The objection to Obamacare isn't about health care either. It's about bringing down Obama. If it wasn't this it'd be something else.
How long did it take to come up with such a Stupid Response? Obama/Obamacare equal destruction next time come up with an Objective argument other than the same Old Liberal argument he’s Black!!

Monday's military photo-op involving a low-flying airliner over New York City was:
A huge mistake. The military should have cleared it with NYC officials first.
Just a misunderstanding. I'm relieved to find out it wasn't a terrorist attack.
Breaking News update: President Barack Obama says it was a mistake for one of his official airplanes to be sent zooming past the New York City skyline for a publicity photo shoot.
Obama said Tuesday: "It was a mistake, as was stated ... and it will not happen again."
Obama commented after reporters asked about the flight as he prepared to meet with FBI Director Robert Mueller at agency headquarters.
On Monday, one of the Boeing 747s used by Obama and an F-16 jet circled the Statue of Liberty at the start of the work day, startling workers in lower Manhattan who feared a nightmarish replay of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The flight was carried out by the Defense Department. The director of the White House military office has apologized for the incident.
Original story below. Check back for more.
Just plane dumb.
A perfect storm of idiocy led to a frightening 9/11 flashback for thousands of New Yorkers Monday when a jumbo jet and an F-16 fighter jet buzzed lower Manhattan without warning.
A "furious" Mayor Bloomberg denounced the dunces who dreamed up the stunt - and the NYPD officials and bureaucrats who never told him about it.
By day's end, an obscure City Hall deputy named Marc Mugnos, who makes $60,000 a year, was taking the fall for not telling Bloomberg that the low-flying planes were coming. He was reprimanded.
But there was plenty of blame to go around.
Louis Caldera, the director of the White House military office who sent Air Force One and the fighter jet on an "aerial photo mission," got slammed by an angry President Obama.
"I approved a mission over New York," Caldera said in a hastily prepared statement. "I apologize and take responsibility for any distress that flight caused."
Obama was not on the flight.
Sources said the chief reason for the panic-inducing flight was to create souvenir pictures of Air Force One flying over the Statue of Liberty to be given out - like a presidential tie clip - to family, friends or supporters.
Air Force One has done flyovers of historic sites and monuments like Mount Rushmore and the Golden Gate Bridge for PR glam shots - at taxpayer expense.

I know what it'll be like, don't even have to imagine. Just have to look at the last time and expect bigger government, wars and more deficits.
Why did spending increase $300 billion once the teabaggers got control of the pursestrings?
2006 2.66 trillion
2007 (last year of a Republican budget) 2.73 trillion (+0.07)
2008 (first year of a Democrat budget) 2.98 trillion (+0.25)
(That was the last budget the US government ever had)
2009 (first year of Obama and no government budget) 3.52 trillion (+0.54 trillion)
2010 (election year, TEA Party is predicted to clobber RINOs and Democrats, RINOs and Democrats reverse course) 3.46 trillion (-0.09 trillion, almost no change)
2011 (Democrat RINO Boehner wins fight against TEA Party) 3.60 trillion (+0.14 trillion)
2012 (election year, TEA Party forces Democrat RINO Boehner to back them) 3.54 trillion (-0.06 trillion)

The key to understanding is Boehner being a Democrat RINO, and saving RINO skins in an election year.
It's that simple. Non-election years Boehner completely capitualtes to the Democrats.

And btw__weren't you on the photo ID bandwagon__claiming how easy it was to get that photo ID?
It took me three trips and about $145 to renew my DL this last time due to e-verify and Rick Scott's desire to double and even
triple certain fees.
I see now that he 's getting close to reelection he's open to reducing those same fees.
Actually, I ended up doing the appointment thingy at the DMV.

You won't be able to make an appointment thingy in clinics and ERs after January 1.

You can renew you DL online. I do it all the time.

Air Force One is maintained and operated by the Presidential Airlift Group, part of the White House Military Office. The Airlift Group was founded in 1944 as the Presidential Pilot Office at the direction of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. For the next 20 years, various propeller driven aircraft served the President. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy became the first President to fly in his own jet aircraft, a modified Boeing 707. Over the years, several other jet aircraft have been used, with the first of the current aircraft being delivered in 1990 during the administration of President George H. W. Bush.

No matter where in the world the President travels, if he flies in an Air Force jet, the plane is called Air Force One. Technically, Air Force One is the call sign of any Air Force aircraft carrying the President. In practice, however, Air Force One is used to refer to one of two highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft, which carry the tail codes 28000 and 29000. The Air Force designation for the aircraft is VC-25A.

So what was it when Republicans took over the purse strings with winning the House? Jan of 2011?
Two years after the Democrats took over Congress would be Jan of 2009, Dumbass. Housing started to slide ion 2006 & had nothing to do with the CRA.
Dodd chose not to run, dipstick.
Do you ever post anything that is the truth?
Congress (used to) pass a budget for the subsequent year, moron. The first Democrat budget year after 2007 is 2008, moron. I'll help you calculate that... naught plus naught is naught....

Your coleagues are saying the housing bubble began to deflate in 2007, dumbass. The economic collapse caused by the Democrats didn't happen until 2008 after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank.

Dodd was too scared to face the electorate. It was a foregone conclusion he was going to get clobbered in a landslide. He ran away and hid from the people.
Thus, the people of Connecticutt ran his sabotaging ass out of office.

Birthers are the absolute dumbest, most ignorant, most uninformed morons on the planet.
The so-called "birthers" want that document shown on the White House website submitted as evidence of Obama's eligibility.
For some reason, Obama's lawyers will say and do anything to avoid having to submit that obviously fraudulent "birth certificate" being shown on the White House website in any case. Now, why would they do that?
Perhaps because they are aware of the fact that knowingly submitting fraudulent evidence will get you bent over in a prison shower?
How about doing what the so-called "birthers" want and submit that document as proof of Obama's eligibility.
If that document is proven legitimate, this case will disappear faster than a male page off Barney Frank's New York hotel balcony.

You continue to prove your ignorance every single time you post. The point was and is that our legislators and their staffs get paid no matter what. If a part of them votes on an issue 32 times, is that the number "silly" gave? they are doing their job. If you had a brain you would realize that "silly" was in effect saying I do not like the bill they were voting on so if they vote on anti "silly" bills they are wasting their time. Now "silly" would be in hog heaven if legislators voted to increase the income tax rates on any family that makes the huge sum of $40,000 per year, but she would be possed off if they voted not do fund nobamakare.
