    I don't know if Obama wants a federal government shutdown, but I want a federal government shutdown, permanently.

    This is a fun platitude, but meaningless in this current discussion.

    I'm hearing he only has one more of these to stay Speaker.
    Btw, why do House Repubs like to wreck the Christmas economy, this being the third in a row?
    Actually the ACA will go into effect, and the Repubs will be able to campaign that they tried to stop its implementation but the President was willing to shut down government to keep it...

    Obama's role is to disrupt the progress of the United States and to create as much social order breakdown as possible. Obama has so much hatred for this county and the historical American culture that anything resulting in dissention, confusion and ultimately great harm is viewed as a positive.

    Political maneuvering as we have seen with past differences between presidents and congress is always subordinated to Obama's personal agenda of hatred and destruction, coupled with angering traditionalists and white people in general.

    That is why there seems to be so little consistency and reason in his actions both here and worldwide.
    I can't tell if this is a shining example of Poe's Law or a post that's intended to be serious.

    The "Obama hates America" meme is one of the stupidest the right wing has pulled from its collective ass. I don't even particularly like Obama, but sometimes I just have to point out how ridiculous some of the stuff you guys claim about him truly is.

    You really don't buy into that meme do you AP?
    I know you're giddy over the Tide and all.

    They cannot stop it, and it is a virtual train wreck, so yes, the strategy would probably work...

    Exactly, Paul. Exactly.
    I've posted something similar.
    And if they can actually get a Senate vote, the Senators up in 2014 will have to defend their vote.

    I think it's going to be pushed as a mere majority vote to strip the amendment so it will still serve it's purpose ... maybe even better as a majority vote.
    How're things, Paul?
