    Congress’ll have some powerfully descriptive adjectives affixed if that particular astroid hits. Interesting times, as the Chinese say.

    We have the first ever, in the history of the United States, successful filibuster of a cabinet nominee.
    We have automatic shutdown of the government coming and the GOP goes on vacation.
    We are probably going to have our credit rating lowered so we have to pay more interest to borrow money, adding to the deficit.
    We have 70,000 crumbling bridges that we will need to be fixed for the middle class to live under after they lose all of their jobs.

    @ King of Me – Don’t forget milord of self…Tiggers’ “tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of springs”.
    @ TrustedMechanic – you diagnose these things better than my local garage diagnoses my car repairs. Always good to read you. I can’t find the source of this quote, but I once read- “The only thing worse than a lie, is a lie told as truth by those who believe it.” Though I did enjoy reading the other quotes about lies and liars as I searched for that source.

    The national debt goes up $4 billion a day. Meanwhile, in more important news, Republicans in the House of Representatives read the Constitution aloud on the House floor.

    I say, taxation with no representation. I recognize we have persons considered “representatives”, but I submit they do not represent any of us.

    As far as I can see, neither side seems interested in reasonable debate or fair compromise. They both just blame the other and wine like a bunch of little kids.

    ‘What else do you say to a child who is reckless and is going to end up hurting those around him?
    Tough love.’

    This is recognition on your part that the epithet “Party of No” applies to the GOP and that you agree it fits.

    Good comparison, children play pretend but they know when it is time to quit and go eat supper.
    The republican extremists will not quit playing pretend, and yes, it gets tiring for the grownups.

    The Republicans, however, are the little kids screaming that they want peas with dinner, then piss and moan and refuse to eat when mom puts peas on their dinner plate.

    I tried to find that quote you mentioned, but only found this instead.
    However, it does sound like something Thurber or Whitman would say….

    TrustedMechanic said….“It was NOT President Obama who proposed the sequester idea, it was a member of his staff”
    (end quote)
    tactic to divert the blame from sacred cow Obama.
    Liberals do this daily and constantly.
    Obama as THE PRESIDENT is responsible for every word that comes from his staff.
    Obama evidently approved of his staffer giving that plan to Congress, if that is how Congress got the sequester plan, and Obama signed it, and used it in rhetoric to pressure the GOP in Congress to cave on Obama/Democrat’s budget proposals. The world knows from global news that with this Obama regime it is his way or the highway.
    I give the GOP credit for not lying down like a welcome mat to Obama’s Fairyland Economics/Federal Deficits/Spending Plan.
