“”We prefer not to read about it in the press,” Obama said.”

Then STOP doing it, MR. OBAMA...

The man STILL cannot see that HE and the radical Dems are the problem!

Ohh yeah, it was a ploy and lie to get votes.... Obama never was sincere when he said this.

Yeah, Bobby Jindal went to that scumbag Ubama first and got absolutely nowhere. So then he wrote a book, and it is a scathing indictment of Ubama and the useless mice he surrounds himself with.

More likely, the latter. Didn’t Jindal have a hard time getting a response to his urgent requests for help? Why would anyone waste time talking to Obama first?

A governor with back bone:

Dear Citizens:

The federal government threatens to withhold funding from our state for vital projects and concerns.

The money the feds threaten to withhold came your pay checks, and you mailed it to them through an IRS Center.

On April 15, 2011, instead of mailing anything to the IRS, after you figure what you owe, mail your checks to the state revenue service instead, marked, “Diverted for state use; keeping our money at home.”

Local Sheriff’s are not to allow federal agents to harass the citizens of our state over this issue, but to keep the citizens secure in their persons and in their property.

Thank you.
God bless you.
THE GOVERNOR.

Yes. most of the mandates start that way and turn out to be unfunded federal mandates. Where did our Repubilic go?

They still think the Feds
run the show.

Still no belief in the
Constitution.

Because they are on the
Left, they are good and
so whatever they say goes.

Line up behind the morally
superior, you peasants !!

This type of action is the accepted manner of practice in Chicago. The people that practice this do not understand it is wrong. Obama does not understand it is wrong nor does he care.

Wow, sounds like something a nine year old would try.

Someone on this forum has been stating that Obama was acting like a nine year old child. Who was it? Hmmm... Oh yes, it was me.

This guy is stuck in a third or fourth grade mentality.

“The governors’ reactions to this will be interesting.”

Our newly elected governor met with obuma yesterday and told him to stick obumacare where the sun don’t shine.

Place your bets on “this will be interesting.”

(Somewhere in Montana)

“You heard that expression,

“You didn’t know whether to sh** or go blind”?

You should’ve seen the look on the Attorney General’s face.

Did he give his checks-and-balances speech?

“This is about evidence and the truth!”

And then you just said to him,

“F*** you!”

“Hold my cigar, Mr A.G.”

“F*** you!

“The truth is what I say it is!”

You know, you got to be out of the country in the morning.

You’re going to (name the State).

Well, we’re having some problems with the locals.

We have our personnel on the ground ready to neutralise the problem, but...

Well, they’ve requested you.

It’s solvable.”
