Former President Bill Clinton weighed in on an increasingly likely government shutdown in an interview with ABC's 'This Week'. Clinton criticized Republican demands, as well as their obsession with Obamacare.

"I've never seen a time-- can you remember a time in your lifetime when a major political party was just sitting around, begging for America to fail?"

The House voted early Sunday to make major cuts and delays to the Affordable Care Act in exchange for continuing to fund the government. The bill marks the 43rd time that House Republicans have voted to defund or repeal Obamacare. The White House and Senate Democrats have already said that this kind of a demand is a non-starter.

It goes further than that - Obama is trying to spook the markets just to further his socalist agenda.

And not for those 16 million kids who go to bed hungry every night in this country. Their parents need that money for cigs and slot machines and the like.

It's a sad day for America when the Republican party is openly trying to make America fail to prove a political point. How unpatriotic can you get?

Do you mean openly trying to make America fail like saying something like I think Wall Street can have an influence. CEOs around the country can have an influence, President Obama said Wednesday in an interview with CNBCs John Harwood.This is going to have a profound impact on our economy, their bottom line, employees and shareholders unless we start seeing a different attitude around that faction of Congress.

I think this time its different, Obama said in the interview.I think they should be concerned.

Nothing like trying to divert attention away from the facts when you are trapped by them, huh, John?

Can you spell "off-topic"?

Lest our friend forget the topic that he (she?) is trying to divert our attention from, here is the topic again:

The Republicans got what they deserve - their approval rating is less than half of Obama's approval rating.

They will cave within 24 hours now and their grandstanding will all be for naught. Oh, except that they handed the 2014 elections to the Democrats.
