Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Here we go!

From 2011!

No money today to support OUR Veterans...

but we had money for this:

Pancakes!
"Almost $800,000 of federal taxpayer funds went to subsidize ―pancakes for yuppies‖ in the
nation‘s capital"

How many fixed-income electric bills would this cover?
How many catheters would this provide?
How many sets of eyeglasses would this pay for?

Dead people are more important to Liberals than a living Veteran!

to deceased former federal employees every year for at least the past five years"

The federal government never shut down, moron. It's open. It's been open the entire time you clowns claimed there was a "government shut down".
There was no government shut down. This was just another hoax contrived by the Democrats.
We don't need any more than 87 percent of the government. We should adopt a budget right now that fixes the size of this government for the next fiscal year at this 87 percent of Obama's government.
Then, next year, we cut more. We do this until we get a sane government again.
but they keep polling the SHUTDOWN and the GOP is getting HAMMERED.

the email address of every polling organization in the country shouldn't be that hard to find. have at it. write up one of those cry baby right wing chain emails and that should do the trick.

John Boehner's New Plan: Pretend Ted Cruz Never Happened

Assuming all goes well with the Republicans' meeting at the White House on Thursday, Politico reports that Speaker John Boehner may be amenable to reopening the government during budget talks. Meaning, one, that Obama wins this round and, two, that the budget conversation has essentially been reset to mid-September, before Sen. Ted Cruz's de facto coup.

.... Cruz's ascension to a position of leadership in the party has, in the tradition of past coups, been a failure. Despite Cruz's odd self-funded poll that he released on Wednesday, obliquely arguing that he was right all along, this entire thing has been a debacle for Cruz with everyone but the conservative base he hopes come to the polls in 2016.(And, apparently, for Cruz's partner-in-dissent, Utah Sen. Mike Lee.) According to Gallup, Cruz's popularity has undergone a 16-point swing to the negative since June.

So. We dust off our hands, turn back the clock (once it starts working again), and try this whole thing again. From the start of the shutdown there was speculation that Boehner just needed to let his right-wing members vent. Instead, they've been sitting around for ten days rapidly losing blood. When it comes to negotiations with the president, Boehner's position isn't too much worse than it was a month ago. But his ability to tell the far-right to shut up has improved enormously.

The Stock Market seems pleased that Obama and the Reps negotiated an extension of the debt ceiling until November. Now will Reid continue to be a obstacle to it?

NOTE: this is a separation issue from the shut down and this will not re-open the government

LOL

taking lessons from the guy who picked Palin as his VP? the guy who hired a vote fraud specialist that still couldn't get him elected?

well, seeing as how Ted is no longer a failure virgin, a few more fails shouldn't bother him too much. he might even start to like it in a kinky sort of GOP way.

Thank God for teabaggers.
These idiots could have sat back and took potshots at Obamacare and magnified the normal start up bumps that everyone knew would come. But no, they chose to create a distraction by shutting down the government and trashing the economy.
I was worried that 2014 depended on the success of Obamacare, now Republicans are on their heels defending their moron teabaggers.

The problem wasn't that anything broke down, Bush nearly broke everything down but, look who saved the day. That's right Obama! Elected by America's republic to institute his philosophical ideology &, fix the mess Bush made. He most likely would've had that completely done by now, if it weren't for the republican oath to do anything to disrupt any progress made by the president. You' re represented by a party of spoiled brats! Because they couldn't produce a viable candidate to run for the presidency, their logic is fuck it up for the entire country. The president shouldn't have to compromise on the ACA, it's the law voted on by the people &, passed into law. The mere fact that the president is willing to negotiate on some provisions from the ACA, shows that it was the republicans all along, holding the country hostage in attempts to get what they want. That's not negotiating, that a ransom call. You can talk all that nonsense all you want. Obama did nothing Bush didn't do &, you all were quiet as a mouse while his mass corruption was taking place, right in y'all faces. A party of hypocrites, it figures!

When will Harry come out for air and realize there are no winners in this shutdown. Approval of Congressional Dems hovering at 30%-isn't winning.
