    It's really more of a Republican shakedown than shutdown.

    NOV 2014 is coming and bringing hell with it. We have seen what extremism does to a country. The essence of the tea party was shown standing at the gates of the white house waving their treasonous loser flag.
    ASK yourselves America; do we really want our country lead by these people or anyone associated with them?

    I didn't think so. They think they cried Nov 12...

  3. What's in that tea anyway?

    And this excuse for a pretend congress critter is what the represents the GOP/Tea circus? Please...He looks dizzy everytime he needs to answer a reasonable question with a faux and fools talking point. My goodness folks...people you say brown people from Mexico are little more than drug pack mules with cantalopes for calves...And this is what represents our federal gov't. We are in huge trouble...we've got idiots in the GOP controlled house. No doubt about it.

    Republicans are already down 22 points on the shutdown. The NBC-Wall Street Journal Poll showed that Americans blamed Republicans for the shutdown by a 22-percentage-point margin (53% to 31%). Just wait until there is a government default.

    Republicans, whether you realize it or not, your bargaining chip expires in one day. If there is a default, what leverage do you have left?

    The fool's errand was re-electing Obama. That was simply public mass suicide.

    Rep. Steve King is Michele Bachmann without hair and just as crazy loony tunes !

    The Speaker could put a clean spending bill on the floor for a vote and it would pass , but he wont , why ?

    Also the 20 billion cost do to the government shut down is more like 60 billion . In the end it will cost 30 to shut it down and 30 to start it back up . I'm sure the GOP is using Joe The Plumber as there economist , they will say it's only10 billion .
