HotIgneous Intruder: The Affordable Care Act: Passed by the congress, signed by the president, litigated before the Supreme Court, the law of the land.


It's better than that.

Passed by Congress (as elected by the people)
Signed by the President (who was elected by the people)
Litigated unsuccessfully before the Supreme Court (legitimized by the law of the land)
Survived more than forty repeal votes (as cast by representatives elected by the people)
Enforced by the President (who was re-elected by the people)

The GOP's argument?

"We're just trying to protect the people like they want us to!"

They literally caused this entire mess solely because they're angry that when they play by the rules they can't get their way because nobody likes their way and democracy has spoken strongly and repeatedly against them.

And to top it off, the only reason we don't already have a clean CR on funding is because ONE PERSON won't let the elected body vote on it.

A tiny group of people who represent MAYBE 20% of the country are gaming the system because they're angry that in free and fair elections their opinions lose. It's completely insane.

Unconditionally? No, the condition has already been met. He's just trying to force them to hold up their end of the bargain they already made.

And this is much bigger than Obama vs. GOP. Regardless of party, there is one thing ALL Presidents agree on: maintain Executive power. This is about THE Presidency, not HIS Presidency.

FTA: It's win-win.
Really, now?

A serious attack on the deficit - good.
The deficit's already decreasing, and would be decreasing even more rapidly if the Republicans wouldn't insist on throwing the whole goddamn craftsman tool set in the gears every chance they get.

Refiguring sequestration to restore some defense spending and some logic to discretionary spending - also good.
Restore some defense spending, but restore logic to discretionary spending - yeah, just go ahead and say you're for restoring defense and cutting entitlements more.

Forcing the president off Mount Olympus - priceless.
And here's the real goal. So really, it's a win-win-win, with all wins going to the TP, in a game where the stakes are the welfare of the world economy.

Yeah, go fark yourself, Krauthammer.

Turn that around, and it starts to make a lot more sense: They need to lay that groundwork, and subvert the authority of the so-called "unitary executive," because they realize that national demographics are turning against them. They might like to win the presidency some time in the near future, but they've seen the writing on the wall, and know that ain't gonna happen, no way, no how.

I think it's more likely that some strategist somewhere in the Republican camp-an  actual strategist, not the pants-on-head retarded gaffe machines that make the rounds of the nightly news-have run the numbers, admitted to themselves that the tide has turned against them, and has resorted to procedural skulduggery like gerrymandering and attempting to establish rules like this in order to maintain the minimum foothold needed to enact their agenda.

Hell, that would also explain  why the nightly news is infected with Republican poster-children for engaging brain before operating mouth, rather than being reined in by their handlers: Because they don't  need to. A viable presidential candidate is unlikely on their side, so they don't have to cultivate anyone to fill that seat. All they have to do is keep their base riled up, and certainly the shiat-stirrers do that.

Just claim enough congressional seats to introduce the kind of chaos the Teafaulters are doing, count on the president (who, remember, is going to be a Democrat and by axiom generally compassionate) to do the "better" thing and keep the government going in exchange for massive concessions that continue to weaken his power, and they can make the man in the highest office a figurehead, if not their biatch.

The problem is, I don't think Obama wants to be anyone's biatch, nor does he want to see future administrations hamstrung by similar shenanigans. Does this mean the GOP is on the ropes? Absolutely not. They have their comparatively safe seats at the cost of disenfranchised voters, and most of their procedural groundwork is already in place. The Sequester of 2011 was the rehearsal, and this shutdown is the opening curtain.

I may get troll-bites from this one, but Obama needs to hold the line. We need a dictator to break their machinery.

Maybe if they started acting like principled politicians, he wouldn't have so much of an opportunity to show the world how unprincipled they can be.

They tried to extort the President into compliance.  They tried to rewire how the political system works in this country and they did so by relying on the President being a kinder, more moral politician than they are.

He could literally order the DC police to arrest them for treasonous behavior and I'd stand up and cheer.  The GOP went too far this time.

Trivia Jockey: badhatharry: Trivia Jockey: Do these people really not see why "negotiation" isn't even relevant here?  It's like calling up your credit card company after maxing out the card, demanding that they double your limit, and then complaining that they "won't negotiate" when they say no.  And then you refuse to pay the card, go to work, and feed your kids.

Or like when you refuse to pay your rent when your landlord raises the rent because he put in a new air conditioner that doesn't work. Crazy.

That analogy needs tweaking...the air conditioner actually works.  It works so well that the other people in the building who couldn't afford air conditioning now have their apartments cooled fir the first time.


They just decided it didn't work before it was installed. And then kept feeling that way while it was installed. And now that its being turned on, they are still saying it doesn't work, even as cool air wafts through the apartment.

He almost makes sense towards the end talking about how much of the budget is tied up in SS, Medicare and interest etc, etc...  he could have gone all the way and said that it doesn't makes sense to have historically low tax rates on wealthy Americans, who've seen their wealth explode in size since the US decided that supply side economics actually had a relationship to reality.

Instead he just drools over how lovely it would be to take the president down a notch.  Very strange.  It's almost like he wants to write something meaningful but he knows it won't pay the bills so he has to pen obviously disingenuous and factually incorrect drivel.

I'm an old farker and I've never voted Republican and I know a lot of other folks my age that haven't either.  You're correct to say that the majority of my generation is conservative but also there are many teatards in my area of the country who are in their 20's - 40's and pull the f#cking teatard lever every godam time they vote and send these jerks off to the state capitol and DC.


Ok, Ok.
I hear you. I'm north of my 40s and have never voted GOP.
Conservative is one of the most popular default ideologies in America. (Forty percent, actually, regardless of party self-identification.) I think that's a function of nostalgia for a time that never really existed except as imagined in their naive, simpler, younger minds. Boomer presidents have been a leadership disaster, Clinton the NAFTA Gobalist, Bush the Globalist and Permawar President, Obama the Globalist and Friend of Wall Street and sustainer of Bush policies.

I don't really know what to say, except that maybe people are tired of seeing one generation get all the gravy American could offer and seeing nothing left for them, so they want to burn it down.
Can't blame them for being angry.
This is the result of greedy, cruel, stupid policy coming home to roost.

I stupidly attended college and took out student loans to do so and the economy has left me stranded with nothing but debt. Personal choices, whatever. We live in a contracting economy now and people will just have to accept that we're all farked and unless we cooperate to help each other, it's over.
It's ironic that the catalyst for this nightmare is actually a government program that allows people like me to buy health insurance.

No, insist that they not weaken if not out right destroy the office of the President of the United States. That is what is at stake here with the debt ceiling. The President made a huge mistake last time and realizes that this time there is no room for compromise, no room for retreat, no room for surrender.  Either the Republicans acknowledge and accept a Black Democrat as the legitimate President of the United States or the economy will burn.

They have spent almost 6 years trying to rewrite the fact that the President is a Black Democrat and now they are standing in a pile of gasoline with a lit flare. Either they throw that flare into a bucket of water and admit defeat, or they burn everyone.

Every time the President agrees to a tea party item they back off, double down and then claim the president won't talk. They get almost every thing they wanted from the Grand Bargain, Simpson-Bowels, this years budget, or this summers CR talks but as soon as they get it they back away and add new demands. It is almost like they really don't want an agreement but can't be seen not talking. It is kind of like buy a new car and offering $20,000 on a $25,000 car and when the dealer says yes you demand $15,000 and cry that he wouldn't deal.
