Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama is showing his softer side. The man who was known in his first term for his cool, detached style has been crying, repeatedly.
It started the day after his re-election when a teary and happy president told campaign volunteers, "I'm so proud of you guys."
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
Obama needs to chill.
Pres.Obama is not going to let anyone who is under his power to knock him down. He knocked down the man with all money on earth (Romney), why should he continue to let this behavior continue?
First he has to toughen on Pharmacy companies and their drama. They are charging too much on the pretext of shortage of medicines which in turn insurance guys are cheating. Lock their doors. Simple.
Wish he had a budget on his sleeve.
The buck stops at Congress door and if anyone think's otherwise don't know jack about the legislative branch of governing and if Boehner and the boys don't want to raise revenue along with the cuts, since it is their jobs to put forth a comprehensive budget plan, what do you expect the Black guy to do, cave in to Mr. Charley and his hooded raiders . . . :(
Hell hath no fury like a Party scorned.
Hate never sells beyond those that hate.
And, by God, the one thing the GOP is good at
is hating. Hate is all that is left of that once
mighty party. What a sad day in America
that CNN jumped on the bandwagon of
Hannity and O'Reilly's particular brand of
@romney who flunked civics did we ???
@RomneyWho. Thank you! That is EXACTLY what they want.
Dear Mr. President, it may help if you write 'The buck stops here' 85 billion times and then maybe it will sink in.
Ed1.....had they taken his advise then we would not be in this mess today. We had 2 unpaid wars still fighting and an economy in depression. Would the GOP had preferred the poor people be put out to pasture and the economy completely collapse? The hypocrisy of these people are almost unbearable. Boehner's cannot stand up to Eric Cantor so he turn his attacks on the President....isn't that how a coward behaves. He is such a worthless Speaker and everyone knows it...it is embarrassing to hear him speak ....like an addict can't wait to get another drink.
