It's another strategy in this "game" this president is playing to make Republicans look bad instead of trying to win for America.
If you think about it, it really is pretty sick.

We're broke, no more tours, the White House lost 1 million in funding, better to cancel tours than fire people. This is the mentality of the Republicans, they are not happy unless someone gets a pink slip. You people are awful.

<quoted text>You're still dumb carol, but you working up to moran status.(BTW, tours is plural = they're) " The reason for the cancellations, an official with the Secret Service told NBC News, is because the Uniformed Division Officers normally tasked with securing the tours will be reassigned to other security posts at the White House. The move will reduce overtime costs and may reduce the number of furloughs the Secret Service could potentially face, according to the official.
Generally speaking, this is hardly scandalous. The news will no doubt disappoint some tourists, and there's arguably a symbolic significance, but when evaluating the sequester's effects, this seems fairly minor. Indeed, if scrapping tours helps prevent Secret Service furloughs, it's a no-brainer."
Carol and her ilk won't be happy unless government workers are fired, then they'll rejoice. Sick people.

Your response is pure BS and so is your source. Unfortunately in your mind we still have due process. In your mind it is okay for an individual to claim someone is a subversive and off him. You to would be screaming out loud if a republican offered this option, rightfully so.

what's not to like? no troops need sent. cost less. and no fake wars required. i love it.

and BTW....more....

Today, we apparently need pages on pages of Justice Department legalese (“Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen Who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al-Qa’ida or an Associated Force”) to justify killing Americans who have become senior jihadist terrorists and who are trying to kill as many innocent Americans as possible.

Of course, it’s no small irony that the candidate who once railed against the Bush administration’s so-called imperial presidency in the war on terror now finds himself under attack by his own base (and a few on the right) for his “secret” program of targeted killings. However, there is nothing like reality—in this case, the global, nebulous network of al Qaeda and allied terrorists—to bring home to a sitting president his fundamental constitutional responsibility to protect the lives and property of his fellow citizens.

and that would be neo-con headquarters.

want to hear what Republicans congressmen have to say about it?

though you probably don't.

You would be okay if a Republican president had the authority to drop drones on "terrorists" on our own soil?
Try and focus on the question. Tay?
Get a life Carol, it's like a joke topic created to fool nutjobs like you.

The Payne Stewart jet out of Sun Jet Aviation in Sanford Fl was being chased by USAF fighters and would have been shot down prior to leaving US airspace.

Fortunately it ran out of fuel and crashed on it's own before standard AF procedure came into play. That was 1999 Carol__drones were yet a dream.

You're not the real Carol are you?

that's the thing dave, I already did in the first post...
your unsupported (and unsupportable) contention that hospitals get less but not doctors when PROVIDERS take a cut was no rebuttle...
but here is more:
"Medicaid is a broken, costly system due to its unusual structure. The federal government splits the cost of Medicaid with each state through a matching formula. The federal government pays on average 57 cents of every dollar spent on Medicaid. In exchange, the federal government puts numerous restrictions on states on who must be covered and how the program must be run.
This complex, ineffective setup means that states have their hands tied in running the program. As a result, states are forced to slash payments to providers, doctors and hospitals, to control for the rapid growth in Medicaid. Medicaid pays about 55% of what private insurance does; Medicare pays 75%. When payments to doctors are reduced, doctors decide not to accept Medicaid patients. A recent study in the journal Health Affairs estimates that 30% of doctors do not accept new Medicaid patients. In some states, the numbers is much higher—it’s 60% in New Jersey."
Read more: http://americansforprosperity.org/legislative...
Hospitals get paid by Medicare for their services & doctors bill separately.

The ACA does not reduce payments to doctors.

I keep telling you & you keep being stupid. Keep reading your right wing sources who don't know that doctor payments are not reduced & you will cintinue to get dumber.

The defendant is on his third attorney and his wife has been charged with perjury. And the case is just now beginning to take shape.
The only liberal in sight is the defense attorney O'Mara.
Doesn't surprise me. No one wants to be associated with his (IMO) not guilty verdict. Shts gonna hit the fan.

Michelle Malkin - Mock Dance Video of Michelle Obama
Michelle Malkin is getting a lot of backlash after making a parody video of Michelle Obama dancing with Jimmy Fallon this week on his late night show. Malkin appears in the video like you’ve never seen her before, dressed similar to Michelle Obama complete with the new hair cut. According to Fox News on Thursday Feb. 28, Michelle Obama is raising concerns as she is becoming more like a celebrity than a first lady with all her recent TV appearances.
The First Lady was with Big Bird in a PSA, on Jimmy Fallon, she appeared at the Oscars and she is on a Dr. Oz show that’s yet to air; this was all in one week. Many are asking if there is another celebrity rising from inside the Obama family, as the President does pretty well for himself in that department already.
Michelle Malkin had a name for every dance move that she mocked of Michele Obama’s. Names like the “The Grab Your Wallet,”“The Raise the Debt Ceiling” and “The Golfing Man,” were just a few of the moves she made while imitating Michelle Obama. Malkin finished it off with “The Sequester Shake.”
http://thpatriots.blogspot.com/2013/03/michel...
That was truly the most pitiful thing I have ever seen.

My God you right whiners are so GD pathetic.

What, you are so jealous that Michele Obama is popular??? Childhood obesity, evidently a right wing family trait, is not healthy.

The left loves double standards. One for themselves, and another for others. That's why you cannot reason with these morons. Even Obama himself is incapable of having honest dialog. D.C. is dysfunctional becauuse of the Democrats, yet they try and pin it on others. The Democrats have morphed into radical leftists. It's the reason I am a "former" Democrat. I don't even recognize what is left of the Democrat Party. They seem more like hard core socialists from a third world impoverished island to me.

Some of them won't be happy until Barack is cleaning toilets and Michelle is taking in laundry to keep the three rooms of the White House they're now forced to live in from freezing...in other words, some of these sick people will NEVER be happy.
