Political Circus: The joke's on us

Washington (CNN)—Come on House Speaker John Boehner.

We know you’re miffed about Obamacare’s latest extension...

But the administration would never joke about the law…

Make 'em squeal
U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst of Iowa says she is especially equipped to trim Washington pork.

Speaking of job skills, potential New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown offered a modest endorsement of his bid to represent the Granite State.
‘‘Do I have the best credentials? Probably not. ‘Cause, you know, whatever. But I have long and strong ties to this state,’’ Brown told The Associated Press. ‘‘People know.’’
Au contraire mon frère! Your Twitter feed reveals a man with mad skills.
Here Brown is tending a tiny tot

And tending bar … thankfully without that tot.

And tending cattle

Say three Hail Marys
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a longtime critic of the intelligence community’s snooping practices, had a suggestion for President Barack Obama on what he should say to Pope Francis during their meeting at the Vatican.

Going 'Fargo' on Obamacare
Will Brooke, a congressional candidate in Alabama, offers this parting shot on dismantling Obamacare.

    Well hello there DMFO,

    "Don't go ad hominum on Tampa Tim tom l.
    They are having a pretty good exchange, no need for you to cloud it with a personal and unnecessary comment."
    I hope you're having a great Friday and have been well. So there is never a "good exchange" with Tampa. It's always worthless, mindless drivel. For the record, I don't think that about you nor anyone else here. I am calling it as I see it. I bet in the back of your mind you might be thinking I'm right. You have kids. You know what it's like when one of them throws out a comment trying to pin something on someone else when they are the guilty party. Why would he throw out the "paid poster" comment. Did you ever think that Fair or smith or even just sayin was a paid poster? Of course you didn't. Because you're not one. But if you ARE one, it's in your mind.

    If you really want a good laugh, check out the two ACA stories in CNN Money. The comments sections are just filled with people whose heads are exploding at any advance the ACA makes because they just hate the President. Remember to go vote in the midterms!
    As it gets harder to criticize the ACA, you will start seeing all manner of conspiracy theory: dictator take overs, Benghazi, Illuminati, Area 51, Vince Foster, etc.

    "not to bright" The word that you were looking for was "too"'s kind of ironic that you didn't appear to know that.....


    Yeah, since you can't attack the message, attack the messenger for a typo, which most likely was just a strike error. You knew that, but it gave you an opportunity to "take on" a "librul" in an attempt to impress like-minded individuals. It must be awful to be as pathetic as you.

    Fair is Fair

    By your logic, the government shutdown would not have occurred had Obama delayed Obamacare at that time. The government shutdown is owned by the Repubhlicans who shut it down because the President didn't delay Obamacare.



    In other words, crybaby & co. shut down the government in a temper tantrum that would make even the most unruly two year-old blush, all because they didn't get their way. Additionally, the right didn't want to delay the CUT OFF date for signing up – they wanted to DELAY THE ROLLOUT COMPLETELY in an effort to quash it, and you know that.

    DEM mechanic: Your car is broken but I have ideas I would like to try. Would you work with me and start the engine and step on the gas when I say too?

    GOP mechanic: Your car is broken and it is your fault. To prove it I pulled some wires and hoses out to make sure it is broken. But I got my car so I don't care – see you later.
    Don't you realize, cars cause global warming. We need to do away with all cars-I don't need gas, I ride the bus!


    Fossil fuel-powered vehicles are sooooo 20th century. Granted, they need electricity to charge them, but we don't need fossil fuels for that either!

    As clueless as the repub politicians are when it comes to doing ANYTHING to make this country function better, or at all, for that matter, they will probably gain seats in the House and the Senate this fall, because dem voters are too lazy to go to the polls and vote in the mid-term election.

    We, as a great nation, are doomed, because of idiot repubs and lazy dems. We don't need Russia or China, or N. Korea or Iran, to fear. We are our own worst enemy.

  8. GOP = Greed Over People

    Since more and more of the Obamacare(s) horror stories on Fox Fables prove to be out right lies, the GOP should not be in a happy place.

    Plus, now that the moron GOP Senate wanna be, just told the "haves" in Louisiana are stupid AND ignorant, does that not make Jindal's decision to NOT extend Medicaid, even more egregious?

    Who is going to take care of these hapless, helpless "sheep" if not the state leaders who campaigned to help the "least amongst us"?

    Russia invades Crimea, Ukraine soon... then Estonia, then Poland? Iran is STILL pursuing a nuclear weapon..... we have the lowest job participation in 35 years... where is the Summer of Recovery? Obama Lied to get Obamacare passed.... This is the worst President and Administration we EVER had!
    Please vote Republican.... pick the new ones... not the old cronies. There are new better ideas out there!

    Gotta stop playing with the grandkids while typing: Granted, today's alternative vehicles need electricity to charge them, but we don't need fossil fuels for that either!
