LT. COL. ALLEN WEST weighed in on the government shut down. West said that this is a great time to start looking at what is essential in the government. “What are the priorities of the federal government?”West asked. He went on to state that 6.6 percent of the EPA was deemed essential, which is a little over 1,000 of the 16,000 people. “This is a great time for us to start looking and saying ‘What can we do to trim back the government?’”
With all earnest intent, I awaited hearing from President Obama just now. I was expecting the Chief Executive Officer of these United States of America to come out and present a vision, way ahead during this fiscal maelstrom. Instead the initial words were that of a whiner who just wants to have his way. Therefore, I muted Obama, as I am quite sure millions of Americans are doing. Sir, regardless of the polls that purport to measure your “likeability,” respect is given where respect is earned. And you’re not earning it right now.
In Washington DC there are three things that must be balanced: politics, policy, and procedure. We just witnessed the despicable failure of American stewardship by Harry Reid and the Senate liberal progressives in killing the House legislation that leveled the playing field for hardworking middle income American families. Instead, led by the egomaniacal, arrogant Barack Obama, Democrats have proven themselves hypocritical elitists who seek to abuse the American people in the political game of “blame checkers” to attain power. I think if Assad, Putin, or Rouhani were House Speaker there would have been more communication. The House GOP is focused on good policy, as Obamacare is an abysmal partisan piece of garbage. The House GOP should now follow regular order procedure and pass prioritized federal government spending bills. America, let us promise to never again elect as President any charismatic, community organizing liars who play lots of golf.
The sequester is not even 24 hours upon us and POLITICO is already warning us of the next fiscal crisis: government shutdown. So is Washington even in the business of governing anymore, or has it turned into a horrible reality show? Col. Allen B. West, Michelle Fields and John Phillips discuss. Plus, Bob Woodward cries wolf and Joan Rivers sticks her foot in her perfectly botoxed mouth.
