Politician squatters been deadbeats for the last hundred years. Ever since they got the fed and wallstreet and us dumbass taxpayers to finance them with no questions asked. As a brain dead non communicating society, we have the shytepo people in office we deserve. Glad I'm seventy, but I do have great pity for the youth of today. They're screwed bigtime.

“i hope we can change this!”

There is no recovery. It is all smoke, and mirrors. This Administration is the worst American Government in History. They have no clue, and they don't even care that the whole world knows how inept, and incompetent they are. The President lies about everything. And his people swear to it.

ODeadbeat should not warn anyone about being a deadbeat. We are seeing the greatest presidential failure in history.

Obama has lied to the American people on every level at every turn. He has accelerated the rot happening to morality and ethics. The Marxist actually believes he can inflate us out of debt. He, along with the bankers putting him in power should be arrested. Learn from Iceland.

Obama can dig out some old campaign speeches and promises. Tell us how he will bring the country together, cut the deficit in half, work from the middle and have open transparent government. That along with a some fund raising celebrity parties in Hollywood will get him by until he retires.

Obama threatens GOP action could harm the economy??? What does Obama think the GOP wants? This is like threatening your teenager that unless they get home on time, you are going to increase their allowance.

A juror in the trial of George Zimmerman says the former neighborhood watch volunteer "got away with murder" when he was acquitted earlier this month in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.

The woman, who is part Hispanic and was identified in court as juror B29, said she would have liked to convict Zimmerman of murdering Martin but her hands were tied by a lack of evidence.

"You can't put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty," she said in an interview due to be aired on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday. "But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence," the woman said.

Perhaps getting more people out of the workforce, perhaps another category below disabled, call us the dis enchanted, you know you can't really get anywhere even if you have a job, why not pay us like half of what the disabled get?

And shocker, again no mention of monetary policy. The foundation to the economical situation we are in.

So that tells me, they are either incompetent or are afraid to touch the subject.

Personally, i think it is a matter of both.

"Threatening that you won't pay the bills in this country when you've already racked up those bills - that's not an economic plan. That's just being a deadbeat," Obama said...

But you're the one "racking up those bills" Mr. President! You're the one who keeps pushing to spend more money than we're taking in. So who's the real deadbeat here?

"Obamas spending numbers get even higher if you look at what he proposed to spend, using CBOs estimates of his budgets:"

2012:$3.71 trillion (versus $3.65 trillion enacted)

2011:$3.80 trillion (versus $3.60 trillion enacted)

2010:$3.67 trillion (versus $3.46 trillion enacted)

"So in every case, the president wanted to spend more money than he ended up getting."

Obama warns??? That's all this ahole does. Congress has taken it's eye off the ball? This jerk still thinks we need to spend and tax more. Is this guy brain dead or what?? Go on a permanent vacation, at least you can do no further harm if your not around!
I think it's about we bring this guy into the realm of preachers. The Reverend Barack Obama. Might as well call him what he really is, another race baiter.
