Well if this whole Poltics thing doesn't work out for Ted Cruz, I'd say anyone who can get rotation like that on their spins has a bright future as an "X-Games" athlete

ok, ted, we'll defund obamacare if you agree to an immediate raising of the top tax bracket and capital gains taxes to 75 percent in order to pay for a single-payer system.

if you disagree, you are holding the american people hostage.

If that guy had just given me his wallet when I demanded it, I wouldn't have had to shoot him.  He has only himself to blame.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: I love you baby, that's why I hit you.


The headline analogy I almost went with.  "Why do you MAKE ME hit you like this baby? "

When Cruz says:
"Twice Harry Reid has said, 'We won't even have a conversation. I refuse to compromise.  We want to fund it all."

Harry Reid's response to Cruz needs to be "perhaps Mr. Cruz wasn't paying attention because he was not yet a member of this body, but in 2009 we DID have quite a long conversation about this bill, debated it extensively,  and made significant compromises to it.  Then that debate ended and we VOTED on the bill and it was passed into law.   If he wants to change the law, let him propose that in a new legilative session next year.  This is neither the time nor to the palce to refight a battle his side lost fair and square"

I can't wait until the GOP controls the White House* and the Senate, and a small, radical left-wing faction of the Democratic Party pulls this shiat.

I will oppose it, but I will enjoy rubbing Republicans' noses in that giant pile of feces.

*(yes, I know this is very unlikely anytime soon)

The people are starting to wonder, how come Harry Reid is being so unreasonable?  The House has shown a willingness to compromise, but Harry Reid says he won't budge. Delaying Obamacare for a year is a reasonable compromise.  Why does he insist on shutting down the government to get his way?

Besides Teabaggers, do people really believe this ass?   I mean, I'm in liberal heaven here in LA so the answer is no, but I wonder in places like Pittsburgh, where the derp runs a little stronger than it should.  Just looking at my own family, my parents are pissed off at this but my aunt and uncle, NOPE, they're cheering this craziness on.

I imagine he's lost a step or two since those days, but I doubt he's lost the instincts or forgotten what he learned about when to go in for the kill

Well I think I've disovered the problem:

to a conservative or tea bagger "compromise" means "give me everything I want, even if My side already lost this legisaltive fight the first time, AND had our ideas soundly rejected in the last general election"

Well, the first bill defunded Obamacare altogether.  After Harry Reid rejected that, the House could have been intransigent, just like Harry Reid was being intransigent.  Instead, they put together a reasonable compromise that funds the government and gives the American people at least some temporary relief from Obamacare, delaying it for a year.  Harry Reid won't even consider it.  People need to pressure Reid to listen to reason.

How is punting a compromise?  are they going to punt again in a year?

Then people will see that the prices are NOT universally ten time higher than Boehner's Scotch bill.

The derpers will have to switch to some other tactic. Death Panels have been debunked, so my money's on "you can't get <whatever service derpers think most desirable>".

Since Ted Cruz thinks it's okay to say blatantly false things and claim they are the truth, I'm going to do the same.  I'm really a Victoria's Secret  model with incredibly large breasts, I'm double-jointed in both hips, and I love nothing more than giving a man a blow job, then making him a nice, tasty sandwich for afterward.
 
2013-09-30 01:13:36 PM
Their "compromise" is to fund the government until December if Obamacare is delayed for a year. How is that any kind of deal?

If Obamacare is delayed for 1 year, shouldn't the government get full funding for 1 year?

Delay what exactly?  Most of the law is already in effect.

Also, the ACA - like congressional pay - is considered "essential" and will continue even if there is a shutdown.

The GOP is doing this with nothing to gain.  Because they are petulant children.

They will gain nothing. They will stop nothing. They will delay nothing.  They will hurt a lot of people with their nonsense, but they will get nothing from it but bad press.

If the proposed delay is insignificant, and will have little effect on Obamacare, then why is Reid threatening to shut down the government to stop it?

How is this not lose-lose for the GOP?  They can either cut a deal before midnight tonight and fix a problem they created, or they shutdown the government and they own that 100%.

Carn: How is this not lose-lose for the GOP? They can either cut a deal before midnight tonight and fix a problem they created, or they shutdown the government and they own that 100%.


It is.  But the whole fkn mess is because of a minority within the GOP who are from districts that will always, definitely, no doubt, no matter what re-elect them.  They are 110% safe and that is all they care about.

The party as a whole will lose, but the teabaggers pulling the strings have absolutely nothing to lose, and they can talk about how they did everything they could to stop the soshulisms.

This is what "wag the dog" really looks like.
 
2013-09-30 01:32:36 PM
The ultra-right that has taken over the GOP is still butt-hurt that their hand-picked ideological lapdogs in
SCOTUS didn't toss the ACA like they were supposed to last year.
