Republicans trying to blame Obama for the sequester.
Now it is shown the Republicans planned the sequester before Obama favored it.
Republicans forget that they passed it before Obama signed it.
the proof: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/02...
Once again the Republicans put their party ahead of our country.
We have ten days. Where is Congress???????
On vacation.
The sequester is about the size of the money pissed away on Sandy relief.

Big deal.

Live with it.

Why the Liberal Media is a ‘Joke’ their First Tough Question after not having access to the President ‘ Did You Beat Tiger’ If Bush had played a Professional Golfer, I assure you the First Question wouldn’t have been ‘ Did You Win’ they would Pepper him about the victims of hurricane Sandy!! Their first question- Mr. President … Four months after Hurricane Sandy, Jersey Shore still a wasteland or Mr. President N Korea still acting provocative toward US etc. now we understand why the Low IQ Liberal Voter is the Least Inform!!

Former Powell chief of staff ‘damn sure the Bush administration cooked the books’ on Iraq
Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, said Monday on MSNBC that he’s “damn sure the Bush administration cooked the books” when it came to pushing for the invasion of Iraq
Raw Story ( http://s.tt/1zXVz )
Wilkerson has been an outspoken critic of BushCo since Powell left, maybe even before. He was a contributor to Vanity Fair's "Oral History of the Bush White House" and many many more essays critical of the Bush era.

RINOs need to take back the Republican Party
RINO-hunting, the long-popular political sport that morphed in 2008 into a sort of hysteria-driven obsession, lately has become a suicide mission.
RINO, of course, refers to Republicans In Name Only and is the pejorative term used against those who fail to march in lockstep with the so-called conservative base. I used “so-called” because, though the hard-right faction of the party tends to be viewed as The Base, this isn’t necessarily so. My guess is there are now more RINOs than those who, though evangelical in their zeal, are poison to their party’s ability to win national elections.

Winning with a RINO isn't worth the effort.

Home invaders always bring along innocent bystanders. Dumbfuck.

Lets instead defend with a assault type rifle & fire off 30 rounds with a range of over a mile.

Would you be talking about the RINOs who are Democrats wearing a Republican costume?
You complain about Republicans, but the Republicans you complain about are really Democrats wearing a RINO costume.
Get your story straight, dufus.
I am talking about members of the Republican Party. This would include the dumbass Tea Party members.
