Maybe Obama should give them those jobs he promised when he was running for reelection. It is too late now. He is already a lame duck.

maybe you shouldn't side with obama so much.

fact is.. the congress and obama don't give a fu#king shit about americans and america.

why don't they stop the outsourcing of jobs and factories?

why do they keep talking about an amnesty when we have double digit unemployment?

are you one of those guys who vote for obama simply because he is black?

Obama will never be prepared to be President of the United States no matter how much time he spends in the Oval office. He really doesn't spend much time there, what with the links, and all. It is a good thing actually when you see the damage he has done as a part timer.

Why not? I believe this President signed into law a budget deal and also approved a defense spending bill while on Christmas holiday in Hawaii.

And that budget? There was no extension of Unemployment checks, because the Taxed Enough Already people refused to pass it if they included it. I guess they have more influence then you thought. There will be no extension until the Democrats find the money to write off the exact amount. Damn, those TEA people are good!!! The money ran out today, and the Congress won't get back to D C until after the first of the year. Hope they saved some of that booze money to eat on for a change.

The Extension of unemployment benefits would have cost the same amount the Republicans cost the US Treasury and tax payers with that disastrous Shutdown.

The GOP is proving to be the gang that can't shoot straight........ this has become catch up week for Obama, while on Vacation.

Benghazi has been proven to be the scandal that never was and it's turned out the year worth of hearings and speculation and information leaks was a scam to try and change the narrative as I had stated from the real problem of Republican Budget cuts being responsible for the murder of Ambassador Steven.

The Obamacare web site processed more than 1.5 Million consumers from Oct 1 through Nov 31 and is picking up steam to obtain goals before March 30th.

After a year of being on the ropes, Obama has weathered the storm in less than a week from the lying allegations and speculation that pledged him in 2013.......... If the Republicans were smart, which they've proven not to be, they will find a way to restore unemployment and military benefits if not this is only going to add to the baggage they're carrying into the mid terms.

They wasted all that time and money on nothing.......... idiots........

DNC sends email defending Obama from impeachment possibility...

The DNC, which recently expanded its political tactics to include boycotting independent news outlets, previously supported the last president to be impeached: Bill Clinton.
Obama’s staff changed key talking points on the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack; his Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups during the 2012 election cycle; and Obama personally lied to the American people when he told them that they could keep their existing doctors and health insurance plans under Obamacare.

Obama’s expansion of executive branch authority is “setting the stage for something very dangerous in the future” according to Republican Rep. Justin Amash.

IT IS CLEAR THE LIBS ARE FEELING LESS THAN COMFORTABLE ABOUT 2014.

one of the messiah's blind sheep.......isn't it your messiah who is doing all these cuts to veterans'? and medicare ? and even stopping school kids from making trips to visit the white house! is he not the one who has DIVIDED the nation? a true leader unites in time of chaos and finds a way to keep the people together NOT CAUSE THE SEPARATION AMONGST IT'S PEOPLE which he has brought, FROM DAY ONE ON THE JOB! Don't forget the Zimmerman case not that I back what he did but your messiah sure didn't help matters which some of his damage is still being felt around the country in the "knock out game" which he encouraged with his 2 cents worth right after the Zimmerman case. And to add insult to injury what happens to those black thugs playing the game and having caused death and serious injuries to some citizens? NO JUSTICE, thats what, WHY? oh poor youths they're black they don't know any better. The white Texan who decided to play the game in retaliation more than likely, what happened to him? Justice was served as should've happened with all those black youths who STARTED THIS MALICIOUS GAME on innocent people. Don't you call me a racist because I really feel bad for the elderely black man the white teen beat up. What I am trying to get across is the fact that your messiah IS racist AND SHOWED THE NATION he is. Now he won't even comment on whats happening, WHY? he is afraid of things getting worse. So you keep worshiping the WH messiah, he is a complete failure and is exactly the kind of leader that our founding fathers warned us about and introduced our constitution for the country and it's citizens' protection against TOO BIG A GOVERNMENT which we now have. Our government is still by the people AND FOR THE PEOPLE. Of course your messiah is taking swipes at our constitution trying to undo it FOR HIS OWN SATISFACTION OF DESTROYING the protection that we citizens and that has worked for us for decades.

I have renewed faith in America, and the American people each day that I see them question every move made by the lame duck President, and his cohorts. Up until this past November it looked like we were stuck with the President's ways, his incompetence, and maybe even Hillary in 2016. Since October with that disastrous launch of the President's legacy I believe Americans are interested in preserving the values we are famous for, and the future looks bright.

Perhaps Obama should read the bills before he signs them. Obviously, he never read Obamacare because he's always modifying it. And now, he says he doesn't like the budget he signed only a few days ago.

Is it possible this President is illiterate? Perhaps he never did graduate from any school after failing every course because he cannot read.
