Skip to comments.Obama: Raise the Debt Ceiling Or We're in Trouble
Posted on 10/08/2013 2:34:22 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that the U.S. economy risks a very deep recession if Congress doesnt raise the $16.7 trillion debt ceiling.
Speaking at a news conference at the White House, Obama said hes willing to talk to Republicans about anything, including changes to his health-care law, once lawmakers end the partial government shutdown and increase the countrys borrowing authority.
No American president would deal with a foreign leader like this, he said, according to Bloomberg News. Most of you would not deal with either coworkers or business associates in this fashion. We shouldnt be dealing this way here in Washington.

You're saying publicly that shutting down the government and keeping it shut down will cause a deep recession, and our mangy little dog, too? Surrender, Dorothy, or else? But that's talking down the economy.
What you mean “we,” kemosabe?
This from a twerp who knows nothing about economy!
By my way of thinking, we have been in a recession/depression plus inflation for the past 5 years. There has been no real economic growth.
What’s this we stuff?
This is largely his debt, his economy.
Y'don't need no allowance increase.
Me: Stop spending so much money or we're in trouble.
“we” = the kleptocrats

Quotes of President Barack Obama on the Budget, Deficit, Debt and Deficit Ceiling
But the debt ceiling is a law that he says must be changed.
Why can some laws be changed and some laws can't be changed?
Don’t negotiate until Air Force One is grounded, All Presidential vacations are canceled and all Presidential golf courses are closed.
Why aren’t some laws enforced, such as immigration, or DOMA, while others are?
Yeah, raise the debt ceiling so this glorified crackhead can send Air Force One on a round trip flight to fetch the family dog to Hawaii. Raise the debt so more sensitivity luncheons can be held in the White House for transsexuals and state dinners for countries that don’t show up.
But the "average American" thinks increasing the debt ceiling increases the debt. How can they be so stupid?
Let’s not forget IRS field offices. Those have to go down. Also, stop paying those bozos erecting road blocks in front of national parks. If they want to volunteer for this essential service, that’s their business.
Heeee’p! He gots him a gun!
That's not correct. The House decides on funding. It's bad enough that the bill was rammed through with a "deem and pass." Perhaps the reason they did it without funding was so it would pass muster later as funding originated by the House. But, they didn't fund it when they passed it.
It was my read, from the day he walked into the Oval Office, that he was WAY over his head with just about every issue.
His only area of expertise is/was racial politics. The stupid voters wanted a "black" man...and in this country being half and half makes one ALL black. I hate racial politics and all those victim groups who whine about....well, never mind, you get my drift.
If we can't make do with the trillions we have coming in, start shutting things down. This time, don't start with the military.
If you have not seen this, you should. One of the best youtube videos ever, and directly about the subject at hand. It is also extremely entertaining and only three minutes long.
Less than two months into President Obama’s second term, new numbers show the national debt increased by more than $6 trillion since he took office.
It’s the largest increase to date under any U.S. president. During the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush, the debt soared by $4.9 trillion.
Without fanfare, the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department quietly posted its daily debt report showing the total public debt of the U.S. government topped $16.687 trillion. (To be exact: $16,687,289,180,215.37)
On January 20, 2009, the day Mr. Obama took office, the debt stood at $10.626 trillion. The latest posting reflects an increase of over $6 trillion.

I’m so confused. Didn’t this same idiot, as Senator in 2006, say increasing the debt limit was irresponsible and just a tool of evil Republicans to run up Bush debt?
Harry Reid said the same back then.
“Its un-patriotic! Its un-American!!”
The more and larger lies Zer0 tells, the larger his ears get.
More and more Obama sounds like a junkie.
“Man, I just have to have more money! I got needs!”
And as with being addicted to heroin, such addiction to insane amounts of money does not end well.
Maybe SNL can rip it off in a week or two.
Yes, Mr. Soetoro, you and and your goon squad is is deep, deep trouble. Especially if your credit card is maxed out and you can't buy your Amish friends those spiffy gadgets they don't need.
No more Amish pot warmers or gold plated horseshoes. Oh the horror!!
Did you morph the pic on the right with Don Knots, or is he just starting to look a lot like a high-strung small-town deputy sheriff with an overactive imagination?
2013 Obama looks like Barney.
Nah. The debt ceiling is the law of the land. It shouldnt be changed.
what doesn’t this hard head get about no hell no
The American people refuse to negotiate with you until you resign from the office of the President. Then we will negotiate as long as you want.
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Evil Republicans were running up Bush debt to pay for an unjust war against terrorism and Islam, just because some Islamists attacked America in the name of their religion. That’s the most oppressive crime perpetrated by the West since the British suppressed the Thugist sect in India in the 1820s, and like that campaign by imperialist Britain, it was not right to raise the US debt ceiling to pay for it.*
* All “just-a-cotton-pickin-minit” posts by E5 should be construed by readers to be followed by a sarc tab, even if it is omitted in the actual body of the text, so as to avoid dampening the impact of the satiric content until the readers realize of their own accord that it is meant as satire. An actual sarc tab would arrest that process in the average reader. This warning will be repeated from time to time, to avoid less swift freepers writing Jim and calling for my zotting. He is recovering from surgery, and should not be bothered with such things at present.
I’ve been thinking the exact same thing.
You so-and-so. Said what I wanted to, first post out of the gate.
I pray every day for forbearance, because it was Jim that always stood between me and the Mods. They’d have iced me years ago, given the chance.
So restraining the government from reckless spending will push the economy into recession? How can we be pushed into one we haven’t recovered from?
People who do other people wrong do eventually get into trouble.
Those are just his Reggie Love handles.
In no more trouble than a family who overspent their debt limit and suddenly started to take control!
Keep crying “wolf,” fool.
The House of Representatives is not a 'co-worker'..
What part of 'Three Equal Branches of Government' does this putz not understand?
He needs to get a refund from Hahhhvard..for a Constitutional Scholar, he didn't learn shit..
Boehner is getting pounded on Twitter. If anyone here tweets, he needs positive tweets to #staystrong against #HarryReidsShutdown.
