    The mistake by DEMs was not hammering the GOP for twelve months on this before the 2014 election .
    They tried NIMBY. The problem is the Democrats were doing the same things, and they've also been in charge of 2/3 of the government for the past 4 years, and in charge of all of it for 2 years before that. So, when you look around at the state of the nation, responsibility ultimately falls to them.

    Thats Right Coburn is going to filibuster NDAA and cutting the troops pay, their housing, and their prescription drugs co-pays. Which he should as this was played with and the Demos starting out with a 7% decrease for troops. The Repubs are complicit since they should have fought it.

    Then to top it off the Demos thru in last minute riders for Land Grants. Over 500 pages. NO wonder Harry Reid luvs it.

    I don't care which party it is.....No more throwing things onto a bill that have nothing to do with that bill. Names need to be put out as to who did so. This way the American people can see who is scamming and putting that hand into a cookie jar.

    Maybe the Demos should stop all that lying about how much they are for the troops. They don't even want to give military the same cost of living increase as civilians.

    Yep, good point! .... in the battle between the party of wimps and the party of fools, the wimps screwed themselves by not running away from the work. It did help that the prevailing party enjoyed a brisk prevailing tail wind this time round. That wind reverses in 2016, so the wimps have a shot.

    It's time to get rid of Boehner, as we got rid of Cantor.

    Boehner has proven he's a gutless, useless idiot, and you know he's a gutless, useless idiot when Sociliasts are happy.

    **** him and the party. They were elected to stop the idiot in the White House... instead they joined him.

    It's time to target and gut the useless jerks. If we're going to have this idiocy, if there isn't going to be pushback, then let Demokrats do it. Let them have it. Let them own it.

    These supposed Republicans are doing great damage. It's not leadership, it's cowering.
    The Clintons are what happens...

    The question is whether Boehner can get 218 votes out of his own caucus.
    Especially with all the legislative goodies that go against the so-called GOP stand against the deficit .

    "Nancy Pelosi and progressives arenít ready to support a carefully crafted government funding compromise, throwing the $1.1 trillion bill into doubt one day before a potential shutdown.

    Yea, Reid has done well in bringing all the bills the House has sent up to the floor.

    Good news! We adverted a shut down! The nutty tea party conservatives wont take us down that road again. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    To me this immigration thing is a red herring. If the Democrats want to push immigration, I would advise the Republicans to concentrate on the economy. It is like 2009 and 2010 when Americans elected the Democrats to fix the economy and then they concentrated on healthcare. Letting the Democrats concentrate on immigration and other stuff will in the long run help the Republicans if they concentrate on the economy.

    When asked Which one of the following do you think is most important for the president to work on
    right now? [RANDOMIZE LIST]
    Dec 7-9 2014
    The economy 38%
    Terrorism from groups like ISIS 21%
    Health care 12%
    Immigration 10%
    Race relations 9%
    (Other) 2%
    (All) 7%
    (Donít know) 1%
    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.

    Sorry, I screwed that up. I meant to say the Dems screwed themselves by running away and not defending their work.

    The Cromnibus is now in deep trouble in the House, not to mention the Senate.

    Boehner cant get 218 votes out of his own caucus, an ongoing 4-year problem for him. Boehner is now begging Obama for 50 or so House votes and DEMs are fed up with Obama.

    Sounds like a very short stopgap is coming followed by a 3-4 month CR. At which time Boehner has a far more conservative caucus and DEMs a more liberal one, exacerbating this problem .

    Boehner continues to be impotent, not being able to get 218 votes from his own caucus.

    Obviously that's Reid's fault .
