"We, the People"should sue these lazy representatives. They were elected to do a job, which they do not do. All they have done since President Obama was ELECTED by the citizens, is disrupt, waste time. Why should taxpayers be saddled with their medical coverage and pension plan? DEFUND these millionaires, let them pay their own expenses. If not for us, Cheney would have croaked long ago, instead of being all over the TV insulting the President. His snarling face is sickening.

Me too.

My son could not afford the $600 to keep his medical insurance effective while layed off from his job. He kept thinking he would be called back to work. Then he got so sick, he was afraid to go to the doctor because he said "They will send me for all types of tests, and I'll be in debt forever" Unable to keep food down, he tried baby food. Eventually he died, my doctor said it was malnutrition the autopsy missed something. Nothing can fill the space left in my heart, at the dinner table at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nothing. He was my youngest.

Urinal cakes

This is the gathering of the frat boys who have urinal cakes with President Obama's face on them. I would like to know who thought of this, ordered them and paid for them? Ralphie Reed? Rancid Pieface? This should be investigated.

John McCain

I have pondered this question, and decided either they think he is "photogenic" (he is not) or Bob Schieffer thinks having lumpy old Johnny on makes HIM look young and vibrant (it does not) Apart from that, I got nothin'.


WHY are taxpayers still supplementing the healthcare for these do-nothings in DC? Let them pay for their own care, that is an "entitlement" they could afford for themselves. Take it away, add the savings to the Veteran's healthcare instead. Given a choice, who would choose to pay for the politicians care over a vet? Imagine how much it has cost for Dickless Cheney's care all these years, and he is a billionaire. Little Johnny McCain also.

Too bad

I doubt that the Vietnamese wanted him. He was nicknamed "Songbird" for good reasons. Deserter? Dubya was unaccounted for for almost a year while in the National Guard. He deserted, then has the gall to send young kids to the front lines to fight for his friends to make lots of war profits. Mccain is a joke, not a "hero" Read the Rolling Stone article by Matt Taiibi about his service. No wonder he has his military records sealed. His good friend, Senator Foghorn Leghorn served stateside in an office, yet spouts off about this young man who volunteered to serve his country. The gop has turned into a bunch of bought and paid for senile old men, who just want their ugly mugs on TV EVERY Sunday. The so-called "journalists" just nod in agreement, while these "representatives" read their talking points, all alike from headquarters (Fox News)

Worth it?

I doubt if the powers that be think ANY of these young people in the service are worth it. Cannon fodder, from day 1. I would not encourage any young relative of mine to enlist, and I have had two husbands serve, one army one air force. When people such as W and 5 deferrment Cheney start useless wars, let them send their own family members into battle. By the way, didn't McCain's VP nominee "desert" her position as Alaska's governor? She did the state a huge favor, and avoided prosecution, but that's beside the point. Since her abdication she has not shut her big flapping yaw about the Obama administration.


The families of all the servicepeople overseas would all say YES if it were their family member instead of this young man. If I had any young people in my family of an age to "serve" I would discourage them, it just is not worth it to fight for this country as it stands today. Not because of President Obama, but the useless politicians who have sat on their lazy asses for 6 years now, blocking anything that could have helped the citizens. Shootings on a daily basis, it is not safe to go anywhere these days, gun freaks are running wild. Everything the President does is met with "Impeach" Disgusting. It has not changed since the early days. The gop is for the wealthy (tax breaks) the democratic party is for the workers. On Sunday the gop propoganda shows will have McCain and Graham on, calling for impeachment of the President, and further dragging the USA into a cesspool.


Thank you for your service, and the good you did for your fellow servicepeople. I never agreed with the war, anyone could see it was a farce from the start. Remember Cheney "They will greet us (us meaning young servicepeople) with flowers" "The oil will pay for the war" Not after he divided up the oil fields with his energy co-horts. That war was "in the works" before 9/11. How many of those war hawks enriched themselves, while young people came home in body bags? The body bags were not to be seen, even Barbara Bush said "Who cares how many body bags there are" Her family enriched themselves. The people were sold a bill of goods. Anyone who STILL believes this was a worthy cause, well, get your head out of wherever you have it crammed.

Face The Nation ETC.

All the Sunday shows that feature the gop ranting against EVERYTHING the President does or says, would have to move their time slots to a weekday. Little Johnny McCain, Lindsey Graham, Palin and the rest of them will be bursting at the seams to spew their hatred. None of the hosts will replay the video of them all appealing to the President to get this soldier back. Why are they called "representatives"? They do not represent any people I know. "Obstructionists" would be a better title for them. Looks like they have ALL been handed their talking points since they are all deleting their posts about being happy with President Obama on this. Too bad they do not have work to do, such as job creation, unemployment benefit extension, climate change laws, campaign finance laws, you know stuff like that.
