"Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., made the mistake of trying to sound tough during an exchange with House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., CNS News reported.

“You say the president has threatened to veto the bill?” Rogers asked.

“No. He hasn’t threatened. He said he absolutely will veto,” McGovern responded.

“He’s drawn a red line, has he?”

“Yep,” McGovern answered.

And the room burst into laughter."

I’m sure there were bursts of laughter in the Kremlin at that one too. No doubt Putin caught the irony of the joke as well.

Thanks, liberals, for putting this poser in power. Thanks a lot for bringing great harm to this once-fine nation.

Sad to say, however, already being $15,000,000,000,000+ in the red, that line has long since been crossed…

so if the National parks only closed as of midnight last night, who put up the shutdown signs? Did the Dems do that in advance?

and note how they emphasize (all caps) SHUTDOWN?

Wouldn’t a sign that just said “closed” be sufficient?

Why not go all the way and have the sign say:

“This park CLOSED because of women-and-children-hating TEA BAGGERS and REPUBLICANS”

The sign caught my eye. They have plenty of money to print signs.

Yes, and also evidently plenty of advance time. Gives one pause that 'they' wanted a 'SHUTDOWN' (their CAPS..not mine) to redirect/blame/corruption/treason/accusation the government closure on the Republicans.

My wife have visited the World War Two Memorial. It’s beautiful. Her late father served in the 4th. Marine Division. He survived Saipan(wounded), Tinian, and Iwo Jima(wounded again.)

Abortion has a red line, too, and that has not been washed away.

Poll at the original site:
Ted Cruz vows to use all ‘means available’ to block ObamaCare. Do you support that approach?
Yes: 95%

They close down the things that the public sees, and keep sending billions to terrorists in the middle east.

So what's 0Dumbo gonna do? Throw a golf club at them? Take away their Air Force One privileges? Throw a hissy fit? Maybe it's time for a beer summit? How about he sends them all iPods with recordings of his speeches? Forcibly changes their drapes?

There is nothing undeserved in this mockery.
