Leadership?

I am going to make this short and sweet.. The following is a quote from our Commander and Chump this morning:

Obama insisted he should not have to negotiate over the issue. “I shouldn't have to offer anything,” he told host Steve Inskeep.

The link below attests to democratic impunity as well:

Really? I once again am flabbergasted that the country is not just as angry with obama. For all intents and purposes however, the system failed, Democrats, Republicans, and most of all the president. As a "Leader" the onus falls directely on him. He and he alone had the ability to find a way to make it work. The quote above clearly states what he interpretred his responsibility to be. He is more committed to pushing through his hallmark legislation than the American People. Obamacare is not what the country needs most right now but that does not seem to mattter... At the end of the day the Republicans will be demonized and the Democratic exonerated. Once again id befuddles me that the Dems have even openly stated that they were for the shutdown to further unseat the Republican party. That doesn't sound like someone looking out for America. Fire each and everyone of them; the president, congress, and anyone related t this debacle. We can't be any worse off...

It has made me very happy to hear the President over the past five weeks calling for the passage of a BUDGET. I wish he would have been harping about this over the past FIVE YEARS. Instead, he has waited until now to use his call as part of an obfuscatory approach re: the sequester, government shutdown, and debt ceiling. The federal budget is not something that is supposed to be passed or not at the discretion of the party in political power at the time. THE LAW REQUIRES THE PASSAGE OF AN ANNUAL BUDGET.

Further, there's been a call from all sides for a "dialogue" between Democrats and Republicans to help solve the shutdown/sequester/debt ceiling crises. It is not dialogue to say "I will not negotiate." They were laughing all over D.C. the other day when the President had time to "conduct meaningful discussions" with the Iranian government, but then he tells the Republicans to f-off.

Mr. Obama's problem now is how to get cozy enough with the opposition that something gets done. By all accounts, he isn't even cozy with the leadership of his own party. But regardless, he has to find a way because he is the LEADER of this country. Somebody should remind him of something we used to see on cufflinks and tie bars back in the 1960s:

In a related story, it was reported today that somebody got some good news recently. Yesterday, TheTeaParty.net - one of the largest Tea Party groups in the nation - received the news that they finally were granted tax-exempt status. The approval came in a letter from the IRS received well over three YEARS after they applied for 501c(4) tax-exempt status in March of 2010.

See: http://washingtonexaminer.com/three-y...

(It was reported that the IRS "goal" for processing tax-exempt applications was three MONTHS. It's no wonder that the "far right" won't cooperate with Mr. Obama's government when they are treated this way and described by Dems as "terrorists" and "Nazis.")

The Tea Party hopefully will cause the GOP to implode and eventually birth a valid third Party something akin to Libertarians. As Murr informed us, libertarians are conservatives that just want to smoke pot. I would welcome them aboard and leave the Tea Partiers in their own peculiarly defective life
boat to fend for them selves.

This may or may NOT be the definition of "progressive social policy,' but....it works for me.

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 love a good train ride.

As does most of obama supporters, as long as it is free of course...

The Tea Party is alive and well, as indicated by their ability to steer the "moderate" leadership of the GOP to action which serves their constituencies. Those constituencies ARE NOT GOING AWAY. The sentiments which sent the Tea Party candidates to Washington ARE NOT going away. By all accounts, the opinions and attitudes which defeated GOP and Dem candidates and replace them with Tea Party reps are growing stronger as time goes on.

Both the "establishment" GOP and the Dems better deal with it.

HMJC commented on Wednesday, Oct 02, 2013 at 16:38 PM

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

HMJC commented on Thursday, Oct 03, 2013 at 08:39 AM

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...
