Washington whiplash: "It's like Mogadishu on the Potomac"

That's how Democratic strategist Paul Begala describes the Congressional Republican caucus. This after the House dropped plans to vote on a budget deal, with time running out before the debt ceiling deadline. Anderson took a look at what lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are saying about the impasse and spoke to Begala and Republican consultant Alex Castellanos


It is hard to explain just how politicians created the situation we are currently in. But Alex Castellanos got creative trying. He compared the budget battle to "bunny sex." That led to a very colorful discussion on the budget that also included Paul Begala and Dean Clancy, the Vice President of Public Policy for Freedom Works.

    When I hear negative comments on people who you have on your interviews express thoughts that are negative, It sickens me. Here are some examples: The president cannot and would no negotiate with Boehner, not true!, He tried more than what the news media give him credit for! Along with our president taking senators and house members of the Republican party to dinner. Look @ the facts The President can veto,send our military to war , his powers are limited. Recently you seen Cruz by his actions and statements. Look at Boehner, no vote on a CR. before all this finally getting resolved. Look at the additional cuts in spending that the Democrats agreed to in addition to the original cuts that the republican first proposed. Both party's have there flaws!, and there are no winners. But respect the office of the president of the United States. The last time we went threw this the president
    gave in to there demands. Enough of this nonsense, Talk positive of our President. Look at what he has tried to accomplish.

    The Government Shutdown is "Bullying". There are laws against this. I am ashamed of our government for allowing the U.S. to come to this. You call yourselves "Leaders"?????
