Senator Barack Obama Explaining his 2006 Vote Against Raising the Debt Limit (Jan 4, 2011)
NRO ^ | January 4, 2011 11:49 A.M | Andrew C. McCarthy

Posted on 01/12/2012 2:15:40 PM PST by DJ MacWoW

From Sen. Obama’s Floor Speech, March 20, 2006:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

At the time, Senator Obama was urging Congress not to tolerate an increase that would bring the debt ceiling to $9 trillion. Under President Obama, the debt ceiling has been raised to $14.3 trillion. Even without counting most unfunded liabilities, the national debt is now calculated to be nearing $14.1 trillion. It increases about $4.22 billion per day (each citizen’s share stands at roughly $45K). Thus, Democrats will soon demand that the debt ceiling be raised, lest the sky fall. When they do, they will be asking for a significant boost in a ceiling that is already 60 percent higher than the one Barack Obama said was “a sign of leadership failure” five years ago.

Obama wants to again raise the debt ceiling. He needs to be reminded of what failed leadership is. He is the epitome of it. However, I believe that he intends to bring down America. Debt is one way to do it.

Obama never pays attention to what he says. The things he says never mean anything anyway. He never listens to to what he says .He has no clue what he says.

but but but it’s unpatriotic to put our children into debt he said.

Now imagine we actually had a free and fair media/press?

His numbers would be in the teens and certainly not where they are now.

This corrupt media have a lot of explaining and hope we get some day in my life that it becomes public how these lot worked with the white house to get him elected.

Reminding a thief and liar that he is a thief and a liar only reinfoces the hubris by which he feeds his sick ego in order to remain a thief and a liar.

Debt is one way to do it.

Cutting our military is another way. He's making a lot of progress with his agenda.

He is. It will take someone fearless and knowledgeable to undo it. And that’s not looking promising.

The article just below this in breaking news:
“Obama asks Congress for $1.2 trillion increase in nation’s borrowing limit”

Will the media notice this contradiction?

(I know, dumb question. They will choose to ignore it.)

Every Republican Senator should go on the floor and repeat his words verbatim. Maybe someone will notice.

Wait until inflation kicks in and he destroys the dollar. Every time I hear one of the am talkers refer to Zero as a President in over his head and/or how inexperienced he is I want to barf - he knows exactly what he is doing and his puppet master certainly know the end result they are striving for.

They should take his direct text (updated with today’s number) and send it back to him. Let Obama argue with himself.

And when he does every Repub should get in front of every single microphone or TV camera they can find and point out that their responses are just Obama’s own words.

Thanks for taking the time to post this thread!!

I’ve “bookmarked it” and already sent it out to two friends!!

If this quote doesn’t get thrown back in Barry’s face by some reporter at “Carney’s Daily Carnival”, I’ll be really surprized.

We need every member of Congress to get up and make the same speech that then Senator Obama made in 2006. Word for word. That would set heads to explode now wouldn’t it?!

Stalinists lie. In America, they prefer to be called Alinskyites.

It isn’t about making a pervasive argument or having any principles.

There is the material for an ad for the GOP, if they can find it. I’m sure video exists, although You Tube long ago took them all down.

“He never listens to to what he says .He has no clue what he says.”
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

As strange as that sounds it does seem to be the case. He reminds me of a young punk who owned a tiny company that I accidentally found myself working for for a few months when there seemed to be no other immediate option. He lied with total abandon, seeming to have no idea of the difference between truth and lies. During my first few days of employment I quoted something he had said and a coworker who had been with the company a couple of years broke out laughing at the idea that I even took him seriously. When he realized my confusion he explained that the man was prone to say anything and everything and most of what he said he immediately forgot within the next few minutes. He would speak of elaborate plans as if he meant to follow through with them and it meant no more than if he had simply observed that the weather is nice today. I think he would have sworn in court to tell the truth and then lied about everything. When I accepted the job he listened to someone else tell me how badly they needed me right in the area where I lived, he didn’t open his mouth to say anything different. Within one month of my first day he told me that I needed to relocate because he didn’t have enough work for me where I was. I wound up leaving him and starting a business as his competitor. Obama seems to be very much the same sort except that this guy did at least manage to keep a business running, I don’t think obama has a single clue about business of any size or type.
