Last Call For Cruzing To The Poll Position

We have it again, are you going to believe Ted Cruz or your lying eyes?  Now that those pesky facts are getting in his way, he's going to take the GOP route of ignoring science and facts.

"If you seek out liberal Obama supporters and ask them their views, they're going to tell you they're liberal Obama supporters. That's not reflective of where this country is," Cruz told NBC News in an interview at the Capitol.

In the full poll, for example, 70 percent of respondents said that the GOP has put its own agenda ahead of what is good for the country. With Democrats removed, that number is still a majority of respondents at 56 percent.Even when Democrats are removed from the results of the poll, NBC/WSJ pollsters calculate that the results still show strongly negative reactions from independents and Republicans about the government shutdown and the GOP.

Where have we heard this before?  Oh yeah, when Republicans said the election polls were skewed lies that were generated to make them lose spirit.  Except they weren't.  They were mostly right on, but once the truth could be proved the lie was over.  Until now.

The article above takes out Democrats and shows the numbers are still devastating.  At this point, we should start sending thank you cards instead of criticism.  At the rate they are self-destructing, may they never listen to a us again!  Because when history settles the facts it will be clear through their own words or actions that no shady acts from the left caused this.  These morons just finally bought their own lies and spiraled out of control.  Their shame finally came home to roost, as my grandmother would say.

Can anyone seriously believe that someone so far removed from science and fact knows "where the country is" in regard government issues?  Cruz couldn't find his ass with both hands and a flashlight right now, and his poker face is wearing thin.  It's over, they know it's over, and when they get their spanking in front of a global audience, maybe we can get back to real business.

By the way, Cruz's numbers are dipping sharply, but I guess their sample was flawed yet again, so he's not concerned.  They can only make jackasses this big in Texas.

The Ultimate Sanction

Reeling from a massive defeat in the polls over the shutdown debacle that they caused, Republicans are now making open threats that if President Obama doesn't meet their demands and the GOP then fails to raise the debt ceiling, the resulting default will be an impeachable offense...for President Obama.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) isn't sure whether he'll support a debt limit deal, but he is sure of one thing: a debt default would be President Barack Obama's fault. 
A reporter for The Young Turks asked Gohmert whether he'd support a bill that would raise the debt ceiling at the Values Voter Summit on Friday. 
"The word 'deal' concerns me," he said. "If it's good for America." 
When asked whether he would allow the government to default on its debt, Gohmert projected the responsibility for such circumstances onto Obama. 
"No," he said, "that would be an impeachable offense by the president."

Moose Lady picked up on this theme last weekend as well.

President Barack Obama is risking “impeachable” offenses with the way he is handling the debt limit debate, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said in a post on her Facebook page Monday. 
Defaulting on our national debt is an impeachable offense, and any attempt by President Obama to unilaterally raise the debt limit without Congress is also an impeachable offense,” Palin wrote.

The threat is pretty explicit here:  unless the President gives in to the GOP's extortion, they will force the nation to default, blame the President, and begin impeachment proceedings.  They will also impeach if the President tries to go around Congress and raises the debt limit by executive order through the 14th Amendment, which President Obama has said multiple times he will not do.

But of course if the options are "default and be impeached" and "raise the debt limit by fiat and be impeached" the remaining option Republicans leave is a deal to raise it on their terms.  Hell, some of most rabid Tea Party Republicans say they will never raise the debt ceiling now, so you can see where this is going.

Will the debt ceiling battle become an impeachment fight?  I'm thinking there's more than a few wingers who want to see that fight play out, and are already using the threat as leverage to wreck any possible deal that comes out of the Senate.

Once again, Obama Derangement Syndrome threatens to destroy the country.

Zero Credibility

It's hard to imagine who has less credibility right now, Forbes' professional GOP Obamacare propagandist Avik Roy is in one corner...

A growing consensus of IT experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out a principal reason why the website for Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing. Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away.

Yes, the Obamacare website's troubles are in fact programmed in on purpose because it's a giant conspiracy folks, what are you going to do?

And yet Roy sounds calm and measured next to new king emoprog and useful idiot Ezra Klein, who takes what should be legitimate points about Obamacare's federal launch and then all but calls for mass firings in HHS and the White House.

We're now negative 14 days until the Affordable Care Act and most people still can't purchase insurance. The magnitude of this failure is stunning. Yes, the federal health-care law is a complicated project, government IT rules are a mess, and the scrutiny has been overwhelming. But the Obama administration knew all that going in. They should've been able to build an online portal that works. 
Early on, President Obama like to compare the launch of the Affordable Care Act to Apple launching a new product. Can you imagine how many people Steve Jobs would've fired by now if he'd launched a new product like this? 
So is anybody going to be held accountable? Is anybody going to be fired? Will anyone new be brought in to run the cleanup effort? Does the Obama administration know what went wrong, and are there real plans to find out?

It's really difficult to tell the difference between Roy and Klein right now, and that should pretty much tell you everything you need to know.  Because, gosh, Republicans sure are calling this a bigger scandal than BenghaziIRSDebtGate, and Ezra is happily playing along with the GOP calling for heads when maybe he should pull his own head out of his ass and realize that A) Republicans and SCOTUS happily made an overwhelmed federal exchange system the default in 36 states, and B) these same assclowns are about to do far, far more damage to our country in about 48 hours than a glitchy website.

Yes, it's bad that the websites are having problems.  You know what's worse?  Not having an economy due to a default cascade ripping the global economy into shreds.  You're exactly the distraction the GOP is counting on right now.

Get some goddamn perspective, Ezra.
