    It's just as much Boehner's and McConnell's as it is Obama's.

    Boehner and McConnell went along with Obamas sequester idea, much to their advantage. Don't blame them for Obama being in way over his head.

    Reid is following the rules as long as Cruz is talking.

    Good evening, Bubba.

    If he actually gets the nomination, it will be a clear signal that the GOP is a permanent rump party. That's what's pissing off all the establishment guys.

    Ted Cruz filibuster: Like with Rand Paul's stand, Republicans raise money off it.
    I still haven't figured out what makes this a fake filibuster?

    Article is here.
    He was waiting for Hannity to start, which was his real audience. Hannity loves Cruz in an unhealthy way.

    Name calling is not a suitable substitute for lack of substance

    Obamacrap is a fail bill. Anyone who supports it, especially with toddler name calling buffoonery, is a clown that nobody should take seriously.

    The database this bill is going to create is not a joke. The assault on our liberties and rights to privacy/property are directly under assault. We know Obama cult clones don't care about any of that. The only thing that motivates them is this utopian delusion that Obama is still some kind of Hope and Change messiah when in reality he's a Chicago thug used car salesmen. He didn't hire 20K more IRS agents to give you A+ customer service. The only type of service the NSA and IRS give is gestapo service. Just ask your fellow Americans who were targeted, intimidated and harassed by direct order of Lois Lerner (who admitted she was purposely targeting the Tea Party on tape).

    Obama is going to hire a massive gang of Lois Lerners to run Obamacare. The one thing I will take some consolation in is knowing that all of you Obama supporters are going to be negatively affected too. I would say the same for Obama's cronies but he gave them an exemption from his wonderful hopey changey touchy feely altruistic HC law! Go figure!
