When there's an inexperienced and overzealous radical liberal sitting in the Oval Office who desires nothing more than to fundamentally transform this nation into his image and he has a majority in both houses, it's understandable why republicans would refuse to allow them to cause more damage.

The Republicans gave Obama and the Democrats their coveted tax increases and got nothing in return as promised - their usual pattern of making empty promises and then blaming Republicans.

Why should Congress get special exemptions from Obamacare and no one else?

Why should corporations be granted a one year delay and not the rest of us?

Why would Obama and Reid dig in their heels rather than make these reasonable changes to Obamacare to end the shutdown?

Democrats have nothing to be proud of. So why constantly defend them?

How awful are Ted Cruz and his Cruzettes?
They have done the impossible. They have made Americans look back at the Bush II era, the most reckless wrecking ball in American history, with relative nostalgia.
With 78 percent of Americans feeling blue about the country being on the wrong track, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, many consider the G.O.P.’s imperialistic unilaterists less loco than the narcissistic anarchists. As grandiose delusions go, global domination makes more sense than self-annihilation.

Obama's ego and tunnel vision coupled with his far left liberal ideology is why we're here. He has no interest in uniting and bringing together. His desire is to rule by dividing and conquering.

This has been evident throughout his entire presidency.

Liberals just want to think they're on the winning side. Because it's all about winning. Even if winning by conniving and playing dirty is nothing to be proud of.

20 signs you’ve drunk the Kool-Aid

There has been, to put it mildly, some mass self-delusion going on in right-wing circles. Here’s how to tell if you are suffering from the ill-effects of the echo chamber:

1. You think Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) has it nailed when he tells the Value Voters Summit that the Dems are “feeling the heat” in the shutdown fight.

2. You think the problem is Ken Cuccinelli isn’t conservative enough.

3. You think if only the shutdown went on longer the GOP would win this fight.

4. You think poll numbers showing the plummeting favorability of Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Cruz’s 2-to-1 negatives are “skewed.”

5. You think that if the GOP doesn’t win the shutdown fight it will be because of the mainstream media.

6. You think Americans want to shut down the government to get rid of Obamacare.

7. You think the problem is that Cruz didn’t talk long enough or that the media didn’t cover his 21-hour speech fairly.

8. You think the right-wingers who lost Senate races in 2010 and 2012 should run for the Senate in 2014 because the GOP “let them down.”

9. You think it is better to have 30 “true conservatives” than 51 Republicans in the U.S. Senate.

10. You think Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) had it wrong when he backed immigration reform and right when he went to bat for the shutdown strategy.

11. You think the biggest threat to the GOP is politicians like Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.). You think it’s about time someone primaried Sens. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) or John Cornyn (R-Tex.) from the right.

12. You think the GOP should have stood pat on the shutdown.

13. You think Hispanics will never vote for Republicans so there is no use in pursuing immigration reform. You think it is fine for the GOP to win elections relying almost entirely on white voters.

14. You think Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is a sell out because he thinks repealing Obamacare can only happen by electing a GOP Senate majority and capturing the White House.

15. You think Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) have betrayed the conservative movement.

16. You think the GOP needs candidates like Ted Cruz to run in for Senate places like Michigan, Virginia and Colorado.

17. You think the GOP would have done better with Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum or Ron Paul as its 2012 presidential nominee. You think Santorum blew it when he stopped talking about contraception.

18. You think Republicans should run hard at the national level on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

19. You think President Ronald Reagan would decry compromise and support primarying the Senate minority leader.

20. You think right-wing talk radio hosts are a good barometer of American public opinion.

If you answered “yes” to more than half of these, it’s time to rethink your political assumptions.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-tur...

pretty sure you'd answer yes to more than half. but hey, stick with it if you want because it seems the GOP way to win is by losing.

The Obama administration blames the glitches in signing up for the exchanges the first week on unexpectedly high traffic.

They had three years to estimate the volume of web traffic and prepare for overflows.

A bigger problem is the lack of people enrolling.

Kentucky, widely hailed as leading the country in Obamacare enrollment, had 8,309 people sign up - just 1.3 percent of the estimated 650,000 Kentuckians without insurance.

Fewer than 500 people had enrolled in Connecticut and just 366 in Rhode Island.

In California, one insurance-industry official estimated initial signup as being in “single digits.”

Maryland supported implementation since Day 1 but managed to sign up only 326 people.

Obamacare needs large numbers of young and healthy people to sign up in order to offset the cost of covering older and sicker people.

If young people don’t enroll, the entire insurance pool could collapse amidst what actuaries refer to as a “death spiral.”

It wasn't hard to figure out Democrat Baucus and Democrat Rockefeller were right when predicting Obamacare was a "train wreck" that was "beyond comprehension".

When a poll came out this week showing that the government shutdown was putting Republican Mike Coffman in danger of losing his Colorado congressional seat, the lawmaker responded with the serenity of martyrs through the ages.

“Whatever the consequences of doing what’s right,” he told a Denver TV station,“I’m willing to take those consequences.”

It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.

Skeptics warned from the start that it was a suicide mission for Republicans to shut down the federal government in a long-shot attempt to defund Obamacare. Now that such dire predictions have come to pass, the lawmakers who engineered the shutdown are getting the conflagration — and the martyrdom — they sought.

Call it the Cruzifiction of the GOP.
