Obama Talks Shutdown with Troops: Congress Has Failed You — VIDEO

Troops_obama

President Obama released a video message to U.S. troops as the government shut down last night.

Said Obama:

“Every time, you’ve met your responsibilities and performed with extraordinary professionalism, skill and courage...Unfortunately, Congress has not fulfilled its responsibility. It has failed to pass a budget and, as a result, much of our government must now shut down until Congress funds it again.”

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. If they had a C-in-C they liked they might give a flip. At least he's going video messages and not in-person appearances where they sit on their hands and have to be prodded to react.

  3. Ah who cares really?

    It's not like the US is in any recognisable sense a functioning democracy any more.

    As long as corporate interests are taken care of then the government cares not 1 bit about the population.

  6. "all the the Democrats faults"
    There's a new RNC troll at Towleroad, and this time they couldn't even find one who is literate.

  7. Hi, ECHTKULTIG:

    Rowan is being sarcastic.

    Sometimes you think that the sense in which you're writing a comment comes across to all that read it. Sometimes it doesn't. It happens to me all the time.

  8. I'm not a fan of this congress, but Mr. President is also weak. Both the executive branch and congress get to rile up their true believer fan base with this silly 'shut-down'.
