High drama on Capitol Hill
as tempers flare, leaders fail
to reach deal

Fox News, by Staff*

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/3/2013 6:34:35 AM

Despite an emergency meeting at the White House, congressional leaders reported no progress late Wednesday on trying to reach a budget deal -- while over on Capitol Hill, tempers were flaring and lawmakers were melting down on the floor of the House. The top four congressional leaders took a stab, during an hour-long White House meeting, at negotiating with President Obama over the impasse. There was no breakthrough. House Speaker John Boehner emerged saying he had a "nice, polite conversation" but complaining that Obama would not budge off his demand that Congress pass a straight budget bill -- one that does not

I really think we should bring back dueling so these prissy wusses in Congress can stop hitting each other with purses and pejorative terms and start really getting it on.

There will be no doubt that the entire O-care mess belongs to O and the dems.

Giving them another year to get their act together would have been a gift to the dems but they were too busy cutting off their nose to spite their face.
Let it be!!!

The longer the repubs. put up bills that fund what we actually need and the dems refuse them the worse they look and harry knows this now. The only way to loose is for the chickens on our side to give up. Stay the course. Their name calling and hissy fits and nasty statements about children with cancer are not earning them new seats in the house or senate. They just look like the do nothing spoiled elitists they are. Do Not Cave. Keep putting up those small bills that fund what Americans need ! No clean cr for obama and his totalitarian dems.

Obama is busy closing private property, such as Mt. Vernon. War Memorials have never been shutdown during 17 previous shutdowns.
How about we wrap yellow tape around the White House and tell him to go to Motel 6 ?
Any doubt about his hating America has now been eliminated.
He is drunk on power, and someone needs to sober him up.
I used to think he was ignorant, now I know better, he is stupid.

Obama hasn´t gotten even one thing right for the country on his own. If anything turns out to really benifit Americans, it´s because Barry caught in circumstances beyond his regime´s control or by accident.

Local talk radio station (WMAL) had Lanny Davis on this morning talking about this shutdown and the one(s) back in 1995-6; what is the same, what is different. Of course, Lanny being his usual insufferable self, said it was all Newt Gingrich´s fault; he fell for Clinton´s trap, etc. And like then, the Republicans are losing the PR battle. I don´t think so.

One big difference between now and then is the Internet; smart phones with their cameras, independent bloggers, etc. So the spectacle of the free, open air, 24/7, 365 days accessible World War II Memorial built entirely with private donations on public land being purposefully gated to keep out WWII veterans says a lot about Obama, Reid and their ilk.

Cruz is a tactical and strategic genius. He advocated playing small ball (read mini CR´s) three weeks ago but didn´t want to show
too many cards. Zippie is an idiot but thinks he is brilliant because of his sycophants in the media and the WH. Let him keep thinking that - correlation, viz., the last shutdown, is not causation. The WWII Memorial might (or might not) be a tipping point - there will be more if Pubbies don´t lose their spine.

For those of you in Atlanta, I drove by the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area parking lot off Columns Drive this morning. A small parking lot, never attended, for people to put their money in slots and leave their cars - cross the street and walk along the river. Obama´s brown shirts have put huge pine tree logs in place to prevent anyone from parking in the lot. Good grief, how petty can one dictator get?

I heard a great clip on the radio this morning. A reporter asked Congressman Waxman, Dem from CA if he or his staff had read the current 10,500 pages of Obama Care regulations? He tried to ignore it. She asked it again. He said who are you with? She gave the name of her news organization and repeated the question. He ignored the question again. Another reporter shouted it out over the noise. Finally he said, "That is a proganda question and I am not going to answer that."

Our gracious Salon Hostess ran out of Page One space before she could report on the endless rounds of "Did too!" -- "Did not!" heard through the meeting room doors.

#10: Remember also that the deservedly-contemptible [remember to wash hands and run laptop through dishwasher after typing] Lanny Davis is on record saying they could not believe the lies they got away with in the Clinton Administration. Lanny Davis -- if he dies alone in some fleabag somewhere and isn´t discovered for a month, his body will be perfectly intact. But there will be numerous small holes in the wall where the maggots crawled off and gnawed their way through the walls to escape the room.

#15, that was a great question to Henry because most of the odious stuff from that bill came out of an old drawer that belonged to Waxman. This has been his wet dream for many years just waiting for the right time. This proves two things. Henry is up to his eyeballs in this and this reporter knows it. My, my. So all of this time the media never really reported very well on this huge confiscation of America´s freedom. Shame on them.

Obama demanded that Congress pass a budget, however the Senate hasn´t passed one in 5 years. I think AF1,2,3(and do the kids each have one), should be grounded to save tons of money on fuel and maintenance. Also how about closing down the White House and getting those dead beats out of there.

Obama is trying to run this country like a paid Community Organizer in Chi Town. It isn´t working. I think Republicans know by now that if they cave, they are history. I think this process, combined with his diplomatic defeats abroad are messing with his mind.

The democrat´s extremely childish behavior is all too indicative of the monster we, namely RINOS, hath built: By giving them their way for the past five years, about oh everything, this is what we get. It is as if a teenager has been off the chain for five or so years. Then the parents all of a sudden have a day of reckoning, get some resolve, finally implement some controls and just say no. A few smashed dishes later, maybe a sabotaged car or even a burned down house, perhaps some tangible results are gained, albeit at a price.

The democrat´s response of hysterical /maniacal "no" to any other suggestion reminds of what it would have been like to be captured by the Nazis, North Koreans or North Vietnamese and ask them for a favor. Some of the dems might want to go see a shrink after this is all over-they just aren´t right/well.

and why should the donks be angry. It is not their money (or maybe it is) and there were 17 gov shut-downs and all but one were when donks controlled Congress. Recall the the donks have controlled cong for 30 out of the last 40 yrs.

It is the greatest cover up of our time !
(1) Starting communist dominated, controlled IRS forced medicine, (2) supposedly "closing down the government" (that actually means giving all these non essential DROID robots paid vacations),
(3) putting up ridiculous yellow police tape, like a crime scene, to attempt to prevent a gathering of elderly WWII veterans at the War Memorial, (4) the entire propagandist army of Obama and his TV media Tom Brokaw brainwashers falsely claiming a great registration response .......... all of the above distractions, to cover up Hillary and Obama´s horrifying crime of murder of our men at Benghazi .......
Congress and all the red comrades are all in it together to destroy all the good that is America. The administration propaganda team will go to every extreme to hide the Hillary and Obama stand down crimes of Benghazi, and continuously torture the families of those men who died so violently. Yeah, you can look at all this as a giant cover up, too.

The last shutdown was, for most people, in the twilight of the pre-Internet era.

The media could run horror stories and tear jerkers without fear of contradictory information running elsewhere. Politicians in both parties relied on official narratives dutifully reprinted. It is a very different world now. The government is not the nation and the nation is not planet Earth, which continues to rotate on its axis.

The worst case scenario for statists is occurring: people of all political stripes are asserting or admitting that the shutdown is mostly DC melodrama.

The only target Cruz is over- is the Republican Party and the conservative movement.
Cruz promised over and over all summer , at town halls and on talk radio, that he could get the Democrats
in the Senate to sign on to defunding
and this would ultimately
force Obama to cave.
A scenario that was either sheer fantasy or a calculated lie.
It was obvious then , as it is now , that he never intended to gather the mandatory Democrat support to defund ,
he was only interested in running ads
against his Republican colleagues.
Saying they were supporters of Obamacare.
Ads he and Jim DeMint still refuse to stop running.
Cruz , with the help of Limbaugh, Palin , Hannity and Levin
has orchestrated a defunding mess that will not shut down Obamacare , only the government.
The shutdown accomplishes nothing and has played right into Obama´s hands.
It has taken the spotlight off the Obamacare rollout,
it has emboldened and strengthened Obama and
the majority Democrats,
weakened Republicans´ hands on the debt ceiling and hurt the cause.
For what ?
If anyone still thinks that the 54 Senate Democrats , 200 Democrat House members
and Obama will ultimately agree to defund Obamacare ,
please stay away from swamp land salesmen and Nigerian scammers.

"When he´s crying out
I just sing that Ghana rondo
E l´era del terzo mondo (It´s the age of the Third World)
He´s a third world man"

Steely Dan, 1980

This character Obama, this mendacious bad actor on the world stage, was born, brought up, and fed on solely Third World belief systems, and his goal is to bring the preeminent First World nation as low as he can bring it. In time he´ll be the most reviled man in the Free World, and his party, the so-called Democratic Party, will be rare in elective government, as they should be. In the meantine, be prepared to bleed. It´s a part of the plan.

Actually, I believe swamp land salesmen are bastions of credibility compared to obsessive anti-Cruz posters. Ted Cruz has become the de facto leader of conservatives and, along with his like-minded warriors within the movement, has inspired over two million signatures against Obamacare. But, I suppose these are mainly rubes who just don´t realize the political insight possessed by #27 and prefer to deal with Nigerian scammers.

One would think that Dingy Harry was completely insane to state that he and his dims would negotiate only AFTER passing something that he wants. If he gets that, then what is left to negotiate? Does he really think that Republicans can´t see that if that happens he himself will tell them that there in nothing left to talk about. They already passed a law. I just can´t belief that there are enough of outright stupid people to belive in that. Or does Dingy Harry think the the bulk of citizens really are that stupid?

Beware Ryan, Cantor, and the other Republican traitors in the House. There is already talk of a "Grand Bargain." Watch them sneak amnesty through in a budget/debt limit deal.

I´m sorry, but my old cynic senses are on high alert, and my BS meter is pegged. The irrational intransigence, the high drama, the comments dropped over the past few months about how the House Republicans would get an amnesty bill through by the end of the year, the business interests who want the cheap Mexican labor. It all adds up to a major piece of skullduggery. Cruz messed up the timeline for their treachery, but they´re still going through with it. I hope I´m wrong. I´m not. Grit your teeth. Here it comes.

The republican liberals in congress are running the show and they care less what the people want. No matter how many times you call and refuse to give $$$$ they will never change.

#27 is right, but such voices are lonely. It felt good, I suppose, to believe that Cruz and Lee could pull it off, but most should have realized it could not happen. No matter the enthusiasm, the numbers simply weren´t there and there was no way the Senate Dems were going to suddenly agree with Republican conservatives. The problem, of course, is now what. There was no plan for what was to happen after the stand was made and then failed.

#27 is not right.

In the criticisms of Ted Cruz, I hear the voices who told us that by nominating RINO Romney we would defeat Obama and restore this country to greatness. How did that work out, hmmm? Romney was lukewarm and people spat him out of their mouths.

George Washington did not win every battle. He probably had a go-along-to-get-along crowd criticizing him at every turn as well. But he held on to his principles and he kept fighting. And eventually he won the war.

Ted Cruz, you keep going. You know what the Founders believed and you believe in it, too. Many of us out here in the heartland are praying for you to be safe and to have great wisdom as you lead this fight. Right makes might, and eventually we will prevail.

What makes anyone think the GOP congress members can stand together to win the issue when the rest of the party can´t do the same in support of their efforts.
It´s just not those who are labeled RINO´s who are too dense to to unite.
George Washington nearly lost the war when
Tories failed to back him and groveled to the British. He was nearly defeated at Brandy wine because he was cut off from the west and supplies thanks to those same Tories who probably wanted security more than freedom. So who are the present day Tories?

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

"This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Benghazi: Before the administration told the world the false narrative of the attack on our compound, the CIA´s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no spontaneous demonstration occurred. We didn´t need any more proof that the president of the United States, Barack Obama, his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, and his United Nations ambassador, Susan Rice, repeatedly and deliberately lied to the American people. They told the public that the terrorist attack on our Benghazi diplomatic mission was a spontaneous demonstration that went rogue in response to an Internet video.

Islamofascism: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc. ´Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016," said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who´s Who of Brotherhood front groups. "We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community."

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

Regulation: The White House has released a Climate Action Plan that includes the targeting of methane emissions from cows and other barnyard animals that threaten the planet through belching and other, er, activities. It´s our lust for cheeseburgers that´s dooming the planet through climate change, the Obama administration said in a Climate Action Plan released Friday that seeks to save us all from ruminant livestock.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev.

Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
