    “It was a really great first step,” said Rep. Reid Ribble (R-WI). “He did express a willingness to give on entitlements.”
    Sooooo, a willingness to give on entitlements is a "great first step," eh?

    What's the second step?  The third?

    I gather Reid Ribble does not want to be re-elected, does he?

    How about the Dem senators and reps?  Do they want to be re-elected or not?

    Obama is seeking only Repuke approval and adulation for being a "bipartisan compromiser."  He's going to compromise We The People out of existence and the poorest among us will end up in poor houses or out on the streets and homeless.  He's gone when this term is up, so he doesn't care if people hate him for messing with SSI/SSDI/Medicare/Medicaid cuts or giveaways to Casino Wall Street for the rest of his life.

    He already failed us by not repealing the illegal and unconstitutional legislation and not ending the wars or slashing the DoD budget.  I guess he wants to take us all swirling down the drain with him..., but it doesn't matter to him because now he'll be richer than Midas after he leaves office after giving banks and insurance, medical, and pharmaceutical corporations the biggest windfall profits they've ever had.

    Gee, thanks Obama.  NOT!

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
