Republican Fascist right wing hostage taking, as was NEVER done to the previous 8 presidents combined when the debt ceiling was raised, unceremoniously, with no press reporting on it.

Must be because the president is black....no other reason for it.

Love this comment but of course folks were watching the shutdown and the polls showed the folks blamed the Party of Ransom Demands:

"There are no talks whatsoever about considering any ransom demands from Republicans. Republicans are having this conversation entirely with themselves,"

YOU ARE A RACIST - how can a minority of people put a man in the white house. You think there were no "CRACKERS" that voted for him. The problem is HE IS A FAILURE AND YOU DEMS HAVE TO BLAME IT ON SOMEONE OR SOMETHING - WE HAVE HAD 5 YEARS OF THE BLAMEGAME NOW.

The past 8 presidents worked with Congress- Obama is too busy playing rock star and flying all over giving his campaign speeches - which he still is doing plus he takes a group to stand behind him and look stupid while he gives his message.

Boehner is despicable fake leader who must go home with the isolated and disconnected delusional Mitch McConnell as both drive the GOP to its lowest point in US history. The Obama regime is fighting his opponents and the GOP by all means while the GOP stopped acting like a party with agenda and is looking like a bunch of losers that try to escape the oppression of Obama's dictatorship and try to save their own skin while doing nothing to stop the Obama's dictatorship madness. Evidently, only blind American fools cannot see that they are bunch of slaves of evil dictator Obama who aimed at sabotaging the American constitution and push lawlessness that he studied in Madrassa of the Mozlem Brothers in Indonesia. Obama is the 'pen' communist Jihadist dictator who using pen to go around US Congress and Us Supreme Court as both disappeared as branches of the government under the Obama threats and pressure. The GOP is dysfunctional and paralyzed by Obama's divide and rule tactics which makes GOP congressmen fighting each other while Obama is moving forward with his self destruction Jihadist-Communist agenda against the American people that he treats like slaves while spying every American child, women, man and the elderly 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The GOP under the RNC Preibus, Speaker Boehner and Senator Mitch McConnell are train wreck of losers who try to save their political career while letting Obama running amok to bring anarchy and chaos to America that is falling apart in front of our eyes. Will the American slaves of Obama realized that they already lost their country, their independence and liberty to bunch of thugs in DC?

One concession they might ask for is
slashing $100 billion out of the so-called
"defense:" budget. Listen to the military-
industrial complex sing the blues. But that's
okay I'm tired of seeing half of the income
taxes I pay go for flying boondoggles like
the F-35.

Now thats the kind of "Hope and change" we where all looking for! Purely partisan and biased politics. Hmm where have I seen this before? Ohh ya, with every President in the past 40 years. So much for "Hope and change". BTW, what comes around goes around.

Do you really think the Dems are being taken seriously with all of the LIES THAT THEY HAVE TOLD - why do you think Obama's rating is rock bottom - the people finally have found out how he/Hillary have covered up all of the LIES and they now see the truth - example Benghazi and Obamacare.

this is an idea situation.

The Republicans will do something extreme to implode after trying a desperate ploy to remain relevant. Destroying their only hope to remain in the majority in the house right before the mid term elections.

The morons are taking the bait, running with the thread only to end up dangling from a beam in the ceiling with a noose tightening around their throats.

Speak for yourself, Fascist Nutsack....put blame where it belongs....squarely in the gelatinous laps of Republican't gasbags.

The debt ceiling, Dumbo, was raised unceremoniously by congress for DECADES before this, the BLACK president got in office...the between Reagan and Tush, the debt ceiling was raised SIXTEEN TIMES without so much as a peep from the press. It's to authorize payment of bills already racked up....but you're too dumb to comprehend that beyond the superficial, since that's what Rethuglicans deal in......surface crap that creates a "sound bite" because you're too socially retarded to get nuance or detail in anything.

But as soon as THE BLACK MAN gets in office, all of a sudden the Fascist Reich is tearing their hair out, stomping their little hobbit feet, and demanding blood...LOL!!!!

You freaks are really good at whining, moaning, and causing a scene.....perhaps you could take your act outside theatres where people line up to see movies and entertain the gallery crowds before the matinee? LOL.

You are a RACIST.

Your comment is asinine. Obama has failed in all he has tried to accomplish and even his Dems are running away from him. He has LIED SO MUCH NO ONE BELIEVES ANYTHINGHESAYS ANYMORE. He changed the figures of unemployment to win the election presidential he also - he SAID IT WAS A VIDEO in Benghazi and that also was a lie then he has IRS DANCING AWAY ON STAGE AND KEEPING FUNDS FROM THE GOP AND now NSA. Tell me one good thing he has done - he even has women looking like SLUTS and discussing their open SEX LIFE. LETS SEE WHAT HE SAYS WHEN ITíS HIS OWN DAUGHTERS smoking pot, drinking and discussing abortions. GUESS WHAT - NONE OF THIS HAS TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT HE IS A BLACK MAN AND WHO DO YOU THINK PUT THAT BLACK MAN IN OFFICE - YOUR MINORITY GROUP - HAHAHA - YOU HAD TO HAVE US CRACKERS TO HELP.

The national debt is $100k per Republican. Democrats evade taxes so they don't care about how much we rack up.
