    Why should I give a rat's furry buttocks what a bunch of socialist journalists who don't even understand the U.S. have to say about our current "crisis." Like China earlier today, they should mind they're own darn business and worry about their slow slide into oblivion.

    Secondly, their "experts" haven't a freakin' clue. William Galston of the Brookings Institute is quoted as saying "On Oct. 17, the U.S. government will run out of money." What an absolutely idiotic statement! The man is a fool. We won't run out of money that day, or any day in the foreseeable future. We will be told we can't statutorily borrow any more money, but we have plenty of on-hand cash to pay interest obligations. They should have asked someone who knew what the heck he was talking about.

    Nancy Cohen, an author and historian, makes the ludicrous claim, "This will end when Republican Speaker John Boehner mans up," then proceeds to tell the story of how Lyndon Johnson -- shock, shock, liberals, probably oughta cover you eyes so you don't have to read this word -- compromised with northern Republicans to get the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed. Seems to me that story illustrates the necessity of the Great Pretender to "man up." Being the petulant, childish personality he is, the clown doesn't know what a man is, so that's probably not going to happen. Newsflash, Nancy: Boehner already manned up, telling this empty suit occupying the White House that his dictatorship is over.

    I will give this liberal snot-rag of a newspaper some credit: They quote James Antle, author of Devouring Freedom: Can Big Government Ever be Stopped?, as saying the GOP didn't want this fight, and are depending on concessions from the left. The Democrats are living in the past, remembering the last shutdown saved Clinton's posterior and got him reelected because the GOP came off looking petulant and childish -- the same attitude now being attributed to the Great Pretender. The American people, however, are fed up with this clown's antics, don't want the ACA, don't want the debt ceiling raised without major spending cuts, don't want a dictatorship.

    Get the broom ready. Come November 2014, we'll sweep the bums out, and truly render the Great Pretender as a lame duck.
