    There is only three choices here, obama cut the budget, obama who ostensibly meets with his dept of Homeland security on a regular basis was unaware the budget had been cut or he knew someone cut the budget and shrugged his shoulders. none of these options are good for obama.

    No matter how you slice it, the budget is Congress' responsibility.
    Where are these "congress is responsible" people when the left starts blathering on about Clintons so called surplus?

    The same place the "Obama is responsible" people go when we point out that Obama has reduced the deficit

    If you too single visioned to see past your hatred of obama and realize that no president has the kind of power that people seem to think they do. Bottom line, Congress controls the spending and levies taxes, it's in the Constitution. Congress has authority over Homeland security, They created that monster.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    I gave you the only three options there are and none of them made obama look very good. You did not address that because your obama love won't let you.

    Being a person that doesn't live his life in an alphabet world I'm able to see that both the Dems and Reps are equally to blame for the condition of this Country. I'm still waiting for your answers to the questions I posed to you. Let me refresh your memory.

    In your opinion,how much would be the right amount to spend?
    Let's say we spent 50 million how would that prevent these types of bombings?
    How much money does safety cost and how much surveillance do you think is required on the citizens to prevent these types of things from happening?
    Are you willing to be stopped and searched everytime you leave your house or job?
    How about when you're walking down the street and a cop just wants to search you for bombs?

    Start your own thread. This thread ask if obama should restore the money he cut for IED domestic terrorism, it is you who won't answer and wants to derail the thread. I voted, I voted yes.

    I thought i had answered your questions, perhaps i missed one. By all means repost it and I'll answer it to the best of my ability.

    The questions I asked do in fact pertain to this thread. You said he should restore the money that was cut from IED domestic terrorism. Would you be satisfied if the 11 mill was restored or do you think it should be increased. If so then how much should it be increased by. How much of your freedom are you willing to give up for the safety you're looking for? Would you be willing to have your person searched when you went into a public place, how about your wife's purse or your kids backpack?

    Wait, if congress is responsible for the budget, how does Obama reduce the deficit? So the left would be wholly responsible for the last two "Bush" budgets also right? Since "No matter how you slice it, the budget is Congress' responsibility."

    NM sorry for derailng.
