For some reason many conservatives think it would be better to shut the Gov't down.

I don't know what they're smoking.

At least they’re predictable.

Hmm. Take a stand, or fold?

Fold.

Every time.

Every d@mn time.

we all knew boehner wasn’t up to the task when he chose his old boys network instead of michele and steve.

this is likely the begining of the end of the republican party. we’d all better start thinking about a third party and an obama second term.

just remember as conservatives, we are individual creators first. we may have to go underground but we can survive to fight again. what choice do we have. throw in our children’s future. not a chance.

Oh please. 1 week makes Boehner look compassionate and still keeps the Dems on the hook.

Reality is not how it looks through the Internet-Lens, kidos.

I knew this group of Republicans in the House was going to stink when they did nothing at all for three months. They seem to be continuing the trend.

“He said he needs this (the as-of-yet-introduced bill) and the support of the conference going into that meeting at the White House, because he feels it gives him more leverage,”

It’s probably what Obama faxed him yesterday.

Mr. Boohoo has all of us crying after seeing his feckless leadership in action. He should resign his post and let a real conservative, like Michelle Bachmann, be Speaker.

A government shutdown means a paid vacation for most government workers. I’ve never seen one yet where Congress didn’t make up the missed pay, without requiring makeup of the missed work.

I have HAD IT with this wimp Boehner and the weak-kneed Republicans! The RNC sent me a “Presidential Survey Letter” that I received today. They wanted to know what issue I wanted addressed, and left a blank space for me to write in. I filled it up with SPENDING! SPENDING! SPENDING. I wrote in the margin that I wasn’t going to give the RNC ONE THIN DIME until the House voted in 1 trillion of spending cuts, to take effect in 1 year. Like that would ever happen.

““We’re serious about trying to prevent a government shutdown. We’re also serious about cutting spending,”

No you aren’t.

Boehner, the *creative caver*, finding new and better ways to cave.

Why not include this little note:

*******************************EXCERPT**********************************

The measure would cut $12 billion in funding from current levels, The Hill confirmed.

**********************************

It is absolutely STUPID to shutdown the Government over these CR's......

Now lets battle over the big item when Ryan lays that out!

The Democrats want a SHUTDOWN on the small stuff!!!

I thought Boehner was going to be a leader, but I guess I
was totally wrong.

Since QE2 announcement, the Fed has purchased well over 70% of all Treasuries.

When the debt ceiling is raised and QE3 annoucned, it is expected the Fed will be the purcahser of over 80% of all Treasuries.

Meanwhile China is not increasing Treasury holdings, Japan is liquidating Treasuries to pay for their own crisis, the UK is in worse shape than the US, and the Cayman Islands holding companies are finding safer havens with higher returns in other markets.

SO the question is, why raise the debt ceiling when there are no buy side participants in the debt market?

As soon as everyone not at the table realises no one else is sitting at the poker table either, interest rates are going to soar.

wow. there are clearly people here who don’t understand how the world works.

what this all means is the either boehner is a fool (which would be preferable to the other alternative) or boehner is *afraid.*

to quote a brilliant mind: “fear is the mind killer.”

the sharks all know this and obama and the dems are nothing if not sharks. now the smell blood. they will never give in. the main chance has been lost.

This isn’t news. Boehner announced weeks ago that all he would do as Speaker is speak, smoke, and weep. He’s worse than useless.

I wonder if I dare to think that Boehner is finally about to take charge?

*Funding the military through September* plus a stop gap bill for one more week: then go for the gold?

Our House Bill with the riders or shut your damn government down?
