News Munchies with Ted Corless : Congress: Work Out the Budget Deficit or Suffer the Consequences of Having Jon Stewart as the... Go figure the day after a four-lane interstate bridge in Washington collapsed, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is using the incident to blame Republicans for the "dangerous consequences" of the sequestration spending cuts that started in March. Thursday's collapse, which sent vehicles tumbling into the Skagit River near Mount Vernon, about 60 miles north of Seattle, saw no fatalities.
Pelosi said in a press release that because of the sequester cuts, the Transportation Department has had to cut about $960 million from highway funds used to respond to infrastructure issues, even though more than 68,000 bridges across the country are rated "structurally deficient."
"For 62 days, the American people have waited for House Republicans to move forward with the budget process and replace the devastating sequester cuts that are slashing into our country's safety net, national security, and public infrastructure," Pelosi's office said in a press release. That's the key, Pelosi, blame the GOP.
Wilma Robinson Zazzali : Impeachment of Obama and Biden? What If? So back to my question, what happens if both Barack Obama and Joe Biden are impeached and removed from office?
Next in line for the Oval Office is the Speaker of the House which currently is Rep John Boehner. That would be a huge advantage for the Republican Party, but only if Boehner would actually align himself with the GOP instead of constantly compromising with the Democrats. 1 minute ago - View -

Good. I'm glad the DOJ sought out a reporter from a news station which blatantly lies and twists facts/figures in order to spread hatred and even more lies. At least Holder went about getting the emails in a legal manner. The GOP is going to turn this into a scandal when nothing scandalous has taken place. 9 minutes ago - View -

Eugene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon, said Tuesday he doesn’t think President Barack Obama “fully understands what traditional America is all about, because he didn’t literally grow up here,” and that he’s not sure Obama “wants America to be first.”
“I don’t think he fully understands what traditional America is all about, because he didn’t literally grow up here,” the Apollo 17 commander told Fox News’s Neil Cavuto. “I don’t think that I could convince him why this is important. I don’t know that he wants America to be first. I don’t know that he doesn’t want us to play on a more level playing field. I don’t know that he doesn’t care if Russia or China gets to the Moon and we’re dragging tailbone.”
Asked if he thinks Obama is listening to criticism of declining funding for space exploration, Cernan replied, “No, I don’t. I don’t think he understands what America and what the traditions have been, and what being the leader of the free world has meant to the people of this country. It goes downhill. We are what we are today and we have unique and special things that other countries don’t have because of what we have been for the last 230-some odd years.”
He added: “We could give billions of dollars away to rescue a car company and we never get half of it back, but we can’t find a little money here and there to recreate the technology that [is needed] to challenge the future.”
Cernan also said he has “been offered an opportunity to be part of” the GOP convention in Tampa.

Angela McGuire : Timeline Photos This is a good reason not to vote GOP. They've been blocking infrastructure bills for years--afraid it would boost the economy and Obama would look even better. They don't seem to care about bridges--a real shame.
