    Bonehead’s law suits could not have come a moment sooner. It is like a gift from Heaven. In addition to there being no basis for it, the lawsuit, which is centered on the fact that President Obama delayed the implementation of part of the Affordable Care Act, highlights the hypocrisy of those who have been trying to repeal the ACA since its inception. Most importantly, the lawsuit highlights the GOP dependence on make believe distractions to deflect our attention from their record and lack of vision. They are not the party of no, they are the party of nothing. A bunch of empty suits whose purpose in life is to defend and advance the interests of their donors at the expense of most Americans. Fortunately for us, their bizarre statements, the tactics they use to remain viable, and their absolute lack of vision are the best components of our 2014 midterm election strategy.

      Out of this terrific post, my favorite passage: “They are not the party of no, they are the party of nothing.”

          Yes, that was inspired. I hope you do not insist on royalties, because I will like to use that phrase in the future. I will am always keen to supplement my arsenal of barbs for our Repub (non) friends.

      Even Barney Frank had this to say about Obamacare, from the Huffington Post.

        Paulyz, the GOP isn’t suing to stop Obamacare. They are suing because he isn’t implementing all of it fast enough. This from the party who voted to repeal it 41 times and failed 41 times.

          And new they were going to fail, but billed the taxpayers over a million a shot to promote their hateful (non) agenda.

        Actually, the article does not accuse Obama very much of factual lies, as much as it highlights the lack of retraint that Obama shown when he touted the ACA. Of course, I will admit that you may have a small point, but as always, you schmoes have to stretch the truth yourselves.

        I have respect for Frank, but he is not quite on target. Obama should have been right, but the INSURANCE COMPANIES threw a wrench in that. The INSURANCE COMPANIES cancelled the policies, and most of those involved, did not need to be cancelled, but merely converted to conform to the rules. So, the point is rather cosmetic, as Frank is really saying Obama should have kept his mouth shut. There is a world of difference between what the article says, and how you want to use it.

        Scandal . . . anyone?

    Bring on the lawsuit. For one thing the Republicans cannot show where they have been harmed which in itself is a requirement for standing in a lawsuit. Second the Democrats will turn the lawsuit against them and will use it as a huge fundraiser just like they did the impeachment. Third the Democrats after it is dismissed will bludgeon the Republicans over how much this frivolous suit cost the American taxpayers. All this from the party who shouts about the debt and President Obama’s spending.

      I would much rather they spend money on the refugee children at the border than this ridiculous lawsuit.

      • Russell Byrd

        Oh my, spend it on children? I suppose you may have noticed, and it has been the historical trend since the death of Lincoln, that the Rumpbuggercons NEVER spend money on living, breathing, human beings. They spend it on “things” and otherwise just hoard it away so it benefits no one else.

        The party of the fetus, literally hates children. Whether they be red, brown, black, yellow, and to a large extent, white. BUT, they love the unborn, and they love the lash. Punishments appear to be orgasmic to true radical wingers.
