President Obama’s Oct. 8 news conference on the federal shutdown and debt limit (what a putz)
Washington Post ^ | Octobe 8, 2013 | Barack Obama

................And I've continued to believe that Citizens United contributed to some of the problems we're having in Washington right now. You know, you have some ideological extremist who has a big bankroll, and they can entirely skew our politics.

And there are a whole bunch of members of Congress right now who privately will tell you, I know our positions are unreasonable, but we're scared that if we don't go along with the tea party agenda, or the -- some particularly extremist agenda, that we'll be challenged from the right. And the threats are very explicit. And so they toe the line. And that's part of why we've seen a breakdown of just normal routine business done here in Washington on behalf of the American people.

And all of you know it. I mean, I'm not telling you anything you don't know because it's very explicit. You report on it. A big chunk of the Republican Party right now is -- are in gerrymandered districts where there's no competition and those folks are much more worried about a tea party challenger than they are about a general election where they've got to complete against a Democrat or go after independent votes. And in that environment, it's a lot harder for them to compromise.......

As I stated on another thread, this incompetent moronic socialist is a walking, rotting corpse!

Hairy and Nutsy are to be held blameless as they’re zombies.

Are there any accurate articles that explain what will realistically what will happen if we miss the debt ceiling and end up going into “default” so to speak? Most sources I have tried to find are naturally flooded with hardleftist, pure chicken little hysteria. Is there any place where we can find truly accurate, unbiased, undistorted info in it? Has someone who is not hopelessly biased towards Obama written about it?

Typical elitist. Who cares what the people think. We know better! All we need is their votes. Then they should shut up!

"...and I, and I, and I think the Republicans have been brainwashed by the Tea Party and then, and then, and then they take it out on all of us--especially, especially, especially me, but, but, but also all of you. And, and, and they are usurping the law, common sense, and just plain decency by pushing America into the stone ages by effectively setting off all the nuclear bombs we have in our arsenal. And, and, and...."

Freakin' idiotic arguments coming from a supposedly "adult" male which suspiciously sound like they were stated by a 3 year-old.

I am dumbfounded that so many idiots were capable of driving themselves to the voting booth, reading the ballot and selecting 0bama. The odds of that happening must be equal to the odds that monkeys, randomly playing with typewriters, would eventually print all of Shakespeare's works, if given an infinite amount of time.

Freakin' amazing.
