using the company's figures, that maximum penalty would be around $10.5 billion.
What part of it is the government liability because they obstructed all the normal actions that would control the well and prevent BP from re-entering the well to execute normal blowout control procedures?
That well should have been controlled in three weeks or less. My estimate was two weeks. Some of my fellow experts have said as little as 10 days, and others say as long as 3 weeks. I have not heard any well control expert give any estimate of longer than 3 weeks.
Why did the government not allow the normal well control procedures to be executed?
Is this related to Obama waiting until the oil to cover some beach, which never happened, so he could do a photo op, and the entire country got tired of Obama waiting for his photo op opportunity and had to rush down to the scene to make it look like he was actually involved?

The companies didn't change. The only change was that Marxist welfare program ObamaKare.
Everything was fine until ObamaKare.
Now, after ObamaKare, those same companies that didn't change before ObamaKare are eliminating the health care benefit.

By the way, those health care benefits will be taxed, thanks to ObamaKare. Every person who receives a health insurance benefit from their company will pay more taxes with no increase in income.

Get rid of this Marxist welfare garbage. I don't care what needs to be done to get rid of it. Just get rid of it.

The GOP’s Ongoing Absurd Predicament

Republicans are stuck with insurgents that want the impossible and leaders that don’t know what’s going on in their own party, and together they have created a situation in which all of them appear to have no idea what they’re doing. No wonder one recent poll found Republicans trailing by 9 points on the generic House ballot.

Dumbass.
And for two weeks Obama repeated that lie. The president of Libya was telling the world it was an Al Qaeda attack on the US, and Obama continues to lie and blame it on some spontaneous demonstration that obviously never happened... well, obvious to anyone who watched the real-tiem video, like the White House.
It was discovered by the president of Libya that it was an Al Qaeda attack that was planned before the video even existed, and Obama continues to lie.

Why do you wonder why the world thinks Obama and the entire country here is fullofshit? Do you think it's because it's obvious to the entire world that Obama and this entire administration are pathological liars and you can't believe anything that comes out of their mouths?

Why does Baghdad Bob have more credibility in the world than Jay Carney?

<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.
The Democrat propagandists won't tolerate low ratings. They will demand the face change, but the reason for the low ratings will not be changed. It's obvious lies they are promoting, and the vast majority of people who watch news instead of Oprah reruns don't particularly like to be obviously lied to. The only audience will be those like the obvious frauds here who continue to pretend to believe the obvious lies coming from Obama and this administration.

Piers Morgan didn't work for them. Putting tits on the television screen won't work for them, either.

if you actually work you're very overpaid, but i'm not seeing it. your Facebook page alone would keep any employer from hiring you, but just think if they saw the BS you post here!

It seems there are funding bills being sent to Harry Reid, and he has to obstruct them from getting to the Senate floor for a vote to keep the government shut down going.

The little whiney communist scum Democrats don't care if the DemokRATS and Obamaqueer screws the majority of Americans, as long as their perverted special interest groups (their voters - welfare queens) vote for them. They actually think it's funny.

The problem is, they are actually screwing their own kids & grandkids, they're just too stupid to realize it.

I agree with you. We need to kill this pig called Obamacare. My hope is it collapses on it's own weight and the DemokRATS pay for their arrogance & ignorance.

Republicans Still Have No Idea What They Want

With the Obamacare fight seemingly over, there's no one who can put forward a strategy and rally the party around it.

A fight that began over Obamacare is now about ... well, what exactly? Last Wednesday, the Washington Examiner quoted Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana saying,“We’re not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”

Five days later, there's no sign they're any closer to figuring it out. Take this quote from Rep. Dennis Ross, a Florida Republican, in the New York Times:

“Republicans have to realize how many significant gains we’ve made over the last three years — and we have, not only in cutting spending but in really turning the tide on other things,” Mr. Ross said.“We can’t lose all that when there’s no connection now between the shutdown and the funding of Obamacare.”

“I think now it’s a lot about pride,” he said.

Like Stutzman's, Ross's take is striking in its desperate machismo. He admits Republicans have lost the ACA fight that inspired them, but sees this as no reason to stop the fight. The problem is that you can't ask for "pride" in return for raising the debt ceiling. When it comes to specific ideas, the GOP agenda ranges from non-existent to vague to mercurial, and since the party leadership is now taking its cues from a small conservative faction, there's no one who can step forward and unite the party under a single, coherent banner.

Speaker John Boehner's appearance on ABC's This Week demonstrates the Republican bind. Three times, host George Stephanopoulos showed Boehner doing 180s under duress from his caucus. It's easy to see why the speaker wouldn't want to commit to any new proposals, since he can't rely on Republicans to back him.
