    Oh I never think any election is a cake walk. OMG no. It takes every able person that believes in the cause of liberty and Constitutional first principles that is willing to give of time and money. As the Founders once put it "our lives, our fortunes and sacred honor". With all my heart I want liberty to be the victor for my children and grandchildren and I will fight with everything I have to make sure that is the result.

    How about adhering to the principles of the 2011 debt ceiling deal? You continue to believe what you are told and ignore history. Why is that? You want a debt ceiling increase, then support spending cuts.

    Debt when the 2011 debt ceiling deal was agreed to was 14.7, it is 16.7 trillion today. Where are the promised cuts outside the sequester? Wasn't the debt ceiling increase not to increase the debt?

    Its not a matter of opinion. It's an absolute fact that I have never reported you.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You're right.

    The Libs, even if they "win" this have nothing left to fall back on.

    I meam how many times can you listen to someone tell you " the econonic recovery is right around the corner" before you finnaly chalk up their rhetoric to the ravings of a meth addict high on paint thinner and Peyote ?

    I think the Website is "down" for a damn good reason.

    The Democrats don't exactly want everyone to know just how much they've gotten screwed by the most "compassionate " political party in the whole Universe.

    Not yet anyway. I expect after the mid terms it will be up running like a well oiled machine.....built by liars and crack head ideologist.

    Well as well as a machine could run that was built by liars and glue heads
    That's an interesting take on this, and it wouldn't surprise me if they did make it difficult on purpose right now. I've seen some facebook posts with people not happy because it wasn't what they expected. This mousy tippy toe admin that panics after any kind of criticism always trying to stick to their retarded script is entertaining at least.

    Another liberal posting what he/she is told by the liberal elite for you see return on investment is a foreign term to people like you. Still trying to locate that Clinton surplus and wonder why that so called surplus didn't reduce the national debt? Hmmm, you really need to do some research as it would help your credibility.

    Republicans Lose Ground vs. Obama in the Shutdown Blame Game - ABC News

    At this point I'm pretty puzzled. You really have to question the logic behind the GOP's behavior. They're taking damage all for nothing. What could they possibly get out of this? The only positive I see so far is they have riled up their ever shrinking base of extremists, everyone else is shaking their head. Obama can't negotiate anything or else he'd be legitimizing the GOP's hostage tactics, it would be a terrible blunder.

    The only possible outcome I see is for Boehner to throw in the towel and for the GOP to walk away in shame. Should be interesting to see how this plays out. I fear something nasty and unexpected is going to happen.
    Hmm, gee, why ever would they embark on something that is potentially politically damaging to themselves?

    Why, I wonder?

    Re: Republicans Lose Ground vs. Obama in the Shutdown Blame Game

    The elections are far enough away that the shutdown will be forgotten in the heartland. Most people aren't affected by the shutdown except by the pettiness coming from the Spite House. Inside the Beltway it's big news because lots of government blood suckers live there. In the heartland people hear about Park service workers shutting veterans in wheel chairs out of war memorials or local park workers shutting down parks or taking handles off water fountains. Obama has shown himself to be petty, small minded, vindictive and closed minded. These will be the lasting memories of he shutdown, not the lay off of non essential workers in Washington.

    As a bonus question, why do non essential workers exist in government?
