    Schweitzer: 'Skunk in a chicken coop'

    Newt sure looks like he fits the skunk part.

    Schweilzer tells it like it is !

    Only one skunk? It's a good bet that if the chicken coop door were ajar, the percentage of skunks to chickens would be quite high. Like about 9 out of 10, in the skunks favor.

    It's incredible that 42% of Americans think that this unqualified, incompetent, dishonorable, ego-driven fraud is doing a good job. Take a moment. Admit it to yourself. You know who his supporters are. They are the people that YOU support - financially.

    Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasn't getting his way on raising the debt ceiling? He threatened to not pay:

    – Social Security Retirees

    – Military Retirees

    – Social Security Disability, and Federal Retirees.

    – Now let this sink in really well...

    – He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens.

    – He did not threatened to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates.

    – He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired.

    – He did not offer to cut down on his or his wife's frivolous gallivanting around. $20 Million already spent on family vacations. (One Million on a FL golf outing). All our money...why not?

    – He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff.

    – He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients or to stop the free cell phones they get.

    – He did not threaten the food stamp programs.

    – He did not threaten to reduce payments in foreign aid.

    – He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base voters.

    – The list could go on and on. He is in full political mode!

    Why are we allowing this person to destroy this wonderful country with his selfishness and his lies? Have WE lost our blooming minds!!!!!!!!

    His type of change is killing our country. He needs to be stopped.

    Do not forget about his tactics when it's election time 2014.

    Get out and Vote in the mid-term election – 2014. Support the people in the House and Senate that are willing to cut taxes and spending.

    LET'S MAKE 2014 – THE Beginning of a turn around. Forget change we want our $$$$$$$$$ back and we want to take our country back!

    Schweitzer's version of the truth makes him his own skunk.

    Obama refuses to compromise on any issue. That makes Obama the entire obstacle to this. Period.

    This "compromise" should include public flogging for all GOP members of Congress, after which they should be sent to remedial classes on how our constitutional government is supposed to operate, and their role in making sure it operates that way.
