The R's have this one right. The best analogy out there is that when you have an emergency at home and if you're already sunk in unimaginable debt, looking for a loan to fix the emergency isn't what you do. You look for ways to cut out some of your spending elsewhere in your budget.

Democrats will never get it, and for that they're doomed to irrelevance in 11/12.

... and as long as the R's didn't give in to the flaming race-baters and classists like you, then I'm o.k. with it.

Just how delusional are you?

GOP noted that the disaster funds sought by the Obama administration and its allies in Congress were known to be unneeded. The Federal Emergency Management Agency indicated it had enough money for disaster relief efforts through Friday. That disclosure allowed lawmakers to jettison a $1 billion replenishment that had been included in the measure - and to crack the gridlock it had caused.

"In my view, this entire fire drill was completely unnecessary," McConnell said. Obama and Dems tried to sneak to the tune of $1 billion into the measure causing GOP to require offsets.

Mary Landrieu, D-La., had previously unleashed an unusually personal attack on House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., saying the weeks-long controversy started when he said, "Before we can provide help we need to find offsets in the budget."

Time for Landrieu to apologize now to Cantor.

$200,000. per job, and that is fine with the Democrats. Well, why the hell not, it isn't their money. Have we ever had a more inept group in charge in Washington? They make George Bush look like a genius, and they make Jimmy Carter look Presidential. And yet if they can steal enough votes from illegals, the dead, and the multi-voters they are there for 4 more years.

The miraculous disclosure of having enough money for disaster relief efforts, what took so long to say so, something reeks, or was it just bad accounting. They didn't but they did.

I keep hearing the MSM say Americans would like to fire Congress. What they fail to mention is Americans want to fire Demoncrats and RINOs, not Tea-Baggers. We will change the world in 2012 if we live to see it.

It's gameplaying by Reid AND Boehner. Boehner is INeffective as Speaker of the House. Just can't stand listening to his cigarette ravaged voice. He sounds and looks unhealthy.

The point was that FEMA reported several days ago that they did not have the funds, thus instigating an unnecessary roil in Congress. Were FEMA's estimates were wrong, or a deliberate ploy to create political unrest and accusatory vilification of the Republican Party. Create a controversy where there is none, does that sound familiar.

How is it possible, first FEMA didn't have the money, then they did! Where did they get it? The point is we sent these people to Washington to watch over our money, and they can only do it for a few weeks at a time. It is past tieme for us to replace the whole bunch.
