But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism -‘Boehner says Senate Democrats need to get ‘off their ass’ – ‘Senate Republicans Kill Sequestration Alternative’

party of no

There is just no making a Republican happy.

They want ‘leadershiop’ from the President and as soon as they get it – Republicans filibuster it.

Speaker Boehner wants the Senate to ‘get off it’s ass’ and when they do – Republicans filibuster it.

And a very special Thank You’ to Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

If you had changed the rules of the filibuster, you would have had legislation to send to the House and let the Republicans vote it down.

The President may have thought of the ‘sequester’ but the Republicans keep voting for it.

‘Boehner: I got 98 percent of what I wanted’

‘Boehner Halts Talks on Cuts, and House G.O.P. Cheers’

The Party Of No has now become the Party Of Grinding America To A Halt.

‘Senate Republicans have filibustered a Democratic bill that would pay down sequestration’s indiscriminate spending cuts for a year’.

‘The final vote was 51-49’.

‘It needed 60 votes to pass’.

‘If the bill would have become law, it would have replaced tens of billions of dollars in spending cuts set to take place this year with 10 years’ worth of deficit reducing tax increases and targeted spending cuts’.

‘The revenue would have come largely from individuals making over $5 million a year, by imposing a minimum “Buffett Rule” tax on their earnings’.

‘The cuts would have been divided evenly between agriculture subsidies and defense spending’.

Gun Nuts Out Of Control – ‘Vigilante Walmart shopper shoots at shoplifter, hits 3 cars, almost hits innocent’

vigilanties

‘In Orange City, Florida Mr. Jose Martinez was arrested for shooting five times in the Wal-Mart parking lot off of Veterans Memorial Parkway. He told the cops that he was defending himself from a shoplifter who ran over and injured him’.

“The guy put me in danger and other people,” said Martinez as police hauled him off to jail Wednesday evening. “He tried to run me over.”

‘But police said Martinez only was bumped by the shoplifter’s getaway car because he was chasing after the car and even tried to open the door to the moving vehicle before he opened fire’.

Mr. Martinez managed to hit the alleged shoplifter’s car, but also managed to fire bullets into two other cars’.

‘Fortunately no small children were shot in the head’.

‘The cops do say that one innocent bystander was “basically in front of the muzzle of the gun as Mr. Martinez was shooting.”

‘Eddie McKee, 42, was caught shoplifting groceries at the Walmart and took off when security confronted him, knocking down a woman, according to police’.

‘Several other people chased after the alleged shoplifter, Eddie McKee, and another man was armed but he never drew his gun. McKee was arrested in DeLand shortly after’.

‘Police said McKee then jumped in his car and took off, but bumped into another car in the parking lot, that’s when police say bullets started flying’.

‘This is the world according to the NRA, a good guy with a gun. The problem is that the good guy with the gun could be a stupid guy’.

Bob Woodward goes to FOX because that’s where you go when you’re NOT a journalist – ‘Bob Woodward Agrees With Hannity: Journalists Should Ask Obama About Bill Ayers’

bob woodward1

Next week – Bob Woodward interviews Donald Trump to get the real truth about Obama’s Birth Certificate.

‘The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward appeared on Fox News’ Hannity on Thursday evening to complain about National Economic Council director Gene Sperling’s email disputing his characterization of the White House’s role in shaping the mechanism known as the sequester’.

“I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post,” Sperling wrote to Woodward. “I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim.”

‘During his interview with Sean Hannity, Woodward claimed that he had been “roughed up” by Sperling and agreed with the host’s characterization of the Washington journalists as liberals who are disinterested in challenging the president with Bill Ayers, an education advocate who was part of the group the Weather Underground’:

HANNITY: “The fact that the president was never asked a lot about the 6 trillion in debt that he accumulated prior to this election, in this first election wasn’t asked about his association with Bill Ayers was troublesome to me, I think we’ve got a media that’s not as critical as perhaps it once was in, for example, the days of Watergate”.

WOODWARD: “Well, I agree with that. We need to be very aggressive and it’s one of the judges that said democracies die in darkness and I really think that’s true”.
