“As long as no GOP-sponsored bill ever sees the light of day, I'm totally cool with that. And it wont get much better for their shots at the oval office as long as they continue to sway to the right of Goebbels.”
“Of course. The GOP have been working so hard to improve the lives of working Americans despite The President's inabilities.
Or maybe not;
Employee Free Choice Act - filibustered
Paycheck Fairness Act - filibustered
Permanent middle-class Bush tax cut extension - filibustered

American Jobs Act - filibustered
The Buffett rule - filibustered
Teachers & First Responders Back to Work Act - filibustered
Withholding Tax Relief Act - filibustered”

“Results matter. Not empty rhetoric.
You're focusing, for some odd red herring reason, on legislation.
That's the domain of Congress - see Article I of the Constitution - they make the laws.
Focus on the execution and administration of laws already passed.
Things within the scope of the Executive Branch.
Those things that are totally and absolutely within the scope of the President and those that serve at his pleasure.”
“The President cannot submit a budget to the floor of the house. That vote number you cite was the The President's budget based on the GOP's interpretation of it. Surely their fiduciary wizardry should have garnered a few "yea" votes from the GOP controlled House, no?
Normal people are already on to this. Then there's you.”

“that's what happens with those lazy so and so's just repeat stuff instead of researching facts for themselves”

“Obama bowled a 63 when he was on the campaign trail in 2008......that my friend is embarrassing. I have also seen Obama throw out the first pitch on Opening Day of the baseball season.....even more embarrassing (if that is possible). I would be willing to bet my mortgage that O is a horrible golfer......are you in??”
“I wouldn't characterize this as "caving". I would love to see the dems flip Howdy Gowdy the bird and tell the rest of the Hee Haw Party to go pound sand over this tempest in a teapot. Only now, we'll get to see reality-based grownups eat the GOP's lunch.”
“Yet when a bunch of rural rootin' tooin' shootin' fellers squat and graze on federal land at taxpayer expense, any effort on the part on the government to enforce the law is considered tyranny.”

“The protesters on the ranch weren't acting violently and NO, having a gun doesn't make one violent.”

“Exactly how much did the "rootin' tooin' shootin' fellers" charge the taxpayers anyway? I wasn't aware the taxpayers were paying any of their expenses. Please enlighten us.”

“Well that was pretty stupid from the get go. It was all about get the government. They didn't even get who they were supporting.....one of the very type of people they claim to despise. It was pretty pathetic. Now he's taking the state to court again and again refusing to pay for anything. He truly believes it's our taxpayer job to pay for his business expenses.”
