The only liberal even slightly easy on the eyes.

Too bad she isn't easy on the brain.

Why is it that Hollyweird types are so freaking STOOPID?

McTurtle is smart?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) introduced legislation to raise the debt ceiling on Thursday, apparently with the intent of showing that even Democrats would not support such a bill.

However, McConnell’s plan backfired after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) called for a vote on the legislation, which would have given the president the authority to raise the federal debt ceiling on his own. The top Senate Republican was forced to filibuster his own bill.

“What we have here is a case of Republicans here in the Senate once again not taking ‘yes’ for an answer,” Reid said, after McConnell announced his filibuster.“This morning the Republican leader asked consent to have a vote on this proposal, just now I told everyone we were willing to have that vote — up or down vote. Now the Republican leader objects to his own idea. So I guess we have a filibuster of his own bill, so I object.”

McTurtle is the "smart" teabagger?

I think that umbrella covers all of the elected officals, constant posturing and campaigning doesn't count.

"constant posturing and campaigning doesn't count".

Take the blinders off. You can push this off on one party but in reality where everyone else lives it's all their faults. The sequester was whose idea? Who is taking vacations for golf and hollywood elbow rubbing? One of these days you will wake up and understand our best interest isn't what they are working for, just theirs. I blame all of them since they get to line their pockets with our money, lobbyist money, insider trading and then make themselves exempt from what they say is good for the populace.

The elected officals could solve this problem quite easily and would require alot of belt tightening from them but why should they? IF we had enough jobs for those to work and no safety nets for the lazy they would have to do their jobs right and be held accountable by we the people. Sadly it's becoming more "we the handout wanters" getting more numerous than those of us who have to work for what we want.

"The sequester was whose idea"?

That would be congress, in the budget control act of 2011.

"Who is taking vacations for golf and hollywood elbow rubbing"?

My guess is the president, who took 3 days for a game of golf while congress took 9 days during the same time period.

"Sadly it's becoming more "we the handout wanters" getting more numerous than those of us who have to work for what we want".

That is true, weather you are a country needing aid, a corporation needing a tax break or an old man who needs his social security check.

Guess who has a paid lobbyist in D.C. with money in his hand ready to burn?

"Hollywood elbow rubbing"???????
