Perhaps the Party of Frigging No should be renamed the Party of Frigging Block.

Jumbles, dear, wrongful disrespectful derogatory words against a woman does not equate to the "war" the T-bagrepubes are waging on women's health rights.

A third grader would know the difference?

You really mean the party of KNOW - if Obama would have listened to the GOP the government would not have shut down and his Obamacare just might have worked. That is what you have when you have a PRESIDENT THAT WILL NOT NEGOTIATE.

The Dems degrade his own party of women - "sluts for Obama", using women to cover up Obama's mistakes, cost Susan Rice a position, it will also cost Hillary over Benghazi.
They continue to degrade Palin, and any other female politician that steps on Obama's toes.

I doubt the dems need binders of women to find out the smart women.

The repubes have women that write on their hands to remind them what their spin words are.

Big difference.

The party of know will continue to block nominees until Obama, and little Hillary cough up all the information the Senate has asked for regarding Benghazi. This is no longer funny. It is serious. The lying has to stop. We will have open government, or we will shut the damn thing down again.

The Dems have women like Pelosi, Susan Rice and Debbie Wassenberg who can not tell the truth and when they are caught on tape and it is played back to them they only laugh like idiots.

Then you have Susan Fluck who told the world she wanted everyone else to pay for sex. Like I said OBAMA'S SLUTS.

That's the mentality of the Dems. You have never interviewed anyone for a position - and when Mitt asked for the binders (FOLDERS) of the women - that of which he wanted a woman instead of a man) you Dems went crazy because you did not understand how a CEO interviews for new employees. You always have their resume in front of you whether it be in a binder or folder when you do an interview.

Did it ever occur to you that the women Obama has in his circle are loosers????? They only cover for Obama - not too bright.

Gee,maybe if USAToday bothered to review the judicial record of this nominee we might be able to figure out why the nominee was blocked.Is his voting record liberal?;conservative?;moderat e?Not one word in the USAToday story about that.I wonder why?Wonna bet hes a left-wing wacko judge and thats why hes been blocked?We dont know because USAToday didn*t bother to give us the whole story...Perhaps if obama cooperated with the Republicans for a change they would cooperate with him.

Again, Republicans will continue to do what their constituents ask them to do. They will uphold our Constitution, and shut down an overzealous, un-American Government if they must. And the Democrats can do their jungle dance.

Call your Congressman at least once a month until after the 2014 election to make sure he or she know what will happen if they go along with the illegal alien bills, the increased debt level, the increased taxes, or any of Obama's nominees until we know every move they made regarding Benghazi. Give the Commies nothing. So far they are doing an excellent job.

I think you missed the point you can't negotiate a law that was PASSED even if you shut the government down in spite of what you know to be right. US policy has always been we don't negotiate with terrorists regardless of where they pretend to work.

THAT IS A LIE. When are you Dems going to start telling the truth? You make up crap and take it for the gospel truth. Speaking of not being the sharpest tool in the tool shed - look at what has happened to MILLIONS of Americans who have LOST THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE because of the idiot in the WH WHO WOULD NOT NEGOTIATE WITH THE GOP and now he is trying to say the GOP WAS THE CAUSE OF IT BEING BAD when the GOP tried for 3 years to talk to the goon who said the GOP didn't want the poor to have insurance - well now NO ONE WILL HAVE INSURANCE AT THE RATE HE IS GOING.

Mitt said that 47 percent of the people would not vote for him - that was the number of people that Obama handed out freebees and basically bought their vote. HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH WOMEN.

Here is his quote.
1. "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.... My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives." -Mitt Romney, in leaked comments from a fundraiser in May 2012

NO you missed the boat - Obama gave the companies a year to prepare for Obamacare and the GOP was trying to get him to negotiate the same for the American people. As far as your asinine statement calling the GOP TERRORISTS - CLEAN UP YOUR OWN COUNTTRY BEFORE YOU COME INTO MINE TRYING TO TELL US WHAT TO DO.

This sounds like obstruction for obstruction's sake. Typical teabaggers! They could care less about the country and are only interested in political posturing!
