“Extending the deadline past the election is of no benefit to the voters back home as a show of concern. That assumption makes no sense at all. The only thing it would show is their concern for being reelected.”
“It seems that you know more about the inner workings of Obama's mind than Obama himself. Did Bush-Cheney give any consideration to putting American lives in harms way when they invaded Iraq under false pretenses? Thousands of Americans lives lost. Tens of thousands maimed and disabled. And hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis. The very personality disorder you falsely ascribe to Obama is heavily vested in that fellow in the picture above--the defacto President of the United States during the Bush years.”
“Bin Laden capture--success. Obama deserves no credit! Libya Delta Force mission--success. Obama deserves no credit. Kenya seal team mission--failure. Obama deserves all the blame. I think I am beginning to see a pattern in your line of reasoning.”

“OBL was not captured, just killed.
You are not even starting to see the beginnings of a pattern. Everything you cite as Obama's success was an attempt to garner success. Putting American lives in harm's way was not even a consideration for him --as long as he can have some publicity accrue to him as a result.”
“Yes, the discussion was elevated and the spotlight was focused brightly on Ted Cruz dictatorial lunacy. He is like a nuclear waste containment vessel. Nothing goes in. When he opens his mouth, radioactive toxic waste spews out.”
“If this is the level of intellect at the top of the Tea Party food chain, just think what slugs must be lurking at the bottom of the barrel.”

“"When I meet with world leaders, what's striking -- whether it's in Europe or here in Asia..." -mistakenly referring to Hawaii as Asia while holding a press conference outside Honolulu, Nov. 16, 2011 Said Obama to the whole world”
“I am not a fan of Mitch McConnell, but bravo to him. He had to put himself out there and to put his political career at risk to get this done. As a cost of doing "business", he has delivered something tangible to his constutuency, to his state and the people who elected him to office.
Contrast that to the state of Texas (my state), Ted Cruz has done nothing except gum up the works. He has succeeded in alienating himself from members of his own party as well as the opposition party. He has brought a lot of attention to himself, but he has delivered nothing tangible to the state of Texas and to the people who elected him to Congress. And he has positioned himself not to be able to do so for the remainder of his term in office. The great state of Texas, for all intents and pruposes, has only one Senator (John Cornyn, a lightweight in terms of ability and influence) even remotely capable of delivering anything to the people of Texas.
Whether one likes it or not, this is how things get done in Washington, D.C.. While the people from states not on the receiving end of the earmarks, pork, or whatever you want to call them cry and moan about the fairness of it all, the citizens of the state receiving these benefits are not complaining. And they reward their representatives who deliver the pork on election day.”
“The President's refusal to write hot checks because Congress failed to do it's job is an impeachable offense? The district that elected this bozo to Congress should not be allowed to secede. They should be forced out of the union and placed in quarantine, for the good of the nation and the world at large.”
“What you saw was Rand manipulate and puff up a perceived weak link in the chain, Minority leader McConnell. Mitch McConnell knows that they are doomed. It is futile to apply the brakes after you have already driven off the cliff. I am not sure if Rand has the intellect to grasp that concept. His "we can win this thing" proves that he lives in fairyland.”
“Had she been banned from talking PERIOD, they may have fared better during the election. Every time she opened mouth, it was a disaster for he campaign. "What news papers and magazines do you read Sarah?" "Uh. Uh. All of um. Any of um." I rest my case.”
