Barack Obama, our next President

The House Republicans produced a budget right after being sworn into office in 2011 if you recall. The Senate Democrats wouldn't even bring it up for a vote.

The Democrat-controlled Congress did not produce a budget for 3 long years. I'm sure you recall that as well.

The Senate Democrats voted against the president's budget - unanimously...almost...99 to 0.

Who knows what they will do. Boehner is a Democrat. So, he will do whatever he can to prevent any cuts to government spending.
There is no reason to hurry this. This can be addressed at any time and any agreement can be made retroactive to the first of the year.
There is some hidden reason why everyone is being led to believe this is an emergency. This is just like when ObamaKare was rushed through without anyone even reading it. Even today nobody knows what's in that law.
The government doesn't have a revenue problem. It has a spending problem. Cut govenment spending first. After government spending is cut, then let's talk about revenue issues... like increasing the number of people paying income taxes.
Any country that lets half the population mooch off the other half won't last long.
The only way to fix the insanity in our government is to have everyone dependent on their decisions. EVERYONE should have to pay income taxes. If everyone paid income taxes, the wouldn't be voting for a bunch of criminal frauds flying a Marxist flag, that's for sure.
22% of the 47% are those 65 and older without enough income to meet the requirements that have been in place for the past 30 years to pay Federal Income Taxes. Damn Moochers.

I started cutting him some slack. Then, I watched the debt ceiling go up and up, and no spending cuts coming from him whatsoever, and lettinug Obama and Holder push him around like he's nothing... when the fact is he's the goddam Speaker of the House. He has the authority to bring the weight of the entire government to bear in any direction he chooses. Yet, he chose to act as if he's impotent.
No spending cuts with Boehner.
Increased debt with Boehner.
No investigation of obvious crimes in the Executive.
Our problems:
Uncontrolled spending.
A debt beyond the ability to pay.
Criminal activity in the Executive.
We need to change the Speaker. If we don't change the Speaker, we have no chance to change anything that's been happening since he became Speaker.
If for no other reason, just the fact, at the request of Nancy Pelosi, he forced the 112th Congress to name him the Speaker for the 113th Congress should be shouting at you that he needs to go.
And nobody told you this happened....
I hear what you're saying. But any Speaker up against a Democrat Senate and a newly elected Democrat president isn't going to be able to do much weight-throwing either.

The Republican party cannot afford being labeled the party of "no" or obstructionists again. That strategy used by the Democrats may have worked the last time. But we have to avoid it all costs this time with another election just next year.

It wouldn't have helped our party if the majority of people would have blamed us if we had gone over the cliff - no matter to what lengths Democrats will go to mislead the American people.

Boehner walks a very thin line between hard-right conservatives and hard-left liberals and the demands of both with the country's best interests hanging in the balance. You should cut him a little slack.
He risks republicans being labeled obstructionists and democrats ending up smelling like a rose.
Which is exactly what the democrats are counting on. He has no choice right now but to compromise.
We have a good chance to come out on top in 2014 and 2016 by playing the democrats' game for a while.
The repubicans succeeded in upping the tax increases. It ain't over til it's over.
Its doubtful it will even come up for a vote under the retarded Hastert Rule.

Because it was her job to verify that intel. She took money from you with the understanding that she would verify intel about Saddam Hussein's WMD program.
What she did was, she falsified the analysis. Valerie Plame was a critical piece in the ploy to keep the UN's oil-for-food scam going. She falsified intel so the 18 UN sanctions being ignored would remain in place, and the oil-for-food scam would continue.
You really aren't too right.

All intel is not verifiable.

If all intel was verifiable then you would not need anyone to verify it.

Bush took intel was was not verified.

Plame did not falsify anything.

Sadam cheated on "oil for food". We knew it & presidents signed off on a lot of it including your hero GW Bush.

Carol, he is the Speaker of the House. He controls the institution that controls all revenue, spending and borrowing. He doesn't need to compromise on anything.
Republicans are a majority in the House.
It's time that majority actually started solving our problems.
We have a spending problem. Solution: cut spending.
It's that simple.
The fiscal cliff cuts spending. Problem solved... well, almost. Spending cuts is poison to the Democrats. And, lo and behold, here we have McConnell and Boehner promoting the Democrat agenda.
NO CUTS... NO DEAL.
Period. End of statement.
It doesn't matter that you absolutely right.

What matters now is Obama and Reid didn't get everything they wanted.

And Republicans aren't going to be blamed - even if it WAS Obama and Reid who couldn't wait to reenact the last scene from Thelma and Louise with both playing their parts respectively.

Semantics.
The Constitution doesn't say anywhere that the government society has a different set of rights than the non-government society.
It is unarguable that every private citizen has every right to possess every weapon any agency in government can possess.
You have to get rid of the Constitution and the concept of civillian government to change that.
That's ok with me. If the police think the only thing they need to protect me is a .22 single-shot crack-barrel rifle, then let that be the case.
Unarguable????

I guess police officers where you live in your imaginary world carry Bushmaster semi automatic rifles with 100 round clips.

The Second Amendment says you have the right to bear arms. Here's your musket. You now bear arms. Now STFU

There's always the weekends. Most rallies took place in the late afternoons the last time.

But it's not going to happen again. It was a one-time phenomenon. Half of the country demanded government accountability and were labeled racists by the other half.

But you're right - real workers can't afford NOT to work.

Freedom to practice one's religion doesn't include the right to force your beliefs on anyone else. Hobby Lobby is attempting to do that by denying coverage for contraceptive for their employees that don't adhere to their employers extreme views. No one is being forced to use contraceptives it's strictly voluntary but under the law must be made available through employer provided insurance.
Contraception that prevents a fertilized egg from implanting can only be considered abortion if you subscribe to the extreme view that a fertilized egg automatically becomes a full fledged human being.
This concept was put to voters in conservative Mississippi in the form of Amendment 26 and was defeated 59 to 41%.

So what's your point? Democrats rejected Obama's budget proposals because an election year was coming up.

Are you defending the Democrats not passing a budget for three years?

Unfortunately for them, they depend on these oil markets.
It would take little effort to use military fore to destroy their oil industry & cripple their economics even further than the sanctions.
But "we don't need no stinkin' domestic continental oil pipe-lines"...as such would only serve purpose in LESS expenditures of human life and limb, to have OUR OWN...and to ell with theirs!
