      Neither can I but the problem is that the Republicans have nobody( except for Ron Paul) who has anything better to offer us. We need a moderate who is willing to just say no to the MIC(military-industrial-complex) and get us out of all these useless wars overseas.

    Now, remember, CNN, as representatives of the Press you are not to shout questions. You are to curtsey and avert your eyes, and if the One deigns to allow you to ask a question, you will begin with "la kajira" before reading it from the card you are given by the White House.

    The only idiots are people like you and those in congress unwillingly to have a actual negotiation with the President. During the pervious administration idiots like yourself remained on mute while the idiot who was on office at the time repeatedly disgraced the nation.

    Just when will it occur to those nitwits on Capitol Hill to stop funding all these obnoxious wars that we're currently fighting overseas? The sooner we do that, the sooner we'll balance the budget or at least it'll help out a great deal.

    If the President shows up for this news conference without a necktie or in coveralls, it will be a very bad sign.

    banasy may have a point there.
    Obama wouldn't have to stop all of the wars. He could just call off a couple of them and we'd have more butter.
    Of course, then I'd have to alter my investment dreams...wonder what would happen if there were a lottery to stop some welfare payments?
    Oh–then he might lose the election.
    What else could he announce? The abolition of telephone trees?
    Maybe he should just talk about what Bush did.

    An aquaintence (just went into retirement), asked me this morning when I planned on retireing. My response was, the way it's going now....I'll retire when I'm dead.
    So yes, in a few years Barrack, IF your still supported and still in office, yeah, you can threaten and take away a social security payment from me. Something I've worked my ass off for since I was 11. But somehow pal, I get the idea it won't be there anyways.
    I do not think John Boehner is wrong.
    And raising the debt ceiling, shows no more initiative than making payments on a bankruptcy, then turning around and buying a gold plated toilet seat.
