  1. Republicans also said they wanted to Repeal and REPLACE Obamacare..

    Where are their ideas to bring health care reform?

    • Even tho the website for enrolling for health insurance was a disaster at the beginning, I think the republicans bitching about all things to do with Obamacare made people aware of its existence. Republicans have been effective at publicity for the new law and the fact that many who never had health insurance can now sign up. It takes lots to get the attention of many people, and the republicans screaming non stop may have been ‘just the ticket.’

  2. I expect impeachment proceedings to begin early next calendar year. The republicans have nothing, and even their constituency may be catching on to the fact that Obamacare is a law that isn’t going away. Running against Obama will give them something to deflect from their lack of ideas, accomplishments, or a platform. It doesn’t take much to fool their constituents and impeachment proceedings may be the only way they can save face with their ‘base.’ I also think they’re too dumb and blinded by hate to realize how badly it will alienate everyone else, and that their base has already proven to be too few votes to win a national election. Maybe it could save a few congress critters in the districts with the least informed voters. There are some gerrymandered districts where being black and daring to win two presidential elections would be adequate evidence for impeachment.

      I think if they did it would be the real end of the Party as a viable political party. You just can not depend on people buying for very long that it I raining when you piss on their legs. especially if they can not see a single cloud in the sky. It would be such a total delusional play and saying that they believe that the people are just that stupid… Barring the Palin followers.

  3. Well, I guess the good news is that every time they shut down the government or try to impeach, Democrats pick up seats in Congress. If the website problems are fixed and the rest of the law works as intended, it could be good news next November. If problems persist, it could cost Democrats the Senate.

    I’m glad the tech experts they brought in for the fix seem to be doing well, although the back end issues and the Spanish language version are waaaaay back on the burner. Those Spanish speaking voters are essential to Democrats keeping the Senate and making gains if not outright taking the house.

    Lots of obstacles to taking back the House. Voter disenfranchisement laws, constricted voting times, gerrymandered House districts, and general disapproval of Congress, (but not MY congresscritter) are all big obstacles to overcome. Hell, Democrats will be lucky to hold the Senate. If not, buh-bye ACA and hello impeachment!

    It truly gets me the way that some seem to be cheering the thought of the death and ruination of others to foster their Politic ends? Some of them are even those who stand tall and making the claim that they are followers of God and Jesus. They could not be, if they were they would have to believe that the day would come when they would have to face their God and explain their actions.

    How could they justify their actions toward others to Christ? Like to be a mouse in the corner when they would try!

    • R.D. — you and I have the same desire – to have front row seats when these self-professing Loud-N-Proud churchy people try to schmooze their way past God and paint themselves as such fine morally superior folks.

  5. Most especially if that woman is your wife since you save enjoyment for your ‘special’ friends.
