We borrow money from China to pay for this?

$1.8 million

"In Las Vegas, Nevada,$1.8 million went to build a ‘museum of neon signs.’ The purpose of the museum is to preserve old neon signs that are no longer in use"

Bah! Every reasonable idea, like tort reform, was dismissed without discussion. Obama has never compromised on anything except his willingness to change the meaning of his campaign promises. Good leaders like Reagan and Clinton crossed over to listen and compromise. President Smug is unwilling to do either, instead he invites others over for a pompous lecture.
Double bah, they never took it seriously and decided to sit this one out so they could bitch about it later.

While the president is neither smug nor unwilling to compromise the Republicans had already convinced themselves of this preconceived notion and have continued to do so lo these past 5 years. If they ever do decide to open up for some real dialog sans all the rhetoric I think they'll find him a willing participant.

Again, Galt...a 2011 Gallup poll said 92% of Americans profess a belief in God.

Can you at least TRY to curb you intolerance? Yes, there are a few fringe extremists on both sides of the spectrum, but we're both fighting for the same political ideology...remember?

Always dragging up the few fringe extremists and labeling 92% of Americans as "DemoKKKrat plantation Negroes" isn't helping.

You're just encouraging Homer. Now do you see what you've done?

<quoted text>I prefer balance, with the Republican Party imploding we may start moving farther to the left. Although it's possible the Republican Party will dump the Tea Baggers and become a moderate party which Homer will gleefully join. We may yet have a 3 party system with Tea Baggers - right, Republicans with Independents and moderate Democrats joining/forming - center, and a left leaning, Democrat Party.
"Elect me the leader of our new third party" - Homer 2016
Obama's down to 39%. Democrats aren't far behind.

Republicans are still recovering from the lies too many wanted to believe about the shutdown, but Obamacare will end up strengthening the Republican Party.

Wait and see.

Democrats could run Anthony Weiner and beat anyone in the Republican party. The main reason is that you morons don't have anyone you can agree on. Your primary will be a remake of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo House".
Hillary will win in a landslide.

Galt is fighting for smaller government and fiscal responsibility.

Evangelical Christians want the government to dictate morality.

Not the same goal at all.

The most powerful man in the world allowing himself to be "serviced" by a young infatuated subordinate wouldn't be that hard to find.

Okay, now we agree on something again.

Registered Republicans don't make up 92% of the population.
That means a lot of them are on your side of the fence.
I know that was a hard pill to swallow, so are you okay?
A belief in a "God" does not equate to religious bigotry....an intolerance toward those who hold different opinions. Those are religious "nuts".

Anthony Weiner can't even get it up to satisfy his own base.

How in the world do you think he could possibly beat anyone - but himself - at this point?
