    Or you could show them saluting the flag. That’s another way to think of a political party that acts in the best interests of the country instead of pandering to a minority of vocal anarchists and assorted dingbats.

    oh yeah trout, we NEED another couple of trillion added to the debt YOUR grandchildren are responsible for.

    Have you EVER given a thought to cutting spending to make ends meet?

    YES, cut the military budget so what. But cut the EPA and AGRICULTURE and for GOD’s sake cut the wild spending of the freakin’ PRESIDENT

    The HOUSE actually originates all spending. Gee, guess who the Speaker of the House is, and who has the majority? While Obama’s budget requests have actually lowered the DEFICITS, yes the DEBT continues to rise, in large part not even due to current spending, but the huge INTEREST TAB run up by previous administrations for such novelties as wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (including handouts to contractors like KBR/Halliburton) wasted spending on junk the military doesn’t want, or can’t use because it doesn’t WORK! (F-22 and F-35 now are costing TRILLIONS of dollars, for their cost overruns, and the interest on the money Sam borrowed to pay the contractors UP FRONT with NO guarantee the product would EVER WORK!

    Yup, all Obama’s fault for spending since 1980 without taxing to match the INCREASES from Reagan and onward.

    Once again, “conservatives” are abdicating responsibility for their parties irresponsible spending and are unwilling to pay off debt. 30 years ago there was a cry against spending now and letting our children pay for it. (conservatives{?}) And yet they spent worse than anyone without thought of repayment.
    They are still howling about our children and grandchildren paying for spending.
    Every time we get close to balancing income and spending, they push to reduce revenue.
    “Conservative are pushing for more borrowing and spending, I’ll take tax (tariff, fees, etc) and spend over that any day.

    What an inane question. Was it designed to obscure the topic?

    Yes, he does. Every time he takes a trip we pay for it. Every time his wife MUST fly to the same place before or after in a separate plane he doubles the expense and we pay for it.

    Every time he has an extravagant state dinner, we pay for it.

    Every time he issues an executive order altering the costs associated with the law (Obamacare, immigration and so on) we pay for it.

    Now – of course – some of those expenses are needed. Plus, every president before him has done it to some extent. It does not change the fact that the actions of the President cost money that comes from the “national treasury” – as you put it.

    Add to it the FACT that this president said with no hesitation that “WE” must all sacrifice and help get control of spending and the debt. That running the government with a 450 billion dollar deficit was BAD and in fact unpatriotic when he was trying to gain the seat of power. That he swore that he would “change the way business was done in DC” and so on ad nauseum.

    And guess what, the PM in your government also has a check book, though I see that the Queen is being put on allowance.

    So why do you have doubts about what I said?
