Saw this on another thread, but it’s worth the duplicate!
Attention GOP: This is how you grow a pair!

Every British child born owing GBP 20,000? Lower than an US child, by the time Zero is done.

Yes, I saw Brown’s grotesquely inappropriate reaction.
Not unlike Obama’s “gallows humor” snickering.

Wont happen to us because Obummer will just keep printing more until the dollar is worth zero which may have been the plan all along in this administration’s drive to destroy the country.

Watching Brown was a grotesque comedy.

How do these lightweight pantywaists ever get into a power position?

In Fiscal Year 2008, the U. S. Government spent $412 Billion of your money on interest payments* to the holders of the National Debt. Compare that to NASA at $15 Billion, Education at $61 Billion, and Department of Transportation at $56 Billion. -- As of 28 February 2009, the total interest spent so far this fiscal year is $148 Billion.

If Obama doubles the national debt during his four years, we will be spending almost a $1 trillion just to service the debt.

Failed gilt auction stokes fears over UK economy
The Government has suffered a major blow to its economic stimulus ambitions after an auction of Treasury gilts failed for the first time in more than a decade, underlining the market’s fears about the state of the nation’s finances.

How well-spoken. Would that our own representatives could rise to this level of intelligence and outspokenness.

Bravo!

The UK may be worse off than the rest of the EU but I doubt there are worse off than us. I wonder where Gordon (Obama Jr.) Brown stands with the British electorate right now.

You can pay now but next year you’ll get another bill when the $3.6 TRILLION 2010 Obama budget overspends our $1.3 TRILLION 2010 tax revenue by $2.3 TRILLION

After today’s gilt auction failed, I’d say Gordon Brown ought to be brought up on a confidence vote in Parliament.

Stick a fork in him, he is done.

When my hubby and I used to see him on telly....I would always say that Brown should NEVER wear a suit. He always looks disheveled. And that weird ‘tic’ he has of dropping his jaw as he rests between words drives me nuts.

No kidding, this needs to be seen by every person in the U.S., the very same things could be said about our situation. This outdoes Sarah Palin’s GOP convention speech. And he did it without a teleprompter.

How do these lightweight pantywaists ever get into a power position?

That is a question the English are asking themselves.

Brown is a Scot, Scotland has it's own parliament, but also sends MP's to Westminster.

Brown was elected by Scots to serve in the UK Parliament and assumed power as Prime Minister when Blair resigned. So the English are being ruled by a Scot that none of them voted for.

It' kind of like having a Kenyan President...

By George, you got it.

I really enjoyed this video. It was terrific watching this elegant and eloquent man hand the weasel his lunch.

The last time I saw one of ours stand up was Jeff Sessions during the amnesty debate when he referred to “The Masters Of The Universe”

We need to stand up to the Kenyan like this. He is a weasel just like Brown.

Not the British Parliament. Hannan is a MEP, not MP. This was a visit by Brown to address the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
