“Both Democratic and Republican leaders in the House and Senate have said they believe it’s important to keep the government running while we work together on a plan to reduce our long-term deficit,” Obama said in his weekly address to the nation Saturday. “Given that, I urge and expect them to find common ground so we can accelerate, not impede, economic growth.”

Do you go to politico and read articles????

I don’t understand why people post politico.

The “weakly address” is just a bunch of leftist talking points.

Because tyrants cannot effect their will on the People when the government stops working. Obama and the left are terrified of the one thing that would aid the cause of freedom more than anything else right now.

[ In his weekly address, President Obama warns Congress against shutdown ]

WHEN it is HIM that will shut it down..
IF he does not sign the resolution(legislation) he WILL shut down the government..
As DEMOCRATS will all grab their faces and "faint"... in faux overload..

It will be quite funny.. Much humor can be made of it..

“Straw men and false choices” should be the Republican mantra right out of the chute when responding to this poser.

Good old tone-deaf Obozo, fear-mongering about imminent shutdown... just days after he spent his time partying away to Motown.

On Wednesday March 16, Obama had the AP (Apritichik Press) Anthony Taylor report that Obama had threaten if the government shuts down Social security checks would not be sent out..

anthony Taylor AP reports now (friday) even if the government shuts down . Current Social Security beneficiaries need not to worry, their paychecks wouldn’t be affected.

here the president tries to cause chaos and confusion by telling the elderly and disabled - guess what people the government shuts down per the Republicans you people will have to resort to dog food and be kicked out of your homes and apartments.

This president is a POS. he has no scruples he will go after the defenseless the poor and downtradden. He is the epitome a parasitic money grabbing SOB.

Democrats are always shutting something down. Barry should step up to the plate, and accept what the adults are suggesting.

They will send him a stopgap bill to keep everything going so not signing it and allowing the government to shut down is on him.

OK. Now I know we have reason to be scarred. The great al-Obama is going to rain down upon us.

Somebody needs to photo-shop some of those ridiculous Gaddafi uniforms on our own national embarrassment.
