Nobraina againproves what sort of despicable person he is.

Who has more justification to speak out against gun violence than someone who's life was destroyed by a gun??

Your stupidity borders on true insanity.

However, it is the job of Congress to pass the bills. Obama does not have a vote.
The House is passing legislation.

The Senate, not so much.

Obama should make his best deal now, because conditions will be even less favorable after 2014 elections.

If he was scheduled to go there and changed his schedule due to their declaration then your argument may have some merit, until then you're just grasping at straws and spouting your ignorance from the rooftops.

Actually, you would have loved O'Reilly the other night.

He disagrees with the Iraq War and said we could have taken Saddam out without having lost so much blood and treasure.

He also said we should never be involved in any country going forward unless they pose a direct threat to our own security.

Sounded a lot like you.

How stupid is Paul Ryan?

Paul Ryan wants to keep Obama's savings from Medicare & use them to "save" Medicare.

A good deal of Obama's Medicare savings stem from cuts to some providers such as hospitals.

Hospitals said that was OK because Obama was sending them 30 million new paying customers.

Dumbass Ryan just ended that aspect - no 30 million new paying customers..

Paul Ryan is a f*cking moron. Keep him talking & Republicans will keep losing.

Ryan was the reason Romney lost. & he will be the reasons many more Republicans will lose in 2014.

Funny how you fail to mention Don Young, R- Alaska.

Fair and balanced?? You're as bad as FAUX!!

""WASHINGTON -- The House of Representatives Ethics Committee is investigating Alaska Republican Rep. Don Young over allegations of wrongly taking gifts, using campaign funds for personal purposes and lying to federal officials.

The ethics committee said Tuesday that it was creating an investigative subcommittee to determine whether Young broke the law or House rules. The decision to move forward with an investigation follows an initial probe by the ethics panel in which it reviewed evidence against Young.

Young declined a request for an interview to discuss the allegations.

"We have no comment at this time," Young spokesman Michael Anderson said, adding that Young has cooperated with investigators and will continue to do so.

The allegations are that Young "or persons acting on his behalf improperly obtained, received or accepted gifts, improperly used official resources or campaign funds for personal purposes, failed to report certain gifts on his annual financial disclosure statements and made false statements to federal officials."

Corruption investigations have dogged Young for years. At one point, the Justice Department drew up a draft indictment that included the synopsis that “Donald Young, in his capacity as congressman of Alaska, accepted and expected things of value (trips, meals, golf, etc.) from lobbyists, and in exchange he would provide them with official actions (meetings, letters, legislation)." The indictment wasn’t used, and Young has not been charged.

The FBI had Young under investigation for at least four years. That inquiry concluded with a 2010 memo. "It was determined that there was not evidence beyond a reasonable doubt to ultimately convict Congressman Young," the memo said.

The Justice Department appears to still have an interest in Young.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is standing behind Rep. Robert Andrews (D-N.J.) despite calls for the veteran lawmaker to relinquish his leadership post while he is investigated on ethics charges.
Pelosi and other members of the Democratic leadership, including Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra (Calif.), backed Andrews on Wednesday as he battles charges of using campaign funds for family trips.
In 2012, the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) released a report charging Andrews with tapping tens of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to pay for a 2011 trip to a wedding in Scotland and multiple jaunts to Los Angeles with his daughters.
The OCE is an outside panel made up of former lawmakers and legal experts. It referred the case to the House Ethics Committee last year, citing “substantial reason to believe that he improperly used congressional campaign and Leadership PAC funds for personal use.”
Andrews has argued the trips were political because the groom in the Scotland wedding and his daughters were volunteer campaign aides.
OCE sharply disagreed, stating that the House Democrat “engaged in no political activity, gave no political speeches, raised no campaign funds and did not discuss his campaign.”
The OCE, which does not have subpoena power, also said Andrews failed to provide investigators with his congressional and campaign calendars and supplied credit card statements “after making significant redactions.”

Mass. sheriff apologizes for Obama assassination ‘satire’ after getting death threats

A Republican sheriff in Massachusetts says that he is now getting death threats after using “political satire” to joke that President Barack Obama should be assassinated.

At a breakfast event over the weekend, Plymouth County Sheriff Joseph McDonald had told about 100 Republicans that Abraham Lincoln had appeared to Obama in a dream and had told him to go to the theater where the former president was shot in the head.

But when McDonald spoke to WCVB on Wednesday, he was no longer in a joking mood.

Things have taken a very sinister turn,” the sheriff said.“I’ve received all kinds of hate emails, phone messages and voice mails, many of them physically threatening me, my family.”

“To the extend that some individuals seem to be able to separate satire from reality, if I have offended them, you know, I’m sorry for that,” he added.“I’m sincerely sorry for that.”

Thank you for that.

The House legislation passed is so unAmerican and regressive it helped Obama win re-election.

Especially Ryan's budget.

Keep up the good work, Hillary will appreciate it when she wins in 2016!!
