Speaker Boehner -- I don't know if he just found them, or if he just finally decided to use those two things between his legs. You, go, John! The president said the Republicans are unwilling to compromise. He and Senate Majority Leader Reid need only to look into the mirror to see who is unwilling to compromise. The President wants to claim his eleventh-hour "demand" that he be given an "additional" $800Billion in new taxes. Mr. Boehner says he is working on a two-part plan to raise the debt-ceiling. Don't do it without a stiff dose of cutting back some of those expenses and don't do it on the backs of the people who have paid and paid into Social Security and Medicare for all those years. Their the only recipients of those "entitlements" who are actually entitled to them.
Representative Bachmann is holding firm as well. She has offered the President a seat on the bus beside her as she goes through Iowa, South Carolina, etc. so that he can give the people his views as they listen to Ms. Bachmann's view. I wonder if he will meet her at the bus stop? I sincerely doubt it. It might be good for the country as it would accomplish two things. 1) it would give him a chance to actually meet some "unrehearsed constituents" and it would give him a chance to try to speak impromptu without a prompter.
I saw Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on "Huckabee". What a nice man he is! The Israelis' have really had a rough deal. Lots of uninformed and probably uneducated people continue to say the Israeli's should give back Palestine to the Palestinians. To them I say, read a little and find out that the Palestinians are "Johnny-come-latelys. The Israelis' had been there since approximately 2100 B.C. before they were ousted by the Romans in the early years of the A.D. period until 1948 when they were officially recognized as a country. Reading is a good thing. Really!
