    The House of GOP writes all appropriation bills.
    Thought you might have known that .

    I commend the Administration for all the efforts they have taken thus-far, however I find it very hard to trust most of Obama's speech tonight. Campaigns and outsmarting ISIS are nice thoughts, and while I don't hope for us to begin another war, it's unrealistic to think that won't become of this situation. I don't want to be lied to, and i'm tired of having a president that dances around the main issues.

    That's why Obama doesn't like the Constitution and is always crapping on the Constitution.

    And the Feds will keep on printing greenbacks with nothing to back them up with and have already spent almost six years propping up Wall Street and the Obama economy.

    How long can the Feds keep doing this ?

    I suppose until 2016 or 2017 and it will not be pretty for America and who's ever in the White House when the Feds stop propping up the economy.

    I don't understand why so many people have issues with teleprompters. Just the sheer magnitude of issues the POTUS has to deal with kind of necessitates a rather heavy use of prepared speeches if only because it'd be so easy for the mind to wonder between issues when trying to do an off-the-cuff speech. I often have the problem of my thoughts going onto tangents when trying to describe things to people, myself, and I haven't near the load the POTUS has.

    Anyway, going after the POTUS--any POTUS--for the use of a teleprompter strikes me as a pretty lame avenue of attack.

    He looked so bored and like he would have rather been on the golf course where he belongs so he can do no further damage to this country..
    Do you lack imagination or just empathy?
    Imagine the issues the POTUS has to deal with on a daily basis, constantly jumping from one to another to another, then back to the first and repeat. That would desensitize and dull the emotional response of anyone. The guy is only human, and seeming unemotional can easily be construed as looking bored.

    Oh. Sorry. Did I get in the road of you just trying to insult him?

    My bad.

    Having played in that town for 15 years, you can bet I'm well aware of that.

    I'm also aware that the final budget is a NEGOTIATED settlement, one in which each side has to give a little to get a little. I'm aware that the DoD proposed budget was $689 billion. I'm also aware that the House propose budget for defense was $600 billion. In addition, I'm aware that the WH proposed a $415 billion budget, but did it on the backs of soldiers thru decreased benefits, increased fees, and elimination of services for the veterans (nobody tells you that the WH budget proposal wanted to cut spending for VA medical services, do they? You know ... the one they went back and asked for extra appropriation when their incompetence and dishonesty was discovered).

    I'm also aware that appropriation bills are not the final budget .. in fact, they rarely resemble each other.

    I am also aware that they settled on $495 billion.

    Thought YOU might want to know that.

    You said it ... back it up.

    The numbers don't lie ... the cuts in DoD budget are Democrat/WH driven. Quit trying to spread untruthfulness.

    He doesn't 'dance around' the main issues .... he LIES about them. Get used to it ... he will tell you whatever he thinks you want to hear.

    I'm jaded. All I can think about the presidents speech is that his supporters and those that were previously against military action are now about to become gods of war, and those that are his detractors are about to clamor for wisdom, patience, exit plans, strategies, and congressional approval to act.
