No, I am not confused, because; whomever; sits in the Oval Office has the power of veto. I never stated, that; Obama could appropriate money, however; he can veto spending.

So, my question to you Pappy. Does the President have the power of veto? Furthermore; can he veto spending bills, yes; he most certainly can. He can veto, the whole bill or line item veto.

However; this Administration can't even complete a budget to put in front of the House and Senate, much less; agree on a budget for approval? Therefore; there is nothing to veto. So, they're consistently behind the ball and passing emergency, stop - gap legislation to keep essential, government functions, funded. You think they're really doing, something, too. Meanwhile; money is being bilked and siphoned from each bill and distributed to legislative constituents, which; only drive the National Debt, even further into the red.

So, like a good Liberal, you keep thinking, I am the dumbass in the room. Meanwhile, go stand in a Welfare Line or a Public Health Department and take a good look at our future, here in the good ole, U.S.A.

Hope you like what you see?

Give us your take on this story, Pappy. "Obama issued a memorandum to the State and Defense departments Monday advising them of his directive to use the $50 million" to assist France.

He will reply with some "off subject", hippie, liberal bullshit, that; makes sense, to nobody.

He is a typical "lost" liberal drone, that; just wants to bitch and blame, instead of identifying and debating the real issues.

Another issue, instead of compromising and solving the problem, the Obama Administration, issued a statement today, stipulating that beef prices would soar, due to; FDA inspectors being furloughed.

Instead of managing government and forming a solution, his answer was, blame Congressional Republicans. However; the White House will not budge on their "wants", notice, I did not say "needs".

However; any other time, Democrats would cry foul, saying we need the FDA, however; when the money runs out, due to political meandering and positioning, nobody, gives a shit.

Their argument is ridiculous and the results are even more ridiculous. However; I am man enough to admit, the Republicans are just as much to blame as the Democrats. But, this is about a President and his leadership skills, on a scale of 1 - 100, he ranks about 2 in my book.

The United States is the largest arms dealer in the world, get a grip.

Additionally, you, like a good liberal; side - stepped every question and automatically; reverted to bitching about Reagan and Iran Contra.

You're a typical liberal, Pappy!

No matter how many facts, I throw on the table and no matter, the countless times, I disprove your argument, you will not budge from your 5th grade politics.

So, keep rambling on about Reagan, Nixon and all the other "past" presidents. One of these days, you may correct your mild retardation and realize, history is history and you should learn from history. However; you're hell - bent on repeating history, so; you're a lost cause.

Confused, you sem to be even more confused than ever. that s just part of the Reagan myth created just for republicans that want to forget the past history of Reagan. You also seeem to want to forget what is exactly the tuth of what is a created republican myth. But as you mentioned we are the largest gun dealer in the world, how correct you are a bout guns. Our goverment is the largest perveyor of guns in the world, even large than Russia. Our goverment even kept Iran well supplied with arms during the Irag-Iran war besides selling to Iran missliles as well as fighter jet parts to the very planes we supplied to the Shah of Iran during the Irag---Iran war. Why we even sold enough eggs to Irag shipping them through the sea ports of their neighbor to cook the an omlet the size of Irag, including the cheese during that war. WE used up many dictators who were used as allies and then threw them to the wolves when we though we no longer had use for them further ondown the lin of time when the clock ran out on their use. Ever ask yourself how and why the SHAH of Iran came to power ? Just do a little googling and you should find the answer--but to cut it short it invlved OIL. But is a part of our historical history of dealing and putting dictators in power for reasons of a few well connected corpotations who lost a supply of an oil source.Very interesting reading in that subject--and unconnected to the Reagan Myth. HAVE A NICE DAY CONFUSION AND GOD BLESS ONE AND ALL. p.s. CONFUSION, IF YOU READ THE TRUE HISTORY OF OR NATION YOU WILL FIND THAT HISTORY IS NOT JUST REPEATING IT SELF BUT HAS NEVER CHANGD AS IT JUST KEEPS ON DOING THE SMAE THING IN THE WORLD AND TO THE VERY FOLKS THAT LOVE OUR COURNTRY AND AHVE SACRIFICES LIFE, LIMB AND TRAUMA FOR OUR COUNTRY. YUET IT CONTINUES TO TAKE SO MUCH AWAY FROM THSOE VERY SAME PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF THOSE WHO HOLD SWAY OVER THE DECISIONS MADE IN THE NAME OF THE VERY PEOPL THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO REPRESENT, YET HEAR NAUGHT AS THEIR VOICE RINGS OUT IN THE SILENCE.

cONFUSION, HAVE YOU NOTICED WHAT THE POPLE THINKS OF CONGRESS--CONGRESS HAS A LIKEABILITY IN ITS WIRK OF A MEASELY 15 PERCENT AND AN UNLIKEABILITY OF 85 PERCENT. aN THERE IS NO DIFFERENTIAL TREATMENT IN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REPUBLICANS NOR DEMOCRATS. tHE WHOLE CONGRESS NEEDS TO BE FIRED AND IT IS IN THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE TO DO SO. THEY DO NOT NEED TERM LIMITS JUST VOTE THE BUMS OUT.

Another part of that forgotten Reagan Myth is that Reagan was the first president to sign into law to allow a sequester. And the first sequester law to appear befoire the supreme court. that sequester billl was deemed illlegal by the court. Just a little bit of history that is being repeated agin in our time

Let us continue the Reagan myth as it really happened. While running for election for president Reagan told the people the he was going to cut the deficit. But the first thing he done was cut the taxes and it cost the goverment upwards of 740 billion dollars in lost revenue. Reagan promised to cut the debt but instead trippled the debt we owed. Then folks guess what, he raised the debt 11 times. Cause the debt to tripple. then Reagan, and no republican will be caught telling the folks about him rraising the taxes 11 time on you and me. He had to raise taxes that many times to avert a financial disaster. Yes that debt of Reagans rose to nearly 3 trillion dollars for the first time in our nations history. More than all teh previous presidents before him. Can you believe it, that is waht the republican supply side economic done to our nation. Just a little bit of supply side republican economics history did not work then , nor has it worked since then. The REAGAN MYTH CINTINUES ON.

Reagaan ran up such a high debt every fewwwww months the congress had to raise the debt ceiling 17 times..
so the deby under Reagan set a new record. Yep, he trippled the debt he promised the people he was going to cut in half. Seems Republcians have a tendency to make false claims whie running for office then forget what they say once in office. Heck, come to think of it, can you really put any faith in a politician doing what they make claims of doing, but have no intentions of doing.

Reagan was not a myth. He was a real person and I am glad his memory lives on. He was a true patriot - so much unlike Obama. I noticed this morning that Obama is going on a fund-raising trip to raise $50 million for struggling democrats. What a laugh. Liberals has been trying to convince us that it is the republicans that are in trouble.

The only patriot he was was created in the grade B movies he made----the best of which he was in a movie starring a chimp--the chimp was a very good performer, he never missed his lines. Even G Daddy Bush said REaganonomics was Voodoo economics. Done a tax cut once entering the white house and had to raise taxs numerous times to pay for the spending he done and to correct the lack of tax revenue to fund the goverment. And the debt ceiling had to be raised numerous times to keep the goverment from runniing out of funds. Now tell me this did not happpen!!

You don't have any problem with Obama raising taxes and spending and the lack of tax revenue because of unemployment caused by Obama's policies and raising the debt ceiling. Why do you have a problem with Reagan doing the same but to a lesser degree?

Sunshine, the taxes that were so called raised were the FICA taxes which are for medicare and social security. With thsie taxes put back in place it makes these two programs more stable. And I noticed you never mention the subsidies that corporations get for movign to a city--for so called job creation. Those subsidies come right out of state city and county tax payers pockets. And you never hearo f how much each job cost the tax payers of that locality. And the billions in subsidies that oil companies get from the tax payer, and yet with the billions in profits il companies make do not pay a dime in federal income taxes. And the tax loop holes for corporations keep growing and mean while the owrkers wages keep becomiing less and less. And it forgot to mention the wealthy keep getting richer, do they not.
