    Im not viewing things through the partisan glasses you are (per the usual). I know Hillary will be a formidable opponent. However, Rubio and Paul definitely have something for her. Neither is a Romney/Santorum/Gingrich. Every serious candidate the GOP has didn't show up for 2012 because Pres Obama looked to be unbeatable. In 2016, that isn't the case. It will be up for grabs. Hillary is formidable, but she's no Obama. Benghazi, mark my words, will be an issue. Regardless of what you think, something fishy happened there and she was the Sec of State when it happened. I don't believe any opponent on the right, and maybe even on the left, will let that go without it being mentioned.

    It's the individual political parties that have double standards.

    My party believes there should be different standards when it comes to American citizens and non-citizens.
    That all Americans should have the same Constitutional rights and protections. That non-citizens shouldn't have all of the same rights.

    Where as the Democrat Party believes that all Americans aren't equal. That some Americans should have more rights and protections than the majority. But the Democrats go further, they believe that non-citizens and illegal aliens should have more rights than American citizens. Like having access to the National Mall when access is denied to American citizens.

    But I thought our rights came from God, not the Constitution. Are you saying that non-citizens have a different Creator?


    Regardless, I think Congresspersons of either party should be at the Capitol working on a solution to the shutdown. Preferably with the door locked until they come up with something. If we cut off their paychecks and locked them in a papal-style conclave we'd have a solution really quick.

    G.W. Bush wouldn't allow pictures to be taken when meeting with the families of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

    Ronald Reagan never needed a photo-op with the troops. He loved the U.S. military and those who served. And the U.S. military already knew it and they loved him. Reagan didn't even have to earn the respect of those who were serving or had served, he already had their respect.
    Why would the troops have any respect for Barrack Obama? He didn't support them in Iraq and after supporting Afghanistan he then announced a retreat, leaving them there to die for no good reason. (Shades of Benghazi!) The troops probably make him very nervous and the Dems will certainly not getting of their votes, as well they know.

    You probably haven't heard that Obama refuses to negotiate and Reid has already turned down offers to reopen the National Parks and Veterans Affairs. Who would Cruz negotiate with??

    A very serious question would be WHY is Hillary a serious candidate.

    If my suggestion of locking them in were followed, he'd have plenty of people to negotiate with. 534 of them to be exact.

    What troops did the POTUS leave there to die, for no reason?
