Thank you for hanging tough, Mr. President. Democrats have already compromised and agreed to an austere GOPTea budget.
How about bringing a clean CR to a vote, Mr. Speaker, or have the Koch’s not given you permission yet?
Has the minority Tea Party threatened to take away your Speakership, limousine, staff, suite of offices and hundreds of thousands of extra dollars a year if you don’t do as they say?
Meanwhile, the suffering of Americans continues because Republicans only listen to the minority in their party (and the country,) the Tea Party.

billygitmo, I don't have a boyfriend other than my husband. Like I've said before, one boyfriend is quite enough.
All plagiarizing aside, it'd be nice if some lefties would do as they say and not as they do...

Very well put Dusty. This SHIP OF FOOLS should have everyone worried.
Why, should they(libs) worry when they are too dumb to abandon ship. It would be them rebuilding the country either. They'll wonder where their free lunch went.
billgitmo: "This week I called some Republicans I used to talk to (and some that they recommended I talk to) about the effect the shutdown is having on the Republican Party in Washington...."
Suppposedly, this is billgitmo talking turkey. Sorry folks, no such drumstick.
His stuff is from a "New Republic" article written by John B. Judis (wonder how that's pronounced) dated 10-10-13.
Article's title: "The Last Days of the GOP - We could be witnessing the death throes of the Republican Party"
Sure, those folks at the New Republic REALLY CARE about the GOP. Now I'll tell another one.
And btw, billgitmo, you didn't really plagiarize in your post, did you? I don't care, but perhaps some do, like your buddy willgrr. I can just feel his disappointment...

Again dustwhistledonnamaybill, I have not commented on this thread for days. You are delusional.

garr bage, why do you care what's happening to the Republican Party? I seriously doubt anything you said or made up. I rather doubt also you have any real Republican friends to confide in and if they were to know what you are all about...would not hesitate to throw you our the door.
It always does. That's why I tend to neither trust nor care about them.

President Obama Job Approval
RCP average: Approve 44.7% Disapprove 50.0%
RCP polls include Rasmussen (highest at 51% approval), NBC News/WSJ, Gallup, Democracy Corps, Reuters/Ipsos, The Economist/YouGov, AP/GfK (lowest at 37% approval), Fox News, CNN Opinion Research, and Quinnipiac
Everything depends upon which poll one wants to use, doesn't it?
Are the polls favoring the President lately?
37% approval rate and counting
Governance by polls stinketh.

Versitass, remember to drink plenty of water to replenish your lacrimal glands. Change the crying towels regularly and remember a little bit of Kool-Aid helps the medicine go down.

Koch bros. vs Soros et al
There's a money showdown for you...
A small fact: MDN gets to choose which poster's words stay, capitalists that they are.
If one's looking for a completely free forum, there's always the street corner, unless the police come along and ticket for disturbing the peace.
A small idea: buy a newspaper and publish whatever you want.
Has the MDN been deliberately punitive in the way it "Removes from Site" certain postings that they do not agree with but allow others to remain because it's within their political objective?
Ya betcha!!! And with that little bit of Veritasness...I'm out of here and see you when Cramers' up for re-election.

"Why is money only good if it supports Dead Muck rats Veritassels???
Answer the question... Or don't you have an answer you can copy from someone else????"
Would anyone answer a question from the Tea Party diplomacy squad like this? And, does it pain you to see what you've written bdgi from a c/p?

"I suppose a source is not needed for this"
I gave you a source loco and the FACTS would fill an arena...You're losing it! Just like your brother bdgi...
"The left really hates it when the Koch brothers spend money"
Left/Right who cares...When subversive tactics are used to create chaos inflicting harm on the people of the Republic this is "TREASON"...
"Feelings vs Facts" showdown?" loco

"The amount of money lost on this shutdown should not be at taxpayer expense rather the Govt. should put a lien on the Koch Bros. to pay it back!"
I suppose a source is not needed for this one, because it is so passionately delivered. After all, isn't that what counts in a "Feelings vs Facts" showdown?
"Accepting demands from hardline ideologues perpetrated by 1/2 of 1/3 of a democracy is not cutting a deal or Negotiating..."
Has anyone ever imagined that people (i.e., constituents, voters, citizens) are CALLING their elected officials to weigh in on this current situation? And as a result, it might not get to be Beltway Business as normal?
Many people are still facing unemployment, in spite of rosy figures trotted out for the masses. The "recovery" is slow and far from complete. Many jobs have been relegated to part-time status as a direct result of the burdens placed upon employers by the "wonderful" Obamacare Tax.
That's the real story in America. Real people are fed up with shenanigans in DC. Why can't the gov't NOT spend more than it takes in, like Normal Americans?
Get a clue, DC. Get rid of the juvenile posturing--if that shoe fits, wear it, whoever you are. Sit down at the budget table and use the knife and fork to CUT SPENDING. It's
"Bread and Circus Day"
I liked this one, muleskinner.
The most troubling aspect of all this is...In todays paper(real one), it is reported that 110 or so people own 35% of the wealth in Russia...
While the top 1 percent in the US own more than 40% of the nation’s approximately $54 trillion in wealth, they earn about 19% of the income. In other words, the rich get richer(Forbes)
I find NOTHING in the Republican Party trying to change this trend and I find EVERYTHING to indicate that Cantor,Ryan & Boehner, (having taken Obamacare off the table now) are paid spokesmen for the Koch Bros.
Furthermore...The amount of money lost on this shutdown should not be at taxpayer expense rather the Govt. should put a lien on the Koch Bros. to pay it back!

"MDN is biased to the core..."
A. Yes, ridiculously so
And just to prove "Money Can't Buy You Love" Worldview...The Koch brothers have spent 236 million dollars funding/financing every organization willing to spread the Anti-Obamacare message since 2012 to no avail...
Patients United,Freedom Partners,American Future Fund,Heritage Foundation, etc,etc...
Now, presumably under pressure by foreign investors and market conditions..."We had no specific Obamacare agenda"...Yeah...Sure!
The voters will remember...cont
Not Bill Gar is not a way to make your points Heard! Who are You?
"Quote from"Worldview, Obama has never produced a budget..Funny you should bring up the Constituion..And wanting to CHANGE it.. "
The president either approves or vetoes a budget. Which one did he do? Yeah you do not know. EOS
MDN is biased to it's Core.
b. Maybe in some cases
c. Not at all
