Show me where I said it was one or the other? It takes 2 to pass this right?

Also, this maybe hard for the 2 of you to understand, but if this happened in 2010, when did the repubs take control of the house? I'm not talking November 6th when they won.....

How can you 2 just agree that it was ONLY the repubs that cut funding when it had to be passed by the senate also, which was controlled by the DEMS? So obviously the DEMS agreed the security should have been cut also or they would not have passed it through the senate....

Can't wait!

You'll be a very unhappy boy on November 7th.

I NEVER said it was ONLY the GOP. What part of "of which the GOP controls HALF" do you not understand? I have no problem with cutting the budgets. What I have a problem with is cutting the budgets THEN screaming bloody murder when there is an issue. If you choose to cut the budgets then you have to accept your share of the responsibility for the results. Clearly the GOP is trying to weasel out of that.

Yep, they luv the concept and talking point of "small government" but not the reality of their "small government". CAREFUL what you ask for teabaggers, you might not like the results.

Really?


Sunday Swing State Polls Analysis: OH, FL, VA, IA, WI, NV, CO, NH, NC, National Polls Converge, Point to Obama Victory

You sure?

Final Swing State Polls Analysis & Thoughts On Who Will Win

Maybe it's one more hour until Romney gives his concession speech?

You're being ignorant by assuming very early on that Romney is going to win this race.

More than likely Obama is going to win; however, Romney *can* win this. It'll just be very difficult for him to do so. It all boils down to voter turnout now.
