This shutdown is not the result of the two parties acting equally irresponsibly. It is the product of an increasingly radicalized Republican Party, controlled by a deeply disaffected base that demands legislative hostage-taking in an effort to get what it has not been able to attain through the electoral process or the judiciary.

Republicans in the House are making demands that are both preposterous and largely unrelated to budgetary matters. In return for keeping government running (and, even more ominously, for paying its bills), they want President Obama to undermine the health care law that he ran on in 2008 and 2012, and now considers his signature domestic accomplishment.

No president of either party could accept that kind of badgering. No president should, as it would set a terrible precedent.

USA Today's editorial board, on the “shutdown party” and where Americans should place the blame for the federal government shutdown. When the fence sitters at USA Today take a side AND sound reasonable, y’all know you did something wrong. (via bapgeek)

Obama better be taking notes, he has all the tools to destroy Romney. Stop playing nice

The public doesn’t respond well to Obama not being nice. If he breathes incorrectly he’s an angry black man. Joe Biden is an old white man, he can go hard in the paint without receiving racist backlash.

Yup an attitude will be read as “Angry Black Socialist Muslim Man wants to install death panels” no matter what he actually said.

Ricky Watson of Littleton, Colorado wipes tears from his eyes after he thanked President Barack Obama for repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” at a campaign rally in Golden, Colorado, September 13. Watson was kicked out of the Air Force 25 years ago for being gay.

damn where does he get his shirts at ive always wanted one like that

LTMC: A reminder that the wounds of discrimination always run extraordinarily deep.  25 years, and he is still moved to tears by the pain of a military career destroyed by institutionalized bigotry.

Bold is mine for emphasis. Made me very emotional just looking at this.

Bill O’Reilly: “A lot of Americans feel you’re a big government liberal who wants to intrude on their freedom. Now, they also say that you’ve been moving—.”

President Obama: “I think that a lot of the folks who watch you, Bill, believe that.”
