    The most retarded thing that people can do in regard to a standoff, is to blame either side. A stand-off is a situation in which neither of two opposing groups or forces will make a move until the other one does something, so nothing can happen until one of them gives way. It takes two for a standoff, and the notion that only one of two sides is to blame is batshit crazy.

    RINO is the term for a Republican who puts country above party.

    Why? Because they didn't cave to Trump's bullying? They gave him a compromise bill. He caved to pressure from the right.

    He refused to sign the CR that he was given. Was that a veto?

    The only Americans who defend this shut down are those not directly affected by it.

    NO shit, because ONE BRANCH of CONGRESS won't send them up! (This time, this is what ROUND 3 in the game?)

    Trump actually stated that he was to blame. One of the few times that he's told the truth.

    How many reminders would you like? MOST OF THESE WERE TAKEN DURING THE 'TEAPARTY' PHASE of GOP stupidity...

    Taken in 2010, a T Party demonstration. (Notice the sign in the middle with the FLAG above). One for the 'IRONY file'!

    You should be calling him a liar then, since it takes two for a standoff. If Pelosi OK's his wall money, this beautiful standoff ends. If Trump gives in, this beautiful standoff ends. As much as I would like to give Trump a two thumbs up for the shutdown, I know he cannot deliver this gift without the help of Pelosi.

    It's not up to Pelosi. It's entirely up to Trump. Pelosi can't deliver the votes for a wall. Your focus on her just displays more of the ignorance and paranoia that is about all we see from the right.

    I do like how Trump claims he could call this an emergency if he wanted to. So up until now it isn't an emergency (due to the fact that he hasn't actually called it one) but he could call it one when the mood strikes him.

    What a lying hypocritical POS.

    Pelosi, the MSM, Schumer operate as a collective. They are a single entity.
