The best part of this article is how they compare and contrast President Obama's poll ratings against the GOP... these stupid Republicans never stood a chance against ourOsama-killing President. They are playing checkers in a professional chess game against a masterful and brilliant chess player

Even though the White House Porch Monkey CREATED the sequester (look it up), the media gives the POS President a pass on EVERYTHING - The fact that he is a worthless, divisive empth suit with a teleprompter for a brain doesn't matter.
The fact that the sequester is a drop in the bucket doesn't matter either. Any cut is MASSIVE.
Thanks to a terminal DemocRatic infection, the US is toast. Keep those high capacity magazines handy.
You are going to NEED them when the dollar isn't worth a penny.

That weigh in is more of a stress release... all President Obama does is win and the best they can do is spew a rant laced with hate, bigotry and vitriol... which in the end further helps Obama and further alienate and isolate them.

LMAO now nobummer is going against the idea he created..........hilarious. He needs to stick to checkers, bozo. He keeps muttering "king me" when he can't!!(Chuckle)

House Speaker John Boehner had a simple message Wednesday for President Obama after he used the bully pulpit to blame Republicans for the "meat cleaver" of looming spending cuts: You created it, you fix it.

Bohner is showing the dictator wannabe that he isn't going to be allowed to be one!!!

CBS NEWS DIRECTOR: OBAMA MUST 'DESTROY THE GOP'
'If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat'
Published: 01/19/2013 at 6:04 PM
(Newsbusters)“The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.”
So astonishingly wrote CBS News political director John Dickerson at Slate Friday evening in a piece astonishingly titled “Go for the Throat! Why if he wants to transform American politics, Obama must declare war on the Republican Party.”
Dickerson is no longer interested in Obama trying bipartisanship in his second term – as if that’s what the President did in his first.

Looks like the gophers are destroying themselves with their in-fighting, their rebranding, their reframing, their being for something before they were against it, their obstructionism, their weak leader in Boehner, their backward thinking and their last presidential candidate.

The dems did it in 2008.......who the hell do you think started the birther movement? It wasn't the republicans!! LMAO

The last presidential candidate is a financial genius who could have brought more businesses to the nation with jobs...

The current president got elected by those who didn't want them.

Like New Orleans five years after Katrina.

"More than five years after Katrina, New Orleans is struggling to deal with about 43,000 blighted residential properties — in various states of neglect and collapse. The city has a larger percentage of blighted properties than any other U.S. city, about one-quarter of its housing stock.

And in these wastelands, an estimated 3,000 homeless find refuge every night. They are wretched people suffering from mental illness, disability or substance abuse, or simply down-on-their-luck working poor. They can be found sleeping in schools, rundown shotgun-style houses, warehouses, sprawling factories and even funeral homes and hospitals."

Pentagon informs Congress of plans to furlough 800K civilians

By Jeremy Herb - 02/20/13 11:16 AM ET
The Pentagon notified Congress on Wednesday it will be furloughing its civilian workforce of 800,000 employees if sequestration goes into effect March 1.

Defense officials have warned lawmakers that sequestration will devastate the military and lead to a hollow force, but the civilian furloughs will be one of the first major impacts felt by the across-the-board cuts.
