Eek!
It's a good thing these Republican tea baggers have shut-down the government. Any sleepers left in the US with the Al Queda group will enjoy a free run at any airport now. Those Republicans are such patriots!

Maybe you shouldn't fly. If you got to go somewhere I suggest you climb back onto that turnip truck you fell off.

George Washington when he left office stated that no Party should declare war on the US Government. Heed his advice Republicans or it will lead to your demise.

GOP Moderates revolt but can't avert Government shut-down. Moderate Republicans know come election time Republicans will reap what they sew. A huge loss for Congress and any chance at a Presidential bid. The will of the people will have such a back lash against the Republicans they will be felt for years. Sad such a Grand Old Party is going to hell with their back broke.
'Reap what they SEW'?

You watch; now Gluttony Dems, overfeeding at the federal trough, will split the seat of their pants and have to Sew what they Reaped.

Speaking of Drone boy:

Remember in Dec. 2011 Iran was showing off their captured US drone? Now we hear: "Iran's Revolutionary Guard unveils attack drone"

Clinton traded US military secrets to China for campaign funding, cash to build his Presidential Library, and furnishing for his Chappaqua, NY mansion.

What's Obama getting for parking a drone in Tehran?

It's not a war. It's more like an intervention to save an addicted wasteful overspender.

Boehner Has Few Words After Government Shuts Down

Asked what he would say to federal employees who would be affected by the shutdown, he ignored the question.

When Bush passed the costly prescription drug bill that was fine. But Affordable Care Act is awful. A Democrat idea. Republicans are hypocrites.

Why should he say anything? The reporter misdirected the question, he should he asking Harry Reid, not John Boehner.

US Congress shut down the Government. You can't re-fight the 2012 election in 2013 Republican losers. The will of the American people has spoken. Obama has give and give to Republican demands until he had it with them. Republicans are afraid Americans might like Obamacare.

do you think there will come a day when republicans won't blame every mistake they make on democrats?

for example....since Bush couldn't stop 9/11 then Clinton should have. since Bush wouldn't stop giving home loans to "those with bad credit histories" Clinton should have stopped it. since Bush wouldn't stop cutting taxes while outspending the last 2 liberal Presidents, then Congress should have stopped him.

and so forth all day long.

Sounds like you never watched any National Party Conventions.

At the Democrat Conventions the television cameramen have to set up 100 feet away from the delegates to run a panoramic scan of the participants. Even then with wide angle lens they can only film three or four of the fatties at a time.

I saw enough Tea Party conventions to see if they lost fifty pounds, all they would have to do is look behind them to find it.
