Can you please post this government website?
Thanks.
Because all I heard in the President's State of the Union Address was "we need to invest", new term for "spend", over and over and over again.
I find it very interesting that certain people didn't bellyache about the government spending money when George W. Bush was president. But now that we have made history by electing our first black president, they are howling everyday about him spending money trying to undo what Bush did.

O’Reilly Pounces On Robert Gibbs For Admitting He Lied On Drones, Clashes With Bob Beckel

O’Reilly then brought on Beckel, who immediately dismissed O’Reilly’s assertion that this is in any way “devastating” to the Obama administration. Beckel argued that Gibbs merely said he was told not to publicly talk about a top-secret operation. O’Reilly was surprised at how much Beckel sounded like “a right-wing guy” yelling about how the public doesn’t have a right to know, drawing a comparison to Vietnam.

Osama Bin Laden's son in law and one of chief organizers of 9/11 WTC attack has been captured in Jordan by US Intel. He was passing through on his way from Turkey to Kuwait.

In other news the final cardinal has arrived in Rome. Cardinal Jean-Baptiste Pham Minh Man arrived today from Vietnam to join with the 114 others who will soon be selecting the new Pope.
I wonder if Pham brought any nuoc mam along.

Okay, let's use some logic.
If the drone program existed and the president told Gibbs to deny it existed, what would that be called based on your understanding of a lie?
After six years of kowtowing to the White House, Congress is finally challenging President Bush’s campaign to trample all legal and constitutional restraints on his power.

Congressional committees have issued subpoenas for documents and witnesses in two major cases and have asked for the first — and likely not the last — criminal investigation of an executive branch official who might have lied to Congress.

Predictably, the White House is claiming executive privilege and refusing to cooperate with the legitimate Congressional investigations, one springing from Mr. Bush’s decision to spy on Americans without a warrant and the other from the purge of United States attorneys.

A low-level flunky like the press secretary should not have knowledge of any programs that must be hidden from the public.

Better to be uninformed than to be forced to lie.

McCain, Graham rebuke Sen. Paul for filibuster over drones

The senator "should know better," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said, arguing that some of the concerns raised about drone missile attacks on Americans -- like Paul's suggestion that the U.S. could have killed Jane Fonda when she went to North Vietnam -- were "ridiculous."

"To my Republican colleagues, I don't remember any of you coming down here suggesting that President Bush was going to kill anybody with a drone," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in remarks on the Senate floor.

Graham displayed a sign that showed the number of Americans killed in the U.S. by Al Qaeda -- 2,958 -- versus the number killed by drones, which is zero.

Your reasoing is quite racist. oscumma spent more money in one term than any president in history, including two termers. Our credit is tanking. The economy is the most unstable I've ever seen in decades. Much worse than the Carter years. The current president is unwilling to compromise on spending which has caused this sequester. Rather than take cuts from all the wasteful areas in government, oscumma chooses to impact people with the intention it will hurt Republicans. The fact this scumbag is intentionally hurting American citizens is despicable. Race has absolutely nothing to do with it. Liberals, including the scumbag prez has made it very clear they are exploiting the race card for their own personal gain.

House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday applauded President Obama's outreach to Republicans, which included dinner with a group of Republican Senators Wednesday night and an upcoming visit with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), calling it a "hopeful sign" during a press conference Thursday.

He said he expected that sequestration and the president's upcoming trip to the Middle East would probably be discussed when Obama visits with House Republicans, likely to take place sometime next week.

Boehner said he did not feel like Obama is "going around me" by meeting with other Republicans.

You're too stupid to understand insults, That's what allows you to come here and behave as a complete airhead!!

And you're too ignorant to know that the Model T Ford was followed by the Model A Ford.

Proof positive of your overwhelming ignorance!!

""In 1908, Ford offered an improved car that became the Model T. Then, in 1928, Ford started the alphabet again with the Model A to symbolize that the new Model A had no connection to the Model T."

So, The Model T begat the Model A.

And I'm still laughing at your stupidity!!

Or are you still stupidly insisting that Ford built no cars after 1928, the lie that Leo trapped you in last evening??

We all know you're more than dumb enough to do so!!

Give it up, Dood. You're dumber than a stump and everyone sees it but you!!
