    Re: Government Shutdown



    CNN reporting that there are enough votes in the house to end the shutdown , but Boehner wants to have discussions with Obama first...and of course, Obama has said no.

    I don't really get that.

    If the House is ready to end the shutdown and figure things out , why wouldn't everyone be on board with that?

    "Never let a crisis go to waste"

    Obama is not a President, he is a community organizer, this is what he does.

    EDIT: Also I wouldn't put it past CNN to report that the house has the votes to put pressure on them to act.

    More evidence of the administration's despicable behavior:

    Utterly disgusting. Of course the MSM will cover their ears and hum rather than expose this abuse of power.

    CNN has no idea how many votes their are, none. They are basing their conclusion on the assumption every Democrat would vote for a "clean" CR (which isn't actually a given) combined with a certain number of Republicans who have made statements that hint that they are open to the idea (which are not even close to the same as delivering an actual vote, in fact, these days such statements are a way for politicians to have it both ways).

    This is a Democratic party meme, and CNN and other MSM lemmings are simply spreading it.

    That said, Republicans absolutely are closer to caving. They are more fractured, held together by the flimsiest of circumstances, and they are fighting each other for future power within the party.

    The way this should end, is that Democrats agree to a popular-with-the-people concession, like removing the medical device tax or even allowing the Keystone pipeline, the Republicans accept the miniscule cost-free gesture, and both sides declare victory (the Republicans' declaration being the laughable one, of course).

    Of course OBY doesn't want to talk to them.
    He's partisan and has gotten his way on almost
    every issue except his budget where even his own
    Senate didn't vote for it.
