"It's almost like they don't give a damn,"
"The Oscar-winning director who's also known for his tough-guy roles asked rhetorically, "If they don't give a damn, why did they expect anybody else to?"

"With the deal to avoid the "fiscal cliff" barely in the rearview mirror, President Barack Obama and Republican leaders are on the clock again, scrambling to compromise on a package to replace the already-postponed automatic government spending cuts due to kick-in next month."

"Yesterday in senate hearings, testimony showed that after the initial discussion at the White House, neither Obama nor Hillary were heard from until the next day. That means that for 7 hours the firefight continued culminating in 4 deaths including our ambassador with Obama and the Secretary of State no where to be found. Incomprehensible, yet true. Clint's empty chair was SPOT ON. Clint is not only a Patriot, he is 100 percent on his game. Obama is "present" when a photo op is scheduled, but the hard stuff, no where to be found. EMPTY CHAIR, certainly."
