Anyone of you Moonbts want to debate the Whie House isn't a mausoleum for bunch of so called Democrats who are actually fascists?
First it was Woodward, a media icon and now another prominent d repected indivdul has come forward:
Another member of the Washington political media stepped forward Thursday to claim he was threatened by the Obama White House, shortly after the White House denied reports that an adviser threatened famed Watergate journalist Bob Woodward.
The latest claim comes from Lanny Davis, who served as counsel to former President Bill Clinton and later went on to write a column for The Washington Times. In a radio interview on WMAL, Davis said that a "senior Obama White House official" once called his editor at the Times and said that if the paper continued to run his columns, "his reporters would lose their credentials."

Then there's Obama's former press secretary, Robert Gibbs.

"When I went through the process of becoming press secretary," Gibbs said, "one of the things, one of the first things they told me was,‘You’re not even to acknowledge the drone program. You’re not even to discuss that it exists.'”

Well folks Obama have the authority to choose what is and is not cut!!The question should beÂ…. will Obama step up and finally show Leadership or will he continue to play Politics with Americans LifeÂ’s?
He will continue the politics of personal destruction. He is a Liberal what else do you expect?

He never had leadership skills!

Unless it is to kill someone, including AMERICANS oversea and soon, by drones, domestic.

Liberals love to laud their education but when reading their posts it appears most have no more than the basic skills achieved from a GED.(Error you made here is referred to as a dangling participle; do you know how to correct it?)

Unfortunately Dave you don't appear to even have this level of education must less be a candidate for the school board (oh wait .. in the liberal world you don't need an education you only need to profess one.)(You have failed to set off the parenthetical element, noun in direct address, in commas. Also, the ellipses consists of three dots and no spaces...Want to tell us about your extensive conservative education again, Doofus?

Be careful, your actions tend to speak so loudly that we can't hear a word you are saying.

You assume Liberals can see the hypocrisy. Well, they don't. They are engaged in the politics of personal destruction.
Sarah Palin is one of the most brightness person in America! She dominates the English language so well that even by accidents she creates new bonafide grammatically correct words:
REFUDIATE
Which after liberal experts analyze it with the intention to ridicule her they end up admitting in defeat that the word was correctly crafted and valid under the grammatical construct of words!!!
It's quite obvious liberals don't see their own hypocrisy. Look at all they get away with.

With automatic budget cuts set to kick in tomorrow, here's a really short version of today's episode of Sequester Theater: In the Senate, Democrats and Republicans will hold dueling votes on plans to avert the sequester. The Democratic plan will likely get more than 50 votes, and the Republican plan certainly won't. Despite getting a majority, the Democratic plan will likely fail, however—unless Republicans decide not to filibuster it. In the House, nothing will happen.
Here's an even shorter version: Congress is completely dysfunctional. The only people who are doing anything remotely serious to stop the sequester are Senate Democrats, but they can't even put pressure on House Republicans because a handful of old-timers blocked filibuster reform, giving Senate Republicans veto power.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/02/28/1190...
"silly"
What is the problem with a sequester? The government will still be spending 83 billion more than they did last year. Even the administration is backing off their tales of gloom and doom.
Speaking of senate veto power, why will the senate led by democrat Harry Reid not bring up more than 30 bills passed by the house? Reid is afraid the bills will pass?Why has the senate under democrat Reid not passed a budget in over 1400 days?
Peace

Oh, sweetie, there's a perfectly simple explanation for all that! That darned old liberal media went to journalism school and learned a bunch of rules and shit, many of which are designed to protect the "mark" from unnecessary embarrassment or harassment. A code of conduct if you will. That's why we turned our heads when Dan Rather tripped up while collecting the very real dirt on l'il George when he got arrested in Alabama for drugs and coulodn't show up for National Guard duty cause he was out pickin' up trash on the highway (all true, but would've required the "tough" questions.)
Now when you go to journalism school in the basement of the mormon church... you are - reasonably enough - not bound by any such strictures. Quite the contrary you're bound only by your three wives and your holy underwear.

GOP lawmakers press Napolitano over decision to release illegal immigrants

By Jordy Yager - 02/28/13 11:03 AM ET

The top Republicans on the Senate and House Judiciary Committees are questioning Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano about the release this week of hundreds of illegal immigrants being held in detention centers.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (Va.), in a letter to Napolitano, said the “poorly reasoned” decision to transfer the illegal immigrants to a supervised release program was evidence she hadn’t effectively prepared for the automatic sequester cuts set to take effect Friday. The lawmakers charged that Napolitano was violating her department’s main security mission.


“While the administration is clearly embarking on a campaign to scare the public and Congress about the realities of budget reductions, it is clear that you have not planned adequately for the March 1 sequestration,” said Grassley and Goodlatte in the letter dated Feb. 27 and released Thursday morning.

“Simply blaming budget reductions as a means to turn a blind eye toward the national security of the American people is a dangerous plan and one that calls into question the department’s preparations for sequestration.”

The White House and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have said they did not know beforehand about the move by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which targeted only illegal immigrants deemed to be a low public-safety risk. ICE said the mass release was in preparation for the $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts, widely expected to go into effect on March 1, which would limit the number of detainees ICE could pay to house.
