think the Republicans ought to organize volunteers to handle the White House tours immediately to keep it open. Where are the Repubican leaders. We have got to start fighting back. Obama is starting to make mistakes and the public is not going to like all his manure he's doing


I told my fiancée that Obama isn't going to make it 4 years. He's going to be impeached well before then

Impeached for what exactly? People throw impeached around way too much without giving specific reasons why?

I do think however that the President has overreached or overplayed his hand on the sequester. The weakness was shown on Friday when he was in the Rose Garden backtracking on the outrageous claims about the consequences of the sequester.

He was basically trying to force Republicans to vote for 2 tax raises within 3 months without them getting any spending cuts in return. Obama was basically trying to force Boehner and McConnell into ending their political careers. I think round 1 went to the White House and round 2 was a win for Republicans. The President spent way too much political capital on this fight and that's why his numbers are sagging down into the mid 40's.

This is why I think we get the grand bargain the next go round with both sides claiming victory on spending cuts and revenue. Tax Reform might actually have a good chance of passing and the GOP should be talking Tax Reform as the best way to deal with income inequality. Both sides have been beaten up pretty bad over the last few months and the political will for a prolonged fight is fading IMO.

I'm disappointed. I expected some entertaining rhetoric spinning this. I guess the bull shite is starting to get too deep for even you to pull up your pant-leg.

After these years of unfair abuse heaped on the man I'm tickled that he's getting under your skin.

Rex, are you in favor of the administrations policy that they can kill anyone they suspect of being a terrorist with drone strikes. I would hope that under any administration (Dem or or Rep.) we would find common ground on civil liberties.

What a crock of shite. The tours are run by volunteers.

BHO is the biggest liar we have had as president in a long, long time.

That might be the plan but I don't think it's the present policy. Congress has to OK it first.

Real cuts. Not the useless political grandstanding that has evidently become another new normal.

Not mine personally. Expected events cause no emotional response.

Huh?

First off, who is "you guys"?

Second, I'm not against the cuts. I'm against the stupidity of making this minuscule amount of money (relative to the overall amount our government spends) seem like the end of the freaking world. Planes won't fall out of the sky. Terrorists won't destroy the world.

Hell, they don't even need to furlough anyone. Anyone who believes otherwise is a fricking moron. Sorry about the cursing, but I couldn't think of a better adjective. Its late.

It is all political grandstanding, and frankly, it is quite embarrassing.

Sad thing is, stupidity such as this has become so common that it really isn't surprising anymore.

And the cuts are still more money spent tomorrow than today

So we are being played big time

The new Moderate majority will have to explain these events to us conservatives

Bull shite. A "Presidential finding" written on one piece of paper by Oboe will make it "legal" to do an end around on the Fifth.

Like i said, before his 4 years are up, i told my fiancee that he will likely be impeached. I just believe with him trying to push forth as much of his radical agenda as possible before he's out, he will break the law. I can't give you a specific, because it is just a feeling.

Why are you guys upset about this and flyovers? ANY cut the government makes is a good cut. We all have said cuts are needed over and over and now that there are cuts most of you are mad? You can saw that we should cut MORE but don't be upset over these cuts. WTF is wrong with you guys?
