    PolitiFact Lie of the Year is true

    Just one example of many. Even Huffpo reported a different Politifact "Lie of the Year" that turned out to be true.

    Politifact Has Decided That A Totally True Thing Is The "Lie Of The Year," For Some Reason

    Even Paul Krugman says Politfact are buffoons

    http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/201...seid=auto&_r=0

    Their left wing bias and buffonery is well documented. Only people who want to be lied to still rely on Politi"fact" for actual facts
    From Politifact link:

    Says Barack Obama "sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China" at the cost of American jobs.
    If that's a lie, then how much did Obama get for Chrysler, having sold it to the Italians? How did he manage to sell what wasn't his? You'd think that such a sale of someone else's property would be the scandal of the year.
    "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud... [he's] playing the American public for suckers." Mitt Romney

    That's the rules, he gets to 12:00 noon tomorrow, not until he can't stand anymore?

    'Ya know, when Mitch McConnell, and even the Wall Street Journal, trashes Cruz, then you know him for the extremist he really is. Here is a clip of other Republicans trashing Cruz. Enjoy!!



    Look at the end of the Clip. Even Bill O'Reilly is trashing Cruz. LOL.

The Else was draconian cuts that would be so painful, so abhorrent (a poison) to each side that the 12 would get the job done. It banked on the rationality of the players that they would get the job done or both lose. The calculation error was banking on the rationality of the players. No one factored in that the tea-baggers would actually think the poison-laced kool-aid was a sweet thrist-quencher.

    NO ONE in their right mind * actually thought that the team would opt for the poison.

    Then the sequestration cuts happened and no one felt the pain (until planes were delayed, and they suddenly there was money)... but the whole idea of rapid implementation of deep cuts is a kin to an airline cutting its maintenance department to save money.... in the short-run, it works great.....

    You post some coverage from MSMBC and call that legitamate? Seriously? And you call yourself a conservative? Seriously?

    And every last one of those coming out against Cruz are from left to center jurisdictions. Hell ,O'reilly isn't even a Republican for crying out loud.

    Go ahead and mock him. He has more balls than you or any of those who continue to support the failing policies and insist on reforming them within the same.

    Yet you are the biggest yahoos that will complain the loudest when your tactics go nowhere because you prove yourselves to be no better than your opposition. You stand for nothing and fall for anything.

    I guess you didn't see the whole clip before you started calling people names, did you? There was some CNN on there, and yes, at the end, there is that Liberal bastion, FOX News, trashing Cruz.

    Give it a rest, and try to come up with something original, for a change.

    I think he can do some procedural stuff that can delay it til the weekend, but if he does that, he really puts the House in a bind to get the bill passed.

    So if he goes past noon tomorrow, he's actively screwing his own party, instead of just looking like an idiot.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Oh Montecresto, he could stand a lot longer but "Senate rules" won't allow him. He is getting a lot of heat from the Republicans who have lost their way. But thank goodness there are still those who are willing to stand up for what is just, right, and constitutional. And like always that comes with a price. No different when the Founders bucked the system. All of them they either lost their wealth/livelihood and sometimes their lives/ their children's lives to stand up to the principles in which they strongly held. I have often heard for the most part there are air-heads and assholes that pretty much create what we have to abide to. And there doesn't seem to be a shortage of air-heads or assholes in the Republican party.

    The knock-down, dragged-out, no holds barred filibuster the we were promised turned out to be a pansy-assed 1-hour quip that quickly fell victim to Godwin's Law.

    So, when I heard the bell, it wasn't an angel earning its wings, but Ted Cruz earning his nose

    It appears that Ted Cruz stock fell faster today than Enron's during a Ken Lay motivation speech..... Ted Cruz is rapidly become as irrelevant as Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman or Rick Perry,
