The "commission" means nothing without the backing of law that requires government to enact any of the suggestions.

But I do suspect this will be the expiration date on Obama's promise not to raise taxes on the middle class.

It's beyond credulity. The sad part about this is that there are people out there who are going to believe that Obama is actually doing something. LOL! If I were an Obama supporter I would be embarrased and hide my face. Even Elenor Cliff has to be gaging on this latest "Big Lie" from the anti-christ.

Appointing a commission of has beens who couldn't be elected dog catcher to, in effect, invesigate himself so that he could look like he's a responsible President is CRAZY.

And if any of you out there think that any Nuclear Power Plants are going to be built I have a bridge to sell you cheap.

We need to start impeachment proceeding on that jackass. Dear God!!
We had better defeat every politician who had anything to do with voting for ANY of Obama's policies.

Dude...

As good as it probably sounds, gross incompetence is hardly a "high crime or misdemeanor."

Besides, he has cohorts.
