That is the way to win the House.

The reality is in order for the Dems to regain the house they need Rep voters in heavy Republican areas to vote for them.

Slurring Reps as terrorist, extremist or hostage takers is not going to make this happen.

So for you, pedophilia is a single $3b event???

Talk about down playing what I believe is a heinous crime that lasted decades!

I guess in your world, it's really a non event.

Obviously, you believe in digging your home as deep as possible....

son, the cons who are pushing this aren't necessarily up for 2014.

The ones who are up are nervous.

I'm not slurring all cons son. I'm simply calling the small group holding Americans hostage that.

We are all little Idi Amin Dada's.

I just do whatever I want and change laws and laugh at the Constitution. My brothers? They end up in jail:

"Kwame Kilpatrick, the disgraced former mayor of Detroit, was sentenced Thursday to 28 years in prison for corruption following a series of scandals that showed he had unchecked power while in office."

"Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison Wednesday for illegally spending $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items, the judge scolding the son of the famed civil rights leader for using the money as a "piggy bank" and sentencing his wife to a year as well"

Typical of a right wing nut. Comments with no substance or facts. They actually think this will sway others to think their ignorance is bliss. Don’t look now lad but your republican, Tea is headed for the archaic dust bins of another failed political party. Dragging the standard republican party down with it that come 2016 they still will not have fully recovered. Gallup poll shows congress at 11% disapproval with 70% holding GOP responsible for lost of leadership capabilities. All they have exposed as leadership from 2008 is obstruction with no foundations and since 2010 they have become the party that the “Tail wags the Dog”. Can not even govern their own party and they want to govern the Nation? LOL give me a break. LOL

Blaming both parties for the shut down shows fairness and a grasp of what is really happening. There is a pox on both houses.
Dems however remain partisans and belligerent-not so good for the country.

Dictatorship like when the republicans had full power of the government and dictated us into two decades of no exit wars all the while stripping our laws on privacy and breaking the laws of the Geneva Convention. Ran our democracy into financial chaos twice and now they are still trying to do the same again with their hostage ransom pirating tactics. Hoping to rekindle the old days of 1929 and 2008. Siphoning wealth to the 1% as they are seeking to do with this latest shakedown. Shutdown > Credit goes down > Interest rates go up > 1%’s coffers increase with greater profits on their bets on the debt > who pays the additional interest cost> DUH you do with taxes that the 1% demand to pay less of. Tea nuts reminds me of a duck that flies upside down until it finally quacks up..

Political issues? Good to hear a liberal who wants to discuss those, most run from them. They have little to crow about, after all under president nobama;
- Unemployment is higher than when he was elected
- Millions more American's on food stamps
- Millions fewer American's paying federal income tax
- Home sales, new starts and sales slower when nobama was elected
- American's dead because of nobama's Fast and Furious program that supplied guns to the Mexican drug cartels
- American's dead in Benghazi because the president okayed a stand down
- nobama care a program a solid majority of American's do not want or support
- American household incomes lower than when he was elected
- Millions of American's getting or will get their hours cut due to nobamakare
- More debt ran up then all other American presidents combined
Now be a good little liberal and do what liberals do, blame, Bush.
Peace
KMA
So we are back to blaming Obama for stuff since the election.

Eed is sofa king stupid, he thinks the President takes office the day after the election.

And still the forever lying Eed saying Obama issued a stand down order.

More debt than all other Presidents? A lie.

Blaming Obama for the effects other Bush Recession - Stupid.

The Day the Mad Dogs Took Over the Republican Party

It was a historic Thursday: The GOP finally and fully succumbed to its cultural rage.

It was a head-spinning day in Washington, yesterday was, as the story seemed to change from hour to hour in terms of who was proposing or accepting or refusing what and who seemed up and who seemed down. But through it all, one constant did not change and doesn’t seem likely to change: The Republicans are wrecking themselves.

Indeed, historically so. This is one of those turning points in American political history, the kind you’ll tell your grandkids you were around to see: a once-respectable party that finally was eaten alive by the cultural rage it had so long used to its advantage but held in check in order to win elections. It was a long time coming and it’s a grand thing to watch, provided they don’t wreck the country along with themselves.

....The rage kept the base galvanized. It kept the enemy, or enemies—liberal and the media, often one and the same—in the gun sights. But it could also be controlled, the way Reagan controlled it. And even Dubya controlled it. The rich didn’t really share the rage, or most of them. Even the Koch Brothers probably don’t, what with all the froufrou artsy-fartsy outfits up in New York they help sustain.

But all of them have used it. And they have tolerated it, the casual racism, the hatred of gay people, and the rest. They tolerated it because the booboisie voted the right way, and because they, the elites, remained in charge. Well, they’re not in charge now. The snarling dog they kept in a pen for decades has just escaped and bitten their hand off.

The Republicans still might pull it back together. They were also at a historic low after Nixon resigned. They won three of the next four elections. But that was just one man’s megalomania. This is the psychosis of one-quarter of the nation. That quarter is now leading the elites around by the nose. And the Red Sea just might swallow them all. It’s certainly what they deserve.

and so, the sane folks on Topix now have to deal with right wing projection and being ignored by the deniers of right wing failure to the tune of <spam> which they somehow think is an intellectual response.
