I think the delay is more due to finding a Boehner approved replacement.
I agree. The system was designed to be Deliberative and Adversarial. Any time it deviates from those two premises, The People get the bad end of the stick.
Conservative and effective
The extreme right wants extreme rigjt policy with no compromise. Without compromise EVEN LESS will get done in govt and Americans will grow even more frustrated with ALL politicians - but more so with the Republicans that will be seen as shutting govt completely down.

Perhaps we might realize it when Putin “accidentally” shoots down one of our planes in Syria

We are already in WWIII….. declared on us by BHO and Valerie Jarrett.
@Ghostmaker -- no, not sure...but I don't think we're going to get any volunteers for finding out what's under those Mao smocks.....some things can never be "unseen"
That's the only card she has, everything else is negative, and being a woman doesn't excuse her for being a horrible person.
She's playing the "Granny Panties" card.
Evidently so is Bruce Jenner! Lol
Exactly. It's Barry 2.0. His only "qualification" and the only reason he was even nominated is because he is black. Had he been a few shades lighter, all else being the same, he never would have been given the time of day, and Hillary would have gotten the nod instead.
As for Hillary, I don't think anyone yet has been able to point out something positive she has accomplished including her. She's been a first lady, a senator, and a Secretary of State and has done nothing of note besides getting our guys killed in Banghazi and participating in some TMZ-style celebrity drama.

He was quoted the other day as politics being a “contact sport”
Too bad they treat it as sport and don’t treat it as service to their country. Its all about power and $$$$$ and bedding interns…. quite the honorable folks those Clintons…..and a little paranoid too

Kudos on the torture aspect– giving terrorist combatants the same rights and protections as American citizens in absurd. And some of the torture is sleep deprivation, loud music, etc…
Although I support much of what Carly has to say….”went too far” and “transparency” don’t have much in common with the illegal bulk collection of data about every American and the illegal FISA court that they hide behind.
Our constitution demands warrants…. she is wrong on this one!

What do you expect– that he would respect a pansy coward?
Obama is a joke to the world….at our expense!
 September 28, 2015 at 3:22pm
Spoken like a true poet ;)
 September 28, 2015 at 3:21pm
Ok — for the record, Putin is more aligned with crony capitalism/fascism.
The end result isn’t much different though…

Monk– unless you are including SS and SS employer payroll deduction– the effective tax rate for under 25K is not even remotely close to 20% Currently close to zero. If you factor in EIC….less than zero in many cases.
You need to research this more closely

No– just keep buying their votes by sending them checks for the Earned Income Tax credit, free healthcare, and welfare benefits. Whether they are legal citizens or criminal trespassers. And the Dems/Socialists/Communists receive these votes.
EVERYONE should contribute. If they don’t contribute…. then YOU are contributing for them. Why in a free society should I be compelled under force of law (and ultimately at the muzzle of a rifle) to take from own labors and hand it over to a freeloader.
I haven’t looked at the entire tax proposal– but I know this part of it is HIGHLY flawed.
Reward freeloaders and you will get MORE OF THEM. Check our illegal immigration as exhibit 1.
Exhibit 2: In our community/state the number of teen to 30-something freeloading grungy boozing/pot smoking backpackers/beggers is exploding.
They are sucking the life out of the economy.
In exchange– they are giving up their pride and self worth. Yeah we need more of that.
@ Donald Trump,
WTH man, that’s the Obama Plan. The tax the rich “Robin Hood scam” Bull Shiat.
I thought you said you were here to kick some ass, not offer up the same old story?!.
Please actually read the plan. It is actually very good. Idealy I would like a fair tax but no one is offering that. People with more money in their pocket have greater purchasing power. He has done more here to protect the working family's paycheck than anyone so far. He is making our corporate rates competitive in the world for a change. You did NOT get the whole story in this article, surprise, surprise.
 September 28, 2015 at 11:38am
I’m getting tired sf 24 hour news coverage of the “three commies” — Pope Francis, Obama & Putin. TV off…
Watching Obama makes me ill every time he opens his piehole and the lies spring forth…
3 Stooges pushing the Communist agenda from every angle.
They warned us in the 50's and 60's that they would do this to us, and we have let them.
Now the whole world has a lot of Consequences because a Beast is here and no one can stop it.
God bless and protect His true children.
For what it is worth Putin has denounced socialism. He warned Obama not to inflict socialism on the USA in 2009 referencing the destruction socialism wrought in the USSR.
Ok -- for the record, Putin is more aligned with crony capitalism/fascism.
The end result isn't much different though...

PC is shouting down your opponents opinion and trampling his freedom of speech.
This is not America
tag frame says............American by birth - southern by the grace of god- cs flag on both sides of frame............now just above it on back window.....decal says................this state allows concealed carry--think before you act
PC is this:
To: President Harry S Truman
From: General D A MacArthur
Tomorrow we meet with those yellow bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions!
(2) Washington, D C
1300-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur
From: H S Truman
Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!
(3) Tokyo, Japan
1630-September 1, 1945
To: H S Truman
From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz
Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?
(4) Washington, D C
2120-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman
Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of s**t by the clean end!
Nice find RJJ... I had no idea PC was that old !!!
I can remember a time, before O'Bozo, when we had Freedom of Speech that was not scripted by the PC Police.
Last time I checked the Battle Flag has killed no one, not even unintentionally. I can say the same thing about My Gun collection. They just sat there waiting for me to do something constructive with them. I told them to be patient, your time is rapidly approaching.
Interesting that these quotes you attribute to Truman and MacArthur have no existence before 2006. Long after they were dead. Isn’t lying about what dead people said speaking ill of the dead? I reckon honor and integrity weren’t very high on your parents’ list of things they wanted to teach you.
Nice lies. Do you enjoy lying? Or is it pathological?
One voicing their opinion in opposition to yours, no matter how loudly is not trampling your free speech, and has nothing to do with the First Amendment.

Orange is definitely her best color!

Not the sharpest stick in the pile……he’ll probably fit in well with his fellow inmates
….after he gets his invite to the White House…

So racism is ok because you are “fed up”?
 September 24, 2015 at 12:38pm
Its not acceptable because it is racist. Not trying to be PC at all.
I’ve worked with folks from almost races– and many smart & motivated minorities including black minorities.
The problem isn’t race– it is value system, personal accountability, education, motivation, lack of assimilation and a deep sense of entitlement. Those things are deeply broken in the black community. Many other races have overcome and prospered in the US — and most started out at the bottom rung and worked their way up. [Italians, Germans, Poles, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean....the list goes on.]
Unfortunately…the current president has made each of those much WORSE under his leadership….squandering an epic opportunity.

I read that he emptied his gun gun– 10 shots fired…and 3 shots found their target
