The Republicans did not get a chance to admonish President Bush for anything. The Democrats took care of that, and whined, and complained about everything. Now, with the dumbest President we ever had in office the Democrats see no evil, or hear no evil.
The GOPee was a rubber stamp for Bush for 8 years of horrific, incompetent, embarrassing Presidency, but now suddenly rise up and attack and obstruct EVERYTHING Mr. Obama tries to do.

That's partisan hypocrisy at its ugliest. You're pretty damn ugly for supporting it, too.

We don't need to hamstring the bozo........he does that all by himself!! The house has sent up several budgets to the senate, many backed by house democrats. The friggen senate leader Ried has sat on them..."we want more taxes!" LMAO

If the GOP house is obstructing nobama from emptying our wallets further than he already has..........God Bless the obstructionists!!

Hey, poofessor bozo.........2006 to 2008 was a full dem congress..the recession started in 2009..

Nobummer has had NOTHING but massive failures in green energy projects, jobs stimulus bills, military matters (no, he didn't kill bin laden)

The full dem congress from 2008-2010 with this president cost each American more from their personal earnings than any time in the history of the USA.

Now, his sequester has backfired on him...blame the republicans!! LMAO

North Korea theatening with missles.....nobama has four US nuclear carriers parked side by side at Norfork.......Pearl Harbor ring a bell..

Oh come on Prof you're smarter than that man. It happens by the Democrats when there is a Republican POTUS. SOP for these clowns (GOP/DEM) in DC.
During Bush, Reid alone blocked 26 appointee nominations. The Democrats even stated on record in 2001 that they would block every nomination by Bush. Further Obama appointed 4 during a Senate recess. Compared to 2 during Bush.
Also on record is the number of filibusters to block nominees, 84% by Democrats. So if you are going to cast stones it should be at the Democrats, as they have consistently proven they lead in filibuster to block nominees.
Please don't confuse the moron with facts. It makes his winky limp.

Flash: Obama continues to try and punish America while he him self is acting like a petulant child. Obama announced that White House tours would be cancelled, do to the cut backs on the sequester………WHILE taking 24 vehicles ONE HALF MILE last night to the restaurant to meet republicans. That meal and security cost more that the annual salary of the Head of the White House guides. Obama continues to show he has no clue between what he and his mouth pieces say and what he actually does.

He has a complete White House staff to feed him and guest and the security would have already have been there……….Obama has no idea of how money really works or how much he has added to our debt.

I'm not excusing anyone Prof. I am pointing out that you implied the GOP as the only offender, which is untrue. And I cited examples. Whether or not either of us like it, it is a reality.
There will be issues where the Republicans are more often to blame, and issues where Democrats are more often at fault. This is one of those where Democrats lead in blocking nominations.
Doesn't make it right, does not justify anything, and is not making excuses for either side. Please don't twist my words, and I will avoid same.
Hmmm, OK. I do agree both sides are playing games and have been doing so for far too long. I was certainly not trying to imply that only Repubbies were guilty.

Taking him to NY for trial..........not GITMO where a proper debriefing could be done. More of the obama inexperience. This just makes those in NY a target........elections have consequences.
