And you find fault with that? Isn't the Senate supposed to pass something since it's been over three years and they haven't come up with anything?
The House has passed bill after bill to try and solve these problems. The Senate refuses to vote on any of them or produce any solutions of their own.
The Republicans have compromised twice. They are perfectly justified to wait for the promises of this administration to be fulfilled after making those compromises.
But you find fault with the Republicans? How deep is your denial?
Boehner won't do anything unless the Senate Does.

Republicans filibuster to prevent the Senate from doing something.

Furthermore, passing bills that include tearing down the ACA & the Financial reform Law are just blowing smoke up your butt. Boehner knows that won't go anywhere in the Senate.

Whenever the Republicans in the House quit passing bills that narrow abortion rights, attempt to repeal parts of the ACA, Water down Financial institution reforms, etc, then maybe they will be serious about helping this country.

The last 4 years the Republicans did absolutely NOTHING to help solve the problems they created.

How f*cking dumb can you get to listen to Paul Ryan complain about spending when he was in Congress under Bush voting yes yes yes to spending his ass off.

You people are just dumber than sh*t.

Exactly, so enough about the damn budget. Republicans and Democrats will never get together and pass a balanced budget so there is no point getting all excited about it.

He didn't have to come right out and use the word "lie" in the language.
Woodward uses synonyms in his book that means "lie" as well as in every interview.
If you heard the entire interview, you'd be embarrassed splitting such a thin hair.
It's like saying I don't like using the word "hate" but would rather say "distrust", "loathe" and "despise" instead. The meaning is still crystal clear.
guess i better use some conditioner...

Former White House adviser and current MSNBC analyst David Axelrod on Friday pressed Bob Woodward on whether he really felt threatened by Obama administration official Gene Sperling.

"The headline in the Washington Post, your newspaper, was Woodward says that he was threatened by the White House," Axelrod said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"But I never have. Come on. You know that. No," Woodward said.

(The headline on the Washington Post actually read: "Woodward vs. White House: Washington at its weirdest.")

"They got the impression, from what you said, that you felt you were being threatened," Axelrod continued. "And you just read to the Politico one line from that email. And when the full emails came out they were as cordial as can be. His email was cordial, and your response was cordial. So if you felt threatened, why didn't you say to Gene, don't threaten me?

"No, I did not feel threatened," Woodward responded. "What I have said, David, and come on, you are making, putting words in my mouth. I said I don't think this is the way to operate. And you and I have had many discussions. You've never said to me, Oh, you're going to regret doing that, am I correct?"

"Yes, but this was a specific discussion about a specific point you had raised," Axelrod said. "It seemed like Gene was, in that email, certainly was very, very polite in the way that he pushed back on that. I'm not putting words in your mouth, Bob. It's your newspaper that said you said you were threatened."

if you check the Hannity forums you can probably find a new convoluted explanation for that interview. just make sure to stay away from the Obama love/the sequester is a Tea Party victory thread.

Carol!

It may be very hard to resist a shopping spree again today, especially if you are out with your friends today. You'll want to have what everyone else is buying, but try to control the impulse to spend. In fact, you might try leaving your credit cards at home. Just because something is on sale doesn't mean you need it! If you do spend, be sure to give what items you no longer use to the needy.

Fox Deceptively Edits Obama Remarks On Sequestration To Manufacture Backtracking Claim

Fox & Friends removed Obama's assertion that it's possible that many Americans may not feel the effects of the cuts for several weeks to manufacture an accusation that Obama has backtracked from previous claims about the harmful effects of the sequestration.

Alternately, an insecure woman is one who spends her time trying to intimidate men through guilt. Also, Catholic women I realize... and I refuse to define what constitutes a secure woman, but I'm pretty sure it's one who's comfortable in her own skein.
