It would be nice if Obama was just a sprat in history, but alas, he has fundamentally been changing America into his personal idea of utopia. Doesn't stop the crazy from thinking he's stalking them though. Sad.

Obama the sprat could eat no pork fat,
His wife was not lean
So between them both, you see.
They are petulant, small and mean.

They are making a grotesque political miscalculation, based on the Clinton/Newt issue.

In this case, its already being reported that the House is passing funding bills, Reid wont vote, and Present wont sign.

Clinton, made his bones acting like a moderate. Obama has not.

sprat — the sound an egg makes when it hits the sidewalk after being dropped from a 20-storey office building in Tokyo.

My sympathies on your knee, and hence shots. Had 'em for years when I played hockey (hip, not knee, but same idea naturally).

xsmommy is right, though: think about how good you'll feel!

Ouch! Let me know if it works. My “good” knee is giving me trouble, but I’m not ready to have it replaced. I’m still suffering pains and pangs in my surgical knee and I cn’t face having BOTH knees compromised.

Obama, small-minded sprat, has his character epitomized by his petulant action regarding the aged WWII vets, who played their parts to save America, and became known as the Greatest Generation. He uses "Barry-cades," including tarps, a plastic "Do Not Cross" strap, and other booby traps to block access to their memorial, all to falsely show how the shutdown, falsely blamed on republicans, is hurting Americans.

Thats illogical. There can be no adverse effects, he cannot be re elected.

They have already lost the House. That was the first ill effect.

I have not looked at the SenateDefense numbers.

But, one thing you might notice....is no Democrat Presidential hopeful, is speaking out. In fact Evan Bayh, who plays coy....but is running, consistently eschews the WH.

An early spratfall ... Like Obamacare’s failures getting deliberately ignored by the media.

Yes it has. Newest poll has blame at 25% republicans in House, 24 % Obama.

They are passing bills, and have the message.

Hope you are doing better-

I just can’t be sympathetic
To those who whine like brats-
In my world, folks eat lunches
Of a can of sardines or sprats

Pretty soon no one will wait on you
Or cater to your selfish demands
So spare us the childish whining
And the wringing of your hands

Too bad you can’t jet to Asia-
Because the plebs are upset-
Your legacy is to be forever
Known as Michelle Antoinette...
