Governor Mike Huckabee makes a great point when he said this...

"For weeks, President Obama painted a bleak portrait of the devastation that awaited if the 2.4 percent spending cut took effect. But just before Friday's deadline, he pulled back, reassuring us that it would not be Armageddon, as some had said. And by "some," he meant himself. Look, these cuts won't be painless, especially not with "some" politicians trying to make them as painful as possible. But between the payroll tax hike, the doubled gas prices and the drop in incomes, most Americans have had to cut their own spending by far more than 2.4 percent. Huckabee said when he was governor of Arkansas, he  had to cut spending by 10 percent. Somehow, schools stayed open and police still answered calls. In fact, if nobody in Washington can figure out how to cut 2.4 percent, then here's his  suggestion: pick six former governors, three from each party, and give them 2 hours and lunch. They'll find that much to cut before the fried pies arrive.

I am in the TV business.

I'm a manager.

I have to do it all the time.

The dems keep talking about the dividend from GM.

They tell us what a great deal the general motors bailout was.

Make up the 2.4% with the dividend.

Oh, that's right, silly me.

There is all the money we saved with green energy.

Oh, that's right too.

As Lee Iacocca once said, any decent manager can cut 5% with no pain.

If they can't, they should not be running a Kool-aide stand, much less the federal government.

Most Kool-aide stands are run better.

That's my point of view what's yours?

We are still paying for two unfunded wars that the Republicans thought were a *great* idea.

What about Libya, Yemen, and supporting the Syrian rebels? You're a stupe to believe that there is a difference in our government's actions because of what party name occupies the Whitehouse.

Communist rule book? What? Pardon me if I don't follow. Perhaps you meant to post on the "flouride in the water" conspiracy page.

Remember, if you haven't the courage to stand-up against a government gone awry then, let it be known that you support those that will.

If you will look at all of the decisions, appointments that Obama makes collectively, then you will see that this is intentional. He means to take America down within the next 3 yrs and nine months. It is happening before your very eyes. He is following the Communist Rule book. There will be more decisions based upon that rule book. He has a lot of useful idiots to serve his purpose in achieving that goal.

Katie, itis no more Obama then it was Bush, no more democrats then republicans that has turned our nation into a socialist police state. Learn to follow the money, then you'll know the ziotruth.

They don't want to cut ANYTHING. Lately Democrats have been floating the idea of taking over everyone's 401k and use it to spend and in place will be paper IOUs. Yes just like Social Security.

Did I mention it has already been done? Argentina did it, nationalizing all retirements, about six years ago. And today Argentina is BROKE and all their retirements are just paper IOUs (and that is why all the Falklands war rhetoric!)

Democrats won't cut anything cause there is no money it it for them.

Didn't know Catholic right-of-rightwing conspirators were so consistently and stupidly vocal...as for your incredibly moronic premise that the present administration is out to get everyone's everything, this is profoundly and incredibly a demonic fantasy either you've cooked up in your small mind, or your idols beck, hannity, rush, and/or faux news have spoon-fed you so long you believe the junk. Where do you get the lies you try to share? You, katie, charles, and all other nuts are loons!
