FTA: "If you're working here and in the middle of the day, you just stopped and said, 'You know what? I want to get something, but I don't know exactly what I'm going get, but -- I'm just going to stop working until I get something. I'm going to shut down the whole plant until I get something.'""You'd get fired!" he said to applause.


Like fish in a barrel. The video in the link is great.

fusillade762: Maddow summed it up pretty well.

The quote is just ... perfect. "We're not going to be disrespected" helps capture the extent to which Republican lawmakers are acting like a street gang, hurting the country deliberately out of some twisted sense of self-serving pride. "We have to get something out of this" reinforces the way in which GOP officials are holding the country hostage, expecting a ransom to be paid.

And "I don't know what that even is" makes clear that Republicans are being driven by a mindless radicalism. There's no meaningful policy goal in mind; there's no substantive motivation; there isn't even a strategic end goal. There's just a primal instinct and a right-wing id causing a national crisis.


LOL. #Trumpka

Okay

either Obama's staff read Fark

OR

some of you really ought to run for office (at least locally to start)

i suspect - and hope  - both

"We have to get something out of this. And I don't know what that even is."

That was a dumb thing to say.  Like Harry Reid saying "Why would we want to do that?" when asked if he would be willing to "help one child who has cancer."  The two sides shouldn't be asking what's in it for them, they should be trying to work together to try to reach a compromise that both sides can accept.

I just read a quote of an elected official who said (paraphrasing) "it just hit me these Capitol police we've seen today aren't getting paid."

These guys are unbelievably disconnected from the reality of the world.

They really can't. One side is sure that the country really needs the ACA the other thinks it will bring the economy crashing down. Both sides have really "gone all in" on this.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: One side is sure that the country really needs the ACA



This is the side that has an actual law backing them up, though. And it's a law that's been in place for about 3 years now, and that was ruled legal by the Supreme Court.

And the side that wants it gone is offering absolutely nothing in return.

I'm thinking Skinny Head is a humorous novelty account. Trolling is subtle. Or, used to be. I remember when Obama released his birth certificate, he said "I hate to gloat..." And, it was shiat storm.

Obama went on to release his birth video which was the Lion King (AFRICA) at the White House Correspondent's dinner. Trump was livid because of is hair or something.

Anyone remember Skookum?

Let's keep it fun, folks.

We're getting close to the point were the GOP starts going, "Oh, the ACA? That's working out pretty well for ya, huh America? Yeah, great program. We were for that all along. In fact, it was originally a Republican idea. I don't know where you got the idea we were against it. Now, let's talk about tax cuts..."

I think he really just needs to go full out with this. I liked El Kilgore's suggestion:

I don't know anything about the president's relationship with Boehner. But it's becoming a matter of national security for him to find some way to take him aside, maybe give the Speaker a cigarette from his secret stash, and say: "I will see you in Hell before I negotiate over the debt limit. And if you let a default happen, I will devote the rest of my presidency to making sure you, personally, bear the blame, and go down in history with our most despised traitors and criminals. For generations, little school children in Ohio will cross themselves and make hex signs when your name is mentioned. So do not,  do not, go back and tell your crazy people they can win if they just stick together."

2wolves: I will not stop smitingencouraging the idiots.


Personally, I don't mind. Trolls are just a part of Fark. But you're fooling yourself if you're doing anything more than encouraging him.

"Yesterday, I carelessly misrepresented the ongoing budget debate and Speaker Boehner's work on behalf of the American people. Despite my remarks it's clear that the American people want both parties to come to the table to reopen the government, tackle this nation's debt crisis, and stop Obamacare's pain," Stutzman said in a statement.

1) Holding your breath until you get your way is not "work".

2) I'm pretty sure that's not clear. In fact, I'm pretty sure the American people want Congress to stop their temper tantrum and get essential services running again, and federal employees working again, and develop an actual plan for improving this country. Now THAT would be working on behalf of the American people.

It's a good smacking.

They'll cave by the end of the weekend.  I thought Friday at first, but forgot the 1st was Tuesday, not Monday

And the Tea Party will probably be in full revolt in the House over the debt ceiling.
