Wanna drown?

Just keep letting the other guy continue to push your head under water until you give up, not out of pain but, an inability to fight on and end someone’s aggression against you.

This will all be explained away by certain irrelevancies about being “smart and strategic”.

Disgusting.

Make Bammy put back all his waivers and exemptions and make sure they go in effect January 1.

You’ll see a tidal wave GOP win after 11 months of original recipe Bammycare. Delaying it a year means nobody get to feel the pain prior to the election.

It’s time America gets the goobermint they voted for. Instead , the morons in the GOP will save Democrats from themselves.

The article lost me on the first sentence.

Not raising the debt ceiling does not equal default.

Even with the Dems wanting default the next interest payment isn’t due until 15 Nov. and IT WOULD BE PAID WITH TREASURY RECEIPTS, no action by politicians required.

Equating not going into more debt to = defaulting on debt IS A HUGE PROPAGANDA WIN FOR DEMS.

The only ‘default’ is the GOP leadership’s inability to have a spine. Polls and public opinion rule the land even if it means choosing to do the wrong thing because the public cannot think for themselves.

I think your humiliating defeat of having to drop out as “environmental advisor” to president zero due to your association with communists and your zeal for the communist line was wonderful. I guess you didn’t want them digging deeper into your commie affairs, eh, dude?

Humiliating? Cruz is still on the job, sucker, and you aren’t.

Politicians have just played their usual game of “kick the can down the road” and Cruz will still be harassing obama and Valerie for the rest of their term.

I just wish Cruz would do one thing. Demand an apology from Reid or slow it down.

If the Tea Party in congress doesn’t get rid of boner, they now fall into the “worthless” category.

Van Jones is greatly mistaken. The Marxocrats may have won this skirmish but the war is far from over. Ted Cruz has shown the way to fight in the future, identified those on our 'side' who must be primaried out of Congress and educated the American people on the disaster that is 0bamacare. These will all bear great fruit in the future.

'Tis better to have tried in vain, Sincerely striving for a goal, Than to have lived upon the plain An idle and a timid soul.

'Tis better to have fought and spent
Your courage, missing all applause,
Than to have lived in smug content
And never ventured for a cause.

For those who try and fail may be
The founders of a better day;
Though never theirs the victory,
From them shall others learn the way.
... Edgar Guest

I will tell you the single biggest surprise in arriving to the Senate is the defeatist attitude here. I mean, we don't even talk about how to win a fight. There's no discussion. We talk about, "Hey, let's get a show vote so we can go tell our constituents we're doing something." But I promise you, Rush, if you had to sit through one Senate lunch, you'd be in therapy for a month ... but they've been here a long time, and they're beaten down, and they don't believe we can win. They don't believe it can happen, and the answer they say on every issue is, "No, we can't do it. We can't do it."

This is the dawn of a new day, with new leadership coming to the GOP in 2014. Imagine Senate Majority Leader Cruz being sworn in January, 2015.

I am a little confused here, and I think that is the plan to confuse people like me.

First of all this is CNN reporting which means it can’t be trusted. But I have more than just a mistrust and more than just a mind for conspiracy.

http://money.cnn.com/2013/10/16/investing/stocks-markets/

The above is a link that just 15 minutes ago was listed on Google Finance but no longer appears.

In that link CNN is touting an end to the shutdown and debt ceiling deal. But here are the key words:

“House lawmakers have not yet decided on when to vote on the Senate bill, according to a spokesperson for majority leader John Boehner.”

So I have the sense that CNN is propagandizing and trying to ‘shape’ views, opinions and project conclusions.

I blame us. Cruz put his reputation and all his future potential to join the good ole boy fraternity on the line. We should have been at least a million strong storming DC to support him. Screw that “conservatives have jobs” meme. Fewer and fewer people of any stripe have jobs, and even fewer are going to have jobs which will support them and their families in any meaningful way. Those vets in wheelchairs and missing legs and arms had jobs too, but they were there in DC. I blame myself. It’s great to be a keyboard warrior, send a few bucks here or there, and consider yourself to have made a real contribution and be “down for the cause”.

The men in Valley Forge left bloody footprints in the snow.

We talk about being “locked and loaded”. Most people these days are so isolated in spite of our great so-called “connectivity” in the “virtual universe”. We are atomised, and that works for the ones dividing and conquering. Paul Revere got his azz on a horse and rode for miles, calling real live humans to action,

Tribulation is coming. May God have mercy on us, because the justice we deserve is too horrible to contemplate.

For all you who are offended, I put myself at the top of the list of those who should’ve been there.

Hell, Boehner, McConnell, McLame, et al. won't make Bammy even abide by The Constitution, so they're not going to make him do anything. Besides, Boehner doesn't want to miss happy hour.

Boehner will not put the deal up for a vote unless a majority of Republicans support it because he knows he will be ousted as speaker if he does.

Don’t be fooled. Van Jones is still heavily involved as an adviser to Obama behind the scenes.

ACORN is Back!
Matthew Vadum

“Other ACORN officials haven’t allowed ACORN’s 2010 bankruptcy filing to get in the way of lobbying the Obama White House and the Justice Department run by future federal inmate Eric Holder. Lawyer Estelle H. Rogers, director of advocacy at ACORN-affiliated Project Vote, has met with a senior aide to Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett and with Van Jones’s former chief of staff.”

I wonder how Mitch feels today, knowing that he has been forced out of his closet? Cruz lost a battle, but he has unmasked many “conservatives.” Down here in Texas John Cornyn is running adds like crazy trying to prove to many who know better that he is a conservative. And it is not about just strategy. It is about goals. We know now that many Republicans like the lady senator from New Hampshire does not have repeal of ACA as a goal. The same is true about the other moderates in the senate. What they said in 2012 was just empty talk. What they say about 2014 is just empty talk. What they will say about 2016 will be just empty talk. “Give us the Senate, they say, and we will act. Give us all three branches, they say, and we will act.” We don’t have the votes, they say. But they never will have enough. Their refusal to offer alternatives to Obamacare means they do not have a plan, and they have no plan because they do not intend to overturn it.

Naturally, Jones saw things differently, commending President Obama for refusing to “negotiate with a party that has been hijacked by its far right-wing.” He added, “The president stood up to the bullying. I’m proud of the president today. I’m proud Harry Reid today. I’m proud of McConnell today. I’m proud of Amy Klobuchar. I think Ted Cruz should be ashamed of himself.”

For the first time in his life, this nigga {it's OK if you use "a" instead of "er", 'cause everyone knows that nigga is just another word for man} is proud to be a communist living in America.

On the other hand, we have the glaring incompetence - that represents this entire administration - with the highly-touted zerocare rollout.

If you’re looking for utter and complete humiliation, that’s where you’ll find it.

Cruz’s humiliating defeat!?! Hardly.

This was never about winning and losing Van, but resistance. The die was cast by virtue of the numbers. But in my book Mr. Cruz and Lee (and others) did all they could. The fought the good fight and that was all I could expect. The rest of the Republican party did what I expected them to do as well, cave in fear.

The real loser today is the Carl Rove wing of the party. A wing that stands ready to fight until, of course, a fight breaks out. The Rove wing is held hostage inside the Beltway and fed only the siren song of the Beltway media. Puppets on a string shrinking in fear of dissaproval from a media that hates them. Earth to Rove Wing, you will find a hot reception when you come down from the Olympus Beltway. Good luck winning elections without the base.
