January 21, 2013

Two years ago, President Barack Obama warned that unless he got his way from Congress with an unqualified increase in the national debt ceiling, terrible things would happen....

laker88, you may be right but if I was responsible for the deaths at Benghazi I would be crying constantly not just faking it in front of congress. She will likely be the next president as the 47% is now more like 67%... just what the LIBERALS ordered! Now you can take care of everyone and tax anyone that has still a job until it all fails. You must be proud!

wow 10 lemmings like Barry, or at least they want to keep him. somewhat understandable if you think of pres. Plugs Biden. That's almost as scary as Barry. But Hilary is doing a good job of digging her own grave.

Thank you Tot..Your labeling of Hillary Clinton as a "liberal" was most amusing. Also, Hillary could have defeated any/all of the woeful gop candidates in the Repub primary travelling road show.

...Still waiting for details on all the expenditures our current President has cut. Now this ones good...'I seem to hear Republicans say 'cut,cut,cut without ever mentioning Social Security or soldiers'. Translation from lib-speak to English....We don't like any of your proposals no matter what you propose therefore you have not proposed anything. That's too funny rs, you always manage to live up to my low expectations. Carry on....please.

TiredOfTax, what does that have to do with the topic here? Are you going to give me a spun answer that somehow ties into it?

So did everyone watch poor Hillary testify, under oath and still not tell the truth. It does not matter now just how they died but it sure does matter that we were misled from Sept 11th until the debate where Obama backed off his lie and got the moderator to fight his battle for him. It these were republicans you left winger would have the noose around their necks, cut they are liberals so it is ok? This is all crap just like we have come to expect from THIS administration!

Laker, Obama makes things look bad, then blames others, then you say it, so it must be true. Simplistically yours, TOT

Tot...Your post makes no sense, to the point of being bizarre. You address me, but then your comment has no relevance to my post, let alone offer a rebuttal.

There ya go 88 right back on the lamestream. As long as they say what Obama wants them to you drink it up... red solo cup democrats! I say that the problem is sensationalizing it like Obama has done with everything. If it ain't bad enough lets make it worse, that is Obama!

you are wrong was the stalling of the teabaggers that got our credit rating lowered...while ALL the major economists said that if we didn't, it would be devastating...and while many repubs became even more vocal then the Dems toward their extremist faction.

Dave, the republicans have passed several budgets, but the senate will not even bring them up for a vote, saying that they wouldn't pass. It is my understanding that you reject ones plan and present your own to revise theirs. It is called working together. Any way you cut it it falls on the President and Senate democrats that are holding up the budget. And the president saying he cant pay the bills if the ceiling isn't passed is wrong. He can't pay them all but his lies earned us a credit downgrade, and if he does it again he should be impeached.

Many are hammering Obama for not submitting a budget. He did. Many are hammering the Democratically controlled Senate for not presenting a budget. That's valid. But what of the House? There is a House Budget Committee that must also pass a budget. Is that OK because the House has a Republican majority? Paul Ryan is the chairman of the House Budget Committee. No, they are just as much at fault as the Senate. The problem here doesn't lie with the president, the problem is Congress.

Rs, with every one of your posts you give me the power to define you with words. Your real life actions or deeds are of no consequence. As long as you willingly give up that power to me and others you will continue to be uninteresting and not at all compelling. Then again, it could be that the trophy generation was never taught NEVER let ANYONE define you. You define yourself and continue that for life.

MrBoB51, on the note of 'proving it with facts', I have tried a few times to prove things here by citing proper information on other topics. You and your 'team' just keep coming back and saying 'nope, that's a lie', which either means you're simply refusing to see and accept facts or you're brain isn't capable of processing them.

"Many of you are anti progressive and look for anything to bash them" Remember, if you're not progressive you're against progress. More Lib-Speak. So go ahead and name the expenditures the President cut. It's not enough to say he did, prove it with facts

I'm still waiting for an answer as to why there has not been a passed budget for 4 years? The only one presented was defeated in the Senate 99 to 1. Nothing since then. So where's the Constitutionally Mandated Budget? Oh, and Dave, Congress can't submit their own budget, it starts and ends with the President. There sure are a lot of people who don't know the responsibilities of each Branch of Government.'s not what you think it should be according to your desires of the moment.

The debt ceiling has been raised many times over the years to meet payments that CONGRESS has approved, yet we blame the president for asking it to continue to be raised to meet these obligations. Check the facts on where Obama has cut expenditures. There are many. I live near the space Center, so start there. Should we default in payment of these debts? And how is it scare tactics when the facts are that SS, military expenditures, etc. could not be paid. Many of you are just anti-progressive and look for anything to bash them.

OK disagrees how is my last post wrong? It is FACTS just like bs... I mean Rs requests. If by disagree you mean disgust in the actions of the president and senate, then I agree with your disagrees they are doing an awful job. now what do you thing about this: Joe Biden summoned more than 200 Democratic insiders to the vice presidential residence Sunday night to chat about the 2012 triumph — but many walked away convinced his rising 2016 ambitions were the real intent of the long, intimate night. Now THIS would be another HUGE disagee...HUGE!

And Dave, "Congress needs to pass a budget, with reduced spending." I absolutely agree! And applaud your reasonable reply! Lets start with a democrat one for a change, the R's have passed a bunch that Harry won't being up for a vote and O's went down without a single yea!

Rumor has it unless everyone stops paying in their taxes that that REVENUE will continue. If you are paying your bills and do not have money enough you need to decide who gets paid, you also have to make deals and pay the interest on those HUGE loans so that default isn't the result. I suggest that Obama goes to the table and starts doing some of those cuts that he promised in the debates... the ones that he said now will not happen. Also I suggest that democrats in the senate go ahead and pass a budget, I am sure that they can get some republican help to remember how to PASS A BUDGET!
