Has anyone heard that the Republicans have threatened to "shut down" the government if obamacare is not delayed or repealed? I did not want to start a dialouge without seeing I am the only one who has heard this.

These cynical Republicans/conservatives and their diabolical scheme to shut down the government in order to get what they want is somehow Obama's creation.
Although Republicans threatened to shut down the government over Obamacare, a law, they now want folks to believe Obama is the one who wants a government shutdown.
Is it any wonder how Obama won two presidential elections over Republicans?

PN, not even sure if this is true; was asking to see if anyone else had heard this prior to beginning a conversation

PoliticsNation commented on Tuesday, Sep 17, 2013 at 14:59 PM

It's true. They've been talking about shutting down the government for weeks. I've been following the story for weeks. If you log on to Jack Kingston site he's talking about it too.

When the Wall Street Journal's conservative editorial page compares House Republicans to "Kamikaze" pilots, one thing's clear:The GOP is starting to tear itself apart.

""The GOP is starting to tear itself apart""".

Ah yes you are right but then so is both houses of congress starting to tear themselves apart with their blind allegiance to party and refusal to work together.

Damn the party lets fix the problems or go home.

That is why I don't think I will vote for my good friend Jack Kingston in the Senate race.

Our government is bogged down.

It needs to be shut down and I don't care who is blamed or credited for it.

We are bankrupt====MORALY AND FINANCIALY=====

HMJC commented on Tuesday, Sep 17, 2013 at 16:12 PM

CAn anyone tell me why it seems the Democrats seem to have no culpability in regards to this? We already know it is not obamas fault but the last time I checked there are a whole lot of Democrats that are just as guilt of "hostage" politics. Shut it down and let them all sink or swim...

PoliticsNation commented on Tuesday, Sep 17, 2013 at 17:59 PM

We're in big trouble if they don't start putting the nation first. If the government shuts down families will suffer.

timeontarget commented on Wednesday, Sep 18, 2013 at 06:03 AM

I think a shut down is in order.

Doesn't matter who initiates the shut down.

Anything less than a shutdown will I fear only bring us yet more of the finger pointing from both side of the isle.

We will suffer. But some of us are suffering now and have been for a while.

HMJC commented on Wednesday, Sep 18, 2013 at 10:15 AM

PN, I assume you were refering to both parties?

HMJC commented on Wednesday, Sep 18, 2013 at 10:52 AM

As much attention that has been focused on the Republican party not supporting obama it seems the Democratic base is also tiring of failed policies and obamas unwillingness to compromise. The article does acknowledge that the majority of the time they still support him but the cracks are starting to form.

Yes, I was speaking of both parties. Some of us only want to point fingers at one party but there both at fault.

HMJC commented on Wednesday, Sep 18, 2013 at 16:34 PM

Thanks PN, that is an important point to reconize but Sebe is correct. The president has the repsponsibility to bring the sides together to accomplish what is best for the country. I did not care for Wild Bill much but he did this well. It has been five years now. The it is Bush's fault, the republicans, fault, etc. boat has sailed. He is no leader and not much of a community orginizer lately...

Great blog HMJC... They posted this today on Fox. It probably want past, sounds better than obamacare.

Clinton was good at working with both parties after the scandal and now this years later...

HMJC commented on Thursday, Sep 19, 2013 at 09:32 AM

That was my point when I alluded to Wild Bill...Like I said, I did not always agree with his decisions but he was good at finding a way to make it work. Thats what leaders do, they find a way to make it work. Obama continues the all or nothing approach which continues to demoralize the country and accomplish nothing. Being the first black president is no legacy. its just being black and all he had to do for that was be there...

timeontarget commented on Thursday, Sep 19, 2013 at 15:13 PM

sebekm, wow I just viewed your link above.

It was I guess revealing to say the least.

I have not been an angel and I don't want to condemn someone for doing something I have done myself.

I thought Clinton did a pretty good job.

I in fact voted for him in his first term election. My reasoning for voting for a Democrat was that he said he was going to fix health care cost and make health care affordable for all Americans.

That is the only time in my life that I voted for a Democratic on the national level.

He didn't fix it and I didn't vote for him on the second round.

Sheran commented on Thursday, Sep 19, 2013 at 16:58 PM

This is a link from CNN explaining what a shut down in 1990's looked like... I say shut it down.

timeontarget commented on Thursday, Sep 19, 2013 at 17:40 PM

Yes and please shut it down.

I wish the primary elections were open to other parties such as the Libertarian but not limited at that point.

Let any and all affiliations who are willing to register and form legitimate political parties have access to the primary election.
