mjjt: (from Borowitz)  Sen. Cruz's closest ally, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) also spoke reverently of the shutdown, calling it "the most expensive Civil War reënactment in history."
"Unfortunately, once again, the wrong side won," he said


He actually said that shiat.  I thought you were kidding, but he actually farking said that.

somedude210: Weaver95: I think the first hurdle the GOP faces is admitting that they lost in the shutdown fight in the first place. I've seen plenty of republicans who are convinced that the shutdown was a win for their party.

There have also been some GOPers admitting they lost.

I'd be more impressed if they admit they lost and accept that this isn't the way to go


MSNBC This morning, some tea party guy was talking about how this was a poor strategy, how the GOP screwed the pooch by fighting a battle they couldn't win and negotiating with no leverage.

Then gainsaid the other talking heads who were saying that polling for Obamacare became more positive, undercutting the strategy completely.

Apparently the fights not over, Americans still hate Obamacare, and the TEA party still fervently believes that it is their duty to defund it by any means necessary.

The complaint is that this didn't work this time, not that it shouldn't have been done.

Can we just call a duck a duck and have the Tea Party officially declared as a domestic terrorist organization?

Cletus C.: Thrag: Cletus C.: Mentat: Cletus C.: Obama saying he will not negotiate, then negotiates. Failure.

The only thing Obama gave up in this fight was the back of his hand.

And written on the back of that hand was language on checking income eligibility for ACA applicants, a few spending measures for certain districts, a promise for bipartisan budget negotiations and a few more things. Not much. But he did negotiate.

Obama was so against checking income eligibility for ACA applicants that similar measures were already part of the bill. He gave up nothing here. The change was just theater by the GOP to convince the rubes that Obama gave up something. Looks like it worked on some.

Obama and congressional Democrats has been calling for budget negotiations for months. How is Obama and the democrats getting exactly what they have been calling for a concession?

He negotiated but gave up very little. But he negotiated, as hard as that seems to be to accept.


Actually, the House and Senate negotiated. Obama signed a bill.

But Cletus, I DO judge you by your comments... Which is why you're red. You're a Right-Wing Troll. Everything you've ever posted prior to today proves that fact. Deny all you want, the facts are the same.

Cletus C.: He negotiated but gave up very little. But he negotiated, as hard as that seems to be to accept.


Of course he negotiated.  He negotiated from a position of such strength that he willingly gave up a few tokens so that the other side didn't look like complete losers.  And they say Obama isn't an American.
