    "Republicans are adults who have finally reached a place where they know what will make a business economic plan work" ??

    LOL. Neither party has and both are running us into the ground in terms of our deficit and debt.

    The tragedy in Benghazi, Libya, never a scandal to begin with, has devolved into a turf-protection spat between government agencies, and the e-mail messages Republicans long demanded made clear that there was no White House cover-up.
    The only example of true government overreach was the seizure of The Associated Press’s telephone records, the latest episode in the Obama administration’s Javert-like obsession with leakers in its midst.
    …While Washington was arguing about e-mail messages about Benghazi, it wasn’t paying attention to the hundreds of thousands of defense furloughs announced this week because of the Republican-imposed sequester, which will become a significant drag on economic growth. It wasn’t focusing on the huge drop in the deficit, which has yet to silence the party’s demands for more austerity. And apparently it’s considered old news that Republicans are blocking several of the president’s cabinet nominees.
    For those who are wondering whether this week’s political windstorms will hinder Mr. Obama’s second-term agenda, here’s a bulletin: That agenda was long ago imperiled by the obstruction of Republicans. (See Guns. Jobs. Education. And, very possibly, Immigration.)

    This guy, Mike Eden, gets a little off with the name calling and ad hominem attacks, although not even remotely close to the degree of a few around here. Still though, that kind of childish behavior makes me stop reading and stop listening, so I haven't read the entire piece.

    All in all, there's plenty of blame to go around.

    "huge drop in the deficit"

    You mean drop in the rate of increase.

    Looks LIKE right wing HYPE. (Clearly any blog that randomly capitalizes words in its titles must be a quality publication.)

    Freedom, you need to get out of the house more and limit your exposure to Fox Feaux News and it's supplicants.

    Put a tank full of av-gas in your Pontiac and hit the road for a couple of hours icon_exclaim.gif

    Anything constructive to say or just more emoticons ?

    And thanks for your concern, but I've been out plenty because the weather is nice. However, what's your excuse since you have nice weather all year?

    And btw, I highly recommend against using Av gas in an old car, however, you might want to give VP Racing Fuels a try

    http://www.vpracingfuels.com/vp-drag-racing.html

    You might have a dealer near you

    and if not, give Sunoco Racing Fuels a try

    http://www.racegas.com/fuel/index

    And I promise, time allowing, I will keep it tuned to Fox News .... hope you can do the same.

    Freedom I don't know how you watch that god forsaken channel. Politics aside some of the commentators and pundits are just mean and vicious. The blonde white lady on the Five group scares the heck out of me.

    "Politics aside some of the commentators and pundits are just mean and vicious"

    you mean like MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell and Ed Shultz?

    Scared of a woman ... you dewd you!

    And that channel (Fox) has NOT forsaken God btw. And yes, I have no trouble watching it, but just don't have the time, other than when doing cardio. I do listen to Fox and Patriot Radio (ch 125) on XM as often as I can. If I missed something that I should take a listen to, be sure to let me know.

    Oh, btw, I do listen to Glenn Beck and Rush when time allows.

    Give it a shot a few times and you might end up with something productive to say other than emoticons halfway down the page

    Actually under Obama's economic policies we are actually rebounding and making serious cuts in the deficit. How? Because of raising taxes. The Republicans are running scared because they're hoping to drum up something for voters to remember during 2016 so American voters will have distaste for the Democrats. It's the same thing they did to Clinton. The economy was booming so they had to focus on something else.

    Voting for Santorum if you're gay is like campaigning for Strom Thurmond during the 60's.

    I agree with you 100% on that one. This is why I think that both democrats and republicans should be evicted from office. Finally something that you and I can agree on rather than being at each others throats.

    FIF only self-identifies as gay or bi when it suits him. He probably 'dined away the gay' at Chick-fil-A on the day he voted for Santorum.

    If that's the right thing to stop the deficit and then pay off the debt we need to raise everyones taxes to 100% of their income - just do the math LOL.

    "serious cuts in the deficit"

    not quite ... reduction in the rate of increase, yes, when it comes to the national debt.
