The Gov't in Egypt is illegal.
Got that?? Illegal.
A military coup overthrew the elected Gov't, on the flimiest of charges.
Demonstrations are not a reason to depose a freely elected Gov't.
Ask John McCain.
Giv it up, Lady Moonbat.

You are pissed off, the military threw out muslim terrorists, those who murder women and children in the name of allah, those terrorists are much like you, cheap cowards, women haters, turds.

Yeah, I'd like it too if it weren't so stupid. There is no funding for Obamacare in the CR that was given to the House, its already funded.
It's funded on a wish and a prayer. And the hope enough young people will sign up and pay up to make "the pool" bigger for everyone else.

The House also has control of the purse strings and they get to say whatever they want about where money is going.

We're not Obama's fundamentally transformed one-party system yet.

LOL,
Dems, think delaying the debate to another day is a victory.
The majority of people wants the government to cut spending. The Dems increasing spending with new programs is not something that is going to happen in 2014.
Still whining, I see.

Enjoy yourself, I'm gone.

Nobraina/Galt makes sense on this issue.
Repugnant politicians have used th eChristian right for decades, and never given them anything.
Bush used to laugh at them in private. After he got their votes with false promises.
Did Reagan try to stop abortion??
Did Bush I??
Did Bush II?
Of course not. They used the religious right to get elected, then ignored them.
From a political standpoint, Nobraina/Galt is 100% right.
The abortion issue is a loser for Repugnants at the national level.
You're too pessimistic and biased. Has anyone ever told you that before?

Your interpretation of this short-term deal as a Republican "loss" is illustrative of the same poor judgement that landed you in the Connecticunt women's correctional institute.
Republicans were smart enough to know when to call it a day, knowing they could adopt a meek and conciliatory stance while they ready for renewal of the fight in January (with a multitude of additional arrows in their quiver). The dums will step on their tiny dcks, just as they always do.
In the interim, you wont be getting out of jail anytime soon (so it makes no difference for you).....:-)
The Dems had to make concessions to get a few months extension.

The IRS actually IS going to grow by leaps and bounds because of Obamacare - they requested 1900+ new government workers and millions of dollars to implement this monstrosity.

What's not to believe? Besides just about everything you say?

Ruiz has always supported the Affordable Care Act. He's a freshman lawmaker who was running scared of the shutdown...not Obamacare. Gee whiz, he "helped open clinics giving free care and health education to underserved communities throughout the Coachella Valley."
Of course Dems are worried about Obamacare. They have been hearing from their voters. Don't forget the Dems have been put on the record repeatedly supporting it.

Think the "problem" or its root cause (too many leftist freeloaders) are going to go away? Think again. This same fight will begin anew on January 13th, 2014. Think it will be any easier for lame duck baruck after ANOTHER 3 months of odumbocare continuing to be a dismal failure? Think again.
Enjoy your tiny little "win" in the light of crushing defeats for fraudulent gun control, a soon-to-be loss on "immigration reform" (did you think this "win" came without a price tag?), as well as the looming mid-terms and January budget battles.
In the interim, here is a list of the great patriots who voted "no" in the Senate today.......
Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.
Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas
Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas
Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.

You got it, those travelers who stopped to stretch their legs were real threats. You never know what a guy who stops to let give his kids a break will do. Gee, maybe we will go behind a tree and take a leak, we sure would not want him to pollute the ground water or maybe he will light up and have a smoke, we sure would not want him to pollute the air, or maybe he will scratch his fanny, sure would not him to offend you. Get a life, understand, president nobama wants to make the shut down as painful as to many folks as possible.

Let us hope Wendy Davis becomes the next Gov. Of Texas!! She's phenomenal! Cruz is an opportunist. He used this crisis to raise money for himself. Good. Let him run. The republicans hate him. He can't win a general election.

Tea Party's Popularity Reaches New Low, Poll Finds
"Unfavorable views of the tea party have nearly doubled over the past two years, making the conservative movement more unpopular than ever, a Pew Research survey released Wednesday finds. Forty-nine percent of Americans now view the tea party unfavorably, while just 30 percent view it favorably -- an 11-point net drop since just this June.
The loss of esteem crosses party lines. A bare majority of Republicans still view the tea party favorably, while 30 percent of independents and 13 percent of Democrats do."
----------
Democrats will take the House in 2014.
History will not be kind to this president. Seems we just go from one crisis to another to keep our minds of the preceding crisis.

Our children and grandchildren will know more about the cover ups, stonewalling and scare tactics by this president than we will.

He just can't take the heat. So Valerie or one of his other peeps start a new fire.

The defunding tactic was solely on principle.

Demanding Congress abide by the same law as the rest of us and delaying the individual mandate another year like corporations was common sense.

Democrats wanted nothing to do with common sense.

But, again, the Republicans were fighting on principle and can hold their heads high in 2014 because they didn't shy away from it.
