I’m afraid (as cynical as I am) that you may be right. Repubs should have played their cards better and aimed for a HIGHER amount....then negotiate.

They don’t even know how to haggle!!!!!

Carl Cameron on FOX is saying that the GOP Caucus is discussing a Democrat offer at $40 Billion in cuts with policy questions ‘resolved’.

They’re trying to pull again, a “Bart deal”. You don’t “Bart deal” with these Communo-Fascists. Shut down means stopping Vampire-Care installation.

Boehner is going to cave according to Wendell Goler on Greta. They are taking out defunding Planned Parenthood and only cutting $31 billion if I understood correctly what he was saying.

Yup. I was suppose to go there but Chavez scares me. I never heard of Apropos. Is that the island off Colombia?

I hope Mark Levin does not have a stroke. He’s very upset. He’s calling Huckabee (Huchaphony) and now he’s going up and down Karl Rove.

CNN is showcasing Dana Bash and John King (on Anderson Cooper) regarding the government shutdown. Bash and King are married. Isn't that a little strange? Can't CNN employ two non-related employees to cover this story? Seems a wee bit incestuous.

GREAT IDEA!

Speaking of which, I am really terrified about the shutdown tonight. Is it going to shutdown our electricity, water, cable/internet and phone at midnight? Will the grocery stores still sell food? What about the police and firemen? Will this be as bad as the Y2K predictions?

AHHHHH... please negotiate before we all die ...

LOL

Levin was on fire today....I used to not like him because of his angry tone....but the way he goes after RINOs is great. He’ll do what Hannity, Rush, and other hosts won’t do. He names names!!!!! Love it when he goes after Rove and Huckafraud...
