Re: Potential Government Shut Down

Good one.

If he wins again we will know who the bigger joke is, him or the sad sack of shit that is the republican party.

Not sure who yet....shame Christie isn't running. Michelle Bachmann is a strong possibility. But with numbers like these as long as the GOP doesn't run Palin or Gingrich (negative opinions too high) there's a solid chance of regaining the WH in 2012.

Sure hope Bachmann doesn't run, agree about Christie. But those who would probably vote for Christie anyway are not a large contingency. Could be a VP candidate. He did make the finals of VP Madness (against Marc Rubio) on MittRomneyCentral.com

As for is there anyone who can beat President Obama? Well, it's still early. Past elections should have taught us that

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

Bachmann makes Palin look tame. Doubt she could even get the nomination let alone beat Obama. Right now I don't see a viable candidate, but as SS said it's early.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

I want someone new who is not an insider but I don't think that will happen. The blame game is now starting from both side on this shut down. Is it really that hard to cut 100 billion from the budget. The right needs to concede on some of the corporate tax breaks (GE) "by the way F&^k GE and I will not buy any more of their products" and the dems need to concede on some of the other cuts.

Thought this was interesting from Slate, on Bachmann:

Michele Bachmann for president? Among Republicans, she's more popular than you think. - By David Weigel - Slate Magazine

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

This isn't about who is living in The House. It's about two sides that are not willing to care about the people they are supposed to be serving enough to cut the bullshit. When our country gave up on it's people and cared more about money than ever we started heading down tis slope. Some of you may feel it's this president who is at fault, I feel that he shoulders some of the blame. It's everyone that works down the street from where I do who is to blame. They all need to sit down and think about what they are doing to the american people.

The companies that are making money hand over fist yet they pay no taxes, give them a bill just like I get every paycheck and every year. Maybe that can help a little bit ?

What do I know, not too much but **** them all for the stress they are putting us through. All this standoff at High Noon bullshit is real childish.

Bachmann? Ya'll never hear the crazy shit that bitch be saying? Come on man, she will get embarrassed by Obama.

Christie, that guy is nice. Real shame he isn't running.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

So should we start a How To Pass Time During The Government Shutdown thread ?

We are animals with competing interests and I require a different type/level of service.

I actually don't care if the goverment does shut down because I feel they do more harm then good when they are actually working passing bill.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

This is ridiculous. Shutting down the government will actually cost us, the tax payers, more money in the long run. I agree that fiscal changes need to be made in Washington, but putting this many people on furlough is not fair. Not only will government employees be sitting at home, so will their contractor counterparts. Curious how this will impact the often insulated Northern VA economy.

At my job we've basically been told it doesn't look good. Prepare to get some time off.
