    Is the GOP really the other side?

    I thought he was the President for everyone?

    At this point Obama should be doing what is right for the country and not what is right for his party, or trying to destroy the Republican party.

    Not only that, I'll head for your websites and start going after the House races, especially when these Neugebrauers criticize uniformed female National Park rangers, just doing their job. I've been begging Dem groups to have a convention next summer, especially in St. Louis, so as to not repeat 2010.

    After all the stuff Repubs and their Limbaugh leaders have shoved at Obama, now you want to talk.
    You guys should have thought about that the last 45 months of private sector job growth, which is now in peril with this shutdown.
    You think Dems want to hurt that? It's about time Dems got a spine.

    I think before this government shutdown shenanigans over the ACA, 2014 had the potential of switching the senate back to GOP control. A long shot for sure, but a creditable chance. Everything would have had to go right and no more Aikens or Mourdocks. I was checking the party affiliation site, the Republicans are down to 22%. a drop of 8 points since November of 2012. The Democrats are at 31%, down from 35% from November of 2012, they too lost members. Independents are the big gainer here as it seems most Americans are becoming fed up with each party. I probably said this yesterday, but I think most Americans outside the party faithful now view the Democrats as the least worst party or the lesser of two evils. neither is liked all that much anymore.

    That in a way makes me very happy.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    What would really make me happy would be to energize "every" citizen eligible to vote.
    Sorry for the nonpartisanship my fellow Dems expect.
    It is up to posters and bloggers like you to excite the electorate on "every" race.

    As the man who stepped off the roof of a twenty story building, around the tenth floor he was heard to say, "So far, So good. Just for the heck of it, I went back to the 1996 election after the last government shut down to see the effect it had there. In a year in which Clinton beat the pants off of Dole, the Republicans lost 4 seats in the House and gained 3 senate seats. That was a year when the shutdown was totally blamed on congressional republicans.

    The shutdown didn't mean a thing when election time came around. Perhaps we or I am over blowing this whole situation. Especially if today's poll is to be believed 25% blame Republican congress, 24% Obama and 20% everybody.

    I believe the mid-term census remaps, which crushed the Demnads in 2010, also did them in in the 1990's.
    Remember when Texas sent the State Police after their legislative Democrats? That was the remap from Texas that got the AG on their case.

    Good evening, Pero.

    There was an interesting article on Yahoo today :Jack Lew's dilemma: Which bills to pay and when IF Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling by October 17. Add that to the shutdown, and it makes me wonder more and more why we can't seem to avoid lurching from one crisis to another, and I include all of DC in this, on both sides of the aisle! The world is watching! :

    Yeah, that seems like it was so long ago.

    I do not know what the official reason is or what all the political pundits say about it. I believe it is party over country. Each party is trying to use every little or big situation to enhance their power or seats or office holders. The House does things and passes things that they know the senate will never approve and the senate tables most things from the house in order to avoid a vote that would rouse up some constituents to vote against its incumbents. Give and take has become a thing of the past. It is said politics is the art of the possible, but both sides want the impossible.

    One could say the republicans hold a mighty big grudge against the democrats for the the election of Obama and the democrats hold a mighty big grudge for the republicans taking back the house. If these were the early 1800's there would have been a bunch of duels by now.
