    Now, children, what lessons have we learned? None, just like the last time? Splendid! Now it’s time to do the true business of Washington: solicit funding. Governance? How quaint.

    Why are their expense accounts always filed on time?

    “…Tea Party majority of the House…”

    The Tea Party Caucus has 49 members with about 31 hangers on. Boehner needs to grow some and use his position to discredit those twits.

    Don’t worry, US. The world knows that it’s just the republicans and the tea-party crazies.

    Good comment, Michael. I’ll avoid the book though, I think we may well see the ‘month’ that transitions occurs in a decade or so.
    As long as our subs can’t be traced, we’re safe. If that changes, the game changes to China’s favor, especially since we’re paying them so much for products and interest payments they can afford to court other nations and build their military while we decline on the foreign scene and our young people are too unhealthy or uneducated to do the high tech jobs the military needs.
    Not a good scenario.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    “Boehner needs to grow some….”
    Wouldn’t hold my breath. Boehner is a weathervane in a hurricane, pivoting every which way to provide the least resistance.
    And yet he’s still the preferable choice to Cantor. We are well and truly through the looking glass at this point, aren’t we?

    It’s funny, Wolf. I supported some of the tea party stuff when they were doing their demonstrations. They were only demonstrating for three things (I think). I don’t see the tea party twits in Congress as having much resemblance to the desires of those that participated those demonstrations. The twits have extrapolated those things the demonstrators wanted to cover anything (or everything) that regular Republicans and, probably, some Democrats would like to see happen and torpedoed those things.

    “We have to get something out of this but, I don’t know even what that is.”

    Neither do we.

    “engineered….by Obama…”
    Maybe not engineered, but how could he resist allowing them to end their chances of re-election.
    Watch and wait, almost foolproof method for most predators to take their helpless prey.

    I think that Obama is humble enough that he wouldn’t want more than two….

    That notion of U.S. world standing having gone over the cliff is pretty much accurate. The U.S. has many natural advantages – geography, resources, agriculture, climate – and they are allowing a few extremists to blow it. Government structure may be at fault. The self-proclaimed self-righteous Patriots like to tout the Constitution as being the greatest political document devised by man, under direction of God. Did God screw up? Maybe he could do some tweaking!

    Excuse me? All these anti-Tea Party comments are made by the modern know nothings. They know nothing but never miss a chance to expound. A lot like Obama.
    As I recall, interest on the national debt is the first thing that must be paid and it is a mere fraction of daily revenue for the US government. That doesn’t sound like a “default” to me! And issuing new debt to roll over maturing debt adds nothing to the national debt. What would be reduced is discretionary spending…and of course, we can’t have that!

    As for the shutdown: Face it. Obama and Harry Reid caused the shutdown by not voting for (or signing) the spending bills approved by the House. They own the shutdown.

    All these anti-Tea Party comments are made by the modern know nothings.

    The Tea Party started out with the single minded goal of stopping Obamacare in it’s tracks. Given the Democrats running the Senate & the Executive Branch, that was an unrealistic goal. They never figured out an achievable goal & wound up empty handed. The Tea Party wants to deal in absolutes, but that is not a winning mindset in legislative politics.
