    Are you right-wingers ready for President Hillary Clinton? I've yet to see a single poll where the American people weren't mostly blaming Republicans, or that it was done for a good reason.

    Better hope that gerrymandering holds out for you guys.

    It's a long time before the next election but the GOP needs to find a solid candidate or they will lose to Hillary. I think she is horrible but woulld be better than Obama.

    Why do people like you even care? Isnt total domination what you want anyway?

    This ought to be your wet dream but somehow you find a way to needle and gloat.

    Perhaps you ought to realize their is but a sliver of difference between the two sides.

    What I want is a working country. If the Tea Party faction in Congress could act like adults instead of spoiled children I would be much less interested in seeing them removed from office or otherwise marginalized.

    Your OP indicates no such desire.

    Funny that you accuse the Tea Party of acting like spoiled children when that is exactly what Obama is acting like. No leadership whatsoever!

    I actually think that is not true, because if that was the case you would not want the ACA, a mounting debt and all the rest of the dysfunction that been going on for the last 13 years.

    As long as you don't shut down our country's government to get your way I don't have a problem with you thinking whatever you want.

    I think the GOP's agenda is to use the ammo that they have accumulated in the manner that the battlefield allows. Don't like the battle? Kick them out. And THAT is what is missing in our politics. We don't want to do OUR jobs.

    And that goes doubly for the Dems.

    Democrats seem to be melting down over this. All they want to do is blame Boehner and the house. Seems to me he and the members are sending one spending bill after the next over to Reid, which he refuses to bring to the floor.

    only people inside the beltway and the political class are blaming the Pubs. Me thinks the people will blame Obama and Reid. They control the government. Obama is the President. If he wanted government to be open, he had a chance. He could have accepted the Pubs last bill funding everything but requiring the political class to be subject to the exchanges just like the peasants.

    And they punted. And government closed.

    Anyone on here miss them? Not me.

    All the talk about the government shutdown must be horribly confusing to you then.

    Only the Fox News watching sheep blame Obama. The other 70% of the country blames the pubs.

    Speaker Pelosi and Prez HRC will be a great team.

    The problem is liberal Americans tend to follow the pack which includes social websites and TV. You feed people enough they start eating it. I had a fun poll with my wife's employees who are all liberal and it was astounding how little they knew about politics. Now, it's 22 people, not 50 million but it's amazing that so many people know so little. I got about 25% to start thinking about doing their own research. I might have 3 or 4 converted to conservative:)

    None knew who Biden was.
    None knew that the Affordable Care Act is Obamacare
    None knew what a 401K was.
    None knew the difference between liberal and conservative
    and the best one was:

    None knew they would have to pay for Obamacare.

    They thought the company would be forced to provide it. I also told them that for the first year they can pay the fine instead of getting it but that future penalties will be as high as the premiums. None were happy about that. Now, I really wonder how many 18-34 year olds know about the ACA. How many of them actually have kept up with it?

    This alone I think dooms the democrats because this small sampling thought it was the republicans fault until I told them Obama was the judge, jury and executioner of the bill. He is the Alpha and Omega and bears 100% responsibility for it. They don't like it, take it up with Obama and the democrats. So, I wonder what will happen if republicans were to invest some time to go from school to school, college to college and explain Obamacare and who forced it on them? How many of them would vote democrat in 2016? Especially since the penalty will be the full cost of the premiums.

    If the republicans can learn to leverage social media and use the same savvy as the democrats, it's game over for the Democrats. Hillary might be silent on Obamacare, but Bill isn't and he would be the 1st Gent. It wouldn't take me 5 minutes to put together a 30 second commercial showing Bill giving the Full Monty on ACA.

    Obama has wasted 7 trillion dollars we can't even pay back and it's the Pubs that are dysfunctional? That's RICH!
