Hope the president is having a good time in Hawaii.
Waiting one more day to sign that bill that was so important to him wasn't as important as getting the heck out of D.C. to get back to his vacation first.
My head sometimes feels like it's spinning.
How can anyone - even liberals - defend this kind of arrogant disconnect?
A lot of vacations just went out the window yesterday for a lot of Americans.
You're out of your mind

Your precious Democrats are just as responsible for this mess as much as anyone.
Your precious Democrats pushed for entitlements and resisted any restraint for decades.
Your precious Democrats pushed for bad mortgage loans and resisted reining in Fannie and Freddie more than anyone.
The time for blaming anyone else but Democrats has long passed.
Now it's time to place blame squarely where it belongs.
And that is at your doorstep.
Oh NOW you want to be bi-partisan? Oh no sister... we had Nothing to do with that. BUSH and His V.P. gets all the credit. See, you people want to hold the current president liable for All of this mess, but you can't put ALL the mess where it belongs. Such hypocrites! I heard absolutely not ONE single person say one harsh word when the war mongers were in office. The Dixie Chics were the only white people I heard of that called them out, and their lives were threatened by you rednecks because they told the truth. White people and the truth don't mix. But they didn't get the memo.

Excuse me, every single president and congress are responsible for the fiscal cliff, its not my debt its theirs.
The US government should be issuing currency not the federal reserve.
If obummer was a real leader then he would be issuing debt free greenbacks like Lincoln.

If Bush had left to finish his vacation before signing a major piece of legislation that Congress convened to pass on New Year's Day at the 11th hour, and I said the same thing about him, would I still be out of my mind?

If any president did that, I'd feel the same way.

If Bush had done that, you would too.

Be honest.

Just listen to yourself. Don't you get enough welfare? Now you want free money? smh and you people wanna talk about Blacks and welfare. OMG!

Do you use credit cards? Take some responsiblity for your contribution to the debt problems. All of you are responsible, now you want to give it to the Government? Everytime you use that credit card, you are spending money you haven't earned sister. But I know...I know...it's Obama's fault! Wake up to the real world darling.

You must think you are pretty important. Well, news flash! Frankly my dear Carol, I don't give a damn who you blame. You are irrelevant and so is your blame game!

You and your opinion doesn't matter to anyone. It doesn't change anything. so What Ever!

If anyone believes in the power of prayer, now is the time to start praying. Pray that America will rediscover its once-held values of freedom and independence and find its moral compass again.

Right now, the future is out of our hands.

Be honest.
Republican House of Representatives seems difficult to deal with, ask Gov. Christies who had a few words on the subject.
