If McConnell thinks this plan will give him political cover amongst independents, he’s a fool. The American people aren’t that stupid. You can’t give the President power to do something and then act like you opposed it. That’s just plain idiotic.
They would not just ACT like they opposed it.
And Obama will then own it. Debt hikes...NO CUTS. Plain and simple for all to see.
I’m going with McConnel on this one.
Obama knows 10% unemployment and a recession is inevitable at this point. If the debt ceiling is not raised Obama and the media will blame it on the Republicans and all economic woes will be dump in the laps of the GOP? And, yes the American people are that STUPID. Why do you think a vacuous, neophyte, coke head, puppet was elected president with vague promises of change?
Raise it now and let Obama wallow in the economic excrement he and the Dems created. Once a real fiscal conservative is elected president, cut, cut, cut.
