That makes no sense. He's still getting paid to DO HIS JOB.

And since Stumblebum Joe has spent nearly his ENTIRE political life in the U.S. Senate, then why isn't he working with Harry [G]Reid, and his other buddies in the Senate to work out a compromise with the House ?

The American people ELECTED republicans to the House in 2008, and then REELECTED them to a majority to pass legislation, NOT to be stonewalled by Senate Democrats.

I'm all FOR the two party system AS LONG AS those two parties are the "Conservative Republicans" and the "Little Bit Less Conservative Republicans".

Oh Please Daniel, Frank, Edmond or whatever the hell your name is.....the fact is this SHUTDOWN is the DIRECT result of Boehner and the House Republicans throwing a tantrum because they AREN'T getting their way about defunding the Affordable Health Act!!!

There is no compromise to negotiate. The House merely needs to pass the continuing resolution that the Senate already passed. But your buddy John Boehner won't allow a vote.

Can I burn down your house?

No.

Can I at least burn down the second floor?

No.

Well, let me burn the master bedroom?

No.

Let me at least burn down the garage.

NO!

What part of the house will you allow me to burn down?

NONE!

You aren't negotiating with me!

"continuing resolution" ?! Why hasn't the DEMOCRATIC Senate passed a budget bill, as required by law, since The Obamaniac Regime seized power ? The Obamaniac had DEMOCRATIC MAJORITIES the first 2 years of his Stalinist Regime, and they STILL didn't pass a budget. Why not ???

Who really cares if Biden backs out? The Democrats have been shamelessly holding out their proverbial carrot on a stick for so long only the most "die hard", yellow dog gays believe that they'll ever actually do anything for us. Time to let them go!
My president was elected by dead people!

So.... All of the following are NOTHING?

Matthew Shepard/James Byrd Hate Crimes Law.
Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.
Full-throated support of marriage equality.
Joining plaintiffs against Defense of Marriage Act.
Aggressively implementing SCOTUS's DOMA decision.
Protecting federal employees against sexual orientation discrimination (a task that GWB's administration refused to do).

I know you disagree with hate crimes laws, but that doesn't change the fact that Obama pushed for it and won. He accomplished something that our community asked for which no other President has accomplished,

One wonders what you would consider actually doing something for our community.

Oh, and ENDA is coming during the Obama presidency.

Big Deal, A hate crimes bill that will be turned against people it was never intended as a tool of prosecution (A la PATRIOT act) You're just making it easier for them.

Who gave us DA, DT? Bill Clinton, Democrat!

"Full throated? What the hell does that mean?

I'm Transexual and the DOMA never meant much one way or the other.

Yeah well, Whatever! How many laws did they enact that either push us around some more or steal more of our money?

Believe me, we paid dearly for that legal protection, as tenuous though it may be. Democrats think that our freedoms and net worth are fair game and something to be traded away. "Power, Dear Winston, power!

I could understand this if HRC was holding its' function in L.A. or some other distant place from D.C. Claiming saving money on the plane and support staff is reasonable. However, this is probably only a couple of miles travel in a car. I don't get it.

What's to get? It's something to complain about. Like playing golf. I mean, it's not like any other President was known for their recreational activities. Like going to Martha's Vineyard. Like no other President has gone on vacation before. Like using teleprompters. Like no other President has used teleprompters before.

Let them scream into the wind. They only embarrass themselves.

Oh, I agree, but I'm still wondering why he cancelled. The government shutdown doesn't really sound like a good reason.
