Barack Obama, our next President

Ah yes,tyranny!!

You'd be funny if you weren't so serious!!

You've been awfully quiet as the Cruz machine has self destructed.

Didn't you say it's time for you and the Cruz-ers to fight??

How's that pounding you've been taking feel??

An ideal is not to be confused with a plan. Ted and the Cruz-ettes thought they'd get by with sheer chutzpah.

Cubans don't know much about the limits of chutzpah.

Good grief the ex-mayor was totally corrupt.
"Kilpatrick wore a surprised, puzzled look at times as US District Judge Nancy Edmunds read the jury’s verdict: guilty of 24 charges, not guilty on three, and no consensus on three more.
Prosecutors said Kilpatrick ran a ‘‘private profit machine’’ out of Detroit’s City Hall. The government presented evidence to show he got a share of the spoils after ensuring that Bobby Ferguson’s excavating company was awarded millions in work from the water department. Business owners said they were forced to hire Ferguson as a subcontractor or risk losing city contracts.
Separately, fund-raiser Emma Bell said she gave Kilpatrick more than $200,000 as his personal cut of political donations. A high-ranking aide, Derrick Miller, told jurors that he often was the middle man, passing bribes from others.

None of what you present is important to Liberals. His skin is black and he is therefore held above the law. Look at the Magic Negro and how he gets treated.

David Brooks was extremely critical of the Ted Cruz wing of the Pepugnant Party today.
He said the Repugnants basically committed suicide by following Cruz,who turned out to have an ideal, but not a plan.
I think Cruz will be crucified within the Repugnant Party after this disaster for them is over.
So either he splits off the radical right into an new party, ala Randy Paul, he of the coonskin hairpiece. A real Daavveeeyy Crockett!!
Either way,it weakens the Party as a whole.
A united Democratic Party vs. a Repugnant Party in danger of splitting into different factions.
Either Cruz heels, or we have a fragmented Repugnant Party, a sure route to electoral disaster.
Most of you regular Teabags are ardent followers of Cruz anarchy.
I'm happy to see you humiliated in abject failure.
Tea Party will purge the GOP of anyone not enamored of Annie Rand's republican destroying antics .

Eliminating the individual mandate would kill the law, would not "improve" the law.

Tort reform has nothing to do with the health problems in the United States and does not belong in a health care law.

Now, as far as allowing for the sale of health insurance across state lines, that falls under regulating commerce "among the several States" and gets complicated. It's pretty certain states would start cutting regulatory mandates on insurance to attract insurance companies to their states which would be a mess. It could perhaps work. I don't know but it certainly isn't something that requires "rewriting" the law. And, that is what the majority of people are saying....let it be and amend it as we go along.

Just imagine all THAT beaurocraTic red tape...h/c provided the givverment..or would it be private market companies...or part givverment...and part private companies...sow hich part would pay whic parts in a goivverment shutdown.

WAIT...maybe it would be a private charitable foundation that would pick up the slack in a givverment shutdown?
Then, who would pay the charitable foundations back...the givverment, part private companies, part givverment and and part private companies...or other charitable foundations?

Gaw. What a mess with a LOT of wrinkles that need ironed out still.

The majority of Republican voters want lower taxes and less government and could care less about the party establishment remaining in office. What good are they if they agree with the DemoKKKrats? If taxes are high regardless of which party is in office, then what's the point?

Thursday's Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll hit the Republican Party like a bomb.

It found, as Gallup had, the Republican Party (and, separately, the Tea Party) at "all-time lows in the history of the poll." It found Republicans taking more blame for the shutdown than they had in 1995. It found more Americans believing the shutdown is a serious problem than in 1995.

Even worse for the GOP is what the pollsters called "the Boomerang Effect": Both President Obama and Obamacare are more popular than they were a month ago. Obamacare in particular gained seven points.(More poll highlights here, full results here.)

It's hard to overstate the magnitude of the GOP's strategic failure here: Obamacare's launch has been awful. More than a week after the federal insurance marketplaces opened, most people can't purchase insurance on the first try. But Republicans have chosen such a wildly unpopular strategy to oppose it that they've helped both Obamacare and its author in the polls.

What difference does it make when the President learned about the death benefits? He acted on it immediately. It's the incompetent Congress that failed to include those benefits in the Pay Our Military Act that holds the bag on that one. Period.
If he had acted on it immediately, there wouldn't have been the need for the Fisher House to intervene after it was headline news for two days.

But we never know when the president knows anything. And what he should do now is fire Hagel immediately.

But he never fires anyone or holds anyone accountable for anything either. Everyone keeps going about their business. And the liberal media just keeps their mouths shut. Nice arrangement.

Why would it kill the law?

The exchanges would still exist and everybody who wants insurance would be covered, including pre-existing conditions.

I'm not saying I agree with this. It does seem petty but the fact is...the Cliff House sits directly on land controlled by the Federal government. It is a “concessionaire” of the National Park Service. Period. I will admit that things have gotten a little out of hand but the Park Rangers are trying to following the directive to close down National Park land as best they can. Last I heard, the Park Service employees are "waiting for further information from their bosses in D.C. before making a decision" on whether they have gone too far in their actions. I'm sure it will work out.

It's hard to overstate the magnitude of the GOP's strategic failure here: Obamacare's launch has been awful. More than a week after the federal insurance marketplaces opened, most people can't purchase insurance on the first try. But Republicans have chosen such a wildly unpopular strategy to oppose it that they've helped both Obamacare and its author in the polls.

This could've been a week when Republicans crystallized the case against Obamacare. Instead it's been a week in which they've crystallized the case against themselves.

And for what? In 2011, when Republicans last tried serious hostage taking, they managed to drive down both their numbers and President Obama's numbers. But even if they could manage that now -- and while the NBC/WSJ and Washington Post/ABC News polls both showed some improvement in Obama's numbers, an AP poll showed deterioration -- this isn't 2011.

In 2011, President Obama was going to be on the ballot against a Republican candidate who wasn't involved in the mess in Washington. The congressional GOP's kamikaze mission made sense as a way to aid an outsider challenger like Mitt Romney. But Obama won't be on any more ballots. Congressional Republicans will be. At this point, it's not a kamikaze mission. It's just suicide.

Senior Republicans -- who never wanted to be in this mess in the first place -- are increasingly desperate to get out. On Thursday, House Republicans floated a six-week delay of the debt ceiling and Senate Republicans floated a proposal that would reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling in return for repeal of the medical-device tax and a handful of other minor concessions.

Democrats didn't jump at either proposal. Their position is no policy negotiations until the government is reopened and the debt-ceiling is raised and they're seeing nothing in the polls to change their mind.

The problem for Republicans right now is they still believe they need to get something, anything, in return for funding the government and paying the bills. They promised their base concessions and they feel they need to deliver. But as of yet, they're still not prepared to give anything up -- at least not anything Democrats see as a concession.

The hope was that the pain of the shutdown and the Democrats' fear of the debt ceiling would give the GOP leverage. But all Democrats are seeing is a disaster for the GOP. And at this point, the GOP is seeing it, too.
