Does a tree make a sound when it falls in the forest.
HEY NEWT STFU!
Just another sellout RINO, striving for mediocrity
He said this before on the ABC Sunday show This Week not long ago.
Well its not hard to imagine House Rs getting beat on this just like the last time. Never lost $$$ predicting that.
Except in 2011 O facing re-election gave them a face saving fig called Budget Control Act.
This time he seems determined to totally humiliate them by giving them nothing for the extension. Will see if he is bluffing, although he knows that talk like that just eggs them on.
Newt’s 15 minutes of fame expired long ago, so he needs to revive it.
People call him conservative, but I never thought so. He’s just another blowhard who will take any position, so long as doing so benefits him in some way.
Newt’s right on this one. The debt is wholely owned by the Congress who authorized every single spending bill which has brought us to this point. Congress should take responsibility for their craziness and either shut the spending down or STFU and raise the ceiling to cover the crap that they have authorized.
GOP idea of taking on Obama, we know it well:
1) Talk tough, brag about demands
2) Take symbolic votes that never see law
3) Give in, cave, give up,..
4) Plenty of hand wringing and wailing, fantasize that someone wants Bohners job.
He and Calista have evolved on gay marriage and fiscal sanity. They also write children’s books and cash beltway checks.
You know, the Conservative choice.
There really is no difference between the two parties.
No current banking instution on the planet would approve a loan application with financial data resembling the credit worthiness of the US Fed. Scale it down to the average Joe and run the debt to equity ratios and revolving debt along with the income Vs obligation numbers. You couldn't get approved for a Tic Tac line of credit with that history.
I guess the only time (R)s might think it’s acceptable to negotiate is during Obama’s Impeachment hearing.
If no one wants to see the country default on its debts, why do so many continue to permit the country to borrow money we cannot ever hope to repay?
1. P-KB3 P-K4
2. GOP resigns
This is where his premise is false. Obama DOES want to see the USA collapse financially. Its part of the Cloward-Piven plan to insure revolutionary success for the Marxists.Total collapse=total chaos= demand for total governement. He is mostly there now.
The GOPe have a habit of starting fights then giving up. If you are going to start something have a plan going in and stick to it.
The real Newt showing his true colors (again).
The arguing going on now seems to be over (a) not raising the debt limit at all or (b) raising it extravagently.
What’s needed is significant spending cutting and then raising the debt limit only enough to cover any shortfall.
In other words, the arguing should be over where spending can be cut. Additional borrowing needs fall out of the conclusions of that arguing.
Interest on the debt is only 7% of the budget. With no increase in the debt limit just pay the debt first then prioritize the rest of the budget to match the funds available. This is what everyone else must do and this is the responsibility of the Congress in passing a budget.
