    The budget was due before October 1, 2010 for fiscal year 2010. The Obama Budget was defeated in the Senate by a 95-0 vote as it wasn't serious at all and he still isn't serious about cutting spending. where is his specific plan to cut spending? I don't know how anyone can say Obama is doing his job. His job is to lead and he has no leadership skills so maybe he doesn't know that what he is doing is dictating not leading. A leader would put out his own proposal for spending cuts. Let me know when Obama does that?

    And they aren't. But, they also lie about $3 cuts in spending for each $1 tax increase.

    Now, ask yourself and be honest about it...why did the Senate vote that way?

    No, the irresponsible is not shutting down deficit spending. The Republicans are more than willing to raise the debt ceiling. It's the Democrats who want to lie about tax cuts yet again rather than just cutting spending.

    You have Blue-Dog Democrats amongst Liberals as you have Tea Party hardline conservatives among Republicans. Speaker Boehner isn't President, but he's having no better luck convincing members of his party to act in the best interest of the country and work with him than Pres. Obama had with conservative Democrats early in his presidency. That's why you need someone who is able to force "compromise" when you can't get your way 100%.
    There are far too many that misinterpretted the Obama "Hope and Change" Message in that they believed it meant one thing whereas Obama meant it another way. Too many buy the rhetoric, are brainwashed, overwhelmed by the youth, vigor, and smile but ignore the incompetence. You can never delegate responsibility which is what Obama does all the time. You can delegate authority but never responsibility. Someone Obama doesn't understand that.

    And Democrats think they are God and want to be the ones that punish people for their sins, rather than God Himself.
