In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

    1. Can somebody call 911 for me in advance? I have to take a shot every time Obama blames Republicans and I think I’ll be suffering from alcohol poisoning.

      1. Hey, Andy, do you see any signs in your area of people wanting to dump Merkley in the next election because of Obamacare? I live in Central Oregon. He’s not popular here, but I know on your side of the mountains he is.

  1. LIAR~!!!!!
    “it doesn’t add a dime to our debt”

    either he doesn’t know what the debt ceiling means or he’s a rabid liar.

    1. he’s incompetent
      and a liar
      but not an incompetent liar. he’s actually a very competent liar.

      i’m glad he’s not trying to scare the people or the markets or the currency. pfft.

      1. I went in the other room for about 5 mins–that snotty, I am so cool tone and the half-baked “examples” just screech on me like razor cuts in alcohol.

        1. So true. Here he is, a multi-millionaire who hasn’t purchased a loaf of bread or an ounce of gas for years, talking about paying one bill, but not the other.
          What the diggety-dong does he think millions of Americans have been doing for the past 5 years ?

          Clueless, tonedeaf, and irresponsible speechifying will never win the day.

          1. Yeah! Diggety-dong–me likee. Every time he tries to be “funny” or “normal,” I bail screaming over the side. Yes, we prioritize–yes, it ruins our credit–of course, we can’t print money…or at least we are not supposed to.

  2. Why didn’t the President go to ASIA. His schedule shows he hasn’t done anything (excepting PDB’s) the last few days. Oh, he had lunch with Biden one recent day, excuse me.

    1. He’s not looking too good these days on the international scene. Best to have Kerry out there alone so he has someone to blame. And with Kerry on the loose, that’s almost axiomatic.

      If Obama doesn’t kill us all off here, Kerry will do it overseas.

      I say in jest.

  3. “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills. … I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.” Sen. Baraq Obama, 16 March 2006

  4. I cannot continue to watch him.

    All his complaints about republicans gerrymandering applies to Democrats, too. And what is wrong with members of Congress representing the interests of its constituents? Unless they don’t agree with MrO.

  5. Again, it is all about him. I’m this, I’m that, I’m willing, In my entire political career….if they think my word isn’t good enough….I’m not going to….I’m happy to sit down with them for as many hours as they want….I want this – OMG! He just admitted that Carney hand picked the reporters to ask questions! What angers me is that NO ONE ever calls him out…..I’m going crazy over this……….I need a strong drink.

  6. as someone already quoted.. here is the comparison comment.

    “America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

    — Sen. Barack Obama, March 16, 2006

    “Nobody likes to be tagged as having increased the debt limit for the United States by a trillion dollars. As president, you start realizing, you know what, we can’t play around with this stuff. . . . (Raising the limit is) important for the country.”

    — President Barack Obama, April 15, 2011

      1. Sounds like Obamacare.

        Here’s a thought: maybe the Obamacare website is just an insurance straw man and it’s actual purpose is to collect citizens’s personal information. Considering the current “leadership” in the WH it makes sense to me.

  7. Mark Knoller should be expecting an IRS audit in the coming days. He definitely deviated from the Carney script. Obama of course dodged answering it.

    1. Owen, just after I typed my comment which is now being moderated (I asked why no one calls Obama out on anything), then Mark Knoller did! I loved it!

  9. No offense to Keith. I can’t stand to listen to this guy so I don’t. Apparently there was a major fail of the press corpse here. It is well covered at Ace of Spades if you just want a quick recap of response.

    And I see that the NPS has treated a tour of seniors badly in Yellowstone in the foreign press calling our NPS the Gestapo. Not looking good. Especially for Secretary of Interior Jewell who no one seems to hold responsible for enforcing this nonsense.

    And yet in America, we seem to be taking this in stride. Obama is not the only delusional person.

  10. John McCain gifts America to the emperor. Tired of this. Supporting a clean CR to last until the next election.

    This, after Obama, incites fear in the market and turns the relationship of the citizens to the state upside down in less than a week.

  11. The current attacks on the Tea Party by Obama and the Democrats seem to me to be cut from the same cloth as the IRS attacks. Ergo, it indicates to me that the Obama administration is knee deep in the IRS scandal and probably ordered it.

      1. I donated to The College Republicans a couple of years ago. In 2012 we were audited. That had never happened before. Now I am afraid to give to any organization that is conservative. Their mission was accomplished. Just what the Dimocrats wanted all along. Unlike Carson, we had $17K to pony up. The problem? I had not kept paper receipts for business expenses, like lunches and seminars. They would not accept our accountant’s records or our electronic receipts. Then I heard that the IRS employees themselves were seriously lacking in exactly those kind of records, butt they take those deductions anyway.

        1. …College Republicans… its a good thing my group never kept any receipts from the CPACs or LI schools we attended…(aka: bar tabs, hotel mini-bars & 24 hour diners -LOL)

    1. Yep, he’s holding strong so far. The establishment always seems to find ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, so we’ll see.

  12. Been out of the country for a year…returned for a short vacation.
    Have found small business and after small business going out of business or already gone.
    Today I saw a church sign that said, “Remember, a country divided against itself will fail.”
    I am sickened by the thought that we are now afraid of our own government.
    Are we now so divided that failure is imminent? Are we now so divided that we cannot reach a collective fiscal agreement that is good for the country – no matter the impact on either political party?
    How in the world can anyone from either party justify keeping our veterans from their memorials? How can anyone look the American people in the face and justify evicting senior citizens from their home? How have we allowed the White House to be closed to the public?
    Those who believe that these actions are justified in the name of political expediancy are wrong. “I pity the fool*” who supports the government officials who instigated these practices – believe me…karma is a bitch. (*Quoted from Mr.T)

  13. On McCain’s clean cr with unlimited debt ceiling and cuts and negotiation
    to come later, need 6 Republicans. On board — Graham and Mark Kirk, and probably Ayotte who can’t stand alone without her left and right arms John and Lindsey.

    Because all this back and forth, as McCain says, is so “tiresome”.

    But so far, so good. All this has kept eyeballs off the Amnesty Party on the Mall. Hope they clean up after the pinata.

    1. McCain has lost his mind. And the Pinata Fest? Most people in this country have no idea how NOT THIRD WORLD we have been. If we don’t all become braver, we are about to find out – and BELIEVE ME…it is not a state of being that we want to live.
      Chicken shit politicians! (Please excuse my language, I am so pissed off today.)

    2. Mr. McCain needs to take out his Constitution and read it. Article I, Section 7. “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives;” McCain and his minions need to take their funding bill and put it where the sun don’t shine.
