Why do journalists let these assholes get away with this nonsense? The bill they send to Trump is the only bill he can sign. I am so tired of this blame-game billshit. .
These are the same clowns who sided with sex/human traffickers, Mexican Drug Cartels, MS13, pedophiles, rapists, cop killers, etc.. over the American people to shut the govt down in order to make sure they were able to keep illegal immigration going, to forfeit our sovereignty, to keep the borders unsecure, Americans unprotected, and Federal Law-violating Sanctuary Cities operating ... and then tried to blame President Trump for the shutdown.

What do you expect?!

Some say BUY GOLD....I say buy .22 cartridges. You can't eat gold and it's worthless unless you get something you can use for it. The .22 is a noble round....it can take any game animal with a brain shot and not tear up fowl or small game...perfect currency for the zombie apocalypse....ie another Rat in the WH.
Try stopping an MS13 gang member, violent illegal inside your house, or some violent Antifa terrorist attacking you with a .22....

It is you that is passing the buck, not me. I give blame to all involved...
You are trying to spread the 'blame' like peanut butter instead of placing it like a crown on the heads of those who bear the overall responsibility of creating the budget and controlling spending.


Schools really should begin teaching the separate branches of the government and their roles and responsibilities again.

Bwuhahahahaha......
No, I think Gator is right to blame Trump for signing the shit-burgers McConnell et al keep sending him.

Trump would be blameless if he had vetoed all bullshit spending bills and Congress overruled his vetoes by super-majority vote.

As it stands, those GOP fuckers sent him shit bills, and he signed them.

ALL of those assholes are to blame.

In that situation, where Congress fails to act, Trump is blameless. How can he execute laws that are not passed by Congress?

I would be hanging the GOP out to dry if I were Trump. I would let them make all the excuses they can.

You are the one who had the emotional partisan response. The fact is that the $2.5 trillion dollar deficit was outrageous. The money was pouring into the Treasury and the deficits should have been much smaller or even have been surpluses.
So you are trying to re-write history by claiming that 'money was pouring into the treasury' right after the attack on 9/11/01, when the markets / wall street literally shutdown, as the US entered war in Afghanistan...that 'deficits should have been much smaller...that we should have had a surplus'...

:wtf:

And thank you for completely avoiding how Democrats during Bush's last 2 years added 1/3rd as much in deficit ($1.5 Trillion) as Bush and the GOP did in 6 years.

Thank you for completely avoiding the fact that Barry did NOT inherit any economy from Bush / the GOP but that he inherited it from his own Democrats who held a near super majority control of Congress, meaning for the 2 years before he became President DEMOCRATS ran the economy, controlled the purse strings, controlled the spending, were responsible for the budget.....

The govt is F*ed up from years of career assholes on both sides running it into the ground, creating disasters then claiming they were the only ones who could fix it...for a high price.

I disagree, however, that you blame Trump for traitorous shitbags standing with sex-traffickers, MS13, and other vile criminals to shut the govt down and 'you' blame Trump for the shutdown because he did what you just demanded he do -- refuse to sign it.

Which, in fairness, is what Trump also said, almost word for word.

Didn't he eventually cave and sign?

Maybe I am mixing events. I remember a bunch of "conservative" commentators clawing their eyeballs out after Trump ended the shutdown by signing the bill.

That is my point. The Democrats give him a traitorous POS budget to sign & he refuses....so people blame HIM for shutting down the govt, then for the good of the nation he signs the bill to get the govt open again. The Democrats (and others) then blame him for 'caving'. People want him to hold out then bitch because they aren't willing to endure a little pain to stand up against the Democrats, and the Democrats were willing to blackmail the country for as long as it took to get what they wanted. They didn't give a damn if Americans suffered.

Remember when Obama and the Dems shut down the govt? A memo from Obama to his agency directors leaked out showing he was telling them to make the shutdown as painful on the American people as possible and to blame the GOP. The SOB tried to shut down a US historical site in Va - when he found out the govt did not own it he ordered the govt-maintained road leading to it be shut down.

The "Entitlement" side is small potatoes next to the military budget and corporate handouts. (tax cuts) Yet that snake continues to villify normal americans as the cause of the problem.

Rebuilding our nation from the destruction by Obama is going to be expensive....there is nothing more costly to a nation than liberal socialist leaders....Socialism comes with a price tag libs...when it fails which it always does there is a mess to clean up after....that clean up is costly.....but keep calm we are bringing in record number of dollars into the treasury each day.....wait until California wakes up and boots out the progs...then the clean up will begin and it will bankrupt the state....
That is a bridge too far....WAY TOO FAR lol

Blaming Obama for GOP irresponsible fiscal spending?

You sound like Rderp blaming BOOOOOOOOSH for all of Obama's bullshit.

Your blame game is why the problem NEVER gets solved. Why do the hard work of solving problems when you can point at someone else to absolve you of your role in it.....
Obama was president for 8 years of debt increases...what are you talking about?.....the GOP sucks as bad as the dems when it comes to fiscal policy....I blame them both but the leader of the country was Obama...do you give Obama a pass because the GOP was afraid of his skin color?....give me a break...we all sat here and watched Obama mount us with more debt than any other president in our nations history....

Yeah you cons keep saying that....still hasn't happened. And it won't. If we wanted to be a red state, we would be a red state.

Know any other good fairy tales. The fact is that both parties have their sacred cows they are unwilling to place any restrictions on. Military contractors are eating our lunch with their cost overruns.
Military spending was cut off via the sequester under Obama while we were still at war...that military is in desperate need of funding and Trump is doing that...like I said Obama was expensive....

Oh horseshit....You could wring all the waste and graft out of the budget and you wouldn't need an increase for years....maybe decades
The military needs rebuilding...that costs money....we have other needs to because of Obama's sequester....why aren't you shouting that Obama cut our military off while we were still at war?....get a grip...this is Trump's first term and Obama broke a lot of shit that needs fixing....

If you think CA finances are just fine you are believing lies...Cal Pers is breaking the state....businesses are leaving the state...tax payers are leaving....you had better hold on tight because it will most likely be you that is left to pay for its clean up....

They're not rebuilding jack shit. They're giving tax cuts to billionaires and corporations and that's all they've done. There is no money for infrastructure, or programs to help the poor. Just more military spending, which, if you're not going to get involved in foreign wars, is totally unnecessary.

And revenues are NOT going up:

“I’m very concerned about it. Particularly on the entitlement side, the mandatory spending side, which is where most of the money is. And that’s something that the president has not had a particular interest in doing anything about,” acknowledged Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the party whip. “We’re going to end up spending more than a lot of Republicans, I’m sure, would like. But that’s what it’s going to take to get a deal.”
Deficit Don
Deficit Don? Red ink gushes in Trump era

Seems to me if they were concerned, they could stop it...since they control the Senate....

Again, been hearing it for years. Especially the part about business leaving in droves. We should be void of business in this state by now. And wasn't CalPERS going to break the state at least 20 years ago? We still aren't broke. And we still have plenty of business.
