    Pete Sessions

    So, it turns out that, during the meeting of Republicans with Obama, in the failed attempt to stop the government shutdown, Pete Sessions told Obama that he couldn't stand to look at him. So what do you think?

    He did not say that. Someone whose name I should know in the Administration was shown on Fox News saying he had spoken to several people in attendance, and that was never said.

    I don't know what Mr. Sessions reasons are, but I, personally, have no problem admitting that watching/listening to Obama makes me nauseous and whenever he is shown on TV I change the channel. It's not because of how he looks or the colour of his skin - it's that the man is a bald faced liar and the way the media fawns over him makes me sick. It's like a bad joke and I'm not participating.

    The Senator from Michigan, Durbin, is the one that spread the story, which the White House denies - but Durbin is standing by his take on the matter.

    Durbin is Illinois's democratic senator, not Michigan's. Michigan's senators are Carl Levin and Debbie Stabinow.

    Pretty much par for the course for the right if true.

    Based on what I've read, and based on the White House, I think it's a lie: Sources: Word of alleged rude GOP comment came from WH deputy chief of staff – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    In my defense and in defense of the right, you have to admit that President Obama is far over-exposed and his preachy, aloof, superior persona is very off-putting particularly if you can't stand the man's politics and you can't believe the fool got elected not once, but twice.

    Re: Pete Sessions

    So the left doesn't believe the WH that denies something was said because they really want what was said to have been said?

    That is a first--the apologist have to betray Caesar because Caesar has given them so little to work with these days and they need something to pass the time in the two hours it takes them just to get their name sent to the Obamacare website, let alone their address.
