“Imagine that. Chickens that actually come home to roost. Nah. Never happen. Ask the Pentagon. Ask the State Department. Ask the CIA. They will all tell you the same lie. Chickens never return home to roost.”
“Mitch is so befuddled about what he faces in his twenty-two months of re-electioneering that he doesn't know what he is say or why he is saying or if he is saying it or who is saying it. As amusing as it is sad.”
“Regarding the three standoff scenarios, it seems far-fetched to suppose Obama will do anything but fold, and he has most consistently done for more than four years already. Yes, the GOP is showing signs of weakness on the Debt Ceiling, but Obama, remember, does quantum leaps across his own lines in the sand. The same applies to the Gov't Shutdown & the Sequestrations. Obama simply has no spine for the role he keeps rhetorically trying to play.
He proves with every contest he is even more ridiculous than he already proved earlier.
You don't offer a remedy for that. And pleading with him, or cajoling him, or praying for him simply is wasting your attention span. He is disconnected from every reality except his own self-image. In that regard, he is even worse than was his most recent predecessor in office.”

“really, from your dark shaded glasses is how you see things, okay but its just your opionion”
“It is divinely astonishing how insecure God has become in the GOP's circus: 'guns are "essential to living the way God intended." '
He used to give people strength. Now He is so slovenly he needs the violent, legitimate rape talkers, and the hate whomever you don't want to like crowd, that He needs to be propped up and defended from total evaporation by guns and un-governed violence.
On behalf of whom? On behalf of the Big Weapons, Inc, corporations, and their public mouthpiece, the NRA, and their elected servile eunuchs in both parties.”

“If/when some of these folks make it to the pearly gates, they are going to get a big surprise. God is going to hold up his hand and say "you did/said WHAT in my name?"
Then they will be on the express elevator to that hot place, bless their pointy little heads.”
“They are (even if inadvertently) trying to get it through our thick skulls that the only notable difference between them is in their names. Legislation has been reduced to who can dump the most public money into Wall Street's investor class, and a law getting passed is a celebration of whatever that contest delivers when they need to stroke Princess Public Opinion.”
“"The Republicans drew a new district to help Amedore," Sargeant said. "It did not work here because voters don't trust Republicans in New York."
Oh, sure. Sounds more like there are a lot of Democrats who do not trust the Democrats there. Elected ones. In the state Senate.”

“Sounds more like some of the elected democrates are infected withthe sam disease ans the Republicans. The it's all about me screw the group mentality. The shouldn't have run as democrats if they plan on supporting republicans.”
“I don't have a clue what tealand has directly to do with any of it; perhaps you can explain that.
But Obama always stands up to whomever opposes him, until he caves. And he almost always caves. And the GOP knows that about him, but he doesn't know it about himself. And neither to his true believer followers know it either.”
“It means that like Obama, Harry Reid is hiding what he really wants behind the GOP & the right wing Democrats like Diane Feinstein and Chuck Schumer and Jon Tester and Max Baucus and Mary Landrieu and the one from AK.”
“They used to be good at pretending to be courageous, and now they have stopped even trying. So they are on the same path that got the GOP to where it now is. This may be the best political news we will get for a while.”
“Here we go again. Harry Reid caving to Republicans when there is plenty of support to actually require any senator who 'filibusters' to actually filibuster, instead of go off on vacation and leaving the US Senate stalled in his wake!
Get real, Harry! The GOP is playing for keeps, and you are playing footsies!
Wimps of a feather party together.”

“Did you really expect the Dems to stand for anything? This is what they do and why they lost to the GOP in 2010. simply cannot show courage.”

“Gee.....all that support, and yet, he backs down.....what could that mean....what could that mean?”
“Well how would you describe his walking? Would you say that's just how people walk in New Jersey?”

“It's a good description for the way he walks. So, maybe the author should have done a comparison piece on the walking habits of American governors throughout our history as a nation. That has the potential of being quite humorous. ”
“Art follows politics, Mr. Christie. To hit the art is to self-destruct. Try instead hitting the reflection you see when you look into the mirror.
See what happens? Only the reflection is removed. To suppress societal reflections in any way is to incubate trouble far bigger. The human spirit will not simply cow to bullies.
Try doing something that is not just GOP show business. Try being a genuine classical republican. Read Herbert Storing's brilliant summary of what the republicans wanted during the US revolution. It was classic republican politics and government. None of this glib show business or bullying. Graceful and charming and powerful because it speaks to every one of us, not just the bullies.”
“Solid voice for the GOP: ignorance beats education any day of the week. But don't tell them that a little education goes a long way, because they might get some serious ideas. As things are now, we can welcome their dethronement from the bipartisan hack parade now controlling our national government any day now. Their collapse will make room for some other party to give that stage a try.”
