    @ Matthew
    Nothing is going to reverse that trajectory so long as the voters keep looking for a president to fix our budget, rather than the Congress

    But here is one major problem. When the president does not LEAD and I mean lead HIS party then it does in fact fall back on the president. The president put budgets out there that ZREO members of his party voted for and the president has REFUSED to tell Reid to present a budget as the law requires. Now it is in fact the presidents fault for not holding his own party accountable. Not to mention that he allows Reid to just let the bills from the house pile up without putting them on the floor for debate.

    This president is a “my way or the highway” president so it in fact rests on his shoulders!

  • cathy

    Matthew, I’d love to see term limits in congress. Politicians are buying votes with tax payer money. However, I lay alot of the spending on Obama. He is the one pushing it. Look at what he asked for in the cliff deal. Congress was powerless.

  • usa8888

    Fox “News” , the right wing GOP propaganda arm, is running a biased and distorted story about Al qaeda, claiming that the dems have been soft on Al qadea. Of course, it was Bush who was soft on al qaeda. Obama has killed more al qaeda than ever, including almost all top leaders. Drone stikes have been stepped up and operations against al qaeda in Yemen continue daily. The CIA is at work in Mali and other regions. The GOP has no strategy of plan whatever, except to criticize the fine work the dems are doing. The American people know this–that’s another reason Obama won the election handily….

  • Ratboy

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
    it was Bush who was soft on al qaeda

    What an IDIOT!!! Is that why all you left wing loons wanted to put Bush and Cheney in JAIL for war crimes??? And guess who, go ahead take a guess who started the drone project? Yep thaths right, GW Bush!!! Obama just continues and then stepped it up! How about Gitmo? You know, the one Obama said he was gonna close!!!

    Cant fix stupid!!!!

  • usa8888

    Rat- Bush let Bin Laden escape –he was not concerned. Obama has done five times as much with drones than bush…..

  • usa8888

    Headline NY Times: China is investing bilions of dollars in higher education to take China from a manufacturing economy to a high tech, advanced economy. The right GOP is against spending like this for the US……go figure…..Fortunately , Obama is pushing this….

  • Matthew

    But here is one major problem. When the president does not LEAD and I mean lead HIS party then it does in fact fall back on the president. The president put budgets out there that ZREO members of his party voted for and the president has REFUSED to tell Reid to present a budget as the law requires.

    He can no more make Reid do what he wants than Boehner can get his own caucus to do what he wants; the problem is that, within the Congress, there’s no consequences for dragging your feet. If anything, you risk being primaried if you’re too ‘bipartisan.’

    If Reid passes the sort of budget he can get all his members on board with, it’ll fail in the House; if the House passes a budget that Boehner can get all his members on board with, it’s either DOA in the Senate, or the president will veto it. The ideological gulf is too great, and the electoral consequences for inaction too small; especially since discretionary funds continue to be appropriated.

    Now, before you go on about Reid only needing 51 votes to pass a budget, that’s a non-binding resolution. It’s as meaningless as the House passing a repeal on Obamacare; it’d an empty gesture that achieves nothing on behalf of the people. So long as the Congress is dysfunctional, there isn’t going to be a binding budget hitting the president’s desk.

  • Ratboy

    @ He can no more make Reid do what he wants

    Matt, thats what leaders do!!! Especially when he is the head of the party and it is his party not doing their job!!!!! No spin on this one!

  • Matthew

    Matt, thats what leaders do!!! Especially when he is the head of the party and it is his party not doing their job!!!!! No spin on this one!

    No, it’s both parties not doing their job. The president is not the Legislator in Chief – just because some presidents have steamrolled the Congress, that doesn’t mean that’s the way things should be.

    Now, let’s say he ‘leads’ Reid into passing a budget resolution with 54 votes. Now what? Does it matter at all, other than feeding into a political narrative of painting the Republicans as obstructionist?

  • cathy

    Matthew,

    I disagree. Voting is not a waste of time. People being able to see how their reps vote is very important. I’m tired of hearing the BS of Republicans won’t pass it. Well, darn it. Take the vote and prove it.

  • Ratboy

    You my friend have fallen into the trap! “It aint gonna work anyway so why try”

    the R’s put forth a budget and it passes in the R majority house and then Reid puts forth a budget and it passes in the D majority senate then they can start to at least try to combine and compromise but with out a senate budget there is no chance to even start discussion.

    A real leader would not let this continue! A real leader would intervene. Notice what Obama did with the fiscal cliff? He dumped it in Bidens lap! He does not want to be blamed so pass the buck!

  • Ratboy

    @ five times as much with drones than bush…..

    You dont read so good! It must be the effects of the 4 year coma!
    Without Bush’s drone program Obama would not have had to ability to step it up. One more time, Without Bush’s drone program Obama would not have had to ability to step it up.

    The left siad Bush and Cheney were too mean to the enemy and they should go to jail (but now you say he was too soft :lol: :lol: ) but Obama can drop a bomb at will from a drone and kill people without knowing exactly who is there and he is doing great!

  • Matthew

    the R’s put forth a budget and it passes in the R majority house and then Reid puts forth a budget and it passes in the D majority senate then they can start to at least try to combine and compromise but with out a senate budget there is no chance to even start discussion.

    They’ve had four years to combine and compromise; the last debt ceiling debate was, in essence, a debate over what our annual budgets would look like for the next ten years. We already know what ‘combine and compromise’ looks like with this Congress: kicking the can down the road.

    There are members who 100% will NEVER vote for a tax increase, and members that 100% will NEVER vote for entitlement reform, so with that as our starting point, how do we begin to achieve anything of significance?

  • cathy

    See Matthew, I think Reid does not want to take a budget vote because we’ll see that the democrats aren’t united. And it’s not just republicans be obstructionist.
    We don’t get to see a bill until they vote on it, so we don’t know if the democrats are putting together a reasonable budget and the republicans obstructionist. Or if the democrats are pulling together an extreme high tax and spend budget and republicans are stopping it for the betterment of the country.
    Until they vote the American people can’t put pressure on their reps.
    Vote on some bills, let the American people see what you stand for.

  • cathy

    Darn… Bad news…. Shooting at Lone Star College in Houston……

  • Ratboy

    @ They’ve had four years to combine and compromise

    No they havent! thats the point! With Reid refusing to put out a budget they cant start to talk. For 3 years the senate has not put forth a budget so they have NOT had 4 years to combine and compromise! That is where leadership enters. Obama should have and should sit Reid down and tell him he has to abide by the law and put out a budget. That is what leaders do!

    If I did not hold my people accountable it is not the peoples fault if we fail it is mine! Obama does not want his fingerprints on anything that could shed bad light on him in any way. That is why he just keeps on blaming congress but does nothing to change it!

  • cathy

    Wow… A witness of the Lone Star shooting said, a black male pulled a gun and fired a shot at an administrator, then an other college worker pulled a gun and shot the shooter…. A FBI agent said it was gang related. Wouldn’t count on this info being 100% true. We all know how so times the first information is wrong.

    It looks like only 3 hurt which is good news.

    First I am glad that it was not worse but now look out for the loons to start screaming! (ps good for the worker with the gun!)

  • Matthew

    Until they vote the American people can’t put pressure on their reps.

    Of course they can. Every choice tells people what you stand for, even the choice of inaction. And, lets be clear, the Senate Democratic budget position IS established – their budget position is that following the BCA is adequate. In other words, they’re not interested in: changing taxes, reducing or eliminating certain departments, or expanding other departments, all actions that would necessitate drafting a new budget. There’s a huge difference between refusing to change budget course, and having no budget position.

    You may not agree with that position, but it is a position, and the fact that they’re not being held accountable for that position is a failure on the part of the American voter, which was precisely the point of my original response to d.d. The voters only hold presidents accountable, when it’s the Congress that controls the purse strings.

    No they havent! thats the point! With Reid refusing to put out a budget they cant start to talk.

    Why? And again, how can you claim that core budget disagreements HAVEN’T been a big part of Congressional discussion over the last several years? Inability to agree on taxes and entitlements is precisely why we’ve had years worth of ‘status quo’ budgets; and, for the record, the last debt ceiling compromise is (as per the Senate budget office) considered the de facto FY2013 budget. That’s what Congressional compromise looks like.

  • Hoppy

    The US has agreed to transport troops and equipment for the French to help them with their Mali situation. That’s the same thing Truman agreed to to help them with Viet Nam, and we all know how that turned out.
