Boehner too. Boehner even surrenders his position before negotiations even start.
Does anyone honestly believe that Obama has any interest in controlling who comes here, even his supporters and apologists?

Of course Mr. Stossel is correct, but the politicians and bureaucrats do not care. They are totally convinced that they know what is best for us, so to h*ll with what we the people want and prefer. To h*ll with liberty. They would actually rather we be a dictatorship with them in charge while they feign support of democratic principles.
The low sales relative to the advance (reportedly $14M), or the $14M advance does she deserve? I don't begrudge HClinton getting as much as her publisher was willing to pay as long as she didn't mislead them. That is free market capitalism which I very much support.
How are her book sales any indication of her performance as secretary of state?
Bill Clinton is more Leftist than he gets credit for. Much of his seemingly centrist governing was because the GOP leadership was effective in his day, unlike now. BC did start out pushing a Leftist agenda, such as socialized medicine, and got backlash in the 1994 elections, as Obama did in 2010. BC is a Leftist ideologue in his heart but he isn't so married to his principles. The GOP leadership fought and BC compromised, in complete contrast to today where Obama held firm and the GOP leadership surrenders without a fight. Of course BC signed the RFRA. How could he not with it passing UNANIMOUSLY in the House and 97-3 in the senate, and co-sponsored by Ted Kennedy? That would have been an embarrassing veto override if he didn't sign it. Perhaps BC would have signed it anyway without the prospect of an override, but he really couldn't not sign it.
Let's see. I need to buy something from a particular type of business. There are two businesses that provide that service. Technical competency and price seem to be the same but one has employees that quickly understand exactly what I need and the other it takes me an hour to explain to the employees what I need and they still get it wrong half the time. Which one gets my business? For the government to stick its nose in this is tyranny.
Obamacare's purpose has never been about insuring people. It has always been the nose of the camel in the tent. If it were really about insuring people, why make policies illegal that people were happy with? If you say, "Well your insurance sucks so you need the smart government people decide what is best for you", then why the heavy tax on "Cadillac" policies that are "too good"? Obamacare's purpose is to control the people, and a quantum leap towards total control.

I say the government shutdown was a good thing. Few people were affected at all. To me, it proved that the government is not lean, that much of government is not essential, that it can be cut quite a bit without cutting into essential services.
I thought Gibbs was insulting and condescending. Carney is even more so by an order of magnitude. Will the new one be even more so?
I thought the ability to lie is one of the qualifications of the job.
