Shutdown? Lets Talk Politics

Updated on October 3, 2013

Hold Onto Your Cookies!

Can you imagine President Harry Reid? That might be worse than President Joe Biden or President Hillary (What Difference Does It Make Now) Clinton. The question at this point with Glitch (I'm Not Going To Compromise) Obama and the government shutdown is, "Is Obama one of those non-essential federal employees among the 800 thousand on furlough?" How about for the doozy of all doozies President Nancy Pelosi?

It seems that Harry Reid is presently running the show in Washington DC. Word is out that he has told Obama not to talk to the Republican leadership. Seems there might be a break in the fissures because Obama is convening a pow-wow up on the hill tonight. Seems a little late in the game Glitch. v Did Harry fgive you his permission to fart or what?

So lets look at the REAL reason for this manufactured crisis and it all revolves around politics and childish partisan politics as usual rather than doing the will of the people. They seem to think that once elected that their will is the will of the people. Ever notice that?

This Is What They Need to Kiss!

What we've been viewing for about a week now is a backwards look through the US Senate 2014 binoculars. They seem to be showing us how small they can be as a prelude to the mid-terms. The chances of the Democrats winning back the House of Representatives is remote. Most Democratic Presidents don't bode well in the mid-terms of their second term. That's history so go look it up. they are now in danger of losing the Senate and rightfully so. Look at the Senate Majority Leader and his inability to lead rather than obstruct and you'll see the reason why.

That's the political reality that most Americans just don't give a flip about but those seat warmers do. Why would any Senate Majority Leader not negotiate when that's what is supposed to be the nature of the game in Washington DC? How, and for that matter why, are any House proposals unilaterally deemed DOA by one man? Do we have a President who leads his party or does Harry Reid?

Now get this America! HARRY REID SHUT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOWN FOR POLITICAL REASONS. Understand that? Harry Reid wants to continue to sit there on his tired butt and warm that Senate Majority seat cushion.

Harry just blamed the Republicans for shutting down the World War II Memorial and trying to deny that war's veterans from visiting an open air memorial financed using private funds, not federal government anything there folks. They think they own everything when in fact We, the People own it all. They are but caretakers.

The Democrats did the same thing during the sequestration. Lets make the public feel the pain of ,making us rein in our follies. Now I ask you, "Are the lunatics already running the asylum or what?"

Harry as Nurse Ratched? Can you imagine? He won't negotiate and he tells Obama not to negotiate so there you go., He won't appoint conference conferees to hash it out. he wants the American people to suffer as much as possible. Ask yourself why? don't be so much of a naïve sheeple that you ignore the obvious. He's been playing this same game since the mid-terms of 2010 and pouting the whole time. His stinkin' thinkin' makes him play this out as long as possible wanting the public to blame everyone but him and his twisted mental illness called partisan politics.

Obama runs out to the golf course and the US Senate takes the weekend off with Harry Reid pontificating on high that he is calling the shots and all the shots. the man is a self-serving lunatic that has no business holding ANY public office much less senate Majority Leader. Many of us saw this coming when the most inexperienced person to ever run for office got elected to the highest office in the land. Obama knows very little about legislative activities so he was putty in the hands of Reid and Pelosi. Those are professional pick pockets those two are.

You know when even Politico reports that Reid nixed Obama meeting with Boehner and McConnell who is running the country. He told Obama go ahead but he would be a no show., So evidently Obama is relying on Reid to be his fall guy if there is to be a fall guy. What I am witnessing is sickening but predictable conduct by Glitch Obama.

He assembles adoring crowds and serves out the blame to lead on everyone but himself. He is the problem not the solution when he does that. Someone needs to medicate Harry Reid. Between Chuckie "Cheesehead" Schumer and Harry the discourse is getting worse."

A QUOTE FROM HARRY REID: "We're here to serve the government." Now think about that statement.

"Vote It," "Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Why Would We Do That? That Was Reid's Question?

      teaches - Obama's ego only understand s what he wants. If he doesn't get it then expect a political tantrum.

      There is not much left to pick pocket. We are all wondering what comes next. I was reading the comments and see that most of us (3 bil people in the us and only 51,000 signed up for it!) are against ObamaCare -- when will the government understand this?

      Jim, the root of all this, other than the differences on ObamaCare, is the same for all the "elite players:"

      (1) They are too scared to phase out federal entitlements ($2 trillion in cash per year) and devolve them to the States, even though they violate federalism and we can never pay off the future liabilities without massively inflating, because the elderly vote, and they vote in large numbers.

      (2) The $1 trillion per year in cash the fed's spend on "alphabet soup" agencies and their associated vendor contracts, also in violation of federalism, create tens of thousands of regulations Congress can grant exemptions from in exchange for campaign war-chest contributions.

      The two items above are the real reasons we have a deficit and debt crisis. It all boils down to plutocracy to garner votes and campaign cash. And if our "Dear Leaders" in Nirvana-On-Potomac don't have an epiphany soon and fix these two crises, our nation is going to collapse.

      Good one, Froggy -- and as to Old Poolman's comment -- I think that Superman (having been portrayed as a person with high morals for eons) would probably barf at the idea of even trying to fix the mess this country's in. He's probably rather tackle the rest of the world and just let this country stew in it's own juice! LOL! Best/Sis

      If Harry Reid did become President, I would be moving to another place very quickly. That would be the absolute end of this great country. Some of the other names that have been brought up as possible candidates are not much better.

      I'm not sure that even Superman could fix the mess that has been created in this country.

      SealBeach - It's come to the point with the career pick pockets we send over and over again to warm those cushions that immorality is okay as long as it is legal. True statement my friend. Obama never had my cote because I saw him for the fraud he is from the get go.

      The President lost my vote when he declared--after bailing-out the bankers for destroying America.

      "What the bankers did was immoral--but legal." Sometimes I think we should outsource our criminal justice to China!

      If Harry Reid is involved you can bet it will be both unfair and unproductive. What the hell was Nevada thinking when they voted this guy back in office. Oh, probably about the same as us in Arizona when we voted the head Rino McCain back in office.

      Frog, how can you disparage Reid and Pelosi like you do? Everyone one knows if anyone can be called salt of the earth it's these two!

      US Government shuts because it finally meets with international standards on healthcare.

      He showed up for this 5:30m meeting today. Obama previously wanted to have a meeting and Reid nixed that one. That was before the shutdown Jim.

      Is it true that Harry Reid did not show up?
