'Chaos'? Obama goes after 'extreme' Republicans

WASHINGTON (AP) — A potential federal shutdown looming, President Barack Obama on Monday warned congressional Republicans they could trigger national "economic chaos" if they demand a delay of his health care law as the price for supporting continued spending for federal operations.

House Republican leaders were to meet Tuesday in hopes of finding a formula that would avoid a shutdown on Oct. 1 without alienating party conservatives who insist on votes to undercut the Affordable Care Act. Even more daunting is a mid- to late-October deadline for raising the nation's borrowing limit, which some Republicans also want to use as leverage against the Obama administration.

"Are some of these folks really so beholden to one extreme wing of their party that they're willing to tank the entire economy just because they can't get their way on this issue?" Obama said in a speech at the White House. "Are they really willing to hurt people just to score political points?"

There will be economic armageddon if ObamaCare is not blocked.

Clown Prince President nobama needs to be “Putin-ed” by congress and the American people. Is it possible that nobama, the mentally-ill one, could be more feckless and limp?

The ballot box ain't enough folks. I'm telling ya, the Stupid Party is going to cave, conservatives in primaries will get crushed by the GOP establishment and Dems crossing over, and Obamacare's tentacles will be fully wrapped around the nation.

You have to remember that Oct and Nov is the annual enrollment for next year's health care plans. Think of all the workers (what's left of them, anyway) who will see their premiums skyrocket, their coverage shrink, or will get pushed off the employer's plan into one of the phony exchanges.

If the Republicans cave, there will be a 3rd party and there may be another Lexington/Concord moment. I'm just saying.

The government only shuts down if the Zero King refuses to sign the bill the Congress sends him.

He wants division, but he’s creating a hate-filled division. Such politics has terrible results.

Just remember, he wanted it.

He is a finger pointing piece of chit. The republicans should pass a bill that forces all members of congress and the president into the obamacare mess. That should be the first thing they demand before any negotiations.

I hope all of you are writing your representatives because they are so afraid of rocking the boat.

GOP will capitulate and put yet another nail (and possibly the final nail) into the GOP Coffin as the Tea Party continues to emerge.

Obama is doing everything he can to get a shutdown, and the dummy Republicans are afraid to call him on it, and let the American people know who really wants it.

If the government shuts down, the only “economic chaos” will be the unions not receiving dues from furloughed Federal employees. And what’s so bad about that?

first time I saw the headline I imagined him looking at images of the million bikers in DC. He knows there are many, many more conservatives and even middle of the road Americans who are against his destructive policies. Everything he says about us, is really about HIM. Every negative about us is exactly what he is doing.

The GOP has the house majority because of the campaign “DEFUND OBAMACARE”. That was 3 years ago and they’re still trying figure out how to fund it without appearing to fund it.

This bubble is going to pop; sooner, not later. Better to let it pop right now than to put another BandAid on it and hope it holds.

Pass the CR, or better yet a budget balanced to 2007 revenue levels, and specifically exclude 0bamacare from any funding.
Hand it over to the Senate at a major presser, and let the country know that a government shutdown is ON THE DHIMMICRAPS, not the pubbies.
When the debt ceiling comes up, don’t touch it. Leave it alone. Let happen what is going to happen at some point anyway.

Do the pubbies have the stones for this fight? I’m not at all sure they do.

This is Obama’s act: He stands before his teleprompter,like a high priest before a sacred altar, and condemns the forces of darkness. He is angry, disdainful, impatient, very impatient with these damn Republican obstructionists. In his purity, he stands ready to sacrifice himself, immolate himself, Phoenix like, in flames of righteous indignation. These Republicans refuse to comply with divine truth. They know the truth, but reject the truth, and therefore are double heretics. And he rants on for a while, then he leaves his teleprompter, goes somewhere private, and snickers.

Obama doesn’t “go after” anyone, he just pops off snide remarks to amaze his media pets.
