    WASHINGTON — House Republicans, among them the head of a key oversight panel, threatened Friday to call Cabinet secretaries and other executive agency managers before congressional hearings on how furloughs are applied in the wake of forced spending cuts.

    The lawmakers warned President Barack Obama against choosing political gain over public safety in deciding which federal employees are assigned the periods of unpaid leave as a result of $85 billion in automatic cuts that began Friday.

    “If they’re laying off TSA agents and air-traffic controllers, and yet (Transportation Secretary) Ray LaHood’s office is still getting cleaned each night, come on,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, chairman of the regulatory subcommittee of the House Oversight Committee.

    “The fundamental mission of the president of the United States is to ensure the security of this nation,” Jordan said. “That’s got to be his top priority.”

    Threats mean nothing to a wannabe usurper.

    He'll do whatever he thinks is to HIS advantage. The good of the people and the country don't matter.

    That's been evident since the day he said he'd transform this nation.

    You're concerned about polls? Anyway you slice it, thats still playing politics.

    How high does Jesus rank in the polls today?
    How high did He rank in the "polls" of His day?

    Did He yield to popular opinion when the crowds shouted "Crucify him!"
