According to abcnews.com business correspondent Richard Davies in a story dated Aug.6,2013 the Washington Post has lost 40% of it value since 1993 with a corresponding drop in classified revenue.Do you think the Washington Post has learned its lesson?-that liberal print journalism is not popular to most Americans!

Tea Party is planning A coup in the Republican Caucus.
Open revolt and a call for Boehner's head.
I don't think they have the courage to get 50 members to backk their play, but as always they are talking big.
Those extremist rabbles always have a lot to say.
It's just a case of the flea-bitten tail trying to wag
the old. smelly dog.
The GOP, totally useless to America.

What is wrong with giving Obama, and his 40 thieves everything they want if it will win elections in the long run? You give them the debt level, and question every penny they waste, and point out how the Republicans can do better. Well, no one could do any worse. This gives Republicans time to concentrate on Benghazi, and the fact we need job opportunities, not handouts. This is a win win, and the Democrats call it something else, because they can't lead. They hope no one will notice. You can't let the country go bankrupt, and the Democrats would just shut down the Government again if they didn't get their way, like addled Children.

At least you're paying attention to something.
How many months before you start claiming to have pulled the ACA through in spite of the "obstructionist democrats" lolz!

There were no noose salesmen at any palin rallies. barock has had muslim terrorists in the WH though, as well as his new IRS guestapo.

barock is half black, and has nothing in common with most blacks who didn't attend ivy league colleges and prep schools.

Blacks are suffering the most under the 0rganizer. It will get worse when he gives illegal aliens amnesty.

The rich liberals are getting richer.

It isn't just about the spending, it is about the terrible waste in every one of Obama's agencies. You are right, the Republicans can now look at every penny spent, and appropriate it or not.

If I recall correctly the government shut down was mostly aimed at closing open air parks like when the democrats closed the veterans momorial just in time to stop the annual veterans momorial trip .
Thank God we had some American loving republicans to move the barricades so our veterans could still go in . And as the democrat started to set up the barricades across town the democrats reopened the national mall so illegal immigrants could protest our laws about immigration . Where a bunch of illegals got locked up , not deported... Watch and you will see that the democrats are all about punishing the American people as they let illegals run free and Muslim get away with murder . Democrats keep talking about equality and that my friend is another word for socialism . Just like the republicans keep saying , America need opportunities

Right on man , that's why we need to down size government . Here's how it works, its up to the next president to fix what the pervious president messes up . It's not about trying to out spend each other . Big government = more taxes = less money in your pocket . Obama is only pushing big government that's why he rased the wages for government contractors and not for the private sector ...

Odummy just gets more free rein to hand out borrowed chimese money to his voters. At some point the chinese will want their money back, that's when the shyte hits the fan. Odummy will be out of office with his millions, healthy monthly infusion of chinese pension money, free protection and healthcare for the rest of his life. What makes anyone think this POS gives a flying shyte what end results his actions now will produce ? The epitome of the gibsmedat mindset.

You mean like Ronnie Raygun gave amnesty to illegals? LOL.

The rich Rethuglican Fascists are getting richer by far.....check the stock market lately? Presided over by the "half black" president.

George Tush collapsed the economy with the help of Rethuglican run Wall Street.

And EVERYONE suffers under Rethuglican "leadership." Sorry, buy your party of choice is a dying, shrinking mass of the socially retarded and willfully ignorant.

Winning national elections is a thing of the past for the Rethuglican Reich. The schism within your party means the wilderness for you, get used to it.
