He is saying that since we can’t agree how to deal with our exploding debt bomb we should just give up trying and give him a credit card without limit. Yeah, that’s sound policy.
How about, NO, and let’s NOT raise the limit so we can enjoy some drama?
“It was the reluctance of congressional Republicans to agree to such an increase in 2011 without deep spending cuts that brought the nation to the brink of default.”
No bias here, right?
Who needs the Congress when Obama is King?
On CNBC this morning, Steny Hoyer, the old bull moose Democrat, gave a ringing endorsement of Boehner, and what a fine job he is doing. The Democrats know they can roll him just as they’ve done in the past.
If the Republicans don’t dump him as Speaker in the next Congress, every one of them should be replaced in ‘14.
Right, and give me another credit card without a credit check!
I saw one of these recently at a Save Mart in Sacramento.. Democrats are testing the new shopping cart each will receive once Obama has authority to raise debt limit 'without drama'.
The GOP should be having a collective cartwheeling sh*tf*t all over Capitol Hill!
Instead the quisling Boehner is throwing the Conservatives under the bus again, stripping the conservatives in the House of key committee posts.
Leadership needs to stop talking process, and starting making it clear that Obama is dangerous in his unwillingness to address spending. No more ‘nice guy, but...’ tactics. It doesn’t work pretending like there are common goals between the parties in this negotiation.
In other words, the Commie-in-chief wants Congress to immunize him against reaction of the free-markets by helping keep it quiet and low-key.
My contempt for this thieving prick knows no bounds and it grows every day.
Obama just isn't working at his job.
He sounds like a spacey teenager!
Walk quietly and don’t cause drama as you board the boxcars.
As long as Tammy Faye Boehner is Speaker of the House Obama has clear sailing ahead.
Of all the countries that tried to kill this nation and faied,all it took to do so was a black pResident and his friends.
It was the reluctance of congressional Republicans to agree to such an increase in 2011 without deep spending cuts that brought the nation to the brink of default. The result was a historic lowering of the U.S. credit rating and a setback to the recovery from a recession that ended in 2009.
The Credit rating dropped because the democrats refused to get spending under control, which meant we'd have to keep raising our "debt ceiling" whenever we hit it. Which means we don't have a debt ceiling, and we can't control our debt, or repay it. That is what makes us a credit risk. Nobody thinks we'd default on our current debt if we "hit" a debt limit.
And the recovery of course is on hold because Obama is killing the economy, and has nothing to do with the fight over the debt limit, except that the AGREEMENT didn't get spending under control, and that was a negative impact to the economy.
