    Not to beat a dead horse, but IMHO Cantor has put Boehner in a no-win situation.
    If there is two people in Washington that belong in the unemployment lines, as I have numerous times over and over again, it is Reid and McConnell. If I had my wish come true, Reid would have lost last year, if he did we probably would be here in shutdown mode and McConnell to lose next year. Cook has McConnell as a tossup, Sabato Lean GOP.

    I also agree that Alexander would make an excellent Republican Leader in the Senate. Seeing all this happen, makes me long for the days of George Mitchell and Bob Dole when they were the leaders in the senate. If McConnell and Reid can work this out, I will give each a hand salute, but it won't change the fact that i think those two have more to do with Washington not working than any other person in Washington D.C.
    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.

    even if Reid and McConnell can make the deal work in the senate, it would be up to the house to follow through after the senate did its part.

    I know. It was the house that started this needless crap.

    What did you expect it to do when the majority ran on platforms opposing spending and the ACA? Maybe if the President hadn't made so many unilateral changes to the law, there would have been more focus on the spending aspect...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Latest AR Senate poll: Pryor 42 Cotton 41. I don't think this is good news for Pryor, Cotton is a congressman and certainly doesn't have the name recognition of Pryor. Apparently the shutdown where the GOP is getting almost all the blame seems not to have help Pryor either. If nothing else this poll re-enforces my decision to have Arkansas a GOP pick up for my 1 Nov update. I am also leaning to keep MT a Dem Hold although I would be disagreeing with both Cook and Sabato.

    i don't think it is wise to count out pryor yet, just saying.

    but cotton is the exception to the rule at this point. in other senate races where a GOP congressman is running to try to unseat a incumbent senator, the congressman have to deal with the shutdown and the dysfunction in congress
