    On the other hand - you're right too - image is everything to these people.

    I suggest an immediate rework on that image thing! It's not going too well for them, if they hoped to make the Repubs look bad, cause it's kinda backfiring!

    IMHO, they're kicking back at the very Americans their policies are threatening to sink even further.

    Answer...yes.

    They usually have exactly ZERO personnel monitoring these roads and byways. Of course...due to the Bring the Pain campaign, the administration is dedicating 6 times the manpower...because...you know...the shutdown and all...

    Petulant children from the top down. And sadly, there is a steady line of passengers boarding that ship of fools all too eager to justify the administrations stupidity.

    There is a significant difference in kind between a tax cut and an imposition of a government program that will take over health care in our country more so than it already has.

    Sometimes laws get passed that you don't like, sometimes perspectives triumph that you'd rather not see ascendant. If we are going to establish the precedent that the government can be torpedoed whenever the party in opposition doesn't completely get its way than we might as well abandon the notion of Republican government because nothing will get done.
    A Republican government should not reflect a mere majority of the populace but a substantial majority within limits. There is a substantial majority in this country that wants Obama Care to be repealed entirely or modified extensively and if the Democrat strategy is to shut down the government to counter this then so it must be.


    We have ample opportunities to fight off the ACA and we lost every single one of them. This is like cheating at the end zone.
    That is an opinion that is open to interpretation. The Democats when they were in Control of both Houses did everything they could to minimize any dispute or compromise the Republican could offer. Keep in mind that the Republican Leadership was in control by "moderates" who simply could not recognize the Democrats were not going to compromise and still were acting as if that were so.

    So fine. Accept your consequences, but the sane part of our party, movement, whatever you want to call it will blame you when Democrats reclaim the House in November.
    That is yet to be seen. I think that the Republicans need to stick to their convictions and stand their ground and if that means that they loose seats then what the Republican Party stands for can not be held as viable and changes would have to be made on what it will stand for. I think that the fiscally conservative and the idea that big government is not the answer to all our ills and is likely the cause of some of them is a viable alternative to the Democarts belief that the money to pay for government programs will always be able to be paid by the "rich" ,i.e. the middle class, and that government is The Answer to any problem that occurs or can be manufactured.

    Oh. And we will still have the ACA. *facepalm*
    Perhaps, but if the Republicans are successful it will be delayed a year.

    I think they are just blocking those public exhibits off for political means. The administration is hoping that people get pissed off that they can't see these open air exhibits and will complain to their elected officials to cave in to the democrats.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They are. I think it is backfiring already. Only the most committed true believers and retards are buying into the dem rhetoric regarding shutting down the monuments. Democrats and liberals that have maintained the capacity for independent thought may still very well blame the GOP for the shutdown but they certainly see the park and monument shutdowns for what they are...and the see the administration for what it is as well. I dont think it is their finest hour and i think most democrats see that.

    Who's acting like children? The Republicans shut down the government because they didn't get their way in the election.

    Your poll should have one more option: No, it is the Republicans who are acting like children.

    No. It isn't. The people voted for Obama. They know the GOP is holding everything up just because they don't like ObamaCare.

    This ends anytime the Republicans want it to. All they have to do is pass a clean resolution on the budget THEY wanted in the first place. On which the Democrats already negotiated plenty, and do not need to negotiate anything more.
