What exactly has Congree been doing this year? They've a record low number of bills, so what so they do when they are here?

Boehner cries in every context, so it's always fair to show a pic of him crying.

Boehner won't do shiat.

He's coward.

A savvy coward, but a coward none the less.  I almost feel sorry for him, the same kind of pity I felt for Dr. Frankenstein as he watched the monster he created destroy his life.
 
2014-07-03 02:18:31 PM  
his taunt is more likely to motivate the Republican base than Democratic voters.

He tried playing nice for 6 years. It did not work particularly well.

If everything Obama does pisses them off then it's an absolute fool's game to try to pussyfoot around their precious feelings in a doomed attempt to make them less mad.

Dems need to stop playing so much defense and start attacking the Republicans on their many, many faults.

Usually, their response to this is "Harry Reed isn't going to let it come up for vote, so why even bother!  Plus, less laws is better, a Congress should be judged based on the number of bills they don't pass!"

It's not really a sustainable source; SCOTUS is a pretty mixed bag and they only rule every so often on contentious stuff. Boehner's like the cold fusion of rage tears.

They're job creators.  Just think of all that taxpayer cash they splash around a restaurants, bars, hotels, strip clubs, theaters, local dens of prostitution, not to mention to lawyers for their time preparing defenses against sexual harassment suits from pages and interns.

While I know other farkers were being hysterical, some of us were more upset that belief was ruled just as viable as fact. THAT is my major issue with the case.

This is the position any rational person would adopt.

But, Tea Bagger Logic states those who bring up this point have "lost" and are "hysterical" and got it stuck to them.  So, winning, I guess.

Yeah, as was I; definitely disagreed with the ruling.

However the idea that Tears of Impotent Rage is sole-sourced by Republicans admits a shamelessly low level of partisan self-awareness.

I'm sure there is a moment, when the room is quiet and the first flush of the daily ration of bourbon begins to take hold, when the shaking subsides and the Speaker feels a great clarity and connection to his responsibilities, to the enormity of his task, and the confidence and courage to do his job. 

Then the clock strikes 6 AM and the moment is lost. We get to see the rest. And really, no one want to see John Boehner roll out of bed every morning.
 
2014-07-03 02:50:36 PM  
I disagree with the idea that this will motivate the Republican base more than the Democrats.  The Tea Partiers and religious right already hate Obama with the fire of a thousand suns.  This won't change their likelihood to show up at the polls.  More moderate Republicans dislike Obama but may be persuaded by Boehner's refusal to do anything and reject his purely political lawsuit.  Democrats who normally stay home during midterms will probably be motivated by other things, particularly the Hobby Lobby decision.

All this being said, I think we're in for a status quo election.  Democrats will hold the Senate, perhaps narrowly, but will fail to retake the House thanks to the 2010 gerrymander.  This will then tee up 2016 where the Democratic picture in the Senate is much better and a popular Democratic candidate could put the House back in play.  At this point, I'm basically waiting for 2020 when hopefully Democrats can retake enough governorships to undo some of the gerrymandering and make the House competitive again.

I think the article smacks of pearl clutching and vapours.

Personally, I would say to those poor Democratic candidates who don't know whether to fear aggressive rhetoric or not to man up on the issue.  How do you feel about how business is conducted in congress?  What do you think you'd do differently if the Dems had a majority?  Run on that.  Leave the worrying to people who submit shiatty opinion pieces to glorified blogs.

If Democrats are trying to steer away from Obama, they are stupid and cowardly. Republicans are pushing a "cry about stuff, screw stuff up" agenda and THAT NEEDS TO BE HIGHLIGHTED ON BILLBOARDS. It's easy to find stacks of evidence showing how bad the idea of a Republican in charge is, from the last president to the current Congress and even the governors taking away people's rights and selling out to corporate interests. It's not that farking hard, you biatches.

Everything and anything would rile up the idiot base of Republicans, so why worry about that? They don't understand how the government affects them, they just want their side to win. See also: Hobby Lobby ruling and how cool it is that businesses can have a religion and can use it to break the law. Because Jesus.

As for Boehner? One last push of bullshiat rhetoric before he gets eaten into obscurity by his constituents. Both sides are getting increasingly sick of him. Articulated perfectly at the top of this page, he'll do nothing about Obama's comment except lie more and pretend to drive hard into that OBAMA BAD territory, all the while drinking his last days as speaker away on an empty House schedule. Come November, the next two years until a new Democratic president will continue to be an obstructionist House and a slightly Democrat-controlled Senate never working together, except for their own benefits and some makeshift budgets to get by.

What I don't understand is why people think the Republican base is not currently riled up. They've been in a persistent state of near-hysteria since 2008. They literally can't be riled up any further.

It's actually good they are.  Moderate Republicans need to see the force that is driving their party.  Most moderate Republicans are actually Democrats, they just don't realize it.

I'm not sure who specifically, but it gets mentioned a lot. I'm saying if someone who is running for an elected position is actually doing that, it's a terrible move to make. You can take pretty much anything that Republicans complain about him, pull out some quick research, and prove it to be shiat.

I think it's because there's not a new story every hour about being even more riled up in our 24-hour "news" cycles. So it seems like they calm down one iota and then a new "scandal" pops up where, I don't know, Republican voters start lining up at polling places months in advance with their guns and American flag pins to be angry or whatever. You're right though, it's always something with the base,  always. Twitter can confirm.
