Let us all dance! We all need a distraction...
Its mind blowing to watch the impunity obama continues to demonstrate. What is more troubling to me is his "Fan Base" that is drinking the koolaid and agreeing that he is not responsible or has any culpability for the shutdown. At this point the obamacare fan club needs to go ahead and jump on the train. However, I think they are going to find that the train is going nowhere fast and will run out coal leaving them to push the train. Choo Choo
I guess at the end of the day I would like to see the oppossing view at least acknowledge that the Dems are just as culpable is this matter. It is no secret that the GOP has suffered from this but for the life of me I think most of the Dems should have someone behind them with a boombox playing "It wasn't me, by Shaggy" To state the they no responsibility in this matter is ludicrous. As previously stated the president also should be the broker of compromise. Instead he and his party continue to offer nothing in return except the bill only contain their agenda. Just as guilty and need to be fired with the rest of the lot that has failed to put their country first.
Seventeen House Republicans have now indicated that they would support a “clean” continuing resolution, like the one passed by the U.S. Senate, to reopen the government. If they joined with all 200 House Democrats, it is possible that they could give majority support to such a bill without any additional Republicans — if Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) allowed an up-or-down vote.
On Tuesday, a handful of House Republicans from Democratic-leaning and swing districts endorsed the idea of ending the shutdown without the anti-Affordable Care Act poison pills they had all previously voted to include. By Wednesday afternoon, the number had risen to 17, according to a Huffington Post tally.
The Republicans abandoning their party’s line on this include Reps. Devin Nunes (CA); Mike Simpson (ID); Erik Paulsen (MN); Leonard Lance, Frank LoBiondo and Jon Runyan (NJ); Michael Grimm and Peter King (NY); Lou Barletta, Charlie Dent, Mike Fitzpatrick, Jim Gerlach, and Pat Meehan (PA); and Randy Forbes, Scott Rigell, Rob Wittman, and Frank Wolf (VA).
2014 is going to be interesting , we now know that aftertaste before and after kicking the Democrats tail in the 2010 midterms that Obama's minions suppressed the Tea Party vote in 2012. It can't happen in 2014 becausevobama has been exposed and won't be able to do so again.
Just some food for thought :D
PN, I still no allusion from you that the Democrats are just as culpable, not sure if I will but their hands are just as dirty becuase they were in favor of the shutdown to further damage the republican party. Once again that does not sound like someone who is my corner...
