-In 2010, U.S. Senators pulled $72,370 out of the "Senate Restaurant Fund".
-In 2010, U.S. Senators took $166,673 out of something called the "Senate Gift Shop Revolving Fund".
-In 2010, an average of $4,005,900 of U.S. taxpayer money was spent on "personal" and "office" expenses per Senator.
You do know those cost really aren't that bad. Now I'm concerned about the Senate restaurant fund. Have you ever tried US Senate Bean Soup? It's a gas!

I honestly love how many of the Republicans and Conservatives on this board are crying wolf while pointing the finger at Obama.

There's more at play than what's being put out there, but you all knew that about it.

Please continue on with crackpot theories and frothing at the mouth - this Centrist will be laughing at you the whole way.

Say hello to 4 more years of Obama.

What unconstitutional acts? You do realize there are checks and balances yes? Or do you have so little faith in your Republican/Conservative politicians that you just lay down for Obama in the end?

Figured as much - all bark and no bite. Pathetic.

Anyway, Obama hasn't done anything unconstitutional and if he had, he would have been impeached by now.

Say hello to 4 more years of Obama.

If Hussein is reelected he will have hard times. His campaign is an anti-Romney one,not based on his first term. It is likely IF he wins that he will do so below 50% approval. Think Bush Jrs 2nd term.

You must not be very good at googling..........from his own mouth.

Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight. But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?
That's exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun," Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. "Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I've seen Eagles fans."

So basically the quote that was written was poorly written but obviously Obama did say that....though it sounded more like Obama saying we shouldn't let Republicans drive the car. Which makes sense why only Fox News would be the ones freaking out about such a comment.
