"“Rahm Emmanuel’s basic view was that he thought this was a crazy waste of political capital. That was a signal to the rest of the bureaucracy,‘Don’t expose yourself on this,’” one person involved in the discussions said.“There was more that could be done. But once it became clear that the White House was no longer investing, everyone got the message.”"

"In an interview Thursday with The Daily Beast, Moran said that when fight was on, the White House was nowhere to be found.“They left all of us twisting in the wind,” he said.“Rightly or wrongly, they gave us a very clear impression,‘You’re on your own on this issue.’”"

We already voted on Obamacare & it passed.

Evidently Galt wants to Congress top revote on each & every Law ever passed at least every month.

Wow, won't sh*t get done then.

Notice e how your inane party keeps voting to repeal it yet never came up with any plan to replace it.

Why is that Galt?

Unemployment is at 7.3% and would be a percentage point lower if the republican in the house stop obstructing, trying to repeal Obamacare and pass the jobs bill that the president gave them.
Obamacare hasn't been fully implemented and it's already cut health insurance costs in New York and Calif. People are getting money back from health insurance providers. Even republican governor Jan Brewer, hardly a fan President Obama, s on board and is implementing the program.
The NSA is doing it's job. Keeping us safe.
Keep up now.
"Last week, the state of California claimed that its version of Obamacare’s health insurance exchange would actually reduce premiums.“These rates are way below the worst-case gloom-and-doom scenarios we have heard,” boasted Peter Lee, executive director of the California exchange. But the data that Lee released tells a different story: Obamacare, in fact, will increase individual-market premiums in California by as much as 146 percent.One of the most serious flaws with Obamacare is that its blizzard of regulations and mandates drives up the cost of insurance for people who buy it on their own."

The national deficit was nowhere near $17 trillion in 2008.
Obama gets a pass for the first few years after the crisis. But because he was more concerned about passing Obamacare, he is responsible for the deficit tripling under his watch and slowing down the economy and job growth because of it.
Back in 2010, CBS News reported estimates put the deficit near $20 trillion by 2016 and almost $26 trillion by 2020.

Can you do math?'Bush 43 created 4.899 trillion dollars of national debt in 8 years! Obama created 4.939 trillion in national debt in less than 4 years!' President Obama gets credit for only raising the national debt 0.040 in 4 years over what George W Bush did in raising the debt over 8 years from a Clinton surplus to more than $4 trillion dollars .

SANAA, Yemen -- Yemen's president has apologized to President Barack Obama for the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, the Yemeni capital, by a mob angry over an anti-Islam film.
The U.S. Embassy in Yemen says nobody was harmed in Thursday's assault. "All embassy personnel are safe and accounted for," spokesman Lou Fintor said.
President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi also ordered an investigation into the attack. Several hundred protesters stormed the embassy's compound, brought down the U.S. flag in the courtyard, burned it and replaced it with a black, Islamist banner.

Same warning issued then-SEVEN MONTHS Prior to any stupid lame video---as the warning that is issued now.

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the high security threat level in Yemen due to terrorist activities and civil unrest. The Department urges U.S. citizens not to travel to Yemen.
U.S. citizens currently in Yemen should depart. The U.S. Embassy in Sana'a remains a restricted staffing post. As staff levels at the embassy are restricted, our ability to assist U.S. citizens in an emergency remains limited and may be further constrained by the fluid security situation. This supersedes the Travel Warning for Yemen issued on March 27, 2012, to provide updated information regarding the security situation in Yemen.

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the high security threat level in Yemen due to terrorist activities and civil unrest. The Department urges U.S. citizens to defer travel to Yemen and those U.S. citizens currently living in Yemen to depart immediately.
On August 6, 2013, the Department of State ordered the departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel from Yemen due to the continued potential for terrorist attacks.
U.S. citizens currently in Yemen should depart. As staff levels at the Embassy are restricted, our ability to assist U.S. citizens in an emergency and provide routine consular services remains limited and may be further constrained by the fluid security situation.

Why weren't the protocals of procedure of WARNINGS followed in BENGHAZI, rather than just blatantly Ignored????
Foreign Policy FAILURE.
Could it have been that the State Department warning was issued after Benghazi. That it was in fact in response to Benghazi and other events?????

Stop blaming the Republicans for every thing.
The FREEDMAN BUREAU
The bureau was run by the War Department, and its first and most important commissioner was General O.O. Howard, a Civil War hero sympathetic to blacks. The Bureau's task was to help the Southern blacks and whites make the transition from slavery to freedom.
Their responsibilities included introducing a system of free labor, overseeing some 3,000 schools for freedpersons, settling disputes and enforcing contracts between the usually white landowners and their black labor force, and securing justice for blacks in state courts. The Bureau was renewed by a Congressional bill in 1866 but was vetoed by President Andrew Johnson, who thought it was unconstitutional. Johnson was opposed to having the federal government secure black rights. Congress passed the bill over his veto. Southern whites were basically opposed to blacks having any rights at all, and the Bureau lacked military force to back up its authority as the army had been quickly disbanded and most of the soldiers assigned to the Western frontier.
he Bureau was able to accomplish some of its goals, especially in the field of education. It established a number of colleges and training schools for blacks, including Howard University (named for General Howard) and Hampton Institute.
Media Feature - Watch the Video
Learn about General O'Howard,
head of the Freedmen's Bureau.
Howard believed that the mission of the Bureau was a temporary one, wanting to avoid black dependency on the federal agency. He firmly believed that African Americans should obtain all their rights as quickly as possible, but failed to see that because of Southern white hostility long-term support was necessary for them to do so. The Bureau also failed to bring together whites and blacks in the South because it lacked the means to do so. It needed support from Southern and Northern politicians and received little help from either. Its staff was cut significantly by 1869 and it ceased operations in 1872.
I didn't blame Republicans for anything.

If you don't understand the discussion don't join it.

Sorry, my first reply was inadequate. Economies evolve, those currently engaged in our evolving economy are doing quite well. In fact, we're experiencing an entrepreneurial boom fueled by the internet and recent tech advances. We're also experiencing a boom in other segments like energy and entertainment. There are going to be casualties whenever there are fundamental shifts in an economy. If you spent your life making widgets on an assembly line and now those widgets are being made in Mexico then you are a casualty. Trying to throttle the evolution of the economy to avoid those casualties is counterproductive. Either you're on the bus or your not.
