Lordy, my head hurts from beating it against a liberal brick wall again today.
But I tried to do my best to put a little crack in that thick cement.
And, of course, I'll keep trying. Later.
Always sorry to see you go. For as much crap as I give you at lest you bring something to the table. It may be wrong most of the time but its something.

Unlike the eman/dimneutr0n/Eed/Florida etc. trolls who bring absolutely nothing and bring it all day long.

I have been observing what I refer to the “Growing Chasm” within the republican ranks. Here is one example of many that I have been collecting.
Republican Governors oppose the “Ideologues” of their party. Giving them stern warning not to pursue a shutdown of the government as it has been their custom to do so. Trying to block Obamacare by disrupting the financing of the Federal budget will backfire on them.
“I have made the case that Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the short term — I think there are other ways to pursue this,” said Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin !
Gov. Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota said “I’ve never felt that shutting down government function is a wise thing to do politically because I think, whoever is involved in it, it’s the Congress, regardless of what party they’re affiliated with, that will be blamed by the public,” And so, to me, I don’t see what it accomplishes.”
Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona agrees as do most all the republican governors.
Gov. Phil Bryant of Mississippi said “Many of the members of this party do not want to fund Obamacare, but what we have to do as governors who work with our legislators is realize the reality of being able to get something passed,”!
Senators Rand Paul {R }of Kentucky and Ted Cruz {R} of Texas two of the Tea Party disagree. Senator Tom Coburn {R} of Oklahoma believes the stop government ideology is doomed and will doom republicans come 2014.
Gov. Terry E. Branstad of Iowa, a Republican defines the art of negotiations and compromise is required and end all this callow bitter fighting of our extremist representatives.
New chairwoman of the National Governors Association, Ms. Fallen said “They need to buckle down, work hard, find consensus on things and certainly find ways of reducing our deficit,” said Ms. Fallin, who rejected the Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma and declined to set up a state health insurance marketplace.
Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, the head of the Republican Governors Association said “We absolutely should use whatever opportunity and tactic we can to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Mr. Jindal, deeming the prospect of a shutdown nothing more than “a false threat” and “scare tactics” from Mr. Obama’s administration.
LOL if that is not an excellent example of how the right wing PROJECTS their erroneous ideologues’ onto their opponent. Scare tactics! False threats! Its Obama’s fault! Callow does not do justice in describing Bobby’s abilities for originality and leadership.
Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware {D} said “People are getting very tired of politicians who appear to only want to shut things down and not build things up, Far be it from me to give them advice, but it can’t be helpful to them.”
Republicans just wanted to let their constants know that they no longer favor the fragrance and or taste of Tea as it is being served by their bitter ideologues’. Will the Tea Party sober up enough to comprehend the warning of the growing chasm that will be swallowing them up?
Republicans are just now realizing that there constituents are deeply in favor of Obamacare and now they seek how to back pedal without anybody noticing. LOL!
They are self destructing. Thanks TeaParty! Hillary Clinton will be our next President.

Of those businesses with more than 50, the vast majority already offer health care.
The only people that are afraid are Republicans. They know the longer it remains the more people will like it & the stats will prove it works. The more Republicans will look like idiots.
Why else would Republicans want to repeal it or defund it.
If its going to fail so miserably and obviously why wouldn't the GOP just let it play out and fail? Its their best chance to regain supremacy over the D's. It'd at least be the equivalent of Clinton's impeachment and that worked out very well for them.

I would argue that no member of Congress has a more consistent libertarian record than Ron Paul. Carol's not libertarian anyway, the idea of not having a Daddy government scares the beejeesus out of her.

Republicans want Islamists released

Two U.S. senators urged Egypt’s military-backed government to release detained members of the Muslim Brotherhood before starting negotiations with the group, warning of worsening relations “if Egypt is not moving to democracy.”

But Egypt’s interim presidency denounced “foreign pressure” in a sign of its growing impatience with international mediations.

Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham spoke after meeting with top military and civilian leaders in Cairo as part of a flurry of international efforts to resolve a standoff between the government and supporters of the ousted president, Mohammed Morsi.

This is their problem from top to bottom. The t-p especially is trying to sell Americans a bill of goods that don't exist, doesn't benefit them, or only benefits a few.
They're still very much viewed as obstructionist to this day, and it doesn't appear they want to change or make any effort to change that perception anytime soon.

No moron, the original stimulus was just a start and it should have been much larger but it was what Obama could get. Our infrastructure needs a lot more work and that would put people to work but the GOP doesn't want to hear about it. They'd just rather keep wasting time and taxpayer money with ideological legislation that will never see the light of day.
"pdumb"
Who was supposed to pay for president nobama's stimulus program? Oh what the hell, just borrow the funds. Who cares who is going to repay the loan? Will it ever be repaid, the near trillion dollars already pissed away? The stimulus program, an apt description of wasted dollars.
