gas_too_high - "The House has been making attempts to do so. But their passed bills languish in the Senate under Harry Reid and his Democrats."

Near as I can tell, none of those bills has anything to do with actually solving any problems.

OTOH, if all you're interested in is promoting political ideology, no matter who that hurts (as long as it's not your wealthy owners)....

What does Obama do when the world is falling apart or when there is a crisis? He plays golf or goes fundraising.

Interesting that no response has been forthcoming. When ones lies are shown for all to see, it is easier I guess to just pretend they don't exist rather than own up to them.

Unbelievable but true. Maybe he's the bringing to real life of Superman's Bizzarro?

From your anti-religious posts, one can only imagine "your extreme mental depression and… is fueled by" anti-religion " addiction/psychosis mental illness... all addictions, including" anti-religion" addiction, are based around a central core of mental depression... you need to break free of your Anti- religion addiction BEFORE it causes your suicide..

Then again, with your being anti-religious it wouldn't matter in the slightest. God's justice for us all.

"I believe that God gave us the leaders, not that he WANTS for us, but,
rather, that we deserve. He did it in Israel, giving them Saul as their first earthly king (1Samuel 8:6-9:17) Although it grieved Him that He had been rejected by Israel, He gave them what they asked for--what they deserved.

And He did it in America. Barack Obama is our Saul. We deserve Barack Obama because we were silent--as prayer was taken out of public schools, as the value of life was diminished in the name of choice, as morality was destroyed for the benefit of desire. America remained silent. Rejecting the Christian foundation given to us by our Founding Fathers, a new leader was desired. One who would bring “change.” One who believed, “…where we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation…”

End Times in America !

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., described the lack of communication between the White House and Congress as "stunning." He said he first learned many details of Obama's border request from news reports. Obama is the "only person in America who can sign something into law and help bring members of his party on board for an outcome on a given piece of legislation that requires bipartisan support," McConnell said in an interview. "So it's a mystery, but that's the way they operate." Several Democratic lawmakers echoed McConnell but spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid alienating the president of their party. They said they were baffled by the White House's tactics in handling the border request. Several Democrats expressed frustration that the president and administration officials weren't more involved in legislative fights.

Sorry, jd, but everything you've linked to, and everything I've been able to find, says that it was just a rumor. And says nothing about any Obama spokesperson and any earnest money.

Of course, some then go on as if it was proven fact, but that's typical politics these days.

jd - Note, near the top, "The White House has said the rumors aren't true, but the paper reports local real estate agents, speaking on the condition of anonymity, have confirmed the Obamas are the buyers."

So, basically nothing firm, just more rumor.

And nothing about "mentioned by an obama spokesperson that they had put ernest money on the property".
