    Can't agree. I didn't hear Boehner - had to run out for a bit, but I just read it.

    The president is adamant that we cannot make fundamental changes to our entitlement programs. As the father of two daughters, I know these programs won't be there for them and their kids unless significant action is taken now.

    The sad truth is that the president wanted a blank check six months ago, and he wants a blank check today. That is just not going to happen.
    And in response to BO's nakedly transparent "kick the can down the road" dodge,

    The individuals doing this work will not be outsiders, but elected representatives of the people, doing the job they were elected to do as outlined in the Constitution. Those decisions should be made based on how they will affect people who are struggling to get a job, not how they affect some politician's chances of getting reelected.
    You know, I've always believed, the bigger government, the smaller the people. And right now, we have a government so big and so expensive it's sapping the drive of our people and keeping our economy from running at full capacity.

    The solution to this crisis is not complicated: if you're spending more money than you're taking in, you need to spend less of it.

    Right, it's far too risky. Either way he loses on that one. If the courts slap him down, it's over. Even if not, he's the guy that continued to put us further into debt.

    Looks like a bunch of talking points designed to appeal to conservartives, to me.

    Re: BREAKING: President Obama Addresses the Nation Tonight at 9

    Let's be perfectly honest and summarize both speeches:

    Obama: Boehner and the Tea Party sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.

    Boehner: I'm rubber and you're glue, anything you say bounces off of me and sticks to you.

    More crap. Prime time speeches (from both sides) are nothing more than free campaign spots. So over the all the crap. They need to stop pandering and start working.

    Because you are cutting the current tax revenue meaning they are losing money. Hence why it is considered a cost.

    I grew up with Rob Portman. He called my dad "Uncle" as I called his father. His late mother, dying of cancer, threw an engagement party for my wife and I. We didn't know she was dying. The second time my wife and I attended a service in the cathedral where we were wed was for his mother's funeral. My dad was a close friend of Steve Chabot and ran a campaign for him many years ago for a minor office. Steve came in quietly to my dad's funeral. when one major league republican asked him about some political bit Steve said "not the time or the place, I am here as a friend of the man not as a politician"
