"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Funny.  I am not baffled in the least.  This is the guy who decided he'd rather get a --- we all know what -- than attend to his duties as CIC at the moment our Libyan ambassador came under attack.  Why would anyone be baffled by his behavior now?

Even the usual tools are finding it difficult to support their president...

It's what I meant that we're dealing with an opposition that is essentially a Kamikaze pilot.

They don't give a fig if the government closes down.....as long as people suffer and as long as the criminal enterprise....make that a treasonous enterprise known as the mainstream media continues to cover for him.

In fact, he probably gets sexually aroused at the thought of Americans getting angry at Washington.

For criminy sake, it's obvious the Dems want the government to "shut down." It's their only hope for 2014.

I don't think Obama knows how to negotiate. Has he ever?  Being known as a great orator is also a lie because he can barely speak in sentences without a teleprompter and someone writing the speech.

Let's face it.  Obama is a community organizer.  He's good at rallying the younger generation and that's why he speaks at the colleges. He's comfortable criticizing the republicans and that's about it.  He has no substance what-so-ever.

Nothing baffling about it! It's Obama's MO and has been for a long time. Even before he became president he voted "present" on anything remotely controversial in the senate!
