Ah, the forces of POTATO, is there anything more terrifying and so blatently stupid?
 
2013-09-18 08:14:03 AM
Good.  This has nothing to do with Obama.  100 years of federal reserve farkery amd 80 years of government expansion has gotten us  to this point.

Possibly.  That page had a link to an article about a couple arrested for making porn with their dogs, and uploading it.  And by "making porn with their dogs," I don't mean letting the dogs watch.

Good headline

The best thing Boehner could do at this point is hold a press conference, and very publicly resign. He should state that the reason for this resignation is that the forces currently in control of the GOP, are in fact, quite insane, and will stop at nothing to destroy the government. He should name names, shame every Teahadist responsible for this debacle, and make it very clear that the only reason the House and Senate can't get anything done is because of these right-wing extremists.

At least then he would have a shred of dignity left.
 
2013-09-18 09:08:33 AM
now *that* is a headline!

Haven't you ever done something otherwise distasteful to keep a lucrative job?  Coz that's what this is ALL really about:  congresscritters trying to keep their jobs, with their pay and all that free medical and vacation time.
 
2013-09-18 09:14:03 AM
The problem, however, is that the more raucous members of his caucus have rejected Boehner's "continuing resolution with a side of Obamacare defunding," and call this plan a "sell-out."

Boehner's Raucous Caucus is gonna shock us!

All of this brought Boehner to his lowest point last week, when he vented his frustrations at reporters, saying, "Do you have an idea? They'll just shoot it down anyway." So now, as The New Republic's Noam Scheiber posits, Boehner might just let his colleagues take aim at their own collective foot.

Wow.  These are the days when it is *not* good to be Boehner.
 
2013-09-18 09:27:22 AM
Boehner has absolutely no spine.  Maybe he should try actually leading some time.

This would imply there are days when it's good to be John Boehner.  The Republicans in Congress are terrorists, pure and simple.  They're holding the country hostage because they're petulant little twats who hate the President and want to see everything he does go down in flames, even if the rest of the country suffers because of that.  I wish we could put them all on an ice floe and send them far, far away.

Sure seems like it.

I hope he loses re election to his seat as a result. Which is the opposite reason of why he is doing any of this.

Obama's got drones, but is afraid to use them. Weakest president evar.
 
2013-09-18 09:48:23 AM
Maybe this is just a ploy to allow the old-guard GOP to pinch off the Teaturd that's been clinging to everyone's anus for WAAAY too long.

GOP stands in line, and Boehner announces "Everyone responsible for trashing the US credit rating AGAIN for no damn good reason, take one step forward" and everyone but the Teatards takes one step back..
 
2013-09-18 10:02:12 AM
So the Republicans just came out of their big meeting. Their Plan A is to permanently dismantle Obamacare in exchange for funding government at Sequestration levels for the rest of the year. Their Plan B is to delay Obamacare for a year in exchange for raising the debt ceiling.

I am looking forward to the day in which it is understood that Republican electoral victories will be accompanied with automatic downgrades of our credit rating.

If Boehner had any balls he'd kick the Tea Party out of the GOP. They can do that if they wanted. It'd be easier.

Boehner is like the guy bin Laden hired to change his catheter. Dirty job for dirty people with lots of risks and no real retirement plan.

Don't you know that Nancy Pelosi was a both a democrat and a woman.  Clearly weaker, libby-lib.

FlashHarry: weakest. speaker. ever.


To be fair to Boehner he's dealing with an unusually dumb and radical faction in Congress. Only Tea Partiers would think that the best way to reduce our debt is to attack our credit rating, which increases our debt. How do you even begin to reason with someone who thinks like that?
 
2013-09-18 10:12:13 AM
Boehner's got to know there's no way this ends well for the GOP. No wonder he drinks.
 
2013-09-18 10:13:24 AM
If you voted for Republican congressfolk last year, even after the debt ceiling bullshiat, you asked for this.  I want you to remember that.
 
2013-09-18 10:13:58 AM
Obama should just abolish Congress. It really would be for the best
 
2013-09-18 10:14:59 AM
The House will pass this bill. Tea partiers everywhere will rejoice. And that will be it. Harry Reid will just laugh and toss it in the dustbin.

Boehner will then beg the lunatic wing of his party to get serious. They will threaten to hold their breaths until their faces turn blue. Boehner will sigh and toss off a pro forma speech about how President Obama needs to "get serious" about the deficit. He will then spend some time with Eric Cantor, and ask him for permission to pass a grown-up CR with some Democratic votes. If Cantor decides to let him, that's what he'll do. If not, there will be a government shutdown accompanied by dancing in the streets and solemn promises to hold out forever. Link
 
2013-09-18 10:17:44 AM
Well, that's it then. The last, weak enforcement of structured order has been swept aside.

Want to run the government of the USA?

All you need is an incredibly loud and dedicated minority in one half of one branch of the government.

Good luck out there, mother farkers.

You don't. We could try shame, but I think that will fail to work because they're solely listening to their base which wouldn't be able to distinguish between a credit rating, their ass and a hole in the ground.

I actually feel bad for Boehner. He should resign as Speaker and let the crazies take over.

Boehner needs to put his tail between his legs and sulk over to Pelosi's office to work out a deal. His stubborn adherence to the Hastert Rule is doing a great disservice to the country.

I'm starting to feel bad for him and Cantor too. To some degree, they both seem to realize the GOP needs a positive agenda that isn't just anti-Obama implemented via extreme procedures semi-accurately called economic terrorism. They just can't get their conference to agree with them.

Accompanied by desperate flailing attempts to suggest that it is Democrats/Obama's fault for the shutdown because they REFUSED to defund Obamacare.

They're not running it, they're destroying it.  That's always much simpler.

It's much easier to put sugar in the gas tank than to get it out again.
