Unfortunately, it’s the best that could be expected given the current makeup of Congress. But they held on for 16 days before they caved. And the Rats showed themselves vindictive by Barrycading open air monuments, preventing priests from saying mass for the Armed Forces, etc. Though not widely reported on the MSM, the social media reported enough to get any reasonably informed person information on what was happening. Of course the low-information voter still had no idea if he/she just listened to the afternoon soaps and gossip interview shows.
He who pays calls the tune. The House controls the money. The Repubs control the House.
The surrender monkeys put on a little show to shore up their standing with Conservatives. Anyone that falls for it is an effn idiot.
These are magnificent points! I new there was a silver lining. Now we are going to win the 2014 elections for sure. 2016 is a shoe-in and then we'll control all of Congress and the Executive Branch! Then we'll be able to make real changes in this country. We'll do away with Obamacare (which will be the only health insurance available and leave all without coverage) altogether. We'll SHRINK this overbearing and bloated government starting in 2016! We'll cut the EPA, HHS, etc. and re-build our military. Thanks to Obama shutting down our memorials, our nation will be saved! Thank you, Obama! Thank you!!!!
Really? That’s the BEST they could do?
Right out of the box he’s using Dem/MSM talking-points. THAT’s the ‘best that could be expected’? The GOPe vilified Cruz/Lee, and Boehner couldn’t raise an objection? How about the poor old Constitution or the economic enslavement of our posterity?
Where the HELL was Boehner/McConnell EVERY DAY of this ‘shutdown’ HAMMERING point after point after point? NO WHERE.
Don’t piss on my leg...rain...you get the picture. If a (L) like me can be this f* pissed-off, I don’t see how ANY (C) can give such a flippant remark.
B$. It is exactly what most of us expected, but hardly the best that could be expected. Every Conservative that fought the good fight should switch to the democratic party, let the GOPe try and rule from the minority position. They could then have a new leadership vote, would be interesting for sure.
