    The man is simply incompetent at his job. Last week he broght a bill to a vote before he had the votes, and he lost, which is embarrassing for any Speaker.

    Now, he can't even keep vital services running:

    FAA faces partial shutdown


    The Federal Aviation Administration faced a partial shutdown Saturday morning as Congress adjourned Friday without approving a routine stop-gap funding measure amid partisan acrimony.


    More than 4,000 FAA workers, 1,000 of them in the Washington region, and tens of thousands of airport construction workers under FAA contract faced immediate furlough. The nation’s air travel system will not be affected, with air traffic controllers remaining on the job and airline operations continuing as normal.

    She was able to competently pass the routine, mundane bills that keep the country running.

    Or do you consider the FAA a Socialist plot?

    Like the budgets she never wrote? Or maybe you mean how she had to pass legislation in order to know what was in it? Sure, Boehner is a boob, no doubt, but this woman is completely corrupt.

    the republican stupidity has become so entrenched that they have no shred of integrity left.


    I find myself not even wanting to discuss any of these issues with them anymore.

    Its like trying to reason with an insane person who has been on the wrong medication for six months.

    Town Cryer is the worst. Bush was the worst president. Both Republican policies are the worst.

    At least they're consistent. You know what you are getting.
