Useless Harry Reid finally has gotten off of his dead ass and has done something. Democrats are to blame for just about everything that has gone wrong in this country over the past decade.

We've all seen Harry Reid. He is not smart enough to operate on his own. I wonder who runs Harry?

Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky was partly to blame for the delay.

Several leading Republicans foreign-policy lawmakers including Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina spoke on the Senate floor Friday against Sen. Paul's legislation. His bill was defeated.

Paul is the captain of the sinking teabooger taliban.

Well, if the elitist controlled dick armey freedom works tea party, now part of the old guard repubs and progressive dems power base sinks, then you will be proud. Of course things will continue to sink as you keep blaming and blaming year after year. They are all the same,just different sides of the coin. Now according to you it is the repub house fault and the innocent senate and president. Of course the old fall back..its Bush's fault will cleanse the palate of any guilt also. They got every unknown liberal judge changing laws enacted by state and local governments and even voters and even a traitor supreme court judge doing the new world order shuffle. They need that revenue. And by golly, they are going to get it.

So the do nothing Senate passed a funding bill to keep us going for 6 months. By March the Democrats, what is left of them, will try to sabotage the new President, Romney, and his Republican House, and Senate by threatening to shut down the Government. They won't pull it off, because Romney, and his new Government will be much smarter then the one we have today. Look how Romney outsmarted Reid on that tax form release. So funny. Gotta love it.

Did Harry Reid and his democrat majority pass a budget?

How can Harry expect us to keep sending them our dimes when they continue to spend, spend, spend and REFUSE their DUTY to provide a BUDGET to the American people.

President Obama sent a budget and Harry and the Democrats voted it down.

The House sent a budget to Harry and WHAT HAPPENED?

It is evident that the President and Harry are UNable to present and pass a budget!

ANOTHER indication that Obama can't work with even his OWN PARTY to craft a budget!

but then again, when asked by Letterman how much the debt was...Obama 'didn't know' the amount!

He's EMBARRASSED to say!

Mitt Romney needs to EVERY ad with that $16 TRILLION DOLLAR BUDGET SIGN, with Obama saying he doesn't know how much the debt is and the continued failure and AVOIDANCE of democrats in discussing budget issues.

Democrats are failures. Democrats are afraid to show the AMerican people a budget!

NO in NOvember
NO to OWEbama

It's time to END AN ERROR in 2012!

Rand Paul sure is a whiny little runt. He serves the TEA Party well. Unfortunately the TEA Party doesn't represent America. It's hard for me to believe this is the son of Ron Paul.

Stop that. The Republican RINOs hate being reminded that they are the cause of all the mess for voting Bush in twice.

Not another penny for the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt, or the savages in Libya that tortured, and killed our Ambassador. They have to know we won't put up with their uncivilized behavior.

The sad part is Obama will not only put up with it, he'll blame the US for it. Why do you think he put the muslim brotherhood in charge of Libya once he stopped the revolt?
