Really, AP? Not even a mention of the Benghazi email?
Are you sure that many will ever be able to sign up for it? I'm not. The first two weeks of it have been a massive blow to the confidence of even supporters of the law. This dependency argument is the boogeyman that conservatives scare themselves with to convince themselves that Obamacare won't be as bad as we fear. And thus they throw themselves into meaningless fights that accomplish nothing other than to make themselves feel good while everyone else gets annoyed and angry with them.
This entire piece is just a way of saying that Obamacare will not be the disaster we Republicans believe it will be. Entitlement? It certainly won't be viewed as such as insurance premiums continue to rise for the vast majority of people, as hospital wait times grow larger due to doctor and other healthcare worker shortages, as people are unable to even sign up or find a suitable health plan. Mr. McCarthy is a faithless moron who doubts the central premise of his own outrage. So he would trade the real possibility of a legislative victory in favor of a show fight doomed to failure from the start. There was, from the beginning, zero possibility of defunding this putrid legislation at this time. Waging this stupid fight now has put at risk the possibility of retaking the senate which would have given Republicans REAL bargaining power rather than making us all look like clowns. This is the stupid party in full self-destruct mode.

King was a Republican.
You accepted that Obama lost the first debate? No, the left had no choice but to bemoan the obvious and there was weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth, and that was just Chris Matthews. There was no dignified acknowledgment of a great showing by Romney. Just indignant accusations that he only won because he lied. Your use of vulgar epithets demonstrates just how much sanity and dignity you possess, sir.
For the record, it is congressional Democrats who have not proposed or passed a budget in more than three years, although they are required by the Constitution to do so every year. President Obama, in keeping with tradition as a means of spelling out for Congress what his agenda is, has submitted a budget proposal every year, although he is not legally required to do so. Don't get me wrong. I'm not defending President Obama. His budget proposals have all been so ridiculous that not even one member of his own party has voted for them. I just think that if you want to criticize someone you ought not to do so with incorrect information.
Wait, tax deductibility makes something less charitable? I don't follow that logic.

Romney Dominates In First Debate

Romney is at least as accomplished as Obama in the mom-jeans-wearing department. I'm just sayin'.
Can you name one Republican presidential candidate in the last 50 years who was not an incumbent at the time who WAS way out ahead in polling at this point in the election? I'll give you a hint. There isn't one. In 1980, Carter was ahead until just before voting day. Reagan won in a landslide victory. Only in Reagan's bid for reelection has a Republican led in the lying polls at this point.
"The guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama" Hahahahahahaha! Do you even listen to yourself or are you just retarded. In 1980, Reagan was a former democrat, a former supporter of the New Deal. As Governor of California, he signed into law one of the first bills legalizing abortion. Obviously a RINO through and through, right? Worse yet, He was the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Carter! Tell me again how that turned out?
