My job has me interviewing Vets, today I met one (74 y/o) and we started talking about the shutdown

Vet - Obama Care must go, it is the only way to save the government.

Me - Obama Care was approved in the House and Senate, the legislative Branch of the government, signed by the President, The Executive Branch and confirmed by the SCOTUS the Judicial Branch, that is how our government works. We should try Obama Care and fix it if need be, or if it doesn't work, get rid of it. If people don't want Obama Care they need to win the next election and have it removed

Vet - Well, Obama is ruining this country

Me - What has he done to ruin the country?

Vet - He is sending it down the drain.

Me - What exactly has he done to cause the country to go down the drain?

Vet - He has other people do his dirty work.

Me - What dirty stuff have they done?

Vet - The stuff that is ruining this country and making it go down the drain.

Me - I see, well I have to help the next Veteran now, good to meet you and take care of yourself


OUCH!

This conversation is almost exact, I can't believe the simple non understanding people possess.

I have convinced myself there are some powerful (and not so powerful people) who do not want to see this (black) President have anything positive in his legacy. They know when future generations discuss this, they will say, since he was President when it happened (the shutdown), he is responsible.

I am not very happy with Obama, but he is the President. Does anybody remember what happened to people who questioned Bush's policies?

All of it revolves around the black man.  They just cannot understand how he can be in the White House and be the most powerful man on Earth.  He must be brought down with every opportunity.  By closing the gov they have taken away a lot of White House staff and they like that.

I'm really beginning to think it comes down to this kind of xenophobia. A twice-elected Obama has forced the reactionaries to realize they aren't going to win: the future will not be run by ultraconservative white males. This so terrifies them they'll throw any and everything to the winds to try and avert it.

Yes!  Anti-Bush folks like me were not just in opposition to a president and his policies. We were traitors who hated America and wanted terrorists to destroy the country and kill our troops.  We did not deserve to live in this great country, or at all.

Country stars who dared question Bush found that nobody would play their records on country radio. If they were politicians, they got primaried. They were never allowed to go on the pundit shows, at least in the US. People like Van Jones lost their jobs and/or got lambasted 24-7 on Fox and Limbo.

People like Al Gore found themselves lied about on blogs and then the same lies magically appeared on the mainstream news.  Carefully edited snippets of speeches, saying the opposite of what was actually said, were used to smear people like Shirley Sherrod.  Remember how Dan Rather was treated? The messenger was relentlessly attacked for the message.

That was the behavior of a dictatorship, not a democracy. :P

House republicans were singing Amazing Grace today.  Reminded me of Nero fiddling as Rome burned.  Just how stupid is this?  This has the potential to make 2008 look like a bee sting.  Do they hate the black man so much that it is better to destroy the country rather than try to win an election?

Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Here's John Boehner's address for the 200 - 300 million or so of we American's that ought to drop him a line:

Conservative Rod Dreher, whom I detest, actually wants the house to go democratic in 2014 because the gop has been so irresponsible.

he’s not the only conservative that feels that way.

I think the Republican party needs to split into two new parties; if they don't, I don't think they'll survive. They'll go the way of the Whig.

Wow, it looks like this mess might be over for now.  Boner is going to end up with his head up his ass but at least we are not going back into a great recession or worse.  I know they all have to put on a good face but you know Obama would love to rub it in their face and make the GOP eat dirt. And he deserves to do so.

This is a hilarious, over the top, sarcastic attempt to avoid self-effacing the ego that instantly turns into an anti-intellectual masturbatory moment:

I love the smell of fresh schadenfreude in the morning as much as anyone. Hurray for the repub losers jumping off their stinking ship as fast as they can. They are all "independents" now. We tried to warn them. But no.

But gag me, please warn us next time if you are going to show us two fat ugly turds like "Big Hands" Coulter and that slimeball O'Reilly. :P

Here's hoping (for her sake) that's not indicative of some deeper problem. At the same time, it's reminiscent of some of the denial and meltdowns by the far-right pundits following Obama's reelection.

They're "centrists".  charles pierce on centrists:

There are three kinds of people who claim to be centrists in this country today. There are embarrassed Republicans. There are lazy people. And there are liars. There is no fourth alternative.

"Big Hands" Coulter

I think moniker is "Man Hands".  Heard she can palm a basketball.  And notice how they photoshopped out her adam's apple in the pic from Chronos.  Few things are sadder than aging drag queens.
