Full of sh*t about what, Dave? The fact that if the ACA fails democrats will blame the GOP, or the fact that if it succeeds the democrats will take all the credit?

What negative or failed policy HAS Obama taken responsibility for?

Here, I'll give you the list:

Taking a closer look at the exchange website problems
"There were screen captures of database errors, not because the data was bad, but because the structure that holds the data was misdesigned.
There were 404 errors, which are totally design errors, meaning that the web sever was trying to get to a page that didn’t exist."
These are not just glitches.
Well,they only had 3 years and 634 million to invest in it,what do you expect?

Gerrymandering cost the Dems the House. We're growing in numbers and soon there won't be any place to draw lines that doesn't include a majority of thinking Democrats. Your wealthy handlers are running out of ways to keep Americans from voting.

We're talking about finding a solution for 15% of the population there's no reason to change everyone's circumstances to fix the problems of the few. I have nothing against a national health service but a free for all system is not financially viable.
Employer-sponsored insurance covers 55.1% of the population. 16% of the population is covered by Medicare and 14% are covered by Medicaid. That is 85.1% of the population whose circumstances WILL NOT change due to the Affordable Care Act.

New National Survey: Shutdown Severely Damaging GOP

A just-completed national survey from Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research confirms that the voting public is fed up with just about everyone in Washington, but Republicans are clearly bearing much more of their anger and it damaging their prospects for 2014.

By a 16-point margin, 43 to 27 percent, voters blame the Republican in Congress, rather than President Obama and the Democrats, for the government shutdown.

The shutdown had left an already damaged GOP brand in tatters and the party’s electoral prospects wounded. The party now has a 2:1 unfavorable to favorable rating, 26 percent favorable vs. 52 percent unfavorable (for a net -26 rating). Among independents their rating is -35. Democrats don’t fare great either, but with a net -5 rating (39 percent favorable vs. 44 percent unfavorable), they do much better. Perhaps most important, on the generic ballot, Democrats now lead by double digits, 46 to 36 percent.

Heritage Action Ignores Reality

When presented with evidence that the GOP has been hurt politically by the failed defunding effort, Needham sidesteps the issue:

Mr. Needham blames the GOP for not focusing enough on ObamaCare, adding that “there is nothing in my mission statement that says anything about the Republican Party. Our mission is to advance the conservative agenda. We are nonpartisan and we really mean it.”

The point seems to be lost on Needham that “the conservative agenda” isn’t being advanced by any of this, either. If it were realistic that any of this could lead to a significant conservative policy victory, that could be worth some political setbacks for the party, but conservatives are going to emerge from this fight with no policy gains and considerable political damage. Conservatives certainly shouldn’t sacrifice their policy goals for the sake of partisan advantage, but pursuing a strategy that undermines both is senseless.

The trouble with all of this is that Needham, like Cruz, is heedless of the consequences of the actions that he has been pushing Republicans to take, and he won’t acknowledge the failure of an effort when the evidence of failure is undeniable. It is reminiscent of oblivious Bush administration officials that kept insisting that there was no insurgency in Iraq when there clearly was. Rather than make an embarrassing admission that they had badly misjudged the situation and were unreasonably optimistic from the beginning, they kept stubbornly saying that they would “stay the course” even though that guaranteed that things would become much worse.

ONly 87% of the government is shut down and the admin decides what part of the other 13% is nonessential.
Everybody knows this.
Are you still cussing at your momma?
LOL. You definitely have your facts mixed up. It's that TBI thing again.

Even your beloved Faux Noise is reporting that ONLY 17% of the government is shut down.

"The bulk of the federal budget goes toward what is known as "mandatory" programs -- entitlements like Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. These payments cannot be interrupted in the case of a partial government shutdown."

"The government really only has about 35 percent of the federal budget to play with, and most of that is defense spending."

You just aren't very bright.

Boehner and the republicans are in a tough situation; how can they purge themselves of the teaparty? Whatever they do; they're screwed.
Rolling Stone magazine had a great article with the heading.."It's open warfare within the GOP – and all of America is caught in the crossfire" with a sub heading "Meet the Eight Tea Party Morons Destroying America". That pretty much sums it up.

Cruz's plan: "To force a government shutdown so painful and protracted that Barack Obama would have no choice but to surrender the crown jewel of his presidency. "As scary as a shutdown fight is," Cruz insists, "if we don't stand and defund Obamacare now, we never will."

And, yet, we have Republicans trying to blame Obama for the shutdown. Cretins.

Here, I'll give you the list:
Why should the republicans receive any credit if it is in fact a success? They had exactly nothing to do with the drafting, voting, or signing of the bill. Therefore, democrats deserve all the credit. The problem is, you cowards fear it's success. Otherwise you would have no problem allowing the world to see how much of a flop it is. You would publicly voice your opinion about it &, let nature take it's course because when the whole clears, you'll be the ones looking like geniuses but, you won't because, you're afraid of it's success!

LOL. They know, the way things stand now, they will be defeated in 2014 as many republicans are now saying they will not vote for an incumbent in 2014. Little twits are running scared..as they should.
