    Off Obama will go on the next campaign tour. The budget was not resolved. It needs the undivided attention of congress and the president to go through all programs, trim the fat, and reduce the deficit.

    But Obama will be in some resort city talking about immigration and any other distraction he can come up with. He will wag his finger at congress telling them to get busy and do his bidding, while he goes and plays.

    Obama will talk about congress, but not to them, until a week before the money runs out again, kind of like a spoiled college kid who only calls home when he needs money.

    It has been 5 years almost and he has not focused on the most important issue -- Jobs -- He has no clue how jobs are created -- any progress we have made is in spite of his policies not because of them.

    Need to pass a long term budget; no more short term deals.

    they are one of the two parts of the three branches of government not the seat of all power. they are doing the biding of those that elected the,m but so is the senate and the president. When the judicial system overturns a unconstitutional law they are also doing their duty.

    Obama has been the most divisive and intolerant president in recent history. But passive/aggressiveness of left wing culture is no longer a game that people will tolerate: Playing victim doe NOT give you the right to perpetrate. Only the most partisan of left wing apologists cannot be appalled at Obama ramming though a healthcare law that no one read, was pushed by partisan abuse, and is clearly not ready for implementation (which is why Obama has illegally given so many friends and donors waivers).

    The fact that Obama would use Park Rangers as thugs to increase the pain, rather than accept reasonable requests, such as delaying implementation because it obviously is NOT ready, merely solidifies Obamas place as the worst president ever. Oh yea - Obamettes labeling all critics as being racist merely proves they no longer can rationalize incompetence and must resort to bullying in the absence of any logical arguments.

    Apparently you were absent during Bush's second term. Especially, the last 2 years when dems controlled Congress. Democrats blocked just about everything and never listened to Bush's warnings about the sub prime lending/financial crisis.

    The Safe Bet is to bring our spending under control, stop lying to America, Stop treating Americans with contempt, and to support small business.

    Basically the same plan that Mitt was going to do.

    So, Do it.

    Sorry Esquire, but your guy is the one who doesn't seem to understand the Constitutional process. He said to the Republicans that if they want change, they need to win elections. Well, they have. The House of Representatives. The Peoples House. The House that is most close to the grassroots of America. They won, and they are and have been doing what they were elected to do. Namely stop the progressive agenda of big government, including Obamacare. Obamas poll numbers are in the 30's. That matters more than Congressional numbers because they are attached to one particular person. If asked I'd put Congressional approval low too, but I'd be thinking Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi while I was doing it. Others would be thinking Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.

    With the GOP constantly taking the country to the edge of disaster, and vowing to destroy the President for no valid reason, of course there are no safe bets. If the Dems did to Bush or Reagan what the GOP has done to Obama, the GOP would be screaming bloddy murder and worse. I'm convinced that the right wing actually despises, in deeds over words, the Constitution and our democratic system. The threat to the nation is coming from the right wing.
