This is one Article that really says it all, 4,694 Comments that pretty much sizes up what is happening in this country today and who is responsible.
Here are some just some of them, and you can read the rest at: http://news.yahoo.com/hiatus-obama-returns-campaign-mode-ny-165731221–politics.html
“First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the company that earned the NO-BID contract to build the failed Obamacare website. Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare dot gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company. Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.”
The Lucky One
So here we are in 2013 and our fearless leader is back doing what he loves to do. In front of the camera with a teleprompter in hand. Forget about doing the things the country needs, like creating jobs. So in his head its all about creating crisis so he can run and be elected for another term. Pay attention to what’s coming chaos is this guy’s best friend and he will create it if he has to to stay as the leader of the regime he’s built for himself.
I’m getting real tired of hearing how the Obama and the lead Democrats believe theiy are the only ones who care about people.
I am a stanchly conservative (economic and social) Republican who volunteers 12 hours/week at a food shelf in an inner city. Virtually every volunteer there is conservative. I also am on the board of another charity for assisting inner city youth, and same thing: Virtually every volunteer there is a conservative.
This in a city known for being over 70% “progressive”. It’s the same story at every charity in town I’m aware of.
Obama and the Dem’s like to talk the talk and get photo ops at food shelves (our Democratic senators are in here once a year for 15 minutes for the same thing). But it’s is the Republicans who actually walk the walk.
This is just three of 4,694 comments by people who can see what is happening to this Country, and it is not just the Republicans, sure they do stupid things, but it is the Democrats and President who are doing the blocking and name calling, but you have to admit, it takes to make the right decision, and Democrats are not the voice of the people, both parties are the voice of the people, and not there for them selves.
After hiatus, Obama returns to campaign mode in NY

NEW YORK (AP) — Regrouping with Democrats after a bitter fiscal fight, President Barack Obama on Friday cast the recent spending-and-debt standoff with Congress as “a symptom of a larger challenge” but one offering Democrats the chance to show voters the virtues of their vision for government ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.
After putting politics on hold as a showdown with Congress forced the government to shut down, Obama launched a six-week burst of fundraising for Democrats with a pair of top-dollar events in New York.
He told donors that the impasse, at its core, was “a symptom of a larger challenge,” exposing how American politics, with its intense focus on ideology, have become detached from the problems ordinary Americans face.
“The shutdown was about more than just health care,” Obama told about 60 donors at a fundraiser for House Democrats. “It was about a contrast of visions, about what our obligations are to each other as fellow citizens.”
“And we’ve got the better side of that argument,” Obama added.
Reflecting on the 16-day shutdown a week after it ended, Obama offered the first glimpse at how he and Democrats will seek to frame the crisis in the minds of donors and voters ahead of next year’s pivotal elections. He portrayed the crisis as an opportunity for Democrats to unite behind a vision of broad-based prosperity, where the government has a hand in giving people the tools to succeed.
“We believe that government has a role to play,” Obama said.
Traditionally the president is a party’s most potent fundraising tool, and the effort isn’t without potential reward for Obama. A return of Congress to full Democratic control next year would open the door to sweeping policies Obama would love to enact but Republicans refuse to consider.
