President Obama delivered more remarks on the shutdown/spending/crisis governance war today. His remarks were, as usual, full of hyperbole and spin. Just to cherry pick a couple of passages:

All of this is entirely preventable if the House chooses to do what the Senate has already done, and that’s the simple act of funding our government without making extraneous and controversial demands in the process, the same way other Congresses have for more than 200 years.

The Senate could also pass the House version and Obama could find a pen and sign it. He could agree to delay the parts of his law that haven’t already been delayed. But that’s not gonna happen.

Other congresses have also fought over spending and attached conditions to debt ceiling hikes, going all the way back to the time of Eisenhower. Democrat congresses shut the government down under Reagan, about a dozen times. You’re not supposed to know any of that, though. Obama caters exclusively to low-information voters (and dishonest hacks in the media) with such remarks.

Unfortunately, right now House Republicans continue to tie funding of the government to ideological demands like limiting a woman’s access to contraception or delaying the Affordable Care Act, all to save face after making some impossible promises to the extreme right wing of their party.

No one anywhere is talking about “limiting a woman’s access to contraception” via the spending fight or even tearing down Obamacare. No one. Anywhere. Whether Obamacare stays or gets scrapped, contraception will be available at Walgreens and wherever else it was available before 2010. Obama’s law forces millions of Americans to fund things that violate their religious consciences, for the sake of making already cheap contraception “free” so that young female voters will think they’re getting goodies from Daddy O and young male voters will be able to care even less about the possible consequences of casual sex. Some people have a problem with the government’s new role in all this. Some people also have a problem with Obamacare funding about 115,000 abortions per year.

Some of the people who have a problem with all this include these nuns in Little Sisters of the Poor. Because the Obamacare mandate forces them to pay for contraception and abortion, they’re now enemies of the state. They’re having to waste time and money to go to court just to preserve the rights they enjoyed unfettered before the community organizer decided to make the federal government an instrument of shakedown and oppression.

Obama is perfectly aware of the nuances of all this. He knows all the angles. He is perfectly aware of the offenses he is fostering and the challenge he is presenting to the freedom of religion. He chooses to lie about it and make people on the other side angry. That’s his schtick.

What can you do with such a dishonest man occupying the Oval Office?

A dishonest administration, with their dishonest Party apparatchiks will now go to the dishonest media...and tell a pack of lies.

How is this day any different from any other day in the radical leftist world of deceit?

We actually get to pay less for the privilege of being abused.

Shut what down? A machine with working parts so encrusted with corruption that they no longer function? Let it rust and die. To quote our most notable politician: "What difference at this point does it make?" The IRS, Benghazi, the NSA, election fraud as well as the complete destruction of our way of life are done and done and there's no going back. The future is all there is and I think it's called progressivism. Of course to be progressive is to be atavistic and tribal, so welcome to the world of the future. They used to call it hell.

There's another (probably dozens actually, but take this one) more obnoxious, ill-conceived statement that jumped out at me from Obambus' screed, that is, "Fund the government because it IS the economy".

El Wrongo.

Some senior Republicans including Ted Cruz and their advisers have been BOUGHT.

The obvious strategy for Republicans in October 2013 is to MAKE OBAMA OWN OBAMACARE. See Rules of Radicals - make the adversary live BY ITS OWN RULES.

Ulysses S. Grant also remarked that the best way to defeat a bad law is to enforce it VIGOROUSLY.

After the failure to start a diversionary war in Syria, count on Obama and his minions to stage another "wag the dog" episode in late 2013 or early 2014 to distract low-information voters.

Judging from the rhetoric coming from the Democrats and the White House, Obama has made up his mind that he will never need the support of the Republicans, libertarians or conservatives.

He is working hard to alienate everyone but his diehard supporters.

That's not leadership.

But Obama is so inexperienced, and has been so protected by the press, that he doesn't have a clue.

I've seen this stuff before, on a much smaller scale, with people who have been put in positions beyond their capabilities. It's gonna get ugly.

While Obama may have a sideline involvement, the fight is mainly between the Senate and House. But as they say, the House always wins.

I do think that this time harry reid, and B.O. is getting it all wrong.

The media may be forced because of the number of alternative media to tell us that there was one party saying if we don't get what we want, and we aren't going to compromise we will shut the government down. And this from the people that carved out special exemptions, in violation of the law for themselves.

There was one party that said we don't want to shut down the government, and the media is what going to blame them, and now tell us that compromise is wrong??????
