President Obama on Monday warned congressional Republicans again that he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling, saying Washington must increase the limit to pay its bills and that such brinksmanship would be “absurd” and “irresponsible.”

“The issue here is whether Washington will pay its bills,” Obama said in the final press conference of his first term.“We are not a deadbeat nation.”

The president’s comments opened the roughly 30-minute White House question-and-answer session with reporters that focused largely on the debt ceiling and Obama’s gun-control plans in the aftermath of last month’s mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., in which 26 were killed.

Obama, who vowed following the Dec. 14 massacre to curb gun violence, repeated his promise.

“If there is a step we can take that will save even one child from what happened in Newtown, we should take that step,” said the president, who is expected to get strong opposition from gun rights groups should he submit legislation to Congress, as expected.

Obama also suggested such groups are publicizing what appears to be strong turnouts at gun shows as “an effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government is about to take all of your guns.”

If, however, we can just convince ourselves to head back the way we came a few exits we'll find that there's still time to forge a new path forward.

The CIA is long overdue for some serious revamping__the internet exposes that agency's every move. The fkn contractors are coming back from their, cough, secret missions and writing books__creating websites and doing speaking tours. The deceased contractors families are going on FOX and blaming the POTUS for putting their loved ones in danger__LMAO.
Fluent in Arabic is not easy for an American to do, the fkn language defies all known logic. It's dark age jibberish.
I agree; I was watching him speak on CSPAN from April on the use of drones, AlQuaeda, etc., I liked him. I like Hagel and Kerry too; two Viet Nam war vets, interesting choices.
One would think that the ex agents would be prohibited from speaking about their experiences; I just don't get it.

Will they let it happen? Stop social security checks? military paychecks?

So here are some FACTS you will ignore. In 1945 the southern KKK dixiecrats were angry with the Democratic party and president truman, so they LEFT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY and went running into the open arms of the republican party.....where they remain today!

Hows that for facts?
Let me try again:

Who founded the KKK?

Who created it? Who invented it? Who gave life to it?

Changing subject will not save you!!!

<quoted text>You mean when he said that Barack Obama had some kind of problem with the white culture after the President publicly stated the Cambridge police acted "stupidly" in the case of Professor Gates' arrest before he even knew all the facts?

Or when he said his grandmother was a "typical white person" who reacted negatively to black people she didn't know on the street?

Or stereotyped a segment of the population as clinging to their guns and Bibles because of their ignorace about people who are different from them?

Which one?

Yep, old Eed is in a class of his own when it comes to being a moron. He is the very kind of dumb azz that should be prevented from having or buying firearms. The sad part and the one that is indictitive of most idiots is that he has no clue, there would be mountains of evidence to back up his insanity plee. His daily diatribe of monotonous nonsense is to be pitied and laughed at. I'm sure the home and rubber room that he is confined to has an adequate supply of sleeping pills along with hallucinigenic drugs. Good old fat deadhead "RIGHTIE".
