The 8 Craziest Things Ted Cruz has said:
1. On Obama’s plot to kidnap him:“So this afternoon President Obama has invited the Senate Republicans to the White House. So after leaving here, I’m going to be going to the White House. I will make a request. if I’m never seen again, please send a search and rescue team. I very much hope by tomorrow morning I don’t wake up amidst the Syrian rebels.”
2. On the press:“The media wants America to give up and allow this country to keep sliding off the edge of the cliff.”
3. On the Constitution:“This is an administration that seems bound and determine to violate every single one of our bill of rights. I don’t know that they have yet violated the Third Amendment, but I expect them to start quartering soldiers in peoples’ homes soon.”
4. On the hecklers who interrupted his speech:“Is anybody left at OFA headquarters? I’m actually glad that the president’s whole political staff is here instead of actually doing mischief in the country
5. On hecklers, again:“It would seem that President Obama’s paid political operatives are out in force. The men and women in this room scare the living daylights out of them.”
6. On hecklers, a third time:“How scared is the President? What a statement of fear, what a statement of fear. Oh, they don’t want the truth to be heard. They definitely don’t want the truth to be heard.”
7. On the Cold War:“Our foreign policy is detente, which I’m pretty sure is French for surrender.”
8. On Vice President Biden:“You don’t need a punchline. You just say his name, people laugh.”
Tony Perkins, who leads the organization behind the Value Voters Summit, called Cruz “a de facto leader of the Republican Party” who was “filling a vacuum” at the top of the party. According to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Thursday night, 44 percent of Americans don’t know who Ted Cruz. Among Americans that do, twice as many have unfavorable impressions of the Senator as have favorable ones.

DBWriter, you asked if I had any other questions then you ran away. Here it is again in case you missed it.
Just for a minute think about the logic of what you're saying:
A. You blame Obama for jobs not being available.
B. You blame unemployed people for not finding jobs you claim aren't there.
Which is it?
If the jobs aren't there how can people find them?
If the jobs are there then you have no argument that he's a job killer.
Obama is just a figurehead. He doesn't do anything. For Obama to do anything wrong, he actually has to do something. However, because those who are actually making the decisions use Obama's image and name, let's just blame it on Obama, ok?

Let's talk about Obama's "recovery". There are 5 times as many part time jobs being created as full time jobs.
Now, let's talk about available jobs. There are more than 30 million illegal aliens here doing the work Obama is paying other people to not do. If you can't find a job, take one of those jobs. go in there and tell them you're an American and you have a right to that job, and the Constitution and federal law will back you up. Now, all you have to do is get a president that will enforce the law.

Perhaps you need to look beyond your own neighborhood for a job. How about going to some state like, oh, say, Texas and get a job. It's booming there.

The job situation is doing nothing but getting worse under Obama. Each day the opportunities to do what I suggest become fewer. They're still there, though. Just go out there and find them. Buy a copy of the Houston chronicle and look through the classifieds if you can't think of anything else to do. Get on the internet and look for a job.

I'll tell you how to find a job.
Get up every moning early and start looking. Stop at every place of business or where you see work being done and ask. Show them you are the type of person who wants to work for a living. Take the first job offered. Show up for work every day on time, and do what you're paid to do when you're at work.
You can't do this for one hour on one day. You have to do this until you get a job. That's how you get a job if you can't get one any other way.
Wake up before sunrise. Get an early start. Hunt until you find something. You may be faced with the situation where nobody's going to bring something to you, you will have to go find it yourself.

Senate Republicans gathered to meet with President Barack Obama at the White House amid green shoots of optimism that an end to the federal government's shutdown could be within reach.

The Senate GOP met with the president after a late-Thursday meeting between top House Republicans and Obama jump-started hopes of an end to the stalemate that threatened a default on the national debt, and a federal government shutdown that extended into its 11th day on Friday.

The Senate Republicans' meeting included moderates who have been working to craft an agreement to reopen the government, as well as conservative firebrands like Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who delivered an unflinching defense of his role in the government shutdown before a gathering of conservative activists hours before the meeting.

The meeting between Obama and his chief Republican adversaries in the House on Thursday prompted a sharp change in tone from the acrimony that had come to define fiscal negotiations in Washington over the past few months.

According to the latest NBC/WSJ poll, the shutdown has been a political disaster. One in three say the shutdown has directly impacted their lives, and 65 percent say the shutdown is doing quite a bit of harm to the economy. NBC's Chuck Todd reports.

GOP negotiators worked with Obama administration aides through the night to cobble together a short-term agreement to both extend the nation's borrowing authority and reinstate funding for vital government operations. If both of those conditions are met, Obama has said he would then -- and only then -- be willing to engage in broader fiscal negotiations with Republicans.

Republicans were said to be offering a six-week extension of government borrowing, and perhaps a reinstatement of government funding -- the second of which Obama demanded on top of an initial Republican offer on Thursday to only raise the debt limit. Democrats are wary, though, of such a short extension in the debt limit, and Republicans in the Senate may offer their own alternative plan.

The stakes from the talks are high on several fronts. Financial markets have nervously watched Washington for signs of an agreement that would avoid default on the national debt by Oct. 17, the deadline by which Congress must extend the government's borrowing authority.

The fiscal standoff also had broad political implications, as well. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Thursday found that unfavorable opinion of the Republican Party had reached all-time highs, and that 70 percent of Americans disapproved of the way in which Republicans in Congress were handling the budget standoff.

The pressure from Wall Street, combined with sharply changing public opinion against the GOP, has helped prompt Republican leaders' recent work toward reaching an ad

Republican leaders appeared cautiously optimistic late Thursday, saying that a 90 minute meeting with the president was fruitful, even though both sides did not come to an agreement about a temporary hike in the debt ceiling.

"I left thinking I believe it is possible for us to get it all done," House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, said, adding that the overnight negotiations would be "critical to the success" of a deal.

“The president didn't say yes, he didn't say no,” House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan told NBC News of the House proposal to raise the debt ceiling for six weeks.“It was a useful conversations. We're now going to negotiate."

Rep. Lynn Jenkins of Kansas, the vice chairman of the House GOP Conference, told CNBC that House leaders hope to have the government reopened by Monday.

The impact of the first government shutdown in 17 years was felt across America as offices were shuttered and workers were sent home after lawmakers failed to come to a deal.

This is a good example of the Alinsky rule in action.
The Dems know that Obamacare cannot be implemented as written --with the exception of Reid and Pelosi probably. They know the exchange website is a train wreck. They know that premiums have increased.
So do they vote to correct the problems or at least delay it for a year.
Nope? They decide to make the shut down the issue idiotically thinking this will help them in a year from now election.
It was a stupid use of the rule as most people will still be unhappy with Obamacare a year from now.
Just like Saul Alinsky instructs, you have to create the problem before you can propose the solution.

For Republicans, the last 10 days have felt like falling down a darkened elevator shaft: You want to hit bottom, but wonder about the odds of survival.

In what has become an almost daily occurrence, Thursday night brought another poll showing the damage the party has suffered as a result of the government shutdown. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that the party’s popularity had dropped and Americans were far more likely to blame them for the goings-on in Washington than their Democratic opponents.

A recap:

--Only 24% of Americans had a favorable view of Republicans, the lowest figure in the poll’s multi-year history and four percentage points lower than last month. Another low: only 21% had a favorable view of the tea party.

--President Obama’s standing was relatively stable, the pollsters said, moving from 45% favorable last month to 47% now, within the poll’s margin of error of 3.5 points. Democrats overall were at 39% positive, with congressional Democrats at 36%.

--70% of Americans said Republicans were putting politics ahead of what was best for the country. A lesser 51% said that about Obama.
