Since when has he taken charge of anything or led anyone?
Pelosi and Reid wrote Obamacare. He never did get to the bottom of anything as promised. He never held anyone accountable for anything as promised. He has lost face on the world stage with Iran, Egypt, Syria, Russia and European countries. And he acts like the Republican Party is his nemesis instead of fellow elected officials who represent the other half who didn't vote for him.
Others take charge while he still acts like a king. The emperor wears no clothes.

It's obvious you're lying again. Your side has refused to meet with Obama,instead preferring to attempt to destroy him with cheap tricks that failed.

Q. Where's the results of Trump's Birth Certificate investigation??

Q. Where's the results of Sheriff Joe's Birth Certificate Investigation??

Funny how they swore they'd 'get the truth out', then said nothing when they found th eBC to be the real deal.

But the racism here continues. You're one of the instigators, with your constant slanderous attacks.

And you've lost every round, this one being the one that destroys the Repugnant PArty.

"...More than 40 Republicans, many vulnerable to defeat in 2014, have co-sponsored a bill introduced by Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., that would prevent members from receiving their salary while the government stops operating...."

The Army didn't like their control of the Egyptian economy threatened, and held a Military Coup.
You hate Democracy because you don't like the results. But you say some realy dumb things that you can't support with facts.
Do you have nightmares about Hillary being the next President??
Good.
That shows a contempt for reality when it interferes with your spin.

Escaping from Fantasy Politics

Part of making the GOP more competitive as a national party is to develop a policy agenda that isn’t simply a revised version of the losing campaigns of 2008 or 2012, and the ability to do that is being directly and indirectly threatened the longer that the shutdown continues. Some of the more interesting policy innovators on the right are suffering some serious damage because of their leading role in the party’s shutdown fight. Mike Lee gave a well-regarded speech on tax reform earlier this year that could mark the start of some productive new policy thinking. Unfortunately, that seems likely to be overwhelmed by the sharply negative reaction in Utah to Lee’s role in the shutdown. One of the most promising House Republicans, Justin Amash, has drawn a primary challenger specifically because of his prominent role in all of this. This just underscores that the entire episode has been bad for both the quality of Republican policy thinking and for the electoral chances of Republicans in future elections. That in turn makes it much less likely that Republicans will be in a position to pass their own agenda, and it makes it less likely that they will have policy ideas worth implementing once they are in a position to do so.

No matter what else happens, the shutdown has already done significant political harm to the party’s more interesting policy innovators and it has likely made it harder for their most valuable ideas to receive a wider hearing. The public has become less sympathetic to small government views thanks to the shutdown, and that will make it that much more difficult for small-government conservative and libertarian Republicans to promote the rest of their agenda. Republicans and conservatives of all kinds are likely annoyed with their elected representatives right now, but those that see the potential of so-called libertarian populism and related ideas ought to be banging their heads against the wall in frustration.

You're free to go live in another country, if they'll have you.
Americans elected Obama twice, and supported him in the Gov't shutdown, which is destroying the Repugnant Party.
I'd say you got what you deserve for your nasty racism.
Lois mentioned moving to an island nation some time ago; can't remember which one it was but it is predominantly black. It may be a learning and growing experience for her to do so. These teaparty people probably don't even realize how ridiculous they are. Perhaps moving away and away from Fox and the rest of the merry band of morans will prove to be awakening.

I think a lot of people just wanted to give Obamacare a chance but realize it's not going to work. Because the leaders fail to realize it and because of the unrest caused by their stubbornness to realize it, I truly believe it will backfire.
If not now, then in another year.
The unbridled hatred your delusional party has put forth is now your undoing. You thought Obama was ruining the country. Wrong. Your hatred for him has backfired, and has ruined your bent up, twisted party and is now bringing it to the brink of ruination. Well done!!

Huh?

When the president refused to buckle to this extortion, they threw their tantrum,” Bill says.“Like the die-hards of the racist South a century and a half ago, who would destroy the union before giving up their slaves, so would these people burn down the place, sink the ship.” He goes on to tell us where the “reckless ambition” of the Republicans could lead us.

Find me a quote where a Democratic Senate Leader said they wanted to limit Bush to one term.

Your arguments are weak and lame. Fitting, coming from you.

You guys are still having problems figuring this out.

Quotes and polls- as a courtesy- should have links.

To finish the quote-
"Again, "Talking Points" understands Obamacare is not good for the country, but that must be vividly proven in order for the Democrats to take a massive hit. And the only way that will happen is if the law collapses, which it well might. When Americans begin to see their insurance premiums, co-pays and deductibles go up and their doctors not readily available, there's going to be a lot of anger and the tide will turn."

Obamacare's numbers are up, from 31% to 38%.

Yours are at 21% and sinking.

I figure Obamacare will remain far more popular than Teabag Nation.
