FTA: "What I've said is that I will talk about anything," he said, after declaring in his opening statement, "We can't make extortion routine as part of our democracy."

Horrible analogy.

netizencain: Horrible analogy.


You're right, It should be more like "I'm not going to pay my mortgage this month unless you stop the requirement for car insurance"
 
2013-10-08 04:53:29 PM
That's actually a pretty good analogy.

Yes, but its more accurate than the "ObMAO wants a blank check to spend more of your money!" drivel that Fox News has been shouting and Teabaggers believe like gospel.

That's an okay analogy. And I'm right. Deal with it. And if you don't agree, I'm going to crash Fark

What? You're not going to do that?

Ok, I won't pay unless you defer interest for a year.

Hey, were are you going? Why won't you negotiate with me?

The Teapublicans have gotten the party into trouble, now someone has to find a way to get out of it while saving face, making it look like they've got control (when they don't).

And, Ted Cruz is an ass - I'm so bummed that we are stuck with his crap for five more years. :(

I can't speak for the government, but I know I'VE got to get my spending under control!  So I won't be paying my credit card bills until I can learn to stop buying so much stuff.
 
2013-10-08 05:28:33 PM
the GOP picked the wrong fight at the wrong time.  lets hope they back the f*ck off before it's too late.

Here is an analogy: it would be like not making paymens on thousands of loans to banks here and in Asia because a handful of backwards radical buffoons dont understand how global financial markets work.

So he talked about what should and shouldn't be routine in a democracy. QED, Libulardos.

so what happens if/when the GOP tantrum ends up forcing the US to default?  how long can we coast before the inevitable crash?

You know, the Republicans are peurile shiat-stains, but the whole trouble with Obama is he keeps bringing a knife to a gun fight, time and time again. He should be curb-stomping these assholes with direct simple language that conveys more than a little bit of anger and sense of emergency. Not the reserved intellectual tones he usually uses. They're witty, and they are red meat to a farkwit right winger to keep going because you're winning, to their point of view .. poindexter's talkin fancy bout how we're wreckin his gub-mint again.

I just imagine what eviscerated piles of rotting meat Bill Clinton would have made of Boehner and the tea baggers by now. shiat, Hillary could do it. But Obama is just such a nicey nice and right now is not the time.

If they miss the deadline we won't coast so much as plummet. Think brick, not airplane.

EvilEgg: Weaver95: so what happens if/when the GOP tantrum ends up forcing the US to default?  how long can we coast before the inevitable crash?



Obama shouldn't start with "You incredible dick!  Can I borrow $5?"  Reid shouldn't start with, "Whatever, we do what we want."  And Boehner shouldn't go with "Defund Obamacare or we will not fund the government."

However, if I were Boehner I'd do this very simple thing.  Clean CR that funds the government for 30 days.  Pass a budget. And if the Senate doesn't approve it, tell them you will be back to this point in a month if you don't do the responsible thing and pass our budget, or pass our budget but remove what you don't like.  But sending us a second different budget will result in no more negotiations.  You have 30 days to do what the Senate is supposed to do and let the House do what it is supposed to do...budgets.

At least he learned (sometime around May 2010, if I have my read of things correct) not to actually attempt negotiations with the Repubs because they aren't negotiating in good faith.

The people who have orchestrated this mess think that no government (read, big brother isn't looking over the shoulder of big business, so big business is gonna do what it wants) is better than any government. They believe they've already won, regardless of conventional wisdom.

that only works tho if the GOP stop being pricks.  not much chance of that happening any time soon.

And will the inevitable crash change anyone's mind about what's going on?  Will the teabaggers suddenly say, "Oh my, Ted Cruz was wrong!"  Will the Cock brothers suddenly stop funding teabagger movement?  Will Faux News stop blaming everything on the President and Nancy Pelosi?
