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 ...

An Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday showed why these party loyalists are so concerned: More Republicans told pollsters that the GOP is mishandling the shutdown than is handling it well. And among those who say it's being poorly handled, twice as many Republicans say the party is not doing enough to negotiate with Obama than those who say the party is doing too much.

Itís a shame the NYT failed to do their Homework prior to the passage of Obamacare !!
A recent New York Times analysis found that the healthcare law "will leave out two-thirds of the poor blacks and single mothers and more than half of the low-wage workers who do not have insurance, the very kinds of people that the program was intended to help!" itís a shame that the NYT fail to do their Homework
CBS News says the Obamacare launch has been "nothing short of disastrous!" Just 51,000 people completed Obamacare applications during website's first week!! Both Obamacare and Obamaís presidency have a lot in common Both are Disastrous!!

Its my hope (and new poll numbers are very encouraging) is that this most recent nonsense will kill the Republican Party. The party is non-functional in its factionalism. The next three biggest organized and balloted parties are, in descending order: the Libertarian Party, Green Party, and the Constitution Party. The Libertarian Party speaks for itself, the Constitution Party is for all the Jesus Nazis, old school republicans would probably split between the two. Those two parties can caucus against the Democrats. I hope too that the Green Party will pull members away from the Democratic Party once the Republican Party is no longer the threat that binds the two now. Environmentalists and hippies are as disgusted with the Ds as Libertarians are with the Rs.
Then we might have a representative government that would be necessarily smaller because only shared purposes would make their way into law. For instance: the Constitution Party won't be able to ban abortion because that's not on any of the other parties' agenda meanwhile the Ds wouldn't be able to do something like expand welfare because that's not on any other parties' agenda either. But, the Green, Libertarian and D parties could all caucus against the Constitution Party to reduce military spending and overseas occupation.
Perfect!
"... the Constitution Party is for all the Jesus Nazis...."

Please tell us just where do you get your indoctrinated bullshit from.
Normally, I just assume all this propaganda indoctrinated "information" is just part of some indoctrination session all you you have to attend to keep your Democrat Indoctrination Process Service Helper In Training (DIPSHIT) certification current.
But, this is such an outrageous statement and so diametrically opposed to the real world, I just have to know the actual name of the person indoctrinating you.
Or, just gicve us some link to them. I just have to have a conversation with them. If for no other reason, just to verify they are actually saying things like this.

Rush Limbaugh: The GOPís Charlie Sheen
You have seen the NBC/WSJ poll results showing that the manufactured crises of the shutdown and the debt ceiling are eviscerating Republicans. You may have heard that the Koch Brothers are running like hell away from the implosion on Capitol Hill. But if you get your news and analysis only from Rush Limbaugh, this is what youíll hear. Excerpt:
If Lee and Cruz had not done this, Obamacare would be imgresfully funded, the debt limit would have been increased, and whatever was happening at the exchanges would be a well-kept secret. But because Lee and Cruz insisted on this, the Democrats were exposed. Harry Reid: Why should I care about kids with cancer? Obama opening the National Mall for illegal aliens and keeping it closed to World War II vets. People ask whether the conversation is good for the country or not. Of course it is. Hereís the thing, folks ó and this is something else I want to reiterate.
What the people inside the Beltway do not understand is that outside the Beltway, this is not just the Republicans versus Obama.
Thatís not how the people view it.
This is the country opposed to Washington.Ö Thatís how people outside the Beltway see this.
Letís see Ö where have we heard this kind of thing before( http://politicalhumor.about.com/library/jokes... )? Ah yes. Heavy doesnít accurately describe the level of casualties Cruz and Lee have inflicted.

Just answer this question. If it's possible you can give a thoughtful answer, I mean.
Would you expect Democrats to sit quietly by and cave in to Republicans' demands if they refused to negotiate a law passed strictly on a Republican partisan vote of which the majority were and still are against and with unintended unfavorable consequences?
You do know Democrats have shutdown the government numerous times in the past and negotiations on the part of Republicans ended them?
Republicans would have never excluded Democrats from having any input or tweaking a law of this magnitude by refusing to negotiate in the first place. And Republicans would have never passed a law of this magnitude on a strictly partisan vote without one Democrat on board.
I know that was a lot to digest but just try and answer the first question.

Among those who've actually tested out the system, three-quarters of those polled said they've experienced problems trying to sign up. Only about 1 in 10 succeeded in buying health insurance.
Overall, the poll found, 40 percent of Americans said the launch of the insurance markets hasn't gone well, 20 percent said it's gone somewhat well and 30 percent didn't know what to say. Just 7 percent said the launch had gone "very well" or "somewhat well."
Even among those who support the president's health care overhaul law, just 19 percent think the rollout has gone extremely well or very well. Forty percent say it's gone somewhat well, and 18 percent think not too well or not well at all.
The survey offers an early snapshot on use of the new health insurance exchanges set up by states and the federal government under Obama's Affordable Care Act. Thirty-six states are using the federal government's site, HealthCare.gov , which the Obama administration says has had millions of unique visitors. The administration has declined to release enrollment statistics, saying that will be done monthly.
White House senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness said the administration is working around the clock "to improve the consumer experience," and she stressed that the poll was taken just six days into a six-month campaign to educate people about their options.
She added, "The overwhelming attention from millions of Americans checking out HealthCare.gov during the first few days is a good testament to the interest of Americans in new affordable health options."
The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that about 7 million uninsured people will gain coverage through the online insurance marketplaces next year, but the role of the markets is actually much bigger than that.
They were intended to be a 21st century portal to coverage for people who do not have access to health insurance on the job. And that includes insured people as well as the uninsured.
There are three big groups of potential customers for the markets: uninsured middle-class people who now will be able to get government-subsidized private coverage; people who currently purchase their own individual policies and are looking for better deals; and low-income people who will be steered by the marketplace to an expanded version of Medicaid in states that agree to expand that safety net program.
The Census estimates that about 48 million Americans lacked coverage in 2012, or more than 15 percent of the population.
Starting next year, the law requires virtually all Americans to have insurance or face a tax penalty after a coverage gap of three months.
Opinions are sharply divided on the overall framework of the law: 28 percent of Americans support it, 38 percent are opposed, and 32 percent don't have an opinion either way, the poll found. When asked specifically whether the government should be able to require all Americans to buy insurance or face a fine, only about 3 in 10 Americans agreed, and 68 percent were opposed.
The AP-GfK Poll was conducted Oct. 3-7 using KnowledgePanel, GfK's probability-based online panel. It involved online interviews with 1,227 adults. The survey has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points for all respondents. For results among the 76 respondents who attempted to use health insurance markets, the margin of error is plus or minus 13.5 percentage points.
And instead of fixing these alleged problems your solution to providing health care to uninsured Americans is??????????

From county chairmen to national party luminaries, veteran Republicans across the country are accusing tea party lawmakers of staining the GOP with their refusal to bend in the budget impasse in Washington.
The Republican establishment also is signaling a willingness to strike back at the tea party in next fall's elections.
"It's time for someone to act like a grown-up in this process," former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu argues, faulting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and tea party Republicans in the House as much as President Barack Obama for taking an uncompromising stance.
Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is just as pointed, saying this about the tea party-fueled refusal to support spending measures that include money for Obama's health care law: "It never had a chance."
The anger emanating from Republicans like Sununu and Barbour comes just three years after the GOP embraced the insurgent political group and rode its wave of new energy to return to power in the House.
Now, they're lashing out with polls showing Republicans bearing most of the blame for the federal shutdown, which entered its 11th day Friday. In some places, they're laying the groundwork to take action against the tea party in the 2014 congressional elections.
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/establishme...
There is no budget impasse.
To have a "budget impass", you actually have to have a budget, you moron.
Our government has been so incompetent since Obama took office, the government hasn't been able to produce a budget. We have not had a budget since Obama took office.

Please use verbiage that is reflective of the real world. Using terms such as "budget impass" has nothing to do with what is happening today, or anything in the past 4 years, because we haven't even had a budget since Obama took office.

Doesn't mean they don't think what they are concern about is wrong-Obamacare. In fact Obamacare is still in the negatives. Mishandling is a different issue.

Only a liberal socialist would not understand the democratic process. It's messy and there's a two-party system for a reason. Both sides have to find common ground when there's an impasse, especially when it involves a major law affecting society in such a profound way if it's going to continue to work.

Refusing to negotiate is not part of this process. Nor has it ever been. Only now has it become a political game with posturing and maneuvering by the power elite with us as the pawns to discredit the other side and secure a one-party system.

Apparently, the socialist system you desire as well.

The only way to fix a BAD law is to rewrite.

Nothing is dumber than trying to willy nilly implement a law as it will involve numerous challenges to the legitimacy of it in courts.
If it doesn't work as written-do a re-do.
