Who ever could have imagined...

...After Thursday's fiasco, when House leadership had to pull their border crisis response bill, thanks to de fact Speaker Ted Cruz's interference, nominal Speaker Boehner issued a statement on behalf of leadership saying, in part, "There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries." That's a day after they sued President Obama for executive overreach.

Hypocrisy? You bet, say some Republicans.

"Look, you can't say on the one hand that the president is overreaching by acting without legislative authority and direction and then refuse to give him legislative authority and direction in another area," Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), a frequent voice of moderation in the House GOP conference, said on MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown." […]

Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer lambasted House Republicans for the "ridiculous" move on Thursday night.

"It is ridiculous to sue the president on a Wednesday because he oversteps the law, as he has done a dozen times illegally and unconstitutionally," the conservative commentator said on Fox, "and then on a Thursday say that he should overstep the law, contradict the law that passed in 2008 and deal with this himself."

Cole wasn't alone in recognizing the problem here, and that's why Boehner was "mobbed" by members demanding a vote yesterday immediately after the original bill was pulled. Not acting on immigration, and then saying the president could go it alone the day after suing him for doing just that, is even worse than missing a day of vacation. Go figure.

@ syn Christians seem to want to have it both ways. One the one hand, Israelis are Gods 'chosen ones' that can not be defeated in war, but on the other hand, they deserve our support because they have always been punished, kicked around and persecuted.
Israel has a right and duty to defend itself. That's my stand.

Now there is a piece of work. She always made sure she was right next to the aisle during the State of the Union so she could get some face time. And then there was her meltdown when Capital security asked for her identification when she tried to go around the security checkpoint who cares that she was supposed to have her identifying pin on her, How DARE he not recognize her. So of course, she played the race card. AND then we have her on ships trying to break the Gaza blockade imposed by Egypt and Israel. What an embarrassment.
Not only did she want face time, she always poked her repulsive face out for President Bush to kiss her cheek. He probably had to take anti-nausea medicine to get through it.

<quoted text>Let's assume that the children are being used as human shields, does that make it okay to kill them?
Assume????????? What????????
They ARE using those children as shields. They have put the Israelis IN that position. That is how EVIL Hamas is. Hamas HAS to be destroyed. Good grief.
Your ideology is taking away your reasoning.

<quoted text>In response to gens post that Israel "could not be stopped"- I said that I did not care. I do care about children being slaughtered, and do care about the U.S. involvement in the conflict and do care about the long term effects it will have on this country.
Then Hamas HAS to be stopped/destroyed.

A couple of facts to back up your theory of left wing lunatics destroying our country, from an article in the July 28th 2014 issue of Time.
1. Total household net worth is above the 2007 peak due to home price and stocks recovery.
2. Since the housing markets lowest point in early 2012 values are up 25%
3. The U.S. lost nearly 6 million manufacturing jobs from 2000 to 2010. But jobs are coming back to the U. S. With the wage stagnation of the middle class and rising wages in Asia the spread is now getting to a level where companies are returning to the U.S. In many industries the spread is down to 15%
4. Oil production in the U.S. had been declining for the past 40 years. The U.S. is now on track to be the worlds biggest producer by 2015. Another plus is coal power plants are converting to clean burning cheaper natural gas.
5. High School graduation rates have been falling for years, a low point of 60% in many large cities and rural areas, Towns Counties is a little lower if you can believe that. In 2006 the trend reversed and graduation rates are up. A Johns Hopkins study predicts a 90% graduation rate by 2020.
6. The U.S.is seeing a miraculous drop in crime rates. The overall crime rate is down 45% since the peak in 2007. According to FBI numbers since 1991 violent crime is down 36%, nationally and 64% in the largest cities, New York and Los Angeles have fallen even further.
7. Teen pregnancy has fallen to its lowest level in 30 years and down 49% from the peak in 1990. Fewer teens are getting pregnant than at any point since reliable data is available . The same goes for the 20-24 age group. Birth rates for the total population are up for the first time since 2007.
8. Our environment is getting better, carbon emissions are down 10% from 2005 levels. Technology and regulation are the reasons.
Makes one wonder why the tea party says and does the things it does. Are they all liars or just uninformed.
How about posting that link. Your post reads more like an email. If you were able to find that information, it should be VERY easy for you to post the link. Otherwise, this is just left wing BS.
BTW, if you think for a minute that Obama is responsible for this, you are an complete and total idiot.

The post I noted as fiction, had some shreds of truth to it, however, so does most fiction. Cherry picked stats, grasping at straws, to make LWLD's feel better about who they voted for, and the dismal consequences that followed, nothing more to that post whatsoever. It's that simple.

The way Republicans roll...
When a very pregnant Felicia Allen applied for medical leave from her job at Hobby Lobby three years ago, one might think that the company best known for denying its employees insurance coverage of certain contraceptives—on the false grounds that they cause abortions—would show equal concern for helping one of its employees when she learned she was pregnant.
Instead, Allen says the self-professed evangelical Christian arts-and-crafts chain fired her and then tried to prevent her from accessing unemployment benefits.
“They didn’t even want me to come back after having my baby, to provide for it,” she says.
Her allegations—as well as those brought by other former Hobby Lobby employees—call into question the company’s public claims when it comes to protecting life and operating its business with Christian values. Additionally, they highlight a practice by which Hobby Lobby prevents its employees from seeking justice through the courts.
lol You just suck up that left wing propaganda, don't 'cha. Link????? Didn't think so.
If you were a TRULY concerned person, you would be concerned about what that fool you voted for is doing to this country. You are a silly silly boy.

Not that much of a dumbass.
He was able to clean up the mess the last REPUBLICAN president made of this country. He's done it with NO help whatsoever from the Anti-American House of Representative who PREFER the country not improve. He's done that.
Not to mention, he made Boehner and the Republicans look like complete jackasses over this lawsuit and impeachment thing - He completely outwitted them and handed them their tails. They never saw it coming.
So call him a dumbass if you will - it doesn't change the fact that he's taking care of America while the Republicans sit on their ass and do everything they can to try to make America fail.
So! The congressional democrats are NOT going on vacation? lol You are so libroid blind. All you do is blame blame blame. It's not working. It makes Obama look even MORE ineffective....if that's even possible. Obama and those clueless wonders who voted for him are to blame for this. He is not liked and he is getting his comeuppance. THANKS for electing such a loser and punishing our country. Own it. It's YOUR fault.

GOP blocks tax hike on firms moving overseas
WASHINGTON (AP)-- Republican senators blocked an election-year bill Wednesday to limit tax breaks for U.S. companies that move operations overseas.
The bill would have prohibited companies from deducting expenses related to moving their operations to a foreign country. It also would have offered tax credits to companies that move operations to the U.S. from a foreign country.
The Senate voted 54-42 to end debate on the bill, six short of the 60 votes needed to advance it. The White House says President Barack Obama supports the legislation.
"Today in the United States, any time an American company closes a factory or plant in America and moves operations to another country, the American taxpayers pick up part of that moving bill," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. "Frankly, a vote against this bill is a vote against American jobs."
----------
Can the Republicans get any more anti-American? They should be labeled a terrorist group.
Why don't you ask why they moved overseas to being with? While you are at it, check with the unions.
No. Republicans are not anti-American. That's just your liberal HATE from the kookaid.
If the democrats are doing such a great job, why are they so worried about losing their seats in the midterms?

Cleckman is right, business already pays little tax, what we should have done was tax them when the left. Forbes, the magazine for conservative business, owned by a former Republican conservative candidate for President just a few years ago. Big business is and will continue to bring jobs back, because the plan to make the middle class the working poor in this country is working.
You fools can't see the forest for the trees.
You are just too dumb and ignorant for words. Lawdy.
I have asked you before. Will you PLEASE list your NONPARTISAN sites and sources? You seem to think that you have the correct information. That means your sources are 100% nonpartisan. Do share. Thanks.

I submit to you the theory that if humans can't extend compassion and help to little children, that they're not really humans with souls and minds in the first place, devoid of - well - humanity.
It sounds like that's who and what you are though.
Trust me, America has the resources to feed hungry children. We're America, that's what we do. We're not an evil, inhumane bunch of bastards, despite the best efforts of Republicans to turn us into that.
It's YOUR hyperbole that makes the libroids dumb as rocks and silly. Subsititue Democrats for Republicans in your last sentence and you'll have FACT....for once.
