Bush/Cheney destroyed the GOP brand in the Oh Oh's ... they really have nothing to lose,except some serious backlash from the left when it comes back around.

You know it, Long On The Toe......when we of the Democrat Party run this country into the ground, when our policies cause the country to implode, we WILL blame Boooosh and the Republicans. And we do have a media that will get that message out for us......just as we have a media right now rightfully putting the 'shutdown' blame on Republicans. Forword, media, Forword....

The most overused talking point this decade?

It's the Republicans' fault.

"ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC are not telling viewers that the House of Representatives is trying to delay the individual mandate so that families get the same benefit that Obama gave to Big Business. Nor are they telling their viewers that House conservatives are trying to roll back the congressional exemption from Obamacare and that Senate liberals are fighting to keep it."

Yeah, FOX has a big market share of viewers, but the above bit is true, as I've SEEN these networks and their Obamasupport. Very big of them...

It's too bad that liberals do not see the light like the once far left liberal Ronald Wilson Reagan finally did.

They are too busy cursing the darkness.

It will last until Christmas so it will be our fault if there is no Christmas for the Federal employees.

Muslims do not celebrate Christmas. According to the scriptures, the celebration of Non Islamic religious festivals is not permitted.

It's interesting that the republicans are so concerned with 'fairness' all of a sudden. Is it fair that people who work for a living pay taxes upwards of 40%, while those who live off capital gains (other people's labor) only pay around 20%? Is it fair that people with preexisting conditions weren't even able to buy health insurance? Is it fair that profitable corporation keep getting tax breaks, while tax breaks are phased out for citizens making over 100k? Republicans pitched a fit when Obama stopped white house tours b/c of the sequester, yet they're perfectly happy to cut WIC assistance for our most vulnerable... just like the good Christians they claim to be.

I suppose we look like the dunce sitting in the corner to the rest of the world. We need to get our business in order and get back to being a world leader.

We'll see if the double-barreled Mainstream Media/Democrat alliance's talking points hold up as willgrr speculates.

If the Republican party is done away with, there will probably be another party that comes to take its place. Not the Tea Party either. Really, just think of the possibilities....

And single-party political system would be the biggest change of all. The Democrats wouldn't have anyone else to blame. Y'mean they might have to own something?

Although it's a little cloudy today, the sun came up. If the Democrats continue to Bully everyone, I say, keep the government, shutdown. Obama and friends are not following the "Law of the Land", they should be thrown in jail, for breaking the law.

That's right, Billdoesntgitit, he didn't even sign onto his own Obamacare. What does that say about this Law of the Land, program?

Still on the integrity kick, right whistler. Although the MDN overlooks your obvious slams at Veritas, everyone else sees you for the petty, hateful winger you really are.

Now that makes me chuckle, whistler. You don't even realize when you make a fool of yourself. Yep, that certainly makes sense especially when I review your other weird blogs.

You don't have a clue about what happened in the Syrian situation. Obama played that correctly. After the Republicans criticized him for not going in and giving relief to the rebels, which ones were good and which ones were bad, we did not know. Then, when he said he was going in, there was one country who really did not want that. Then we also had a bunch of "dumb" Republicans who did not know what was going on. He played Putin to push him to step into the fray. Just like he wanted. And, Putin did just that. Conflict over. Now, I will leave it up to BDGI to tell us the reason why.

Why do you keep bringing up Bush, dusty. Get over it. Goodness, he is gone. If they ever said anything, it would probably be that Bush was worst president in the US history and that is why they love him.

"loco, you disgust me.How you can push the agree button on anything this man says is beyond me."

Frankly, I don't know what your disgust-o-the-day-with-loco is about this time, willgrr. If I wait a little bit, you might tell me. Then again, maybe not.

And DustOff, I hereby say, in light of your Oct-04-13 9:28 AM post, that I sit corrected.
