It's outrageously funny.
Obama is the biggest buffoon who ever lived.
Too precious for words.

Of course you can't, that's why we call you a republican.

Laughing, that figures, the clowns on the right cost American Tax payers $24 Billion or the equivalent of 6 newly built Air Craft Carriers and more than 75K well paying jobs to construct those Carriers and now it's GOP humor.

That's the problem that plagues America today, the Republicans laughed as the nation was burning.

We have elections, we elect the people who most represent our beliefs, then we watch to see what the Congress is doing, and call our Congressman to tell him how we want him to vote on things like abortion, gun control, entitlements, etc. If you don't want a Taxed Enough Already candidate don't vote for them.

Wrong, Catatonic. We elect our representatives in the hope they understand the issues better than we do, and pray they will make wise decisions on our behalf.
If a politician did what you wanted, we'd still have slavery, lynchings, and separate poopholes for whites.

No, we elect people who believe what we believe, and follow the Constitution. People who understand that we must now be responsible after spending like drunks for decades, and letting the Democrats buy votes with freebies. We can't afford the non productive, and we are running out of freebies.

I quit. I can't win an argument with an idiot.

One question though. No one is born a hater. Who taught you?

You can start reading the Constitution when you're finished reading Palin's palm. Be productive. You've had three years to finish it.

Yes, we own the shutdown, and we will shut the government down every time it becomes unworkable. Our leaders are governed by public opinion. The shutdown will be long forgotten by 2014, and the Democrats will be drowning in the dissatisfaction with Obamacare. Even democrats are screaming like banshees already. Give them a year to become more frustrated, and you are looking at a Republican roll out!! Thank you Mr President,
