Good move Joe. Wish I had done the same. Betting on Obummer to screw up is unfortunately a no-brainer. He's busy trying to blame the Republicans when he won't even negotiate. He's trying to make the shutdown as painful as possible (closing open air parks for Vets). Whatever happened to Presidential leadership?
5 years of blaming "Bush" and now looks like we'll get 3 years of blaming the Tea Party.
Did you hear Obummer last week trying to talk down the markets and threatening to default on debt (rather than just other payments)? Have we ever had a President before trying to talk down the markets like that? Can you imagine if a corporate CEO tried to talk down their stock like that? If Obummer was a Russian spy planted to destroy the US economy, he couldn't be doing a better job.
Yup. The gummit paid a fortune to rent temporary barriers, and paid people overtime to come build barricades around the Lincoln Memorial, the WWII memorial, and most other popular spots. What next? Close L'Enfant Plaza to traffic? Shut down Arlington National Cemetary? How about the B-W Parkway (295)? Hell, shut down Interstate 95 while you're at it, hmmmmmkay?
Blatant pandering to the lowest common denominator among spineless pols.
