I fired one off to Webster last nite.

Thank you for bringing him up. I was at the vet when I posted before and didn't have time to post more...

Alan Grayson, loudmouth that he was, was a man of principle. He would have never gone against his beliefs for a quick buck. Yet, he was voted out of office and the career politician criminal idiot Webster brought back in in a new role.

Another point. Sometimes, as much as it hurts, a politician must do what he doesn't want.

Obama/Holder on Guantanamo and the KSM trial. Their hands were tied...they had no other choice. Although I don't agree with the decision yesterday, I understand and appreciate what they had to do.

THEN

Quote
At 10:51 a.m. on Thursday, the speaker of the House took questions from reporters about the tick-tick-tick toward a possible government shutdown. "Democrats are rooting for a government shutdown," said John Boehner. "Our goal is to cut government spending, not shut down the government.


NOW

Quote
House Republicans huddled late Monday and, according to a GOP aide, gave the speaker an ovation when he informed them that he was advising the House Administration Committee to begin preparing for a possible shutdown.

Well..... military trials are not my first option.  I would just prefer indefinite detention until cessation of hostilities, but the masses (if not the law) seem to require it.

I don't think Boehner is for shutting down the government.

Well. He didn't get that standing ovation yesterday for telling his cronies to NOT prepare for a shutdown, did he?

I think you have that reversed.. it's the troops who are trying (and succeeding) to rally him into shutting it down...

Well the Prez said he wasn't going to sign a one week CR, so I guess he's the one shutting it down!

no, it's still the people chanting "Shut it down" and rallying people around that slogan..It's still the people giving standing ovation when told a shutdown might happen..  not to mention the ones saying they will only agree with a budget that each and every GOP members agrees on without any dissent, can't have any Dem support or compromise at all showing..

Like Matthews said, you can't really pin a 'government' shutdown on the same person you've spend 3 years labeling a Big-government loving, Socialist.. because him wanting shut it down kinda defeats his big government,socialist agenda..

Why? I told y'all about it in the 8th hour?

I heard from a friend in DC that the republicans have caved, the Planned Parenthood provision Boehner has been denying all day is not the sticking point has been tabled, and the shutdown will be averted.

More soon as I get it.

THEN

Quote
In an October 2010 report for FoxNews.com, reporter Jason Robinson interviewed the "rap legend" and told him, "your music is very positive. And you're known as the conscious rapper. How important is that to you, and how important do you think that is to our kids?"


NOW

Quote
Michelle Obama is under fire from conservative media outlets for inviting to the White House a rapper who once called for the burning of George W. Bush.
 
Common, whose real name is Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr., will make an appearance at an event celebrating American poetry on Wednesday.
 
The backlash came quickly. Fox News called the Grammy-Award winning artist "vile," and right-leaning Matt Drudge featured the item prominently on his website under the headline "First Lady to host rapper who talks of killing cops, burning Bush."
 
And The Daily Caller, a website run by conservative pundit Tucker Carlson, posted a sampling of offensive Common lyrics.
 
"With that happening, why they messing with Saddam? Burn a Bush cos' for peace he no push no button. Killing over oil and grease, no weapons of destruction," Common says in "Letter To the Law," evidently referring to the former president. In another song, he reportedly urges the killing of police.
 
The First Lady's press office did not immediately return requests for comment.
 
Even former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin weighed in on the event, tweeting "Oh lovely, White House," followed by a link to the Daily Caller article.
 
Common is from the President's hometown of Chicago. In 2008, he appeared in a video called "Yes We Can," created in support of Obama's presidential campaign.
 
He received a Grammy in 2003 for Best R&B Song for "Love of My Life" with Erykah Badu. He was awarded a second Grammy for Best Rap Performance for "Southside," which featured Kanye West in 2007.
