Could you have written a better end to BUDGET BATTLE 2011?
World cup final, Down to the wire, 30 seconds left in stoppage time, tied 0 - 0, Brilliant break away to the goal, shot block, rebounded and SCORE from the injured retiring center mid! WOW.
So two or three weeks ago the entire house/senate/white house all go on a 2 week vacation with an impending government shutdown looming on the horizon.
Vacation over and back to work, both sides still miles apart on the budget, Reps claiming Dems are going to bankrupt us, Dems claiming the Reps are going to starve Grandma.
Both leaders Reid/Boehner summoned to the white house to avert the impending shutdown (where we lay of 800,000 non-essential employees, another story). After the meeting both leaders say they cannot work it out...too far apart.
Sunday news shows, CNN, FOX, the coming shutdown, who's to blame?
Last week another meeting for the leaders at the White house, this time, we are closer, but there are still major issues. Everyone preparing for the shutdown.
More hand wringing from the media...Doom, Disaster, the parks will be closed...
Then, Friday night, 90 minutes til the country goes down and......
Crisis averted, 800,000 non-essential workers back to being non-essential.
NATION SAVED!!! WHOOOO HOOOO!!!
Yeah Obama, Yeah Reid, Yeah Boehnerr. Re-elections for everybody!
Is anybody buying this crap from Washington?
Not bad, not bad at all.

is that they actually think we buy this crap. What are they talking, 30 something billion. That's about like me deciding not to buy a coke today.

the only ones buying it are those that still think obama has a clue.
sounds like we need to remove all current Congress people

because they are not getting the job we sent them to DC to do. Even those recently elected caved. Time to remove the lot and replace them with a whole new crew who have to ear marks and promises to keep.

If they have incumbent by there name at the ballot box choose the other guy/gal regardless of party.
These folks need to learn that there ARE term limits when they can't get it right.
It sure as hell applies in my business.
