    Current polls are indicating otherwise, but I agree it's not over yet!

    Obama and the idiots are spending more money to close open exhibits that is spent when they are open. Has nothing to do with the shutdown.
    The House T's have voted to pay people for not working. It has everything to do with their shutdown.

    The current polls are irrelevant. The only poll that matters is the one that re-elected the President who gave us ObamaCare and defeated the one whose only domestic policies were running against it and cutting taxes on the rich.

    If there were another Presidential election today, Obama would win in a landslide even bigger than his first two.

    The current polls are showing what the people are thinking today, not in the past. People change their minds all the time, which is why I stated "it's not over yet."

    Good day Polgara

    People do change their minds. If you remember back in April or early May of 2009 CNN with Wolf Blitzer did a special on Obama's first 90 days in office. CNN conducted a survey of only those voters who voted for Obama in 2008. When the results were revealed live on CNN by Blitzer, you may have remembered the expression on Blitzer face when the results were released. 15 % of those who voted for Obama said they believe they may have made a mistake voting for Obama.

    By 2010 and 2011 even MSNBC was hinting that Obama might be a one term President.

    During 2012 Obama ran on lies, cover ups, and misinformation to be given a second chance and reelected. It seems to have worked.

    For any young people out there who are seriously thinking of getting involved in politics and running for elected office here's a sure way of getting elected to public office. Start with getting involved with Chicago politics and read Sauhl Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals." It's a no brainier and a shoe in into a political career. Who knows, you could be President some day.

    Since when does the Executive Branch write laws and spend money?

    It's pretty funny how you try to insult someone who demonstrated they understand how the budget impacts services when you clearly do not.

    I know, I believe I said that though I'm sorry if it wasn't clear.

    I used the article to show why the parks were closed because many people don't quite understand why and continue to badger about it.

    I then asked them to realize that along with the fact these parks had to be closed, Obama really had no direct part in the shutdown, it was primarily caused by the congressional republicans.

    Definitely not interested! I've got enough people in my life already telling me what I am doing wrong! Some I pay, like my attorney and CPA--the rest I ignore! Fortunately I don't golf, either!

    Apparently you chose to listen to talk radio instead of read.

    While the numbers are historic, they’re not dramatically larger than 2010 deportations, which were reported at “more than 392,000.”

    As Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano alluded a few weeks ago, 55 percent of the deported immigrants — about 216,700 people — had criminal convictions (felonies or misdemeanors). Overall, the number of criminals deported has increased 89 percent since 2008.

    This emphasis on criminal deportations is in line with changes the administration says it’s made in response to criticism (from social justice groups and state governors alike) that its Secure Communities program — a high-tech way of tracking immigration violators via fingerprint data — is sowing fear and deporting low-level offenders (or people without records at all).

    But questions remain about what kind of criminals are being deported. ICE’s press release states that 87,547 had been convicted of either homicide, sexual offenses, drug-related crimes or driving under the influence. This is only about 40 percent of the total number of criminal deportations. But the release doesn’t indicate how many had low-level offenses on their record.

    ICE says that 19.6 percent of detainees were repeat immigration violators, and 11.6 percent were border removals. Border Patrol apprehensions and prosecutions for illegal re-entry have dropped dramatically in the past five years, from 1,089,092 in 2006 to 463,382 in 2010. While not all Border Patrol apprehensions result in ICE removals, observers suggest that it’s fair to assume a corresponding decline. The increase in overall deportation numbers suggests that ICE is relying more on “interior” enforcement to meet its goal, mandated by Congress, of 400,000 deportations per year.
    Just read what you said a few times and think about it some.
    Do you honestly think that Obama has lied about anything?
    Why would Obama "count" anything? He has enough responsibilities without counting deportations.
    Why would Obama lie about deporting more? Deporting more loses Obama votes. Obama can pander to Teabaggers all he wants... he will not gain one single vote.
    But he stood to lose plenty of votes by having more deportations.
    Apply some logic. If he was gonna lie, he would conceal the deportations.
