Do you think many Obama voters are regreting their choice right now? Or, will they be like the woman who keeps returning to her abusive partner. How many more lies and obfuscations will it take? I am NOT enamoured with the Republicans and some of their alternatives, but, Obama and his crowd are terrible.

John37, you seem to have hit it on the head with the woman returning to her abusive partner. And I agree about the GOP...a polition in my book, in most situations, is a liar and a thief. And as a career Marine I saw much defense waste and was told many times to shut up about some of it. But I also found the majority of the waste was promulgated by congressional response to lobbist who, like obama, did not consider backdoor, backroom deals anything but good business....for themselves...and I saw many examples of such waste. And after I retired and became a school teacher, my worst experience, I was faced with the same thing...spend money or you are deemed to be a poor teacher, ever if the spent money is a total waste.

I was a government contractor for many years and saw so much waste. I was 'released' from many contracts because I could not keep silent. I tried to use tact and suggest that there was a better way to do things. But, after a few years, I would just tell them that it was their money being wasted too! On to the next contract and try to be a good little worker and not think, just do as told. Not something I was able to keep up.

Regrets??? No, not yet anyway. Just making one excuse after another for His Highness. Its interesting to watch how they turn themselves inside out.

And then they whine that they only get 250 free minutes a month on said cell phone. I have an ex that does that now. When we're talking...

Welcome to Thunder Dome.

Well, at least sequestration was supposed to bring about a post-apocalyptic world until President Obama realized Republicans weren’t going to capitulate to his will (again) and raise taxes (again) to replace the sequester he birthed in 2011.

There was a distinct change in tone from the White House this week on what sequestration would mean. In little more than a week we went from roving bands of teacherless children wandering darkened streets filled with uninspected rancid meat, illegal aliens and pre-convicted felons released because of lack of funds setting fires there aren’t enough firefighters to extinguish...
