    After years of fighting Al Qaeda, it seems the Republicans have decided if they can't beat 'em, may as well join 'em.
    Emulating the terrorists' actions, the House Republicans have decided to hold the President — and 300 million Americans — hostage as they demand tax cuts for the wealthy and spending cuts for everyone else, in exchange for agreeing to raise the debt ceiling by just enough to avoid the United States government from defaulting on its debt.
    That's right: Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner and his Tea Party caucus are driving a jumbo-jet 747 into the world's tallest economy, and no one on the right-wing seems to give a damn.
    Perhaps someone should educate the Tea Party on the basics of American government. I suppose I can lay out the very basic realities for the Tea Party. Here is the short version.
    Dear Tea Party,

    You only control one part of one branch of government. The system is set up to separate powers between the various branches, and power in the legislative branch is further divided between the House and the Senate.

    When you control ONLY the House of Representatives, as you do now, and the other party controls the Senate and the White House, you have to do something called "negotiate". Dictionary.com gives a simple definition. No pictures, sadly, but the words are short enough that even the Arizona tea party members can get the gist of it.

    "Negotiate: to deal or bargain with another or others, as in the preparation of a treaty or contract or in preliminaries to a business deal." In other words, negotiation involves some give and take; you get some, but not all, of what you want. Somewhere, in the middle of what the other parties want and what you want is the end result.

    "The war is about ready to begin. The corruption of the Republican Party is so openly manifest that the only solution to ridding this country of scum like them to to start fighting.

    There appears to be no other choice. They are bringing it upon their own rotten selves.

    Take it to the streets!"

    I'm hearing this everywhere I go. The Republicans are trying to push the country into a civil war. Personally, I and my 16 sons are prepared to defend our houses, but not much more.

    Is this a serious thread?

    It's hard to tell any more with all the hysterics.

    Geez. I knew liberals weren't giving us their "A" game any more, but if THIS is the best they can do, I don't know why they're even showing up at the stadium at this point.

    Generic Republican Candidate 48% vs Obama 42%

    Obama would lose to any republican if elections were held today.
