I observe that the "echo chamber" effect of Fark is quite prevalent in this discussion.

The fact of the matter is that the House members all won their own elections, fairly, in their evenly and fairly established Congressional districts. The majority of those members are Republicans, meaning that the majority of the nation's districts prefers Republican leadership. This means that the American people as a whole wish for the Democratic President to compromise his beliefs with the Republican leadership in the House by coming over to their position and enacting their entire policy agenda, yet he has consistently refused to do this, and at every turn he has arrogantly advocated that some of his policy items be enacted in addition to Republican agenda positions.

Dr. Whoof: LasersHurt: Yes please: LasersHurt: Yes please: Alphax: Yes please: They did win elections. That's precisely why they're able to cause such difficulty for Obama. Either he's suggesting this should be a dictatorship or he doesn't understand how congressmen get their positions. I doubt it's the latter.

They did not win enough elections to choose how the nation is run.  And even if they did, refusing to do their jobs for the past 3 years, and trying to bring down the nation from within is not appropriate.

So if you're not in the majority, you (and by extension, the people you represent) don't matter? If that was what I was being told I wouldn't show up for work either.

You're intentionally conflating "shutting down everything" with "normal legislative process". They can do as much of the latter as they want, be as vocal as they want. But they can't just oppose everything and shut the government down.

Those are the only limits being proposed. Nobody is trying to disempower the minority.

I'm not conflating. I actually agree with you in general, up until your last sentence. But in his words yesterday Obama seems to be explicitly saying that.

How? The actual context he said them in is about the shutdown. It seems like you have to ignore the context, then extrapolate what you think that means.

Not to mention, this is specifically about setting goals that cannot be reasonably obtained and then shutting down the government when you can't obtain them.  They were NEVER going to dismantle the ACA.  It just was not going to happen.  They could have set their sights on other items, pushing for locking in the sequestration level spending (not just for the CR, but for good), or potentially making tweaks to the ACA that would have had bipartisan support (like repealing the medical device tax, which I disagree with, but you could get Dems on board for that).

Instead they chose to tilt at windmills and bring this nation, and the entire world economy, to the brink of disaster... ...


Look, all they wanted was for the Democrats to enact a more conservative plan for healthcare reform, maybe based on some idea that was supported by the Heritage Foundation back in the 90s, possibly something that was tested out on the state level by a conservative governor.  But NOOO!  We got Obamacare instead...

To those complaining about the President's message...
"I'm tired of these Democrats acting like they won the election. Somebody needs to stand up and say, "When you win the election, you pick the nominees. Until then, shut up! Just shut up! Just go away! Bury yourselves in your rat holes and don't come out until you win an election."
- Rush Limbaugh / 2005

Silly, that only applies when it's Republicans losing elections.  Remember:

When Republicans win, it's because they have a clear mandate from the people and the Party has absolute power.

When Republicans lose: It's because Liberals have rigged the election, by the Black Panthers or Muslim Brotherhood or ACORN intimidating voters, or massive voter fraud of people voting when they shouldn't be able to, or George Soros had somebody hack the Diebold voting machines.

To their own logic, they can never legitimately lose an election.  If they lose, it's because of liberal trickery.  Thus, when they win they get to dictate the agenda.  When they lose, they get to dictate the agenda.  They want a one-party state where they are the only political party.

Unfortunately, the TP views "compromise" as something to be ashamed of.  The ability to compromise is highly regarded in all aspects of human society, except with Teabaggers.  They simply do not understand things the way one might have expected of normal people of voting age ten or more years ago.

These are people who can only process information in black and white, declarative statements.  They have been trained since birth to feel victimized by everyone at all times.  To them, the universe is scarier than shiat, and just being able to turn on Fox News while simultaneously breathing already requires that they dial their brain stems up to 11.  Their only way of expressing themselves is by complaining that the people they hate are actively destroying all that is good in heaven and earth.  The phrase "checks and balances" has as much meaning to them as the Voynich Manuscript.

Democrats when Junior was president: "Is this a good idea, or not? It may not be, seeing as he's made some piss-poor decisions in the past. Let's think about it first."

Republicans when Obama is president: "That ni-bong Obama and his whore of a ni-bong heifer b*tch said that breathing air is good for you! Goddammit I'm gonna hold my breath because there is no way I'm gonna let these ni-bongs tell me what to do!!"

It's not just that. Just as a for-instance, our Republican governor is so genuinely awful that he's pretty much locked Republicans out of the Governorship for a GENERATION. Every single Republican who runs after him is going to have to run against him. We're going to go back to rocking back and forth from two-term Democrats to two-term Independents again.

And at the federal level, running complete nuts lost them at least three Senate seats in 2010. They doubled down on the derp in 2012, and it cost them at least two more that they ought to have won. They'll probably run more unelectable candidates in 2014, which will allow the Democrats to keep the Senate until 2016, which should be a bloodbath given the seats being defenderd. And they've turned the House -- which, structurally, should be theirs for a decade -- into a possible contest in the next cycle.

All they had to do after Obama was elected for the first time: oppose, to the extent that the minority party always opposes, and wait for the correction to the 2008 landslide that was always going to happen, given that the economy was always going to continue sucking short-term. But nope, they had to go full retard, and now they have at least eight years of a Democratic president, potentially a decade or more of Democratic Senate control, a bloody civil war and a bunch of purple states that likely won't be electing Republican governors for many years to come.

And such is the irony of Obama's tenure, that a guy who was elected with the genuine intention of getting shiat done even if it meant major concessions in the spirit of bipartisanship may be on his way to being remembered as the president who crushed his opponents beneath his heel, simply by existing.

Dimensio: I observe that the "echo chamber" effect of Fark is quite prevalent in this discussion.

The fact of the matter is that the House members all won their own elections, fairly, in their evenly and fairly established Congressional districts. The majority of those members are Republicans, meaning that the majority of the nation's districts prefers Republican leadership. This means that the American people as a whole wish for the Democratic President to compromise his beliefs with the Republican leadership in the House by coming over to their position and enacting their entire policy agenda, yet he has consistently refused to do this, and at every turn he has arrogantly advocated that some of his policy items be enacted in addition to Republican agenda positions.

Asa Phelps: antidisestablishmentarianism: doyner: seekrit muslin

Didn't Hillary start that in the primaries with the birth certificate thing? I don't really remember.

Yes. Yes she did.


No, she didn't.

Internet chain emails alleging Obama was a Muslim began emerging in 2007. No one claims "credit" for them, of course, but the Fwd: Fwd: Fed: chain email was then as it it now a tactic used by right wingers.

In 2007 a religious based e-mag called Insightmag[dot]com published a discredited story that "Hillary's team has questions about Obama's Muslim background".

2 days later FOX and Friends highlighted the article without discrediting it. Hill and co denied the article and any connection to the story whatsoever a day later.

Hill admittedly added fuel to the fire when she made her famous "as far as I know" modifier when asked if Obama was a Muslim during a tv interview but have no doubt that that smear campaign was originated and perpetuated by the GOP.

Elizabeth Warren

I'd say she's up there, but a lot of what she is trying to do (kick the banks and Wall St in the balls) is behind the scenes and she doesn't get much attention for it. She'd need some major legislation to get passed to propel her to the forefront.

Warren's a no-go, no matter how much I love her. Biden doesn't ooze presidential gravitas, no matter how much I love him as Vice. Hillary's the default, establishment candidate, depending on if she runs. By the time 2016 rolls around, Booker will have molded himself as Obama 2.0 and could make a "hope and change" run at it. He's already running the exact same plays that Obama did to get elected.


I'm not a Warren supporter but if the inbreds keep up like this much longer we could run farking Stalin and still walk away with it.

Didn't Hillary start that in the primaries with the birth certificate thing? I don't really remember.

I think so.  I wonder if she regrets opening that can of worms.

Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign was so slimy and nasty that it drained any bit of enthusiasm I might have had about her and made me support Obama that much more.  I still would have voted for her over McCain and Palin, but I would not have felt good about it at all.

I hope she doesn't pul the same shiat in 2016, but I am not holding my breath.

I hope she doesn't run, to be honest.  What I'd like is for her to hint at it up until the race starts in earnest.  Let the GOP put all their focus on her in the meantime.  I don't know he the leading candidate would be right now.  I'm not sure if there's any obvious front-runners for it, other than maybe Biden?

Well, he's not wrong.

When the Republicans win, it's a mandate by the people to follow through on their policies.
When the Republicans lose, it's only because the will of the people was ignored and it's up to them to push through their policies.

Once the GOP embraces reality, maybe they'll have more success.
