so reads the headline; however the irony is that scandals running amok within the administration is the reality today.

the very people that foment the issues naturally want to move on, get passed this. get on to more important things to the American people.

yet if you believe a smidgin of what the interest polls report, the so-called American people could give a rip about these shenanigans.

and why should they ... the administration's out of control, congress is out of control and the economy is out of control and there isn't a d..n thing the people can do about it except ride it out.

i know how the folks in Moore, OK felt during the twister.

I think we should all divorce ourselves from the government that has been created and create a knew one of the people by the people and for the people.

We've created a society that is more concerned with what laws some little brat named Justin Beiber is breaking than our own government.

How many times have you seen a common citizen interviewed and they can't even tell you who the governor of their own state is, let alone understand the dangers inherent in a government entity like the IRS targeting American citizens?

And of course progressivism thrives off the ignorant.

Facts such as unemployment numbers, national debt prove you wrong. I know you live in a fantasy where facts have no place.

As for the debt & deficit issues, we've been over that ad nauseum here. However I know you're dense so I'll repeat it for you again. The Obama Administration has been the lowest spending president since Reagan. Secondly, any debt accumulated since Obama took office is largely attributable to your man. Unemployment numbers are what they are, also because of your party's Get off your lazy a$$ and check it out, then get back to me.

Current unemployment, GDP growth, home price figures here.

Interesting that you claim Obama is the lowest spending president since Reagan, however our debt has soared. I can tell you that this is not in any way possible and completely untrue.

Just a little proof that you liberals really don't think. Something so obvious that shows people are playing with the numbers just because they know there are stupid people like you out there who will believe anything they say.

You might want to look at what is in the rest of those bills before you jump to any conclusions. Oh that's right you are way too much of an incompetent ignorant POS to figure that out.

You can believe all the garbage and spin you want. The bottom line is the fact that the debt has gone from around 10.6 trillion to 16.8 trillion. What exactly about this don't you get?

There is no amount of graphs and charts that you can show someone with a triple digit IQ that will change this fact. Sorry, did I just prove you don't have a triple digit IQ, oh well we all knew that already.

Before you go and talk about the 09 budget being inherited from republicans you should know that budget was passed with 0 support from republicans.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/03/us/politics...

"House Republicans, who offered budget alternatives featuring a domestic spending freeze and broad tax cuts, accused Democrats of encouraging runaway spending that would bloat the government, worsen the economy and pile government debt on future generations."

Gee do you think they were right all along?

Can you explain how this happens when the dems hold the majority?

Just so you know I do have a trailer. I rent out my house and live in a trailer. It is called "Glamping."
