100% the reason for Nancy's political stunt in suggesting a "postponement" of the SOTU.

Obama declared ISIS 'contained' the day before Paris attack

On Thursday, President Barack Obama declared in an interview that ISIS had been "contained," asserting that the terror cell had been stalled in Iraq and Syria.

The next day, ISIS claimed responsibility for one of the worst terror attacks in European history, shattering what had been a growing sense of momentum in the global fight against extremists and driving home the frightening ability of ISIS to inspire and possibly coordinate attacks outside their power base in Iraq and in Syria.

No thank you. While I feel for their loss I don't think an emotional argument helps us decide what's best for our country, and I certainly wouldn't watch anything put on by Hannity.

If you're afraid of illegal immigrants because you think they will kill you I suggest some counseling by someone who's familiar with reality and who will acquaint you with same. Hannity won't tell you the truth, but I suppose that's not as important as the fact that his message is politically palatable. Enjoy your ignorance.

Yeah, they'll be twice as effective as those women trump brought to the debate to shame Clinton.

If you're going to try to rebut my post, you really shouldn't edit out the inconvenient parts that invalidate your "point" (I apply the term loosely). It's dishonest and makes you look like a liar. But you've done this before, haven't you?

You purposely edited out this part of my post...I wonder why:

If he's so desperate to distract from his complete ineptitude that he's using grieving families as political props, I guess the Dems should invite the families of the 4 Americans who just gave their lives for our country, right?

That is exactly what he is doing by not allowing the bills passed in the House to come to a vote.

Once again. Congress does not need the president to enact law.

I know you can't be that woefully ignorant of the reality of what's happening, so stop pretending.

The best way for this to end for everyone involved is for a few grown up Republican Senators to have a little talk with the "Turtle" and convince him that the good of the country is more important than any possible impact on his re-election chance next year (at this point, he might even gain support)...if he doesn't go for that, he gets the embarrassment of an override. His choice.

This is where we miss adults like John McCain...

Actually, no. The SoTU Address is one of the most extensive and expensive security events. Postponing it makes sense.

CBS News reports:
Stocks are up more than 12 percent since shutdown began

...Wall Street seems to have a message for the feds: Stay shut.

Major U.S. stock indexes are up more than 12 percent since Dec. 24, the first day of the shutdown that markets were open.

News that the U.S. and China were considering dropping trade barriers sent the major market indexes even higher Friday afternoon, but stocks have been rising since the shutdown began.

The S&P 500 index is up 2.3 percent this week. The blue-chip Dow Jones is up 3.2 percent since Monday, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq has gained 3.9 percent.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets ... cN#image=1
A Reuters/Ipsos poll reports that Thirty-seven percent said they have not been affected by the shutdown, and 25 percent said they do not know.

So 62% aren't affected enough to even notice the shutdown. Sorry Wabash.

BTW, I heard that federal workers are overwhelmingly Democrats. :-"

Polls keep giving Donald Trump bad news. The latest is The Hill-HarrisX poll. Their numbers show that Republicans are growing more confident in blaming Democrats for the shutdown, and Democrats are growing more confident in blaming Republicans. That's not surprising, and is exactly what we would expect. The bad news for the President is in the Independent column, where, since December 30, 7% of folks have gone from blaming both sides to solely blaming Trump and the GOP for the shutdown. That means that 46% of independents now point the finger at the White House and the GOP, 35% at both sides, and only 17% solely at the Democrats. Among the voting public as a whole, given the shift among independents and the fact that there are more Democrats than Republicans, 49% of voters solely blame Trump/the GOP, 24% blame both sides, and 26% solely blame the Democrats. Put another way, about three-quarters of voters assign at least part of the blame to the red team, and voters are twice as likely to point the finger solely at Trump and the Republicans than solely at the Democrats.
