Executive Office of the President - Office of Management and Budget

"The Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 1363, making appropriations for the Department of Defense for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2011, and for other purposes...If presented with this bill, the President will veto it."

Lets do a little housekeeping here:
1.  The OMB is a function of the office of the President and does nothing without his approval...So, this came from Obama.
2.  The President, Senate and the House are in a budget spat, because in 2010 the Democrats running all three didn't bother to make a budget for 2011.  They didn't because they knew if they made their normal ridiculous budget they would have lost even worse in the 2010 election, and if they didn't make their normal budget their Liberal base would have been pissed off...As of tomorrow night the current federal government funding mechanism will end, and the government will shut down until they figure out a budget to fund the rest of this fiscal year.
3.  H.R. 1363 is a measure passed by the Republican controlled House to fully fund our military until the end of the fiscal year (September 30)...It's pretty certain the 49 Republican senators will vote for this measure, and I can't believe at least two Democrats won't do so as well.

So, here we go, if they can't figure out a budget resolution the government will shut down Friday at midnight.  AND OUR TROOPS WON'T BE GUARANTEED THEIR PAY!!!!

The House has passed a bill to assure they do, and it will surely get through the Senate to the President's desk to be signed...AND OBAMA VOWS TO VETO IT!!!

You have got to be shitting me!?!?!  This son of a bitch wants to play politics with our soldiers!  Our soldiers who are in harms way throughout the whole damn world!  Is he out of his fucking mind?  He's the damn Commander-in-Chief; a C-in-C who has decided to keep our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan (rightfully) as well as enter them into a new fray in Libya (no comment), yet he sees these honorable and brilliant men and women as nothing more than pawns in his little pissing match.

To say he isn't worthy of the office is an understatement; to say he is anything less than a disgrace is an understatement, too.

I see no way the House and Senate agree on a budget by Friday night, so it'll be interesting to see if Obama blinks on this matter.  If he doesn't he's going to have a huge problem.
