Another case of Congress having total control over Obama when it's a negative against him. Funny stuff.

Maybe Podesta can figure out a way around them, huh?

And Rubio got bitchslapped__right before he signed up for his and his family's Obamacare policy on the DC exchange. According to some posting here__he'll lose his doctors and be refused admission to America's hospitals.

Boehner shares many traits with Washington liberals...he's as useless to his constituents as tits on a bull and he's a coward. Probably a racist like his buddies Reid and Biden.

You're full of crap as usual Carol. The GOP took a blood oath to block and obstruct any legislation proposed by the White House or the Democrats. Among them;
Tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas- A bill that would have eliminated a tax break that companies get when they ship jobs overseas. Republicans blocked this, allowing companies to keep the tax break they receive when they ship jobs to other countries.
Political Ad disclosure bill- Would have required all donors to political campaigns to reveal themselves. Republicans blocked this, not once but twice.
Subpoena Power for the Committee investigating the BP Oil Spill – Give subpoena power to the independent committee responsible for investigating BP’s roll in the oil spill. Republicans attempted to block this.
The Small Business Jobs Act -would give LOCAL, community banks access to billions of dollars to loan to small businesses. Republicans blocked this, then attempted to block it a second time and failed.
Benefits for Homeless Veterans- Would have expanded benefits to homeless veterans and homeless veterans with children. Republicans blocked this.
Health Care for the 9/11 First Responders who got sick from being at Ground Zero- Would provide billions of dollars in health care to help the 9/11 First Responders who were at Ground Zero on 9/11 and are now sick because of it. Republicans blocked this.
The Jobs Bill- Offsets the payroll tax for 1 year for companies that hire new employees, or people receiving unemployment insurance. Also gives other tax incentives to companies hiring new employees. Republicans attempted to block this.
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act- Pumped billions of dollars into state and local Governments to prevent us from sinking into a second Great Depression. Republicans opposed this but now want to take credit for the parts of it that we know are successful.
Oil Spill Liability- Raises the liability on what companies can be made to pay to clean up after an oil spill. Republicans blocked this.
Immigration Reform- Republican suggested comprehensive immigration reform until Obama supported it. Now they’re rabidly opposed to it and even voted against their own legislation. Republicans blocked this.
Republicans in the House have voted 46 times to defund Obamacare knowing full well that it would go nowhere. Each time they did it cost American taxpayers $1.5 million for a grand total of $69 million wasted.
But go ahead keep living in that delusional alternate universe.
"pdumb"
Please explain the 1.5 million cost for the votes. If they had not voted where would money have been saved? The congress folks would not have been paid? The staffs would not have been paid? The costs for maintaining the infrastructure would not be kept up? Security for the folks would not have been in effect? Face the facts, it costs no more if those in congress hold a vote or not.
We should all thank those with the balls to vote against the reckless spending agenda of president nobama.
I have a question for you, Have you ever seen a tax that you did not support?
Are you pissed because nobama finally is shutting of the aid to the muslim terrorists in Syria? You would love to see him increase payments to the muslim terrorist government in Pakistan?
You would support measures by president nobama to further gut the military, and force more resignations of senior officers?
Food stamp usage is up by 13% you would like to see that grow?
Millions fewer American's are required to pay Federal Income tax, you would like to see that number grow?
Those who own businesses, provide jobs and pay taxes, should pay more taxes?
Why were you not pissed at nobama's stimulus "porkulus" bill that wasted near a trillion dollars?
You believed the president when he said, "If you like your doctor you can keep him. Period"?
You supported the presidents decision to send arms to the Mexican drug cartels that led to American deaths?

You are stretching. Embassy's and Consulates, temporary or not are American soil. You BS does not change that fact.

Oh my gosh you are a brilliant little lib aren't you? How long did you have to think to come up with a response like that? I suspect not long since it's the standard liberal playbook rules to respond to any and all post and arguments from those non-libs out there with either the typical "you're a teabagger" "you're a racist" or of course just call a name and run like you did on the playground back in grade school. Well I will give you kudos though because at least you didn't use the "you're rubber I'm glue" or "I know you are but what am I" that is also typical for your liberal mentality. Hey here's a mindf*ck....I'm not Republican nor am I a tea party member....matter of fact I was a democrat right up until my last license renewal where I changed my party affiliation to I and I actually voted for the liar-in-chief in 2008. Of course I grew up since then!

Your candidates comments concerning women cost at least a few Senate Seats.
Your side's love for assaulting women with vaginal probes, etc., will cost you even more going forward.
The Birth Control issue alone convinces most women that the GOP hates them.
It sure as hell cost Rmoney the Presidential election.
Stick with your Repugnant priorities; insulting women, minorities, gays, Catholics, etc.

1) What you are saying is that those who attacked the consulate left a note saying who they were, why they attacked & when they planned it. How did Obama know when the attack was planned immediately after the attacks? There were riots based on the video in Muslim cities in several countries. Why was it impossible in Benghazi as you claim.
THe President called it a terror attack. You, like you buddy Romney, are evidently too uninformed to know this.
Stating what is known at the time & suggesting what the current thinking is is not a lie when later evidence says otherwise.
Since you yell at ghosts on your TV I can only assume you have a tizzy fit at the local weatherman every time his forecast is not 100% correct.
How the ACA is funded is posted online. I mistakenly assumed you had the ability to look these up yourself. I know how it is funded. You can too. Just look it up.
Healthcare is between you & your doctor. The ACA does not dictate that. The ACA is about better, more affordable access
I have already listed the oil industry subsidies along with all your heroes saying they exist.
If you are so embarrassed that you can't make it without subsidies that you have to lie about it, seek professional help.
The president of Libya got that out of the terrorists he arrested after the attack, dumbass. If that's not enough for you, just go to Tunis and pretend to be a television news crew. They'll find you so they can brag about it.

CNN's Nic robertson had a news crew in Cairo for the "spontaneous" demonstrations that had been occurring all day, and had interviewed the brother of the blind sheik, who was invited to the "spontaneous" demonstration in Cairo to speak and put pressure on the US government to release the blind sheik.
Coincidentally, just hours before the attack in Benghazi began, CNN changed the story line to a "spontaneous demonstration", which they had been making videos of all day that day and interviewing some of the protestors. This change in story line coincidentally matched the lie the CIA intelligence report was changed to in the White House, and also the lie Obama would spew for two weeks after the Al Qaeda attack.
I'm sure this information wasn't in your indoctrination session.

You're and idiot.

<quoted text>This is really getting to be a lame subject don't you agree???
Could there actually be anyone posting on this thread for years that doesn't know precisely why Gitmo hasn't been closed?
Obama - if he wanted to - could easily transfer the prisoners out of there so they can be tried as our Constitution promises and requires.

Here's how. The federal prison system are in the executive branch, they can be directed to do Obama's bidding via executive order, no congressional action needed. And the US Marshall Service is subject to Obama's orders too. They have large passenger aircraft based in Oklahoma City for the sole purpose of transporting prisoners. No appropriations involved.

So send the Marshalls to Gitmo, order the military to open the doors (this costs the military zero thus no congressional prohibition) and fly the prisoners to the states to await trial in federal prisons, which unlike state prisons, have plenty of room. And get on with administering justice.

End of problem. Obama has fulfilled one of the promises that got him the job in the first place and he hasn't ruined his relationship with congress because he has none. Those who choose to hate our first black president will continue to do so regardless of what he does or doesn't do, and the rest of us will rejoice that Obama kept his word."
