Oct 2, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Lexington Herald-Leader

Lawmakers in both parties ominously suggested the partial shutdown might last for weeks.

OBAMACARE is here... nothing the unpatriotic right-wing tea-baggers can do will ever change that. The next few weeks of their hissy fit will solidify the House to be taken back by a real Speaker... can you say "Hello Speaker Pelosi"? LOL!

The government shutdown will go on at least until the end of the year.

I'm a centrist! I want a third party. I'm a democratic republican! Nope! No end in sight!

Does the average American care? Nope. This is just a contest between yuppies. The rest of us have a vote and no intention of using it. Nobody but garbage out there.

(Secret message!)

That, of course, means that every politician thinks to his or herself "But I'M special! I'm different! I'm UNIQUE!" ...and it WILL go on! I'm betting that this will go on into the new year at least.

They're going to do it again next year too!

We absolutely need a third party. Things are NOT black and white like the DemocRATS and RepubliCANTs ASSume it is. These so called "PROfessional" politicians can't even do what "PROfessional" politicians are supposed to do-negotiate a deal even if it is in smoke filled back room and they sneak/squeeze in fine print and earmarks for their benefit.

The president another so called "PROfessional" politician is the third branch of government, he is in office. His loyalties should lie with the people and not his party. If he doesn't like a bill they put on his desk then veto the darn thing. If you have to veto 20 bills in one day do it. But this acting as chief negotiator for his party when it should be ALL people/citizens does not cut it.

That's all the politics has become here. Pushing the budget to fit in more pork and that is across the aisle work that goes smoothly. So now the friends who will make a killing off the ACA are pushing to see if their dollar can really buy this. The president has been bought for the last 20 years, why not the rest and just bleed it dry?

So now the useless idiots of the rancid left as well as all of the obama pravda propaganda press MSM are pushing the rancid left's mantra that the GOP will take all of the blame for the gov shutdown and the incompetent treasonous clown barry and the demorats will take NO blame? Well I guess if you just poll the no/low knowledge, semi-literate ignorant obama supporters, then yeah. Otherwise BS

They are already very rich and making too much I can't believe they are scared to roll back their compensations even for a short timer like few years. They would rather do it the fraud scammer money laundering Ponzi schemers way which is spend money until it catch up like freight trains.

Boy you dems are really STUPID. Can't you see that once they take over your life as an American will be trash.
Once you fall into king obamas trap you will be nothing unless your black or an illegal alien. Hope you don't mind paying for obamacare because the illegal aliens will still get FREE health care. But, your probably to STUPID to know that as well as all the other idiots that voted for a black muslim to take over America.
Whats the saying, once you go black you can NEVER go back. Now that you have the head ngr in charge WATCHOUT.
Blacks ALWAYS divide and try to conquer. king obamas and his blacks are already crying race. What a bunch of low life pieces of shiit.
You want a divided America, now you got one. ENJOY your WELFARE, SCUMBAGS!

And we are truly embarrassed we only got rid of 50% of our senate democrats and 100% of our democratic representatives. Speaking for ND I would like to formally apologize to the rest of the country. ND has a solid republican state legislature and we currently have over a billion dollar budget SURPLUS, near 0 unemployment and are reducing property taxes. We like prosperity, so we can't afford many liberal democrats. You may have noticed that even our one democrat voted against the Obama gun control fiasco.

Even the unioins are turing against it, moron. Can you say adios Harry Ried? We're going to fire him like we did peelosi.

When asked why the Senate wouldn't try to help "one child who has cancer" by approving a mini-spending bill, he shot back: "Why would we want to do that?"

The tense exchange occurred Wednesday, as Senate Democrats tried to lambaste Republicans ahead of a vote where the House ultimately approved funding the NIH and other agencies -- a bid to ease the pain amid the budget stand-off.

The dems war on children continues.

You, on the other hand, are a quite useful idiot. Your kind of mindless rhetoric is driving more people to our side.
So thanks, and suck eggs.
