You Know You’re Losing in American Politics…

LosingTonight, Lawrence O’Donnell observed that you know you’re losing in American politics when you see Sarah Palin standing right beside you.

Seventy-four percent of Americans disapprove of the way Republicans in Congress are handling negotiations over the budget, the Washington Post-ABC News poll shows. This is up four points from last week’s poll and up 11 points since the start of the shutdown.

A plurality of self-identified Republicans are opposed to the Republican Shutdown and the even more appalling threat of a default on the National Debt that would plunge America and the world into another recession, or perhaps all the way to depression this time.

Allen Clifton:

Anyone who had heard about the Million Vet March on the Memorials knew this march wasn’t meant to be any kind of political statement.

…You also shouldn’t be shocked that Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Mike Lee decided to turn the march in Washington DC into a photo-op for their own political gains.

…This is just more of the same behavior from Republicans. They’re blaming someone else for a problem they caused. Their party is the one that’s not allowing the House to vote on the Senate’s clean continuing resolution that would reopen the government. We could reopen the government today if John Boehner would just let the House vote, but he won’t.

So when these people show up at the White House holding symbols of racism and shouting things which are racist, while blaming President Obama for the government shutdown, they prove one glaring fact…

That they don’t know a damn thing.

    Sarah Palin holds no office of any kind in any place. Why do you spend any time paying attention to her?

      As Lawrence O’Donnell noted, you know you’ve lost in American politics if you see yourself standing next to her.

          You asked what is Sarah Palin’s significance? That’s it.

          • #5 by brewski on October 15, 2013 - 2:07 pm

            She is significant only because of the attention you and MSNBC pays to her.

            ell brewski, she was the republican’s chosen vice presidential candidate, successor the the president, shrill, mindless buddy of Raphael ‘Carnival’ Cruz, wolf killer, and, let’s see, surely that list goes on.

            Insert an ‘H’ at the beginning of that last comment.

    Under the Richard Warnick who ever has a flag must be right rule, Obama must be one of these supporters:

    It’s when we lose the thread that we’re almost forced to create our own realities.

    Some people are better at this than others. Sadly it’s because they’re perpetually losing the thread.

    Do you ever find yourself asking, Is this country really worth saving?
