I think he’s well below 37 percent. The media are propping his numbers up for as long as they can.

I think he’s closer to 25 percent.

Obama is on a Jihad. It’s his way or the highway.

Crybaby President wants “his” way.

He’s a dictator. He is not a President. He wants to dictate the terms.

Could anyone imagine any other president (even Carter or Clinton) withholding death benefits to the troops?

Sadly people treat this like it's a normal thing.

Carter, for all that he is a socialist richard with ears, was a Naval officer, and had a clue about respect for the military.

Clinton hated the military.

The Fisher House folks stepped into the void thinking this would be temporary, they are in for a big surprise. The President can not do this, it is clearly a violation of the constitution. Congress can only do this(finance). I fear this is but a dress rehearsal for more crisis to come. Pray

Maybe the funding should come from moving President Obama from the Whitehouse to the basement of an Outhouse.

Fisher House stepped forward because the government was not paying the families and something had to be done immediately. The Marine Family Organization also stepped forward to help families of Marines killed. The truth is the Pentagon brought up this issue to the media FOUR days before the shutdown happened, plenty of time for something to be done to get the families the money. Obama and most of our Senators just did not care. Only when it got publicity was it addressed in any way- then the House voted to get them paid and the Senate made a statement that they were not planning to bring it up at all. Obama is once again speaking to his voters that will not bother to find out the truth.

As has been exhibited time and time again, the Kenyan clown and his regime have no respect for American traditions or values. Why should he care? His upbringing was to hate this country.

Has anyone seen Valarie Jarrett recently?

Last night O’Reilly (rightly) called for the removal of Hagel from office over this death benefit fiasco. Tonight he should be calling for the removal of Obama.

Definitely.

I don’t know how anyone could make an argument that he should STAY in office??

He should be GONE.

Agree, and I'm beginning to wonder if it's even as high 25%. He's already ticked off some unions with his Zippycare.

I totally agree.

These people are SO out of touch with America.. the polls aren’t even showing just how bad this is hurting them.

That’s fine. They’ll find out come election time.

True Clinton hated the military, but I don’t think even he would deny death benefits like the Kenyan is doing. Clinton did grow up in the South, not Southeast Asia.

Glen Beck was saying this today. The president has NO authority to borrow money on his own.

What Obama has done is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!! He does not have the authority to fund any federal activity, only the HOUSE can do that. Impeachable offense?

“One of these days he will be caught telling the truth.”

Years ago there was a video out of Chicago. I believe it was while he was running for Senator. In this video Obama made the statement “I was born in Kenya”I had no way to save it at the time or even a reason to think I needed to.
