    If anyone wants this country to go to HELL, SLIDING in a hand-basket,....let Obama screw up and start messing with those Jews! Yes we have been supporting them and my guess is we will continue to support them!
    -
    If it ever comes to a point where we foolishly quit supporting them this country is going to SPLIT WIDE OPEN! Obama is supposed to be smart, I hope he continues to be that until he gets out of DC, and we won't have to worry about him hopefully after that. Then Maybe my Rx costs will go back to where they were, before he start messing with all that!

    Besides that we have enough good USA citizens sending the TERRORISTS money and support now, so why all the griping?

    Pres. obama decided not to work with his opposition two days into office, on Jnauary 23, 2009, when he chose the following course of action and comment:

    WSJ Capital Bureau, January 23, 2009
    "The top congressional leaders from both parties gathered at the White House for a working discussion over the shape and size of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus plan. The meeting was designed to promote bipartisanship.
    But Obama, challenged by one Republican senator over the contents of the package, replied: “I won.”
    With those two words — “I won” — the Democratic president let the Republicans know that debate had been put to rest Nov. 4 ".

    There has been scant effort to engage beyond near daily name calling and insults since then.
    That's a great job of hoodwinking your base when you can cause a problem, then blame it off on someone else, and they believe you.
    Obama oughta think about going into politics...[beam][beam][beam][beam][beam]

    You left out DOTS, Dictator of the Senate, Harry Reid. He's a camp all to himself.

    We do need a better way for the President and Congress to compromise, quit name- calling & complaining, and get things done.
    Congress is divided into 3 camps that are too polarized: Democrats, moderate Republicans, and Tea Partiers. All are acting like spoiled children (My Way or the Highway!).

    I believe President Obama has given up trying to work with them.
