    Well how things can change in a single day.
    Today the President loses my accolades because in just one day he has returned to partisan hackery that we have come to know him for.

    Today - he announces SS checks may not be mailed Aug. 3rd if the debt ceiling is not raised.
    Bullshit.
    That is either a lie today, or it is a lie that they have been saying that the debt ceiling would not delay SS as there is enough money to carry through for several months.

    If this is true - that there truly is not enough money in the federal coffer to pay Social Security - then folks we are in a faaaaaaaaaaaar greater abyss than we ever thought of before - and this President has spent us into it.

    I really really really want him NOT to mail those SS checks. I really really do. It'll be worth it.

    The date and its immediate effects are nothing but fear mongering by Obama and the Democrats. Yesterday, it was both parties who were causing Obama troubles. Now Obama is causing Obama problems. President Flip-flop better withdraw from consideration in 2012.

    He deliberately and intentionally lied.

    There is no shame in that man.

    He is a fucking scumbag.

    Political views aside, I simply cannot stand Obama because of his lack of character. He is incredibly dishonest and deceitful, and I don't trust a word out of his mouth. I wouldn't vote for him even if he was the most libertarian candidate in history.

    He used fear tactics during the campaign when he told su this was the worst recession since the great depression....of course sayinng that right before promising the "scared poeple" a check in the mail if he is elected.

    He used fear tactics during the healthcare debate when he gave people reason to believe their home town pediatirician makes medical decisions on their children based on profit

    The problem is simple......he found out during the campaign that he can say "my shit dont stink" and people would believe him.

    And when someone like fox news would ask how it is possible for shit to not stink, the rest of the media would call them racists.

    Lied about what?

    You think those checks are delivered by magic?

    You close down government and the people responsible for sending those "checks", whether electronically or snail mail..aren't working.

    How fucking simple is that to understand?
