That doesn't make you anymore intelligent then the absence of minds you're preaching to, sorry nut jobs!

I have news, the House has a Republican majority now & must approve all spending. All you need in the Senate is enough to filibuster everything.

Show me where there were 51 or more Democrats in the US Senate in 2007 & 2008.

The Republicans' Governor Problem

Republicans, when pushing back on the claim that their party is in dire straits, are fond of pointing out that the party holds 30 governorships. But there are increasing strains between Republican governors and national conservatives -- because the heterodoxy that has made it possible for Republican leaders to thrive at the state level is not what conservatives want.

I'm not just talking about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Seven other governors, many of them with high national profiles, have declared their intentions to accept Medicaid expansion funds. None of these governors are on the Conservative Political Action Conference agenda either. Beyond that group of eight, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell cut a deal with Democrats creating a commission that may lead to Medicaid expansion -- in order to gather their support for his transportation funding reform, which conservatives also hate because it raises taxes.

This means a swath of Republican governors once considered rising stars in the party -- Christie, McDonnell, New Mexico's Susana Martinez, Ohio's John Kasich, Florida's Rick Scott -- are now on the outs with conservatives.

But with the exception of Scott, all these governors are polling strongly in their home states. Kasich just scored his highest job approval rating ever following his decision to expand Medicaid in Ohio. These governors aren't randomly trying to annoy conservatives; they are breaking from conservatives when conservatives oppose policies that are popular and broadly beneficial to their states.

confused would be those who think that an unpopular ideology and it's related unpopular 'policies' are what's best for the American people.

"In politics, few talents are so richly rewarded as the ability to convince parasites that they are victims. Welfare states on both sides of the Atlantic have discovered that largess to losers does not reduce their hostility to society, but only increased it. Far from producing gratitude, generosity is seen as an admission of guilt, and the reparations as inadequate compensations for injustices - leading to worsening behavior by the recipients."

Is this president finally realizing what it takes to be a leader?

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Signaling he might be ready to explore a compromise to end automatic spending cuts that began late Friday, Obama mentioned reforming entitlement programs in calls with lawmakers from both parties on Saturday afternoon.

House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, interviewed on NBC's "Meet the Press," said he "absolutely" would do whatever it takes to keep the government operating.

...Raising taxes again is the compromise. Guess entitlement reforms would have to be pretty significant if that's the case.
