Yeah, guess Obama took down the plaque on the president's desk in the Oval Office that once said, "The buck stops here."
He probably changed it out to read, "The buck stops anywhere but here."
While President Obama was attending a series of fundraisers in Minnesota on Friday, he made the unexpected decision to pardon an (adorable) criminal he met at one of the functions. Tyler Sullivan is in the fifth grade, according to HyperVocal, and he skipped school on Friday to attend go to work with his dad, Ryan Sullivan. The President was scheduled to make an appearance at the Honeywell factory where the elder Sullivan works. The Sullivan two would up meeting the President, and Obama didn't hesitate to whip out the Presidential parchment and write a note to Tyler's fifth grade teacher Mrs. Ackerman explaining his absence. A "he was with me!" note from the President should do the trick!

Yes I would mind; and that's funny, I was going to say that if the public tax payer has to pay for religious indoctrination; well then it would have to be fair; christian, Hebrew school, Muslim schools, and on and on, I'm sure you can't fathom that.
I have no use for organized religion, it's a business and teaches people to hate others. I'm sure that is not what God intended.
I sent my children to Lutheran school and paid for it myself. After middle school, they went to public high school. Everyone has a choice, pay for it.

That's interesting; so you want to control when and how people have sex too?
You don't want them to have sex
You don't want them have birth control
You don't want them to get pregnant before marriage
You don't want them to have an abortion

Here's a hint dummy; the state is raising 500,000 unwanted kids in fostercare.
Birth control pills is a cheap solution.

Since February, more than 400,000 workers in 25 states have lost access to the federal Extended Benefits program, which previously provided a final 13 to 20 weeks of unemployment insurance to the longest-term unemployed.

[W]hat distinguishes this last recession and its slow recovery is the unprecedented level of long-term unemployment. Of our nation's more than 12.7 million unemployed, more than 5 million -- 42%-- have been out of work for six months or longer. Nearly one in three have been out of work for more than a year.

It was explained to Obama that the permitting process can delay projects for "months to years ... and in many cases even cause projects to be abandoned ...

I'm sure that when you implemented the Recovery Act your staff briefed you on many of these challenges." At this point, Obama smiled and interjected, "Shovel-ready was not as ... uh .. shovel-ready as we expected." The Council, led by GE's Jeffrey Immelt, erupted in laughter.

Not true.

The March, 2009 bail-outs saved GM, AIG and the banks. Financial markets stabilized. Unemployment hit a peak of 9.8%.

Not convincing.

The recession began under Bush. We were losing over 500,000 jobs per month.

One of the standard remedies for fighting economic downturns is to keep money flowing through the system.

That's what every president has done since FDR, including GW Bush when he first came into office.

The problem for Obama is this recession is huge and outside of the March, 2009 bail-outs, the GOP Congress has been uncooperative.

It's been obvious from the beginning they want the recession to continue so they can make the arguments you've been making.

"The munitions addressed in the report were produced in the 1980s, Maples said. Badly corroded, they could not currently be used as originally intended, Chu added.

While that's reassuring, the agent remaining in the weapons would be very valuable to terrorists and insurgents, Maples said. "We're talking chemical agents here that could be packaged in a different format and have a great effect," he said, referencing the sarin-gas attack on a Japanese subway in the mid-1990s."

The agent inside those "rusted canisters" were a threat.

Why is Obama attacking capitalism?

“Hey, let’s keep talking about Bain Capital!”

Mitt Romney proudly rolled out Bain’s investment history, in which their businesses succeeded in boosting profit and viability in 80% of the cases — keeping in mind that private-equity firms and especially Bain tend to focus on already-troubled firms. Only 5% of their bets resulted in bankruptcy later, which is a rather remarkable record for a private-equity firm.
