I will never, ever, tire of mocking Cruz with Dr. Seuss jokes.

I will mock him on Fark,
I will mock him in the dark,
I will mock him here and there,
I will mock him everywhere,

We cannot survive a Cruzian presidency,
We cannot have senators with intellectual deficiency.
I cannot sit idly by,
I cannot let his stupidity fly,

I do not like you, Cruz, you ruse,
I can not beat you as I choose,

Are lox halal?

and Kenyan

and, possibly, alive.

Let's just cut to the heart of the matter, here.  If someone killed Obama tomorrow, half this country would take the following week off for a 7-day orgy.  Don't kid yourself.  Parties would be thrown, much alcohol would be consumed, and general frivolity would occur.

Rush Limbaugh would be masturbating on air.  Fox News would fly a farking mission accomplished banner.  Mitt Romney would have a smirk on his face because he would think that makes him president as 1st runner up.

The saddest takeaway of this whole sorry affair is that when most people decide not to vote in a
democracy, the inevitable outcome is that power devolves to the most committed fanatics.

/We do not deserve nice things in this country.

Republicans have for the most part decided to ditch the concept of working with "those people" and embrace a white nationalist strategy for future elections.

This white fortress strategy has been outlined by Pat Buchanan, Rush Limbaugh, and Byron York in particular. The premise is that white voters still make up a national majority. Win them, and you win elections. Toward that end, the party should halt legalization, strictly limit immigration, and intensify a racial appeal based on anti-immigrant paranoia.

Math says this will fail, but every good Fox News viewer knows that math is just a trick liberals use to confuse good people. There simply aren't enough white voters who are inspired by racial appeals. Romney won the largest share of the white vote in thirty years. Yet, even if he had tied the modern record, Reagan's 63% in 1984, he would still have lost.

White nationalism is not that popular outside the core red states.


Can't be cooperating with that thug in the Black House, knowwhatimean?

So why are Republicans drifting toward this suicidal strategy? Republicans are embracing this approach because it is winning at the regional level. The party's appeal may be shrinking nationally, but all politics is ultimately local. White nationalist politics is particularly potent in Southern and rural states. In the South and the rural west the GOP's new white nationalist message has dovetailed with a resurgent Neo-Confederate wave that is only gaining momentum.

somedude210: We have Biden, you want a Biden?


I think Obama should resign (with his resignation speech being, "It's the law. Deal with it. Late."), just so we'd have President Biden and Vice-President Boehner. President Biden would be epic, and taking Boehner from a position of extreme power for which he is sorely ill-prepared to a guy who's biggest responsibility is to not travel on the same conveyance as The President would be awesome.

If that were actually what Cruz was asking for in exchange for a CR and debt ceiling raise, it would seem negotiating position where there was much more room for the President to at least partially accommodate some of it. He'd probably be willing to eat the lox at least, and might even be willing to do so on Fox.

I can't imagine with the current schism in the Repulican Party, the "Tea Party" would have the clout to effect that.

Obama agreed to review the House Republican proposal for reopening the government, but reiterated that he wouldn't pay a ransom, the Democratic source said.

Is he still pushing that tired old line?  Cooperating with the House is not paying ransom, it's what a president is supposed to do.
 
2013-10-11 10:38:31 AM
The Biden has finally spoken

"Biden was mostly quiet in the meeting but did say at one point that Obama has made concessions as president that he hasn't seen in 36 years in the Senate."

That's because this is how the GOP "negotiates."

Would he at least go on Fox and say "Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoff tchoff-tcho-tchoff" and "Fraka-kaka-kaka-kow"? Because that would be farking hilarious.

Hey, remember after 9/11 when some news stations started repeatedly airing the same clips of a very small group of muslims celebrating it?

The nationwide orgy will be a bit more like that. A very small group with a lot of exposure.

I_C_Weener: So, the whole "No negotiating" speech was just...another hollow promise from a politician?


He hasn't made any concessions at all yet, and I think it's highly unlikely that he will.  

The most likely outcome is that Republicans get thrown a small bone to save face- something like removing the tanning bed tax, or some other useless concession- and then pass a continuing resolution.

Then we get the hideousness of awatching these morons try to work out a budget.

I lived through the Bush the Lesser years, as did you I assume, and I don't recall the left ever ramping up their anti-Bush commentary to the point that one would feel certain if he copped a bullet to the noggin, they'd celebrate.  I wouldn't have been glad he was dead, because that would mean President Cheney, and who the fark wanted that?!  If anything, I wanted that asshole alive for his entire presidency to avoid that exact situation.
