The whiner and Chief out blaming Republicans again demonstrating his ineptness to Lead!! The president has the latitude to pick and choose where and what to Cut but he chooses to play Politics … Good grief, the entire sequester would have reduced last year’s deficit from $1.33 trillion to $1.24 trillion. A fraction of a fraction!!

Why does Bob Woodward get to lie—twice!—and still be Bob Woodward?
Excellent point!

Woodward is prime target for an Obama drone attack.

......don't forget the Republicans get the blame in all the polls!

George Bush administration gave us the 2008 stock market crash as voters remembered in the 2012 election

Only one Republican candidate for president gained a majority of the popular vote in the last 20 years.

There was too much greed in this country before the crisis. I was convinced it would be our undoing. As it turns out, I was right.
The golden opportunity to reprioritize our values came and went. Instead the pendulum swung completely in the opposite direction.
If greed is one end of the spectrum, then lack of incentive is the other which is just as dangerous.
There is a happy medium. We can only hope we find it before we go too far the other way.

Funny!

Uncle Poodle Patrick blind to the facts.

The unemployment rate in California, with sky-high taxes, is 9.8%.

Sooner or later, the public will tire of a rotten economy and lame excuses.

More like Woodward is being used as an example for anyone in the White House steno pool (press corps) who dares to report independently.

Woodward is a good reporter.
He and Bernstein did Not bring down Nixon.
More of an inside the government operation.
Senator Goldwater told him it was time to go

So WE, the people, are no longer governing OURSELVES?

No question this is what we are witnessing because half the nation no longer believes this and elected the same leaders who promise them everything and deliver nothing.

The question is, do YOU no longer believe this?

Jerry Brown is in the midst of a political meltdown and doesn't know if he's coming or going. California is the model of what the nation should avoid at all costs.

Japan drives 4 big trucks 13 feet apart at highway speed!

No big deal right? Well only the first one in the convoy has a human driver. The other 3 follow the lead truck. All 4 could be driven by robot control.

Watergate took more than two years to unravel, and Nixon was re-elected during the scandal.

History might repeat itself.

Democrat gerrymandering under reapportionment did not help.

California Democrats have super-majority in both houses of legislature, so can do whatever they want. Can't blame anyone else for their failures, unless they act like Obama.

California voters are sheep, just like the rest of the Obamabots.

Jerry Brown is busy building a bullet train between nowhere and nowhere.
