The mouth that never stops moving, but says nothing, is ever present like a rouge dog that marks every tree in the neighborhood.

Obama is President??? Somebody better tell Joe Biden!!!

"Vice President Biden misspoke Saturday at an inauguration ball by saying he was proud to be “president” – causing speculation about whether it was a gaffe or a hint about his 2016 plans. “I'm proud to be president of the United States,” the 73-year-old Biden said at the Iowa State Society inauguration ball. The audience laughed and cheered before son Beau Biden, Delaware's attorney general, interrupted to say his father misspoke."

BBBWHAHAHAHA! ONE missed heartbeat AWAY from the Presidency... Sure makes me feel secure. . . . .NOT!

Boozerboy, this country is MORE DIVIDED than it has ever been, worse than Vietnam war time, maybe back to the days after the civil war.

Obama got 51% of the popular vote, and only because the HUGE urban WELFARE STATE outnumbers the rural heartland of America now.

He is NOT the President of the United States, he is the DIVIDER in CHIEF of the GHETTO CITY-STATES of America.

The MAJORITY in 85% of the USA did NOT vote for this piece of crap and his arrogant "my way or the highway" negotiating style has done NOTHING to unite this country.

He wipes his arse daily on the Constitution, it is only a matter of time to see how long the Patriots of this country allow that Shat to go on without an impeachment.

Triton likes to take up causes that Karl Rove & Rush Limbaugh espouse, such as the false notion that telephone subsidies are the invention of the Obama administration. Look deeper Triton, you may find that these subsidies have their origins in former Republican administrations.

Just 5 minutes ago Barack Obama took the oat of office and our country is safe.

Two months ago a majority of the voters affirmed their decision to place trust in President Obama.

All Americans should now work toward the common goal of improving the country we share.

There IS no Consitutional crises on the 27th Amendment.

You missed it by 25, idiot. The Second Amendment is the amendment du jour, clown.

And the fact we have no budget in over FOUR YEARS as required by the Constitution.

Get a grip on something more important, hayseed.

Hoopla you idiot, the 27th Amendment was written in 1789.

It was PASSED in 1992, 223 years!!!!

What relevance does it have today???

It was designed so that Congress could NOT vote THEMSELVES a big pay raise, it would be effective only AFTER then next election. So they would be giving the NEXT Congress the raise, not themselves unless they got reelected.

So the voters had a chance to vote OUT the scoundrels who gave themselves a big pay raise.

oldman “I think Troll is responsible for the increase in liquor sale What else could be his excuse for his rants.”

I think oldman got drunk and posted that drivel in the wrong Comment page. Stagger over to the Liquor Sales article and see if you can hit the Post Comment button there before you fall off your stool, oldman. LOL

And hoopie, if you don’t like paying union dues then stop being a union tool like the MAJORITY of workers, who DON'T belong to a union because they were smart enough to realize the unions are simply Democrit party fundraising organizations funneling their dues to leftist pols who support their crony capitalist pals. LOL

wvhoopie “There go the extremists violating the Constitution again! The 27th Amendment clearly states blah blah blah blah blah”

... said the socialist Obamazombie who supports King Barry Otyrant’s unconstitutional executive order legislating away my Constitutional right to bear arms.

wvhoopie “Why can't we opt out of paying taxes? The extremists have forced this very opt out provision regardless of the majority vote?”

Well then apparently we CAN opt out of paying taxes. The Constitution gives the Government the power to lay and collect taxes; it doesn’t say the Government HAS to lay and collect taxes, no matter how much you tax-hiking liberals wish it did.

wvhoopie “Workers can opt out and not pay thier dues (taxes) yet they have to be fully represented by the union. Why is it ok to do this to a labor union but I can't do it to the gov't?”

Dues are taxes? LOL!

There go the extremists violating the Constitution again! The 27th Amendment clearly states:No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened. So take your extension and shove it Boehner and Cantor. You're violating the constitution.....again.....extremists!

maybe we should all go on benefits and stop paying taxes at all. I don't know what I get from paying about 44% of my earnings to state, fed and local govs. Pretty soon I am beyond the tipping point so it might be time to call it all off and go compete for the city dart championship and give up on working. Obama has a deal with us that so long as we vote Dem we don't have to work. I have a $125.00 cell phone bill but if I am a crack dealer I have no cell phone bill, the gooberment now gives them cell phones so they have good self esteem about themselves. And it helps the crack dealing business. Yeah rasie the debt, break the bank, trash your kids and grandkids, lets party.

60% of Americans (including 55% of Democrats) want spending cuts tied to a debt ceiling increase (CBS/NYT January 18) yet Liberals will still decry the position. The House is asking for a long overdue budget but they are labeled as a "problem"!! Liberals are to this country what icebergs were to the Titanic!

A four-year Democrit President,

a six-year Democrit Senate,

and a House that was Democrit for four years and Republican for only the last gridlocked two years...

racks up $6 TRILLION of “irresponsible, unpatriotic” debt,...

and Democrits are blaming ONLY Republicans.

Have you Democrits ever taken responsibility for ANYTHING?

mmm mmm mmm, pass the buck

Face it: the House is on the defensive. The American people know who the bad men are. The teapublicans will be held in check this time by a heartily chastened Republican leadership that understands the poll numbers.

85% of the American people blame the Republicans for inaction and foot-dragging.

REPUBLICANS ARE THE PROBLEM
