    Do you think Obama's kids ask him, "Daddy, did you plug the hole in the budget yet?"

    Obama started the year by demanding Congress pass a "clean" debt ceiling increase to $16.7 trillion—"clean" meaning no cuts or restraint, just a blank check to keep spending.....:lol:

    isn't THAT the job of congress frank? Isn't that the promise of the New GOP lead house, before and after their election? Surely the gop representatives making the promise knew that they would have the democratic lead senate to deal with....when they were touting what they would do if elected?

    I think there is no magic wand, that will plug the budget deficit...it's gonna be a lot of hard work, with hard decisions to make, on behalf of we the people....and call me a pessimist, but I don't really think either the gop or the dems or the president can do it, without working selflessly, with one another....!

    But those 45 TP members who voted to keep the partiot act cannot be to blame, it has to be Obama's fault since the house went republican controlled and they are responsible for all spending bills.

    I admit I find it odd you repeat that over and over and over and over and over... as if someone, anyone has said they have otherwise. How about every post I make I find out how many Dems were in the house and Senate from back in 2006 and say they gave Bush all his money for the wars... Or that Obama and the Dems expanded and started new wars after running on a anti Bush platform.

    Or how about we just look at how many Dems voted for the homeland security under Bush and the expansion under Obama. And I’ll post it over and over and over and over and over no matter how irrelevant it happens to be…

    Edit: Or like Frank said, I'll just repeat over and over and over that Obama and the Dems didn't manage to find the time in 2 years to repeal homland security... In fact they never found time to repeal a single Bush era policy.

    It is my duty to point out the stupidity of others.

    God told me to not let the stupid forget their actions.
