The funny thing is that many GOP/tea people are actually surprised by this, just as they were when they woke up last November and found that the president had been re-elected. Their bubble is so airtight that vapors of reality seldom penetrate it.

The rest of us can only hope that they continue to live in their fantasy world. As annoying as they are, people like Limbaugh, Hannity, etc are our best friends because they keep the truth-deniers drinking the kool-aid.

People on the left and right are mad at Republicans. The left blames the Republicans for the shut down and the Right are mad at Republicans for caving in!

With midterm elections being a year away..if we have learned anything....it's that the American public has a short memory and attention span

The SCOTUS decision on Citizen's United has open up the floodgates for both sides to unfairly influence election outcomes thru a bombardment of misinformation, slander and outright lies thru outside money that does not to be identified

There is a case in Montana, that SCOTUS refused to hear, because they indicated there was not definited proof that there was a connection, or proof of fraud on the part of the 501C-4...proof has been found..case is working it's way back thru the process

Stephen Colbert won an Emmy in part due to his exposing (thru comedy and satire) the pitfalls of Citizen's United ruling...Karl Rove validated it on election night 2012

I've often wonder what the old school corrupt political bosses of the 1900's (Boss Tweed, Huey P. Long, Prohibition Politicians) would do in today's political climate and legal tools at their disposal

The sad truth is that neither the Republicans or the Democrats have the answers to fix the Country's problems.

O course they know the solution, but they won't resign.
