Will people be blaming or giving credit, once they start getting their bills?

People are so critical of the GOP. Particularly the GOP themselves. They are not realizing that the GOP is not necessarily always going to be the party of the stupids

I think right now a lot of dems are scratching their heads and wondering what kind of political move to make next and coming up blank

Dent is free to sign that discharge petition and let his citizens deal with him
In 2014. No one is holding him back from signing that petition. If he feels
that strongly, put your signature where your mouth is Dent.

Wathing Sen Cruz on Megyn Kelli's new show....that's the ONLY reason I'm watching...to see Sen Cruz. She keeps trying to throw gotcha questions to Sen Cruz...even showed a *poll* with him having low favorables.

Cruz is handling Kelli perfectly...he's swatting off all of the absurd questions and coming across as professional and how this is all about Americans and NOT himself or government.

Make the furlough permanent. Non-essential federal employees get full pay when the furloug ends. Make sure it never ends.

And add a bunch more to ‘non-essential’ until the federal government can live within its means.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =
WE had better hope the LIBS don’t wake up and realize they don’t have to say a thing.
There are enough RINO’s willing to ‘sink the R’s’ if it means they can get a ‘smile’ from the LIBs.

The only thing keeping ‘US’ in this game is BO, Reid, Pelosi or Biden manage to make an idiotic statement or two every day...Reid and Obozo keep standing up and saying “NO NEGOTIATION” while the press ALLOWS BO to say “I am open to negotiation” with no repercussions. Of course it is a great day when Reid shouts “IT IS DOA”, then ‘they’ allow him to get away with “They have to send me something”.

Even the dumbest of the dumb will eventually figure this out. Well, eventually can mean when it is too late, but I have (a) little hope for the immediate future.

This squid was my congressthing when I had the misfortune of living in soccer-mom country in the Philly suburbs. He’s a pretty good reflection of the voters in his district.

It is just amazing. These guys are always talking about unity and not being extreme but who do they criticize? Its Ted Cruz. A guy who is trying to change the game and pull DC and America out of the ditch by force of will. I can’t believe that GOP in his district want this kind of whimpish bifurcation.

Yet it’s Nancy Pelosi who is blocking his “moderate compromise” LOL!
http://blogs.rollcall.com/218/shaming-moderate-dems-pelosi-slams-bipartisan-shutdown-solution/

“Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., expressed strong opposition in an Oct. 3 closed-door whip meeting to an effort spearheaded by New Democrat Coalition chairman Ron Kind of Wisconsin and leading GOP moderate Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania....
In private, according to multiple members and aides familiar with the situation, Pelosi slammed the proposal with much stronger rhetoric as sending the wrong message about what Democrats were willing to do to stop the government shutdown.”

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Not only that, it has been quite a while since ANY R has started something ‘controversial’ and saw it through to the end, no matter who he/she ‘weewees’ off.

Boner and CO have the BOHICA method down to a science and if that doesn’t work, just shed a tear.....

Boner’s track record is so bad that I don’t think I am the only one ‘waiting for him to cave’.

Of course I surely hope I am wrong, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and then...

SQUID?? Why would you call him a SQUID?

A squid is an intelligent form of Marine life.

Marines call us USN types SQUID’s and I see nothing in that SLUG’s past that would give him the ‘right’ to be referred to as a SQUID...

Of course, I just ‘PEED off’ all the SLUG fans.

It’s not a very conservative district. The men like their guns, but apart from that, it’s RINO central. Pretty much like everything within the blast radius of the Philly media.

My apologies. I actually intended to type “squish”, but called a last second audible.

Even squish is too good for him. He’s nothing but a boot-licking, self-serving scumbag. Always has been.

Charlie Dent is my rep. Even though he is a 5 foot 4 inch little RINO runt, we have to understand that his district is loaded with Allentown food stamp leaches, Bethlehem rust belt union diehards and Easton Larry Holmes welfare queens. It is what it is.

They drew his district from the liberal Lehigh Valley west to the Harrisburg suburbs. In the west there are conservatives who would vote for a challenger for sure in the Republican primary next year.

He’s just shown he’s on the wrong side and needs to be “listed” with the other traitors.

If these guys yield to the pressure then they’ll yield on everything else we sent them there to do.

Rep. Charlie Dent, it all boils down to this:

The Silent Majority is what you call the TEA Party.

Deal with it.

The only thing that is “new” is THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY.

RINO Hunting Season begins 1-1-2014.

BTW, this 2014 RINO hunt has no bag limit, tents or caves - - -
