Apparently, his post

Are you an 18%-er? "
No reason to doubt his country of origin.
No reason to doubt Obama's country of origin.

Yet Repugnants have made a 5 year career of it.

Weirdly, you're taking the exactly opposite position that Ted Cruz and the republinutz argue that the economy has improved considerably, American government revenue is higher now then its ever been(thanks to republicans conceding to Obama's modest tax hike request on the wealthy ($250,000 and up class) and the across-the-board sequestration cuts in government spending from military to veterans to students, to women health to parks maintenance , etc.) So, Cruz argues that a delay in raising the debt ceiling isn't that crucial because the federal government has enough to cover the interest now. So, which is it? Is the national debt getting 'worse'(which would call for more emergency borrowing (raising the debt ceiling) or is the national debt becoming more manageable under Obama's economic policies of balanced cuts to waste and inefficiency and more spending on domestic national infrastructure and healthcare?

You keep repeating that. Does Whatever give the orders, or do you??

You keep trying to avoid the fact that Repugnants have lost the shutdown battle to Obama.

They're desperately looking for a way to surrender that saves face.

I guess I'd do the same if I had supported the losers.

Carry on, whatever puppet.
Yeah

Wouldn't be necessary if people would stop trying to obfuscate.
Example-
The American people don't like Obamacare
The Left-
here is a poll about Republicans
here is a poll about the shut down
etc.
None of these things change the fact that Americans don't like Obamacare.
lol! Nothing about what you said changes the fact it's simply your opinion.

BTW, still can't support your 44% claim son?

interesting how you apply your rules so selectively!!!

Obamacare was a Godsend to get passed just in the nick of time as the country is transitioning into a Task Rabbit economy of low-pay, few benefits, temporary services laboring force.
Not what the poll states.
Yeah

However, no negotiations is not an option. The public wants the sides together and figure it out.

She takes a beating here every day.

That's why she changes the topic in discussion.

I say the military overthrew Morsi.

She says the pepole were unhappy.

I didn't know street demonstrations warranted a Military Coup. That's what McCain and Lindsey Graham called it.

She doesn't like Democracy. She only supports it when her side wins.

Military Coups are ok in her book!!

The popularity of the Reps doesn't change the fact that Obama's is 44%.

The GOP hasn't provided an alternative? Funny, but I bet when the ACA goes into the shi**er, your side will immediately say it was a GOP idea or Romneycare on 'roids. If by some miracle it becomes a success, Obama and his progressive lackeys will grab ALL of the credit.

Shouldn't they son? Because if it fails, isn't your side going to grab all the credit?

Obama doesn't go anywhere son.

After all, it's not like the Cons didn't know they had time to get this fixed prior to shutting down the government. It's just that they wanted to play chicken and found out they're losing if they keep playing.

So now, desperation is kicking in for them.
