Barack Obama, our next President

During the impeachment of Bill Clinton, Republicans were pretty unpopular. After eight years of George W. Bush, same. But never in the history of Gallup polling has the party been more unpopular than it is right now.

A crucial caveat: that history only goes back to 1992, so it doesn't include, for example, the post-Watergate era. But still, over the past 21 years the Republican Party has never been viewed less favorably by Americans than it is right now.

It's actually worse than that. There is no government shut down. 87 percent of the government is fully functioning. The only things that have been shut down are the selective elements Obama's controllers choose.
Our govenment is far too large. We need to cut 10 percent of our government every year for the next 10 years or so to get back to a balance between revenue and spending.(You can't say balanced budget. This clown act of a government hasn't even had a budget since Obama took office.)
I'm for another government "shut down" next year, and the year after that, and the year after that until we get some sanity back in government. As we are headed now, this government is 100 percent certain to collapse.

House Republicans, facing the ninth day of a government shutdown, appeared increasingly isolated on Wednesday from even their strongest backers, with business groups demanding the immediate reopening of the government and benefactors such as Koch Industries publicly distancing themselves from the shutdown fight.

Here’s How Republicans Could Have Stayed Out of This Mess
CNN reports on a potential thaw in the fiscal standoff:
On Wednesday, GOP leaders appeared to shift their focus from efforts to dismantle Obama’s signature health care reform, the initial driving force behind the shutdown, to securing spending cuts elsewhere.…
Meanwhile, GOP leaders were distancing themselves from demands by tea party conservatives to also make dismantling Obamacare a condition for agreement.
It remains to be seen, of course, whether Republican negotiators secure actual spending cuts or, rather, some kind of a framework in which subsequent negotiations will take place. But the tabling of Obamacare represents half the battle for the Obama administration.
It’s worth stepping back to look at the Spinal Tap sandwich that Republicans—because they could not agree on tactics—have put Obama in: The House leadership, plus Rep. Paul Ryan, now seek nonmaximal budget concessions from the administration. But all along, they’ve eyed the most dangerous hostage—the debt ceiling. The kami-cons, meanwhile, sought a maximal concession—the defunding or delay or Obamacare—but eyed a lower-value target: the continuing resolution to keep the government open.
Obama won’t bargain on the debt ceiling.
And he won’t bargain on Obamacare.
Two separate factions of Republicans tried to make him do both—and for different reasons.
Clowns to the left of him, jokers to the right.
There is a deal to be had now that Obamacare is again on the backburner and a short-term debt ceiling increase is apparently in play. The mismatch of demands and leverage points is coming back into balance. And so we’re left to wonder what House Republicans could have accomplished had they retained a sense of proportion and sought reasonable concessions without attempting to seize the highest-value hostage. A repeal of the medical device tax, plus sequester-level budget caps? The Keystone pipeline? More?
Instead they’ll get peanuts, and an even more badly damaged national brand.

"Lazy Obama voters"? I seem to recall that they amounted to OVER half of ALL voters in 2008 and 2012.

That seems to include a MAJORITY of women, working class people, Blacks, Latins,Jews, Asians, etc. In fact, MOST AMERICANS!

I guess America must be a "lazy" and "slacking" nation. So, who that minority who presumably constitutes the "society" which the lazy majority is "leeching" off?

No Carol it should be named "Right Wing World" where a piece of legislation built on a template drawn by the Heritage Society and signed into law in Massachusetts by a Republican governor, Mitt Romney all of a sudden becomes "socialism when passed by a Democratic Congress and signed into law by a Democratic president. Where one should be able to buy a firearm without a background check is perfectly okay but voting requires someone to jump through hoops if you're likely to vote Democratic.
At the state level, it is constitutional. There was such a push for socialized medicine, Romney, being influenced by so-called "progressives", enacted the experiment at a state level because it is unconstitutional at a federal level.
The experiment was a failure.
And, predictably, just like these so-called "progressives" repeat time after time the proven failures of Marxist philosophy, they take a proven failure and institute it across the nation.

Don't fund obvious failures. ObamaKare is nothing more than just another of the Democrats' Marxist welfare program that will fail, like the CRA that collapsed our economy.

The senator who spearheaded the campaign to defund the Affordable Care Act has seen his popularity sink at home, according to a poll released Wednesday.

A little more than half of Utahns — 51 percent — said they have an unfavorable opinion of Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), the poll from Brigham Young University showed. Only 40 percent said they have a favorable opinion of Lee, down from 50 percent in June.

Utah Republicans have even cooled on Lee. In June, 71 percent of in-state Republicans had a favorable opinion of Lee, while the latest poll showed 57 percent of Beehive State GOPers have a favorable view of the senator.

Moreover, the poll found 57 percent of Lee's constituents want him to compromise on a budget.

Although his role in the defunding movement has been largely overshadowed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Lee laid the groundwork for the quixotic effort that led to the first government shutdown since 1996. As National Review reported, Lee began courting influential right-wing shock jocks like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity in early July to build support for the defunding plan.

WHEELING, W.Va.(AP)- The U.S. Marshals Service says a man with an assault-type rifle fired 15 to 20 shots at the federal courthouse in Wheeling. W.Va., before security officers returned fire, critically wounding the man.
Chief deputy Mike Claxton of the Marshals Service in northern West Virginia says one officer was hurt by shattered glass inside the courthouse during Wednesday's shooting but no other injuries were reported.
Claxton says the gunman was in a parking lot across from the courthouse downtown. He says officials are attempting to determine a motive."

Obama outpolled McCain because constitutionalists and social conservatives didn't like McCain, and they were a light showup at the polls.

In 2012 it was child's play to find the hundreds of locations where the voting machines were programmed to steal 100 percent of the vote. It's virtually impossible to find the locations where the voting machines were programmed to steal one in three or one in four votes.
All the programmers that programmed the voting machines to steal votes weren't so stupid they programmed the machines to steal 100 percent of the vote. The usual rule of thumb in humans is 10 percent or less would be that stupid, usually just a couple of percent.
The obvious conclusion from these obvious facts is, nobody knows what the vote count was because, if you want a recount with our current voting process, THERE'S NOTHING TO COUNT.

Nobody knows who won the last election.
