    I would not say that, it is just he drank the kool-aid at a very young age. More like had it injected into him so what he is doing is his religion.

    He’s lowered the deficit, and shrunk the size of government every year, something no Republican president has ever done. Obamacare is a huge benefit, and unlike the Medicare expansion under Bush, is paid for. The IRS scandal is not really a scandal — groups from both sides were scrutinized, and none were turned down (though a lot of them clearly should have been). The scandal is — why does any group that exists to support one political party deserve tax-exemption and complete donor secrecy, when that is specifically against the law?

    Obamacare has increased and will increase the size of the Govt.
    This year the deficiet is reduced, thanks to the sequester. Check the IRS story, the Left groups were not even subhjected to the degree of delay or harrassment.

    I see this as a failure of the Republican party leadership. It’s time for SOMEONE to man up (or woman up) and deal with the debt and health care in a meaningful and useful manner. The federal government has incredible amounts of dollars at its disposal, but spends it very poorly.

    If the Republicans would propose meaningful legislation (meaning something other than cuts in social programs to offset cutting taxes on the “job creators”) regarding the debt, and propose a truly valuable alternative to Obamacare, (which is quite different from voting against it, what, 37 times?), they could gain far more traction and political capital than they can by maintaining the present course of fake outrage, obstruction, and innuendo. And if they could really make this happen, the President would be required to admit its value by signing it. The balance of power would then shift even before the elections of 2014.

    This is a golden opportunity for Republicans to show that they are truly not the Party of Stupid. I expect nothing out of them, though, so I will not be disappointed.

    “He’s lowered the deficit, and shrunk the size of government every year, something no Republican president has ever done. "

    I nearly spit out my food when I read this. As a percent of GDP, not even counting real dollars, this current administration has increased our debt and deficit, and has ballooned the size of government. The only reductions in government are being done at the state level with governors who are seeing the writing on the wall.

    Obamacare comes straight from the Heritage Foundation. Look them up. It just gives the corporations tax money. But it also helps 32 million who had no coverage before. Not the best kind of health care but some few more get coverage.

    3 maybe 10 pages of the 2,000 page bill was from the heritage foundation.

    Right, Tea Party groups help up for three years and liberal groups were put in the front of the line. Arodney how many liberal groups were asked to give membership rolls and copies of their reading materiel? Now we know that more than two people were involved in this including the White House Chief of Staff, do you even think about what you post.

    The proper question would be: “Which is better, big government that provides services or big government that tries to legislate morality?”

    Wow! The righties are really sucking from the LImbaugh gas bag tonight! Closer to 700 pages of the ACA were authored, or co-authored by Republicans. The costliest of course being granting the “privates” complete access to the insurance market. Granted, it’s a ridiculously long and convoluted bill, and should have been broken into at least four different elements, but it still should INCREASE the number of folks covered, and there is no rational reason for valid employers to decrease the coverage, or number of employees.


    Yes, the deficit is still with us, but is much reduced in “increase” from projections earlier. There is also considerable discussion by economists, left AND “righties”, that sequestration, and many cuts, and reductions, will hurt, rather than help.
