By Bob L. You mite not like my comments, it s like they say if the truth hurts, tough, but that is how I see it.

Top Democrats at war – with each other, I think it is with any one who gets in their way, if you have not noticed they think the Americans work for them, and we are to clean up up after them.

POLITICO

President Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will be all smiles as the president arrives at the Capitol for his State of the Union speech Wednesday night, but the happy faces can’t hide relationships that are fraying and fraught.

The anger is most palpable in the House, where Pelosi and her allies believe Obama’s reluctance to stake his political capital on health care reform in mid-2009 contributed to the near collapse of negotiations now.

But sources say there are also signs of strain between Reid and White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, and relations between Democrats in the House and Democrats in the Senate are hovering between thinly veiled disdain and outright hostility.

In a display of contempt unfathomable in the feel-good days after Obama’s Inauguration, freshman Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) stood up at a meeting with Pelosi last week to declare: “Reid is done; he’s going to lose” in November, according to three people who were in the room. Continue reading

Obama’s goal: Get agenda moving, people believing

By Bob L.    How I see what is happening in this Country.

This should have been the TOP priority over any thing else, but no Obamacare, Climate change, and what ever else was more important then getting people back to work, that shows just how much he cares about the United States, his priority’s are for any other Country then here.

As far as believing, I don’t believe one thing that he is doing or trying to do, it is just a cover up like every thing else he does.

Until I see Companies come back to this Country then maybe, but until they bring taxes down to bring them back, it will never happen, look at states that lower their taxes, Companies move in, and why are taxes so high, I don’t know, or is it so much is spent on special interest programs that is to keep them happy.

It is just like schools, the three R s and training for jobs should be top priority, but they spend a lot of money on bowling, archery, you get the idea, other thing are more important, it should be if you want those programs then you pay for it your self, don’t make the taxpayer pay for it.

WASHINGTON – Facing a divided Congress and a dissatisfied nation, President Barack Obama will unveil a jobs-heavy agenda in his State of the Union address Wednesday, retooling his message more than his mission.

His goal: Get the economy, the confidence of voters and his own presidency on surer footing.

Obama’s speech will be underpinned by two themes — reassuring millions of Americans that he understands their struggles and convincing people that he is working to change Washington even as he finds himself working within its old political ways.

The 9 p.m. EST address has enormous stakes for Obama. He rode a tide of voter frustration into office and now is getting smacked by it himself. Continue reading

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner denied any role in disclosures about American International Group’s payments to banks and defended his decisions as New York Federal Reserve chief to pay full price to retire AIG credit default swaps.

Geithner, in prepared testimony for a much-anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday, said protracted demands for concessions from banks in late 2008 could have triggered devastating credit rating downgrades and brought AIG down, with “catastrophic” consequences for the U.S. economy.

Geithner’s testimony is widely seen as important for his future as Treasury chief. He has denied acting in the interests of specific institutions. Continue reading
